Blogged out my favorite albums and TV shows of 2020. hope HBO commits to more seasons of HOW TO. I mean, it probably costs the network 2% of what they pay to make SUCCESSION or EUPHORIA. @DeathofLit I sure didn’t! Wanna see it now.My review of the first new album in 26 years from Cabaret Voltaire is up over at @pitchfork.

Something like that. But I would give away a prize.Thinking of hosting an online music trivia event to raise some money for charity. Any interest? @selectortbm Whooooaaaaaaaaaaa @nominalsum Damn.
