One of the best parts about a new year is the anticipation for all the new music and books and comics and TV and movies that will be coming out. 2009 is no exception.
There are 5 albums coming out in the near future that I am looking forward to...
A.C. Newman/Get Guilty (Jan. 20)
Andrew Bird/Noble Beast (Jan. 20)
Bruce Springsteen/Workin' On A Dream (Jan. 27)
M. Ward/Hold Time (Feb. 17)
Neko Case/Middle Cyclones (Mar. 3)
You can go here to watch the new video for the amazing title track from M. Ward's album.
The next couple months also bring the following books...
Chris Roberson/End of the Century
T.C. Boyle/The Women
Colson Whitehead/Sag Harbor
The new Entertainment Weekly is all about the big 2009 movies. Can we say...
X-Men Origins: Wolverine?
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince?
Where the Wild Things Are?
I'm not sure about all the comics coming down the pike (did Wizard even do a 2009 preview issue?) but I know some I'm anticipating...
The last three issues of Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds
The (hopefully) continuing adventures of the original Legion
Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver on Flash: Rebirth
Scott Pilgrim Vol. 5!
A collection of the second season of Casanova? (please?)
And then there's TV, where the following shows all return soon...
Scrubs (it was back this week with 2 very good episodes)
Flight of the Conchords
Plus, the debut of Dollhouse.
You know what's even better? All the stuff I don't even know about and that will be new to me and blow me away. Bring it, 2009.
