Best of 2014

I was going to do a formal write-up for each of these three categories individually, but this year I thought it might be more fun to just simply list my personal top-ten picks. These best-of-the-year posts should be a lot more personal that people attribute them as, and I’ve just written about all these titles (albums to a lesser extent) throughout the year anyway. Through this tactic, I hope to encourage a great deal of discussion, and friendly debate…or not-so-friendly? Anywho, here are my picks for the films, shows, and albums that really did it for me in 2014
