I wasn't sure if I would actually have enough 2020 published books to populate a year-end Kevin's 7 list. But, guess what? I DID! I DID!
Year in Review
Here we are most of the way through October and I realized I was going to have to start planning and scheduling my Kevin’s 7 year-end lists.
Happy New Year!
I had this grand idea to watch a few more movies prior to posting this so that I had some more from which to choose. Did it happen? Heck no! I only watched half of a single movie.
Yeah, so as we know already, my schedule got all messed up due to a desire to watch another 2019 movie that never really materialized. Add to that I am about to announce that I’m actually adding a recap post.
A week or so ago, I took Nathan to our one and only local record store - Kiss the Sky in Batavia, IL. He's 7 and I thought it would be cool to let him experience the joy of physical media. He loved it. But that's a story for another day.
This year and this series of Kevin’s 7 posts is quickly wrapping up. And one of my toughest lists to compile is here. Music ‘19, which is comprised of both Singles ‘19 and Albums ‘19. Buckle up!
Another week, another list! I have to admit that this K7 was not easy to pare down. Last year, I did an upper and lower 7. Just 7 this year. Man, it’s tough. But here’s what I’ve got for you on the television front:
My second Kevin's 7 list of 2019 is nigh! And it be all about the funny picture books we all love so much. Much like last year, I had a lot of fun just reading graphic novels and collected editions of comics. In fact, I really didn't read any individual comic books at all. I just wait until a collection is available and then go to town on anywhere from 4 to 7 issues in one fell swoop. It really is the best way to go... until you have to wait another 4 to 7 months to continue the story. C'est la vie.
Here it be, the first of my year-in-review posts for 2019. Kevin’s 7 Podcasts!
I think I may just have my Kevin’s 7 schedule figured out for December.
You start the year thinking that it’s all just dragging so hard. That January will never end.
This has been a pretty incredible year for movies. So much good stuff has made it to the big screen and Katie and I have been able to watch a lot of it. A lot more than we normally would have. So I have plenty to choose from for Kevin’s 7: Movies list.
Music. My daily lifeblood. Since we started listening to a lot more music at work and I began contributing as the occasional Office DJ, it’s become even more important. None of us can do without it, honestly.
I’m changing things up a bit this year. As you may recall, my Kevin’s 7 lists are all Top 7 within their respective categories... save for TV. That list has always been seven random awards with a single awardee.
2018 has been a fun year on the comic front. I’ve read 38 graphic novels, so far, of which most were ones I’d never read before and were not on the list last year. Heck, five of my seven books below are new to the list! I’ve just been picking up random books and enjoying the heck out of them.
Let the madness begin!!!! Yes, it’s actually time to begin my Kevin’s 7 year-in-review lists. I know I say this pretty much every year, but how are we here already??
Yeah, I get it. The domestic box office slumped a bit this year. But guess what? I saw a lot of movies that I really enjoyed. So many, in fact, that I can’t just do a list o’ seven. I’m gonna do TWO lists o’ seven.
I would like to say that having a new job where we all like to listen to music has made tackling this list a lot easier. I have listened to so much more music in the last four months than I did the entire previous year and a half. So this list is fun again!
Are you all ready for the 2017 edition of Kevin's 7 Best of TV list??? No??? Okay, fine, I'm leaving now. NO TV FOR YOU!
I have to admit that a lot has happened with regard to my podcast listening habits this year.
‘Tis the season, y’all, for KEVIN’S 7!! Before I start, I should explain... wait, why should I bother to explain myself again when my disclaimer from last year says everything I need to say here.
I suppose I could've done my Kevin's 7: Movie list yesterday. I know I said we were seeing a movie that might be worth adding to the list sometime today.
Three days left and two Kevin's 7 lists remain! Ho boy. Time to hammer this home, folks. Let's start with TV!
This is usually one of my favorite lists to complete in any given year. But not this year.
Before I get into my Kevin's 7 ranking of comic books, I need to admit that I really didn't read that many comic books this calendar year. There were a few, sure. But much of my reading came about from a backlog of titles that I am only now getting around to reading.
I can't believe it's already time to revisit Kevin's 7. Where did the year go?
Now, for my final Kevin's 7 of 2015... MOVIES!!
Now for one of my favorite lists of the year... MUSIC!!
That's "tweaking" not "twerking." With an "a." One letter makes all the difference, doesn't it? You wouldn't want to see me do the latter anyway. Not pretty. Really.
Another Thursday and another Kevin's 7 best of list. This week? TV SHOWS!!! First off?
Wow! Is it really time already to start year-end lists? It is almost the middle of December, so I guess it is! Here you go... the first of my Kevin's 7 rebranded year-end recaps. This first one? All about comic books!
Any of you who have read my blog longer than four months knows that I have readily taken part in the pretty well overdone art of writing up best-of lists at the end of the calendar year. For at least a handful of years now, in fact.
A little late this list is, wouldn't you say? By "little late," like, "ridonkulously late."
Per a post from Tankboy calling out music reviewers for publishing their best-of lists too early, I decided to delay mine as close to the New Year as possible. No, I'm not going to wait until 2015, but I did push it off as much as I could allowing myself as solid a shot as possible to listen to 2014 music. Hey, December 28 ain't too bad for a YEBO Music list, right?
'Tis the season for YEBO 2014: TV Awards!!! Don't lie. You've been looking forward to this all year, haven't you? I knew it. Let's get started.
