Something I just want to do, not really a meme, but if anyone wants to drop their own answers below, I'd love to hear them!

New Things (For Me) in 2012
or - How I Discovered Things Which Are No Longer Cool Years Late


Best Book

You know, although at the time I read them, I gave both CJ Cherryh's Betrayer and Janny Wurts's Initiate's Trial better ratings overall, Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men In a Boat is the one I keep pimping out to friends and relatives.

(Probably helps that it's not the 50-gazillionth in a series, like the other two are.)


Best Movie

Argo

I really loved Lincoln as well, but Argo just had me on the edge of my seat for half the movie, and I actually caught myself muttering at the screen (managed to stop myself from shouting) in the theater, which I just don't do because it's rude to the other viewers. XD


Best TV Show

Sherlock (BBC)

Just. Watch it.


Best Singer/Group

Mumford and Sons

Love everything by them that I've heard, but am particularly in love with "White Blank Page."

Her white blank page
and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, to the brink
You desired my attention, but denied my affections, my affections




They're kind of my Spike+Buffy OTP group.


Best Album

B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray

This album is just such an intriguing mix of styles, and it's really interesting.

We're trapped inside the matrix
Forced to play our hand
We're filled with so much hatred
The kids don't stand a chance



Best Song

I know it was over-played on the radio (or I suppose it must have been, because we were inundated with it on the military station in Japan), but I found "We Are Young" in my head all the time. It's just an intriguing 20-somethings' anthem.

I know you’re trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home







Okay, and so it's my EWE Draco+Harry anthem. I totally blame that fic.
