2014 TOP TENS
I have been into making lists since I was about
12. I used to make lists of my Top 10 favorite
baseball players, comic books, songs, movies,
friends, TV shows, girls I wish I could have sex
with, professional wrestlers, rock ‘n’ roll bands
and family members. These lists were compiled
lovingly throughout the course of the year. Please
note the book and movie lists are comprised of
what I digested in 2014 no matter what year they
were released. (I watch everything at The Greenblatt
Cinema, located in my bedroom.) Also important
is the fact that these lists do not in any way reflect
anything other than my personal favorites. And,
as we all know, there’s no accounting for taste.
