Official “2011, Best Of” Friends of P Edition

Admittedly I wasn’t blisteringly excited to make this year’s list as compared to years past. Despite a surely ridiculous amount of comics, books, movies, video games, etc. devoured, and proving most pleasant to my palate.  Guess I’m past 2011, as 2012 offers The Dark Knight Rises, The Hobbit, more science, more ideas, more pizza, more Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, etc.

Film: Drive

Film Runner-up: Hubble 3D (technically 2010 but whatever) / Midnight in Paris

2011 Books in Review

From the looks of it 2011 was the year I read the rest of the Harry Potter series, a number of science titles, and took to a swath of Hitchens/Sagan/Orwell/Steinbeck (with notable exceptions for Woody Allen and The Hunger Games). This 2011 list doesn’t include the comics and poetry I’ve wasted lovingly enjoyed throughout the year. At any rate, Morrison’s Supergods was thee worst work I read and the best would have to go to Carl Sagan’s The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark.
