If you spot this little guy crawling on you, just stay calm and shake it off, shake it off!
During a recorded conversation with activists, an officer began backing the conversation with the sounds of Taylor Swift.
Swift’s latest, Folklore, really is about being a sad rich person stuck at home.
I asked myself what makes entertainment media go viral, in particular music videos, these videos that call up some feeling of want or remembrance so that millions of people (or perhaps billions) reach for them again and again.
Even on Swift’s most dramatic songs there’s an underlying calm to Lover, a sense of gratitude and relief at having made it this far.
Three of these four albums count among 2017’s best, and they all share the same producer.

Since January I’ve been squeezing an extra review into each catalogue, and, nearing the end of February, it finally cost me a deadline. I’m pretty satisfied with the way things turned out, though. As of this post since March last year, I’ve reviewed 100 2012 albums, not bad. High points here are a Canadian teenpop singer and an angry, stealthy metal band. The low point is what I believe to be the worst album of the year – beat Deadmau5 by a hair. If you think the Dirty Projectors sound contrived, wait till you hear this 70-year-old cult artifact.
