I don’t want to get into a whole thing on year-end list culture. About how it’s either a group-think circle jerk or a navel-gazing troll job. About how it’s become more about personal taste than critical analysis. About how there’s too much to listen to and too many people just looking to validate their own […]

Boo! It’s Halloween, which means you’ve probably already gobbled down a handful of sweets on this day of spooky indulgence.
