My Favorite Music of 2022

After spending a couple hours writing my annual year-end blog post about my favorite music, I decided to throw in the towel and just point you at the page with all the "new to me" music this year with my favorites shown in bold font.

If you're curious, it's pretty easy to Google the band and album and find their Bandcamp page or a YouTube video for some streaming samples (as opposed to steaming samples which is an entirely different thing). And you should, because some of these albums are really really good.

Here is my music of 2022 including favorites.

So you can infer from my attitude about blogging that it's time for this one to end.

And so it will.

My Favorite Books of 2022

Just like 2021, work from home and lack of business travel has decimated my leisure reading this year. Before the pandemic, I had 90 minutes during my daily commute for audio books and plenty of business travel to read dead-tree books on flights. On top of that, my brain is so scrambled from work that I can barely remember what I did read let alone which ones were my favorites.

While that sounds rather sad, there weren't any stinkers or DNFs (did not finish). So at least there's that.

Why am I bothering to write this post? I don't know.

Here's my full 2022 reading list for the morbidly curious.
