Favorites of 2015

Scott D. Parker

Well, everyone seems to be in the mood for year-end best-of lists so I thought I’d join. Thing is, I didn’t read nearly as many books as I thought I did. Bummer. I plan on reading more in 2016.


Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush - Jon Meacham - I’m not finished yet, but I am really loving this biography.

Canary - Duane Swierczynki

The Thief - Clive Cussler

Concrete Angel - Patricia Abbott

Take Off Your Pants - Libbie Hawker

Raging Heat - Richard Castle


“Uptown Funk” - Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars - Bar none, the absolute favorite thing I listened all year this year. I have this song on constant rotation. At least once a week.

Songs in the Key of Life - Yo Yo Ma and Kathyrn Stott

Absolute Jest - John Adams

Sonic Highway - Foo Fighters

Tower of Power (1973)

Old New Borrowed and Blue - Slade


The Flash - Bar none, the absolute favorite thing I watched all year this year. I was a late comer to the show, having only watched it last spring, but quickly binged and got up-to-speed. Now, I can’t wait for Tuesdays to roll around. The season 1 finale had it all.




The Big Bang Theory (watching the entire series in order)


Star Wars: The Force Awakens (come on, is there any doubt this’ll be my fav film of the year?)

Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation

Jurassic World


Inside Out



Fat Man on Batman - Still my perennial favorite

I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere

Pod of Thunder (KISS podcast)

Hollywood Babble On


The Nerdist

Pods and Sods
