Best of everything else indie 2013

See also

A memorable line (and a tidy way to explain this article) comes from the Indie Comedy classic "High Fidelity" that has it's lead character (John Cusack) say something to the effect, and I quote- "...I agree that what really matters is what you like, not what you are like... Books, Records, Films-- these things matter, call me shallow but it's the f***in' truth." Well this "Best of'" list for everything else that has to do with the Indie Movie scene (plus books and music) tries to sum up that quote by presenting what I liked the most in 2013.
