So, now that we're two days into 2008 we can now wistfully look back at 2007, right?

Instead of doing any top 10 or annual recaps for the last two weeks of the year, we're preferring to look back fondly at the best of 2007 right now in an open thread. (Ok, hardly any of us were here in the marketing office over the last two weeks ...)

What were some of your favorites in 2007 in the worlds of theater, art, music, TV or movies?

I'll get the ball rolling ...

Music: Foo Fighters - Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace; The White Stripes - Icky Thump; Regina Spektor - Begin to Hope
TV: Battlestar Galactica, Dexter, Weeds, LOST
Books: Rabbit Hole, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Play I saw: Doubt
Play I was part of: Gorey Stories
New place to eat: Yummy House

So, lay some of your favorites for 2007 on me ...
