(Matt’s) top 10 albums of 2009

For the last post of the first year of my blog, I'd like to introduce you to my music geek friend Matt (not to be confused with my comic-book geek friend Another Matt, who also posts comments sometimes), and his recently launched blog, The B-Side.


My top 10 movies of 2009

I reserve the right to retroactively add "Adam" and "The Invention of Lying" to this list; living in a small town, I have to wait for DVD to see them. So these are my top 10 movies of 2009 as of this moment.


My top 10 TV shows of 2009

Although two shows on this list are much missed and a third ("Dollhouse") is on its way out, 2009 was generally a year when TV networks got smarter about marketing.

"Friday Night Lights" would've been canceled under the old system, but cost-sharing between DirecTV and NBC keeps it going into a fourth season. And "Glee," midway through its first season, has already pumped out two moneymaking soundtracks.
