The event normally appears to run like clockwork for most of the 14,000 attendees, but it was a bit frayed at the edges this year.
A bit like my favourite films list, I’ve picked out a Top 10 Songs of the year, and 10 which nearly made it.
After several years of trying, I managed to watch 52 new release films at the cinema this year. Here are my 10 favourites.
I made up a quick quiz for our Christmas party last night, and people asked if they could have copies to recycle at their own gatherings, so here it is.
So, I didn’t manage to see 52 new cinema-release movies this year, despite the best of intentions. Here’s the best of the 46 which I did see.
One of the joys of streaming audio is that you can listen to new music all year long and just file away anything you particularly like into a “best of the year”playlist.
When I first heard this, I couldn’t quite believe what I was hearing. And a few years on, whenever my Mum rings me and the photo of my Mum …and Dad pops up, I think of this amazing poem.

We’re just back from a fabulous 14-day cruise around the Baltic on Celebrity Eclipse, and for the benefit of future cruise passengers planning their trip, I thought I’d do a quick port guide.

I thought I’d post this year’s here so that if any of you wanted to steal it and use it yourselves, you could. Happy Christmas!
This year, thanks to Spotify – and Spotify apps like the one from Any Decent Music? – I was able to listen to half a dozen highly-rated new albums a week, most from acts I’d never heard of.
By the looks of things, I would appear to have seen about 25 films this year, which I guess is about average. Picking 10 from that isn’t going to be too hard, is it?
