2017…Meh: Looking Ahead to 2018

2018So, 2017 huh?  Look, I’ll be honest with you, I’ve really been struggling to come up with some kind of year-end list of pop culture phenomena and detritus that were special to me or that made the year great or whatever, and I just don’t think I can do it.  I’ll always have “Twin Peaks,” and this new cinematic Stephen King Renaissance has been pretty cool to watch take off, as well as all the other films I enjoyed (which you can read about here) this year.  And sure, I’ve got my albums and songs that I dug on a whole bunch just as I do every year (which you can also read about here, here, and here respectively), but I just can’t summon the power or the energy to write a recap that won’t sound like I’m repeating myself…or that will make up for the general, overwhelming hopelessness and despair that 2017 has been wrought with.

The Joup Friday Album: The Soft Moon – Deeper

Deeper - the Soft MoonFirst, there is NO WAY in Hell I can top Chester’s selection from last week. If someone can win the Friday Album, well, I think our friend from across the pond just did. However, this is a perpetual method of entertainment of no small importance to the mortals that employee me at Joup, so let me do my part in things. Chester tagged Sonny but the lines of communication became muddled and I’ve been tasked with stepping in for the week. So let me step right on in…
