    1) moved back to the US
    2) made internet friends that mailed me cheese and chocolate from other countries
    3) this one specific chocolate cake at some Italian place in Philly
    4) dated someone, got over it, broke it off without being too childish about it
    5) Lee Pace’s face has been in a lot of movies and shows lately

    Ep 167 on iTunes says Part 1 but the recording is of Part 2.

    I look forward to every episode.

    My best of 2014
    1. Jay Leno winning Mark Twain Prize for humor. I was never big Tonight Show fan cause I knew when you go into that slot you have to dumb down everything. But in the eighties, Leno showed how funny he could be especially on Late Night. I rank him with the greats like Rodney, Prior, Carlin, Rivers, and Rickles.
    2.Bruno Mars. Does not get his due but you can have all the pop tarts with guest rappers on their recordings, “Uptown Funk” is the catchiest, most dynamic song of the year. When I saw him on SNL, I just about fell off the couch. What a performance. He just never gets his due.
    3. The movie Life Itself. Not easy to look at but shows Roger Ebert warts and all. I am somewhat prejudiced because I was born and raised in Chicago. Even before and during his TV shows, I was always reading his reviews for the weekend in the Chicago Sun-Times. Found his point of view was more like mine and became big fan of movie going. Learned to empathize more with many previously unknown topics.
    4. Like your podcast but this year I discovered Gilbert Gottfried’s podcast. He is dirty, annoying, and laugh out loud funny. It is hard to find anyone that can make you laugh out loud and not stop.
    5. Fargo-True Detective-Whiplash-Boyhood-Snowpiercer. All great.

    Ah, that sounds so very Bozeman, Michael Keaton at Gallatin Field, and a geodesic dome purchased from old members of CUT.

    If only I had a well-paying job there I’d move back in a second!
