And lest I forget, my abbreviated 2005 favorites:

Album: Takk, by Sigur Ros, followed very, very closely by Plans for Death Cab for Cutie Asian Person: Helen Asian Person that I am Not Coerced into Listing: Helen, still Beach: Waikiki in Honolulu Movie: Batman Begins (but you have to keep in mind that I, essentially, saw no movies after July 2005) Star Wars Movie: Empire Strikes Back (still) Star Wars Prequel Movie: Revenge of the Sith, duh
