I'm going to throw everyone's song picks into a playlist on Spotify. I like that song you posted "New Rush" so I will probably give that album a try.

Music
Favorite Albums of 2015

1. Have You In My Wilderness - Julia Holter. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
2. I Love You, Honeybear - Father John Misty
3. Vietcong - Vietcong
4. In Colour - Jamie XX
5: Currents - Tame Impala... I guess

Favorite Songs of 2015 (choosing 1 song per album)
1. Let It Happen - Tame Impala. I still listen to this regularly. Top 5 of all time, even
2. Silhouette - Julia Holter
3. Loud Places - Jamie XX
4. Bunker Buster - Vietcong
5. The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apt. - Father John Misty

Favorite New Artist: Vietcong
Favorite Artist or Album you discovered for the first time this year: Public Strain - Women
Worst Album of 2015:
Worst Song of 2015: The daytime town theme from Xenoblade Chronicles X. Accurately described by my friend as "royalty free rock." Even that terrible John Legend song has more flavour
Anything else you'd like to say about music from 2015?  
Wasn't that great of a year for me to be honest. Critics are favoring rap more, which makes it harder for me to find stuff I like, and a lot of albums I was looking forward to really disappointed me. I spent most of the year listening to Krautrock. I only REALLY fell in love with Julia Holter's album

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2015

1. Mad Max: Fury Road. Generally I favour thrillers and such over action movies, but this was just so wild.
2. Victoria
3. Goodnight Mommy
4. Bridge of Spies
5. Inside Out

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: House
Worst Movie of 2015: Hot Pursuit. Based on this movie I'm assuming Sofia Vergara has no comedic talent whatsoever.
Anything else you'd like to mention about movies from 2015: Still have to check out Ex Machina in particular. Laia Costa for best actress (Victoria.) Ronald Zehrfeld for best actor (Phoenix.)
TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2015

1. Fargo. This show is already up there with some of Breaking Bad's best years in my opinion. People say TV is better than movies right now, but this is the only show that makes me feel that way.
2. Les Revenants
3. Game of Thrones

Still have to get through a few, mainly Mr. Robot.

Favorite TV Episodes of 2015
Rhinoceros (Fargo)
Honorable mentions: Hardhome (Game of Thrones,) El Jefe (Ash vs Evil Dead)

Favorite New Show: Mr. Robot
Favorite TV Show or Season you watched for the first time from before this year:
Worst Show of 2015: 2 Defective
Anything else you'd like to mention about TV from 2015: Lots of seemingly great shows but I didn't quite catch all that I wanted. Kirsten Dunst for best actress (Fargo,) Rami Malek for best actor (Mr. Robot)

I didn't put in Inside Out into my list but maybe I should, that was a great film.

[b]Anything else you'd like to say about music from 2015?

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2015

1. KUNG FURY!
2. Mad Max Fury Road
3. Inside Out
4. Ant-Man
5. Avengers: Age of Ultron

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: The Terminator
Worst Movie of 2015: Hot Tub Time Machine 2. Seriously, fuck that movie.
Anything else you'd like to mention about movies from 2015: DBZ: Resurrection F and Star Wars would be on the list over Avengers if the former threw Vegeta a bone at the end and the latter didn't feel too much like a set up movie.

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2015

1. Rick and Morty
2. iZombie
3. Bob's Burgers
4. Last Week Tonight
5. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Worst Show of 2015: Are the Kardashians still on television?
Anything else you'd like to mention about TV from 2015: Disney needs to give us a reasonably priced way to watch Gravity Falls season 2. The two episodes I saw from this year almost enough to putting it in top 5

Okay go for it.

Kung Fury...ah yeah, that came out this year too. Not top 5 material but still pretty great.

I didn't include it mainly because it's only 30 minutes. I think a full length movie was confirmed though, which could be great

I just thought of how it made me laugh harder than anything else in a really long time. But if you want to pretend Mad Max Fury Road is my number one and put DBZ Resurrection F as number five, I'm okay with that

Nah, Kung Fury was a lot of fun. I think I just didn't think of it because of it's length and because 2015 was just a great year for films! Lots of great competition!

I remembered Pickle and Peanut was a thing. Change my vote of worst show to that.

Forgot to do my list. Going to kind of tear up the outline and just mention some stuff.

Music
Favorite Albums of 2015

1. Chvrches - Every Open Eye: I definitely like the first one better, but I still really like this one.
2. Florence + the Machine - How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful
3. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie and Lowell
These were the three I kept coming back to. I didn't do a real good job of cataloging what I listened to though. I may be forgetting some 2015 releases.

Movies
Favorite Movie of 2015
: Only watched a handful probably, but I loved Mad Max: Fury Road.

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2015

1. Mr. Robot
2. iZombie
3. Black Sails
4. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
5. The 100

Favorite TV Episodes of 2015
Comedy would be Rick and Morty's "Total Rickall"
Drama maybe the white rose episode in Mr. Robot or GoT's "Hardhome"

Favorite TV Show or Season you watched for the first time from before this year: Actual new 2015 shows aside, I'd say my best discovery of 2015 was Banshee. It has the best fights I have ever seen on TV.

Music
Favorite Albums of 2015
1. Daniel Johns - Talk: He's the singer/guitarist/chief song writer from Silverchair. Like Silverchair though, it's completely different from anything else he's done.
2. Kurt Cobain - Montage of Heck: It's really only for die hard Nirvana fans like myself, but getting new music from my favorite artist is always nice, even if it is super shitty quality.
3. The Dead Weather - Dodge and Burn
4. Lana Del Rey - Honeymoon: Not my favorite by her, but there are still some great songs here.
5. Princess Chelsea - The Great Cybernetic Depression: I'm really only throwing this in here to have a 5th, but it is a good album.

Favorite Songs of 2015
1. Daniel Johns - Preach: Every time he comes out with an album, there's always one really powerful and emotional to him track, and this is it. Musically it is completely different, but it's still uniquely him.
2. Kurt Cobain - Sappy: I've heard this song before, but with technology they really cleaned up the quality and made it easier to listen to. It's a home demo of my favorite Nirvana song.
3. The Dead Weather - Three Dollar Hat: Jack White goes a little crazy on this song, as the premise of the song is him wanting to a kill a man for taking his three dollar hat.
4. Lana Del Rey - Art Deco: Lots of good songs on the album, but this is my favorite.
5. Daniel Johns - all of the other songs that I want to mention from this great album: We Are Golden, By Your Side, Warm Hands, Going On 16, Good Luck.

Favorite New Artist: Daniel Johns, even though he's technically not new, but he's new as a solo artist
Favorite Artist or Album you discovered for the first time this year: Shimmering Stars
Worst Album of 2015: Loads
Worst Song of 2015: Loads x infinity
Anything else you'd like to say about music from 2015? Not necessarily new, but I really got into And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead and Sonic Youth.

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: Django Unchained
Anything else you'd like to mention about movies from 2015: Late 2015 and early 2016 movies look phenomenal!

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2015
1. Girls
2. Silicon Valley
3. Game of thrones

I gave In Colour another shot since it was on your list ajapam. It has definitely grown on me, but I still generally like the songs with the other xx band members the best. So maybe I just prefer the band as a group to this.

I also gave Father John Misty a shot and I guess it just isn't for me. I tried.

Not even True Affection? That seems like something you'd like. The rest of the songs, I dunno.

Yeah that one (and another I forget the name) were pretty good, but felt kind of like outliers from the sound of the rest of the album. I didn't listen to it too much though, so maybe not.

Music
Favorite Albums of 2015
1. To Pimp A Butterfly - Kendrick Lamar
2. The Hateful Eight soundtrack - Ennio Morricone (and others)
3. Anareta - Horrendous
4. Purple - Baroness
5. Compton - Dr. Dre

Favorite Artist or Album you discovered for the first time this year: Solomon Burke. The usage of "Cry To Me" in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. opened me up to his work.
Worst Album of 2015: Last Of Our Kind - The Darkness (not so much worst but very disappointing)
Anything else you'd like to say about music from 2015? That I'm very far behind on new stuff. I just listened to older music more often this past year.

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2015
1. Inherent Vice - for the following reasons: 1) while it screened in limited release in December '14, it wasn't available to the public until early Janurary '15; 2) I'm not a professional critic nor do I live in an area where early screenings or film festivals occur so I have to wait until everyone can see it; 3) 'cause it's just fucking wonderful and possibly my favorite Paul Thomas Anderson film.
2. Mad Max: Fury Road - I'm just thankful that this got made and released and that we finally got to see it. Didn't think it was possible to top a cinematic classic like The Road Warrior but George Miller and Co. did it.
3. Kingsman: The Secret Service - Out of the five spectacular spy/espionage films not Spectre (more on that below), this was the cream of the crop. Works as both spy adventure and satire.
4. I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story
5. Inside Out

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year: Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Canon Films.
Worst Movie of 2015: Terminator Genysis
Anything else you'd like to mention about movies from 2015: Kinda sad that the latest Bond film, Spectre, came out and was beaten by five superior takes on the genre (Kingsman, Spy, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Bridge of Spies, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation). Didn't see that coming. Also, there are several films (like Creed) that I still haven't seen and have no good excuse.

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2015
1. Hannibal - the third and final season was unforgettable and ballsy: the first half was a dreamlike/nightmarish take on the first half of the Hannibal novel; the second was a stylish (and at times truly gruesome) take on the Red Dragon/Manhunter plot. I was sad to see it cancelled and not picked up but what a wild ride that Bryan Fuller and his team took me on.
2. The Americans - Could things get any worse after season 2? Yep and memorably/dramatically so.
3. Agent Carter
4. Daredevil
5. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Favorite TV Show or Season you watched for the first time from before this year: Fringe
Worst Show of 2015: True Detective Season 2. What the fucking fuck?
Anything else you'd like to mention about TV from 2015: Also way behind.

Did not listen to any new music this year. Need to get back into checking out new stuff.

Movies
Favorite Movies of 2015
1. The Hateful Eight
2. Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens
3. The Martian
4. Mad Max Fury Road
5. Furious 7 (The Rock breaks out of a cast by flexing. Give the man an Oscar)

Favorite Movie from a previous year you watched for the first time this year:Rocky - never seen the movie in its entirety before. It's pretty, pretty good!

TV
Favorite TV Shows of 2015
1. Master of None
2. Mr. Robot
3. Game of Thrones
4. Justified
5. The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Favorite TV Episodes of 2015
1. Nashville - Master of None. I don't know why but that episode has really stuck with me.

Favorite New Show: Master of None.

Anything else you'd like to mention about TV from 2015:A lot of my favorites from year that I had been growing tired of saw a revival this year... Game of Thrones, Justified (an incredibly strong final season), and especially The Walking Dead... even though they are only halfway through the season. I also really enjoyed the two AMC spinoffs, Fear the Walking Dead and Better Call Saul. Really looking forward to seeing what's next for those two shows. The unfortunate thing is there is just way too much TV to keep up with so I have to be selective in what I watch.
