After a two week breather with Christmas and New Years, I’m back with my midweek links. Let’s check out what new articles or links I’ve decided to curate for you at the start of 2018.
- Various websites have put together lists of their favorite anime of 2017. Mine will be coming out tomorrow. Here’s a few highlights from around the web:
- Relatedely, Marina of Anime B&B posted up her Fall 2017 anime thoughts and, as she also watched some of my favorites, I decided to include part of her Fall 2017 anime review here too. Check out the rest at Anime B&B.
- EpicLLOYD and Nice Peter from Epic Rap Battles of History provide an update on themselves and ERB at the end of 2017. Too long didn’t watch the video? ERB is on hold at the moment and they’re looking for thoughts from the viewers.
- G-Nitro has been counting down (his) top 100 K-Pop hits from 2017 (this link is the start of it). It’s worth checking out – he has video links embedded so you can check out all the songs!
- Vice News has a short video about some of the last remaining Blockbuster Video locations remaining – 6 of them are in Alaska.
- Gallup asked Americans about their favorite sport to watch. The winner? Football. They’ve been asking this for years and football has been continuously on top for decades. It makes you wonder – why isn’t football considered America’s pastime at this point instead of baseball, which comes in 3rd place in the poll?
Are you on Twitter? Well, I get it if you’re not. If you are, though, I recommend following these accounts:
- wankotkt – This is a Japanese account that makes visual stories using figures in a few panels. It’s brilliantly done.
- Kerry Wilson – Wilson has a relatively small, but funny Twitter account with a focus on parenting humor with real stories from her family. She’s definitely worth a follow!
As for music for this week, let’s go back 2 years…to Blackpink’s “Boombayah.”
