yearender: 2006 in sights and sounds

2006 in movies
of course, we all know that the movies that changed my life this year were brokeback mountain (feb), gia (march) and imagine me & you (august). but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any other movies worth mentioning.

i also loved: rent (the OST is loooove), the devil wears prada (meryl streep is loooove) and happy feet (penguins are looooooooooooooove!)

other movies i bothered with: mission impossible 3, pirates of the carribean 2 and superman.

2006 in screen-related addictions
my dvd life was mostly lorded over by episodes of: the l word (april) and grey’s anatomy (october)

on tv, i remember watching: rockstar:supernova and philippine idol. captain barbell!

(and even more randomicity. is that even a word?)

2006 in music
i’m mostly thankful for, in one way or another: the umbrellas, tina dico, k’s choice, anberlin, kinnie starr, jane siberry, kathleen edwards, ben jelen, the divinyls, bonnie tyler, roxette, dilana and storm large, tom mcrae, the fray, snow patrol, sia, the pussycat dolls (alang angal, sabi ko in one way or another).

rent OST, the l word OST (telepopmusik! esthero!), grey’s anatomy OST.

local: mau marcelo, sitti, timmy cruz, alyssa alano

2006 in books
