Nostalgia.  I write about it in some form or another a lot here on Joup, as do our other contributors.  It’s this ever-present thing, a constant hum in our pop culture that surfaces in the music we listen to, the TV and movies we watch, and the books we read.  It’s in our advertising, our fashion, our cuisine, forever coloring our senses and perceptions in that rose-tinted fuzz of fond memories.  For better or worse, nostalgia is everywhere.

joup2018So.  2018, right?  I just don’t know any more you guys.  I mean yeah, we got a ton of great music released this year, some great books, great comics, great television, and it was an absurdly good year for film too.  But as we hurdle closer and closer to a worldwide authoritarian state and the impending hellscape that awaits us from climate change inaction, it all just feels like one big distraction. 

Don’t get me wrong, some distraction is good now and then.  It keeps us sane.  Speaking of which, here’s a bunch of year-end lists I made over the last couple weeks (here, here, here, here, here, and here).  And I guess I’m going to keep on distracting, at least for the amount of time it takes you to read this article, another year-end list.

“Take a Chance on Me” by ABBA

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my almost four decades on this rock, it’s that someone who claims not to like ABBA is not to be trusted.
