Hello there and Happy Thanksgiving!  This is the time of year when we gather together, we look over the past few months, and we think about what we are thankful for.  A lot of people online have also suggested that Thanksgiving is the perfect time to argue with relatives who hold different political views from you.

And sure — if you want to ruin Thanksgiving for everyone, go ahead and be that person.  But for me, I’m just going to list 12 things that make me happy to be alive in 2014!

Dance1) Dancing Groot!  Actually, I’m thankful for all of the Guardians of the Galaxy but I’m especially happy that Groot is still around and he’s still dancing!

King of the Hill2) I’m thankful that Adult Swim is showing old Thanksgiving episodes of King of the Hill so that I’ll have an excuse not to watch any football games.

Mockingjay

3) I’m thankful for all of The Hunger Games films and I’m thankful for the strength and empowerment that Jennifer Lawrence brings to the role of Katniss Everdeen.

Chris Pratt

Tinseltown

8) I’m thankful William J. Mann’s excellent book Tinseltown, a wonderful look back at the Hollywood of the 1920s and the unsolved murder of director William Desmond Taylor.

True Detective

9) I’m thankful for the haunting perfection of True Detective.

Veep

10) I’m thankful for the hilarious satire of Veep.  Meyer in 2016!
