Best of the Year Project: 2009

Every December for the past 5 years I've made a "Best of 2009" mix cd. I create a list of my top 15 albums of the year, my top tracks of the year, and lastly a list of my top 15 movies of the year. It's something I very much enjoy doing. The act of editing is something more of us should practice in ALL aspects of our lives and this exercise has proven to be the perfect way to end the years so far.
I usually make an edition of somewhere between 10 and 15 and hand them out to friends and family. Each year I create a new cd-holder construction and book style.

If you are interested to know what any of my past years' lists have been (2004-2009), just ask! I'd be happy to share.
