Presented in no particular order, a look at some of the media bites that got stuck in my teeth this year. Take a look, fling some of the ones you didn't like out of the way, or collect all of the ones you did.

Cheers to another year of being able to watch, listen, and play.

Album Awards

A little something something for the works that dislodged time and repainted it with their own hues.

A ragtag yet tidy handful of bangers, gushers, and sing-a-longs that accompanied the year as sonic stand-outs.
