The 2011 Noah Awards

Two or three of you may remember that at the beginning of every year I used to email out a list of my favorite things of the year before. It’s been a long time since I’ve done this, but I want to do it again. I want to be clear, this is my experience of 2011. So, you may find one or two things from 2010, if I only discovered them in 2011.


Also, a few songs or movies might have to wait if I didn’t find them until 2012. I have about half a playlist of songs already set for my 2012 playlist (and it is mind-blowingly awesome so far.) Many of those songs came out in 2011, but I only discovered them in the last week or so, so they’ll have to wait. Check out Gotye and Awolnation to get a preview of next year’s playlist.
