2016 was a bad year. We know it. It's been written everywhere. The world is in complete disarray. Even if you voted for Trump, you have to agree with that. Celebrity deaths were too much to handle. The Oscars were "so white." Mariah pulled a Milli Vanilli at the final hour. I could go on and on, but I won't. The year wasn't all bad. Here are my personal favorite things about the year in film, television, and music in no particular order. Share your own below. Here's hoping 2017 is better. Believe in hope. 1. The Chicago Cubs winning The World Series and Bill Murray and John Cusack's reactions to it 2. Lion - the acting, writing, and direction 3. Denzel Washington and Viola Davis in Fences 4. David Bowie's grand exit - Lazarus 5. Bon Iver's brilliant 22, A Million 6. Everything about Nocturnal Animals 7. Letters to Cleo's comeback 8. Spider-man's awesome cameo in Civil War 9.

Leonard Cohen for me really stands out. He not only influenced me as an artist, but I also have been covering "Hallelujah" for quite some time. From Bowie to Cohen, it is definitely a year to remember. Moving onto better things, try to put the Cubs victory into words... I have been a Cubs fan for as long as I can remember. Going to the games as a kid with my dad and uncle are memories I won't soon forget. A few years back, I was even able to throw out the first pitch at a Cubs game which is a dream come true for any Cubs fan. I was at home watching in Los Angeles while my family was back in Chicago, all of us rooting them on. As the last out was thrown, my house erupted. It was a long time coming. It means so much to me as a fan, and I know it means everything to the city of Chicago. What do your tattoos say about you? All of my tattoos have personal meaning to me.

The Dodgers must win now and in the future. Not one or the other. Both. The Cubs are set up to win for years to come, and if memory serves, Chicago just won the whole ball of wax.

Oh, just the 7th largest gathering of humans in history happened last week. Five million of the most patient humans in the world -- Cubs fans -- descended on Chicago's lakefront last week to celebrate a victory that was against all odds. But win they did, ending the longest World Series drought in baseball history -- 108 years -- and the lifting of the Billy Goat Curse. Friday's event was the 7th largest get-together in human history, about a million shy of the 2015 papal visit to the Philippines. The rest of us can keep it simple and get a glimpse of the Cubs on The Tonight Show Monday. The event in Grant Park turned out to be a pretty tame party for Chicago, when you consider the things fans have done over the years to try to lift the curse. [caption id="attachment_492846" align="alignnone" width="600"] Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis' pet goat Murphy was lacking in hygiene and was thusly ejected from Wrigley Field in 1945.

When the Chicago Cubs picked hometown agency Schafer Condon Carter to handle their marketing in 2012, the World Series was nothing but a fever dream as the team hit a low point during pro sports longest and most infamous drought. We became the Cubs agency ... just as they came off a 101 loss season, says SCC president and managing partner David Selby, and there was a lot of discussion about the right attitude to strike. The agency and client went with commitment ... as in the dedication shown by fans who stay loyal to a team that never quite gets the win. The Cubs aimed for honesty: One billboard that reflected on how transparent they were being read, Love Deserves a Ring, Selby told Adweek. Things began to look up in 2015, when the Cubs made the playoffs and Fly the W became synonymous with their brand.
