How I keep sports interesting.
  1. Tyson Wilson / Dungeon Dragon (Tyson Chandler)
    Because there was a Wilson Chandler on the Knicks. Roared when he made tough plays at the basket. I'm still mad he was traded.
  2. Bazinga (Kristaps Porzingis)
  3. Duda Day (Lucas Duda)
    To the tune of Camptown Races: "Duda Duda... all the Duda Day"

(so far) [updated]
  1. The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs (March 2015)
    Absolutely the best of the year for me, this book destroyed me. It's a truly tragic story. Going in, I knew it was going to end badly, but I still felt punched in the gut and heartbroken.
  2. A God In Ruins by Kate Atkinson (August-Sept 2015)
    A sequel of sorts to Life After Life (which I preferred) that focuses on Ursula's brother Teddy. Atkinson is a master at time-shifting and jumping into different characters, which keeps things interesting.
  3. Factory Man by Beth Macy (Jan 2015)
    Tough tale of a family business and an industry town trying to survive globalization. Some parts dragged a bit (like the "Moby Dick" of furniture manufacturing) but compelling overall.

Saw some great shows this year - in chron order
  1. Jack White at MSG
    With special guest Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest! Mind blowing.
  2. Jazzfest and all over New Orleans
    Mardi Gras Indians, La Santa Cecilia, Tedeschi Trucks Band. Stumbling onto Rebirth Brass Band in the street. Live shows in record stores, parks and museums - too many to count!
  3. Foo Fighters at Citi Field
    Dave Grohl rocked out with a broken leg, sitting on a guitar throne. My ears rang for a couple days but worth it.
