Abhay: 2015– Another Year that I Mindlessly Consumed Entertainment (almost)
Posted by: Abhay Khosla on December 30, 2015
Hello. Sorry it’s been a long time since I’ve had opportunity to visit with you. How was your year? Good, I hope. Mine was busier than expected, maybe the busiest and most stressful I’ve had professionally since I started the whole occupation-thing in 2002. So, plans I had about what I wanted to write here were delayed. So were my plans to impress Jodie Foster, though, so you know, maybe some things are for the best. You were never out of my thoughts completely though, and I’m referring here both to you and also, to Jodie Foster.
And so if you’ll indulge me, I did want to do another collection of year-end lists, as I have in previous years. I just like the doing of it, and I like having like a “personal tradition” to keep up, however silly. But this wasn’t a year where I felt like as engaged as other years, with comics especially, but television and movies, as well. I watched more Youtube cooking videos this year than prestige television– it sort of has been a “rebuilding year”, in ways I won’t bore you with here, so as a result, this is going to be a pretty uninformed series of lists, maybe embarrassingly so where comics especially are concerned. Plus, because of timing issues, I’m writing it all in one night, and am very sleepy during the part of the process where I usually fix errors or delete things I shouldn’t say murder all the babies in their cribs. But maybe it’ll go well. Or maybe it’ll go as well as the rest of our lives have this year OH NOOOOOOOOOO…
