"It's been a crazy year," says the ever-popular arts and entertainment reporter for the Chronicle-Herald. He rattles off a list of festivals and shows he enjoyed---In The Dead of Winter, Stanfest ("to see Sarah Harmer come out of hibernation")---movies---Inglourious Basterds, District 9 ("It was a good year for genre movies")---and indie releases---York Redoubt, The Got To Get Got and Gypsophilia ("I'm looking forward to the Joel Plaskett-Steve Poltz collaboration"). The biggest disappointment: "Not making it to AC/DC. I know people who went and weren't even fans and they were blown away."
