Only nine. I will try to do better this year.
  1. "Nietzsche on Morality" by Brian Leiter
    The best piece of scholarship on Nietzsche that I have read. Roots his thinking clearly in the naturalist tradition and rescues him from the post-modernists.
  2. "On the Genealogy of Morality" by Friedrich Nietzsche
    A classic work in philosophy and psychology. Read (for the second time) in conjunction with Brian Leiter's book.
  3. "What Art Is" by Arthur Danto
    The final work from the late philosopher of art. I don't see eye to eye with him on many of the topics discussed, but the book is still worth reading.

This leans pretty heavily vegan.
  1. 10.
    Apple Cider Donut Ice Cream from FoMu (Allston and Jamaica Plain)
    I love all of the great flavors offered at this wonderful dairy free ice cream shop, but this seasonal offering was the standout for me this past year.
  2. 9.
    Ginger Tofu from My Thai Vegan Cafe (Chinatown)
    This is my go-to dish at many Thai and Vietnamese restaurants, but I'm partial to My Thai's version.
  3. 8.
    Seoul Style Bowl from Whole Heart Provisions (Allston)
    The signature bowls from this new vegan restaurant offer a plethora of great flavor and texture combinations. The Seoul Style Bowl includes bulgogi style beets, carrot and radish kimchi, Korean black beans, edamame, sesame, crispy lentils, and creamy gochujang dressing.

Sure to liven up any Halloween party (well, probably not, unless you're a Bowie fan). Arranged chronologically, which is one of the best ways to arrange a Bowie mix.
  1. 1.
    Please Mr. Gravedigger
    A novelty song from Bowie's self-titled first album. Reminds me of the X-Files episode "Irresistible."
  2. 2.
    All the Madmen
    From THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD (which also includes the Lovecraftian "The Supermen").
  3. 3.
