Favorites of 2011

Hi everyone! How are you guys? Are you excited for the new year? I am! Whenever a new year approaches, I get really excited to see whats going to happen. It's like a new're not sure what to expect, but you're dying to flip the next page.

Well, I originally planned to have my 'favorites of 2011' to be divided into three separate posts, but time was against me and I had a couple posts I wanted to post beforehand. *sighs* Oh well, I'll just jam pact this post with my three categories of 'favorites'.

Alright, there are three different categories: 1. Music 2. Movies and 3. Books (of course). I nominated about five or so to each 'favorite' and slowly and carefully eliminated one by one until there was a single nominee left. If there was a tie I used to help me break the tie. ^.^ BY THE WAY, these are of my own personal opinion...shall we begin?

I simply adore Adele! Even though the majority of her songs make me want to jump off a cliff, I still enjoy them. Red Cliff was such a good movie.

Happy New Year!

Adele! Hell yeah! That's my favorite album of the year as well. Her Royal Albert Hall DVD/CD are awesome as well. I'm going to add Mistress of Rome to my TBR. Have a safe New Year's Eve and I hope your 2012 is full of awesome.

Former gang members from Afrika Bambataa's Universal Zulu Nation would rap at these block parties and when gangs
pitted against each other, they would "break" (dance).
