Discussions about the election: surprisingly, 0.
That zero could have easily become a one if I had spoken up at one point. But I didn’t want to go against my own rule for this holiday season. So I held my tongue and said nothing.
I figured out this Thanksgiving why Christmas is the superior holiday: Christmas is exactly like Thanksgiving, only with the addition of music and gifts. And who doesn’t like music and gifts?
Speaking of: I was going to put together a new Christmas playlist this year but a lot of the songs I already put on last year’s list, so why don’t I just link to that and use it for this year as well? Here you go. (I still haven’t done what needs to be done to embed music on the site but I’m working on it for 2017.)
Also: new column up.
