    1. What was your favorite live event (concert, sporting event, play, festival, convention, etc.) you attended in 2017?
    Seeing the New Orleans Saints beat the Falcons on Christmas Eve in the Dome to clinch a spot in the playoffs was damn magical.

    2. Favorite musical artist of 2017?
    System of A Down—I’m not sure why, but I reconnected with their stuff in a big way this year.

    3. What song did you hit “repeat” on the most in 2017?

    (“Feel It Still” by Portugal The Man is a close runner-up.)

    4. Favorite book and/or comic you read in 2017?
    TWD Issue #167 because it’s the last appearance of one of my favorite characters. As for novels, one of my favorite books, Jack London’s Call of the Wild, was added back to our curriculum and I really enjoyed teaching it again.

    5. Favorite TV show you binge watched in 2017?
    Legion S1 (Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is a very close second.)

    6. Favorite TV show you watched week to week in 2017?
    Game of Thrones S7

    7. Favorite animated series of 2017?
    Rick & Morty (Technically it’s my favorite show I binged because I did so with S1 & S2, and also my favorite show I watched week to week, which was S3.)

    8. Favorite animated film of 2017?
    The Lego Batman Movie

    9. Favorite documentary of 2017?
    This was a tough one. Batman & Bill on Hulu gets the top spot because I’m such a huge Batman fan, but Chasing Coral on Netflix was equally superb.

    10. Favorite comedy film of 2017?
    The Disaster Artist

    11. Favorite action and/or sci-fi film of 2017?
    Thor: Ragnarok for action and Blade Runner 2049 for sci-fi.

    12. Favorite drama and/or romance film of 2017?
    Three Billboards… for best drama (although I really struggled with not putting Logan here) and even though it was a 2016 film, I didn’t see La La Land until 2017, and it was probably the only romance film I saw all year.

    13. Favorite video game of 2017?
    I’m not a big gamer, so forgive me for being late to the party with Skyrim. I discovered it this summer with my nephew and love it.

    14. Favorite YouTube channel in 2017?
    Hot Ones with Sean Evans. Best interview show going. Even if I don’t know or particularly care about the people being interviewed, watching them deal with extremely hot chicken wings is endlessly entertaining.

    15. What’s your favorite/most used app on your smartphone in 2017?
    Facebook. Sad but true. Like most people, Mark’s got me firmly by the Zuckerbergs.

    16. Who is the one entertainer that died in 2017 you’d bring back? (There can be only one!)
    Adam West. He’s the first Batman I ever knew, and still one of the best.

    17. What was your 2017 like as depicted in emojis or a single .gif?

    Seventeen questions about your year in entertainment.

    1. What was your favorite live event (concert, sporting event, play, festival, convention, etc.) you attended in 2017?

    I was able to see Hello Dolly on Broadway. Bette Midler. That is all. I also worked for a professional softball team over the summer, so it's a tie since I guided that team to the title this season!

    2. Favorite musical artist of 2017?

    Though the album is not of 2017, I became obsessed with the Lumineers. I saw them five times in 2017.

    3. What song did you hit “repeat” on the most in 2017?

    Bang by Tori
    4. Favorite book and/or comic you read in 2017?

    I was finishing grad school, so there wasn't a whole lot of reading going on, but of what I did read, I really enjoyed Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

    5. Favorite TV show you binge watched in 2017?

    I revisited Nurse Jackie because my sister hadn't seen it. I've seen the whole series a few times, but it was still the best thing about TV binge watching for me. I also quite enjoyed Transparent.
    6. Favorite TV show you watched week to week in 2017?

    Embrassing, maybe, but I really dug Top Chef

    9. Favorite documentary of 2017?

    Burn the Ships. It's a documentary about the stuggle of the National Profastpitch League and its players. For those who are in learning about the ups and downs of women's advancement in sport, check it out. I believe it's on Hulu.


    15. What’s your favorite/most used app on your smartphone in 2017?
    WTForecast. Silly, maybe, but in encapsulated the fact that I nearly sweated to death in Houston over the summer

    16. Who is the one entertainer that died in 2017 you’d bring back? (There can be only one!)

    Probably Tom Petty
