While I like lists, I’m not that interested in best-of lists. Making them, at least. I never feel I’m capable of making one both comprehensive and correct enough to earn the title; not only it is virtually impossible to absorb every single item in a category in order to rank it, such rankings can hardly be objective enough to reflect a platonically pure “best.” Best then to just avoid it all and make a list of deeply subjective, gloriously biased favorites. In that spirit, here are a bunch of things I liked in 2019.
