Looking back at 2015!
  1. Favorite TV show: I'm currently watching Fox's The Last Man On Earth because Kristen Schaal is awesome.
  2. Favorite Movie: I watched The Martian last week. Amazing!
  3. Favorite Book: This year I read Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo and think everyone should read it. Also read Bowling Alone, an important analysis of the decay of social capital in america.
  4. Favorite Video: My kids watch the heck out of Ariana Grande's Break Free! It's in space.
  5. Favorite "Current Event": Oh gosh, so many good ones. I'm going to go ahead and nominate fundamentalist Christians in mega-cheater databases as my favorite for 2015 though, for sure.

I was introduced to Johnny Got His Gun by a junior high substitute teacher, who read to us from it. I agree that it is a remarkable and essential book.

As for Bowling Aline, I think Putnam has some good points but they don't completely match my experience.

We watched The last Man of Earth until very recently. I don't know, I think it started going in directions that we couldn't get interested in.

I was looking at Johnny Got His Gun just a few days ago, because my sister had told me about the movie, Trumbo,. She said the movie was very good. So I was thinking of reading the book, as well as seeing the movie.

Kristen Schall is awesome. Whenever I hear the commercial for that show, I picture Louise.

I enjoyed the Martian, have you seen interstellar yet?! It's very interesting, and even good!
