Here’s my personal Top Ten list for 2011

1. University of Victoria’s Writing Department.
2. Prince live at Montreal’s Metropolis and then in Victoria at the Save-On Foods
2. tied with the rap duo Main Attrakionz
3. Co La’s song “Egyptian Peaches
4. Soulja Boy’s mixtape “The Last Crown
5. Roberto Bolano’s book of essays “Between Parentheses
6. Kevin Chong’s novel “Beauty Plus Pity

7.Anders Nilsen’s graphic novel “Big Questions

8. Eli Boronowsky’s show at Blanket Gallery

9. (I’m looking forward to reading Peter Nádas’s “Parallel Stories“) Antonio Lobo Antunes’s reprinted novel “The Land At The End of the World

10. Tree of Life. I didn’t see enough movies this year to know what’s good and what isn’t. I saw Drive. Drive was decent. But how could any movie turn out better than Tree of Life?
