2017: The Best of The Rest

As you’ve probably gathered, this site is primarily about my main passion: Music. With that said, I wanted to give a quick shout-out to my other interests – podcasts, pro-wrestling, comedy, Twitter and movies – with these top five lists. Big love to everyone making it happen this year, and I look forward to plenty more to come in 2018.
