totally worst year of movies for me. i barely kept track of the few movies i got to see, and working at the new house subjected me to a million movies id never watch ever, some horrible, some ok. i can testify that tyler perry is not that bad lol

easily beyond any kind of contest my favorite movie was this is the end. i dont know how many times i watched it and it was an easy go to feel better movie.

some favorites – guardians of the galaxy (of course), winter soldier.

unfavorites – the annie remake. the girl was cute, jamie foxx is always good, but a horrible rest of cast and terrible redux of old songs. just garbage.

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?

Coming home

when I see the runway lights

In the misty dawn the night

is fading fast

Coming home

far away

as their vapor trails align

Where I’ve been tonight, you know I will not stay

Iron maiden – ‘coming home’
