To celebrate an unforgettable year, here is my list of best of's
Best TV Show
HBO does it again. I am loving all things Lovecraft in 2020, and this was the adrenaline shot I needed.
Runner Up: The Expanse: Season 5
James S. A. Corey, The Expanse Book 5: Nemesis Games
What did you expect? As good as the show is, the books are even better.
Runner Up: John Scalzi, The Last Emperox (The Interdependency Book 3)
Tenet dir. Jonathan Nolan
I know people had un-even reactions to this movie, but it appealed to everything I love in Nolan movie.
Runner up: Palm Springs
Lily Hiatt - Walking Proof
A little twangy for my tastes, but this album consistently delivers
Halsey - Maniac
Gloomhaven: Jaws on the Lion, Celophair Games
So well made, and have a bi-weekly play group over Zoom has been a live saver.
Runner up: Unmatched
The Watch on the Riger Network
These guys are like long lost brothers to me at this point. Don't always agree with what they are watching, but I love to hear about it.
Best Audio Book
Children of Ruin, by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Book 2 exceeds the first one.
Best Android App
Best New Purchase
Saving money and the planet.
Amazon Echo Show 8
Huge upgrade the the original Echo Show.
Best 3d Print Model
Best Virtual Race
Best Video Game
Sorry, very late to the show on this one!
Best New Service
Pairs great with a stationary bike, however, the Yoga, HIIT, Weight and other workouts are fantastic.
The Cascades, Pembroke, Virginia
We did plenty of hikes in 2020, but good ol' Cascades still satisfies.
Best Web Tool
Start coding a Laravel (or any PHP) website in Windows with just one download.
Indivially packed, for when you need extra protection. Very comfortable.
