Worst best/worst list ever

You know I would never use this blog to inflict a year-end best/worst list on you. But Bob Sassone invited me to submit one to his blog, so here's what I dashed off. I should note that I have not yet seen the three films I've looked forward to most all year: Pan's Labyrinth, Children of Men and The Queen. Also, I have only read books with pictures.


So what about you. What's on your list?

Children of Men is fantastic. I saw it a couple of months ago when it opened here in Australia, and have been wanting to see it again.

My top twenty albums of the year according to a couple of online places...I might belatedly add Taylor Swift's album somewhere around 12 or so and Margaret Berger is closer to #6 now (sorry Ferg). Really like Y's but not sure where it'd fit on my list (still undigested), haven't heard all of Modern Times but enjoyed it over lunch the other day. I'd STRONGLY recommend Marit's album (former M2M).

1. Marit Larsen - Under the Surface
2. The Ark - State of the Ark
3. Paris Hilton - Paris
4. The Veronicas - Secret Life Of...
5. Amy Diamond - Still Me Still Now
6. Fergie - The Dutchess
7. My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade
8. Phoenix - It's Never Been Like That
9. BWO - Halcyon Days
10. Margaret Berger Pretty Scary Silver Fairy
11. Girl Talk - Night Ripper
12. Pink - I'm Not Dead
13. Miranda! - Sin Restricionnes
14. Marie Serneholt - Enjoy the Ride
15. Dixie Chicks - Taking the Long Way
16. Lillix - Inside the Hollow
17. Fefe Dobson Sunday Love
18. Arctic Monkeys Whatever Yadda Yadda Yadda
19. LCD Soundsystem - 45:33
20. Devo 2.0 Devo 2.0

I think his new(ish) comic book Ex Machina about a superhero who becomes president of post-9/11 new york is even better. I just discovered it way later than the cool kids, but if you just found Y the Last Man, then maybe this one slipped under your radar too.

Yeah, I tried Ex Machina after I got into Y, but it didn't quite do it for me. It's intriguing, but lacks a certain mythological resonance. (Also, Giuliani only thought he was president of New York. The rest of us still call them 'mayors.')

I thought Pride of Baghdad was very powerful, however.
