What a year for music. Don’t believe me? Then just look at the diversity of all the 2018 year-end Best Of’s. Taking a look at my list makes my heart swell & reminds me of why I still do what I do. The music, man - the music! Like Chelsey Cope at her very best or Skating Polly carving their names on my heart or Broncho when they toured with Billy Idol (I’m still jealous).
When it comes to maligning the news media, Morrissey has few peers. As he sings in "Spent The Day In Bed," a song from his most recent album Low In High School: "I recommend that you stop / watching the news / because the news contrives to frighten you / to make you feel small and alone / to make you feel that your mind isn't your own."
