Year in Review

Kevin's 7: Comics '19...

My second Kevin's 7 list of 2019 is nigh! And it be all about the funny picture books we all love so much. Much like last year, I had a lot of fun just reading graphic novels and collected editions of comics. In fact, I really didn't read any individual comic books at all. I just wait until a collection is available and then go to town on anywhere from 4 to 7 issues in one fell swoop. It really is the best way to go... until you have to wait another 4 to 7 months to continue the story. C'est la vie.

YEBO 2014: Music...

Per a post from Tankboy calling out music reviewers for publishing their best-of lists too early, I decided to delay mine as close to the New Year as possible. No, I'm not going to wait until 2015, but I did push it off as much as I could allowing myself as solid a shot as possible to listen to 2014 music. Hey, December 28 ain't too bad for a YEBO Music list, right?

YEBO: Music...

Welcome to my second Year-End Best-Of (YEBO) list of 2014 all about music! In a few moments, I will detail for you my favorite albums of the year. As always, you must realize that, since I'm not a professional music critic, I'm not just given free albums to listen to. I actually have to seek out albums myself either via purchase, from the library, or loaners from friends. So I really don't have too many albums on which to base this list. Only about 52 full albums and two EPs. It was a pretty sparse year. But it was more than enough for me to pick a ten best.

So here you go, in reverse order (10 to 1), my top ten albums of 2014...

YEBO: Comic Books...

Welcome to the first of my Year-End Best-Of (YEBO). Is it cliche to write posts like this? Heck yeah! It's a gimme post... that requires a year's worth of work. Fuhgeddabout da hatuz. I enjoy YEBO posts.

This first installment will cover comic books that I've read. I'm going to post a list of my top five and then a few honorable mentions at the end of it. You'll understand why they're "honorable," I hope.

The sun always shines on TV...

I'm just clipping along on these Year-End Best-Of (YEBO) lists, aren't I? If this were any other year, I'd be waiting until the tail end of the year (even more tail end than today, December 23, represents) to write these. Now I'm actually done with all but two of my YEBO lists.

I'm such an overachiever! Must. Stop.
