2011 Favorites: Television

I know, I know, 2011 was SO last week, so I feel a little late to the game with this post, but what can you do? Thinking about it, I believe that this is a really good era for watching tv. Not just because I think there is more quality programming being made, but also…

30 DoB Day 14: Favorite Book Of Favorite Writer

While I had to put some thought into deciding who was my favorite author – deciding on Joyce Carol Oates – coming up with the answer to Day 14 of the 30 Days of Books was actually pretty easy. Day 14: Favorite Book of Favorite Writer The Mulvaney family was an upper middle class (maybe…

2009 Favorites — Television

I have to say, that I think 2009 was a very good year for television.  There were numerous quality shows that kept our DVR full around the year.  Enough so, that I felt badly that we didn't go through as many movies as I thought we would via Netflix.  Not enough hours in the day…

2009 Favorites — Photos

With getting back from the big trip over the holidays and getting things back up and running at The Aerie, I haven't had much chance to do something that I have enjoyed in the past couple of years — reviewing some of my favorite things from the past year.  Now, I know that in this…

Spend a Little Time “In Treatment”

I realized this weekend as I was happily setting the DVR to record the start of the second season of the HBO drama “In Treatment” that I was remiss in leaving this off my “2008 Favorites” list for TV. If you haven’t seen it, “In Treatment” follows the story of psychotherapist Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne*)…

2008 Favorites — Books

It was a pretty good year for book-reading at The Aerie, too.  This year I was able to get in 30 books (as opposed to last years’ 22)* – suggesting that it’s been a more leisurely year this year than last (and I think that’s true). It’s interesting, when I think of which books I…

In retrospect, I thought it was a pretty good year for TV.  Despite some crashes and burns (we’ve got about 8 episodes of “Heroes” backed up on DVR and can’t bring ourselves to watch them), we were rarely scratching our heads at The Aerie when we wanted to plop down and watch something.  God bless…

2008 Favorites — Movies

I think we probably watch about 90% of our movies via Netflix.  It’s a great thing.  Though it’s a little strange because we both like going out to the movies – I guess we just rarely prioritize it above other things that we have going on.  Either way, a couple of my favorite movies this…

2006 Favorites

Coming back on the flight from Dulles to San Diego on New Year's Day, I took out my trusty moleskine notebook and began jotting down ideas for bloggable things.  It's a long flight — the first thing was yesterday's post about the differences in roads and driving on the East and West Coasts, which seemed…
