  1. Will pull the others from the blogspot vault at some point (the 2020 best list is being a real pain in the butt that I'm just considering linking it instead), but for now, time to ring out 2021 with the first of the lists. The worst hit music of 2021. This was not a particularly good year to write the worst list. Not because of the content as a whole this year because to be honest, this was a perfectly fine year. I mean it wasn’t 2020, but it was a perfectly decent transition year. But my reasons are quite simple…does music still even matter anymore? I mean with the way the world has been for the last two years, I ask this question with all serious intent. Because the news of the world just keeps dominating the cultural zeitgeist and topic points to the point that the entertainment that use to distract us from even the worst of yesteryear feels like it is not as existent as it used to be. Even to me, an entertainment buff like myself, I feel less and less wanting to talk about movies and music as much as I use to. They feel more like a chore to me more than a great distraction. And don’t take this as me wanting to stop doing this sort of thing. Not at all. I will always be glad to discuss. But I feel with the way the world is slowly spiraling, that I more or less want to talk about what we can do as a society to turn things around or at least watch in real time every bad mistake that is being made or how incompetent our political system is. Or how even a life-saving vaccine and wanting to be a decent human being and caring for others has turned into becoming a political statement...yeah its quite easy to get pissed off at the world that we are living in. But alas, the more I focus on how fucked up the world is at the moment, the more cynical I’ve become. And I don’t want to be a cynical old man (I’m not that old I swear). I want to talk about things that make me happy. And despite music being one of the last topics on a lot of people’s minds, I’ve got to admit. This whole niche ecosystem that streaming has made music listening has in fact given us some pretty quality hit music. As the world starts to open back up again as we are learning to live with the pandemic that has turned our world upside down, we are slowly starting to see more and more of the big names come out of quarantine with new album releases and new music to bring onto us. I’m excited for the future of the music industry, even if it is not as big as it once was. I mean for god’s sake we have TWO Christmas songs as some of the 100 biggest hits of 2021. That’s a sign that for most of this year, nobody cared to release anything truly worth discussing. I mean the biggest topics of this year were about Olivia Rodrigo’s relationship drama, Morgan Wallen canceling himself right when he was about to be the biggest country music crossover star since Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X trolling conservatives with his clickbait, the power of BTS stans manipulating the charts, and a douche (Kanye) vs a turd sandwich (Drake). Compare that to 2019 where nearly every number one of that year had some sort of thought provoking controversy attached to it. I find it fitting that a good portion of this year was a lot of music that charted in 2020 over 2021 because there were barely any album bombs for a decent while. Don’t look at me. Blame Billboard’s stupid year end tracking system. But of course, we have to start this list season off with the entry that gets me my most annual hits. The worst list. And despite what I’ve said about 2021 being overall a decent 6/10 year, this is the first time in three years where I had a lot of solid contenders for the worst list. So let's not waste any more time and start things off with the dishonorable mentions. DISHONORABLE MENTIONS: Now that we got that out of the way, there is one more thing I would like to make clear before I start this list season off. Both my best and worst lists this year are going to be Top Elevens. Why eleven? Because I like to go one step further. Let's just say I have some 2020 backwash that I've already talked about a plenty that I want to make these lists as authentic as possible. I do actually have some more to say about these songs that are two years old now each so trust me when I say that it won't be tired material. Got it? Good. Now let's go crazy. We're counting down. THE TOP ELEVEN WORST HIT SONGS OF 2021 Best List coming soon. Thanks for reading SBC fam. Love you guys!
  2. Straight from the Blogspot Vault, here's my 2020 Worst List: 2020. Do I need to go any further? When my children ask me what year was the worst to live through, I’ll tell them 2020. While I had two personal highs this year in terms of buying my first house and meeting my nephew, the cultural zeitgeist was just too hard to ignore. The entire world hitting a screeching halt with a pandemic that killed millions, massive protests over social injustice that led to civil unrest, the ever-looming threats of another world war, the political divide becoming all the more toxic. And that was only the first five months of the year. I didn't even get to an overactive hurricane season, the election, and murder hornets. I’ve already let my thoughts slip through about my many MANY insights as to the events this year brought onto us and I really don’t want to sound like a broken record at this point. Because there is far too much negativity in this world. One of my friends once told me that reading this blog is like handing out a dose of serotonin to her life. And that’s what my intentions are with this blog. To bring some positivity and entertainment towards this dark timeline we are in. And that’s what I constantly aimed to do throughout this year. Give people reading a much needed break from the reality we are currently sitting through. And honestly? I have a lot of things to say about music this year. So much so that I’m considering expanding a top ten best hit songs list for the year that was 2020. 2020 may have been one of the worst years of all-time, but the one thing it had going right was the hit music of the year was some of the best we’ve gotten this century. I’m not sure if this was the direction that music was heading towards before the pandemic threw a wrench in everybody’s plans but I enjoyed so many of the minor trends that were coming whether it be the sub-trends of 80s inspired synthpop, a 2000’s nostalgia boom, emo rappers bringing rock music back, trap music starting to sound more introspective…I could go on about how many sub-genres worked this year for me that were becoming mainstream. But for as much as I loved the trends that were, and still are to an extent, emerging; reality set in. The pandemic threw a lot out the window for this year. To the point that music became one of the last topics that mattered to people in the general public. If you are reading this and are as big of a music nerd like me, you’ll know that when it came to the metrics, this was one of the weaker point differential years in popular music this year. You all want to know why this year set a new record for most number one hits in a single year? Because it was very easy to obtain. A few weeks ago in early November during one of the weeks where “Mood” by 24KGoldn & iann dior was at number one, it had the same number of points as “Heartless” by The Weeknd the year prior when that was number seventeen that charting year of 2019. You guys see my point? And quite honestly, there is a lot to explain for the three main metrics. Streaming as a whole is down by twenty percent this year over last. The radio, an already declining format of telling what’s popular in the music industry, are even further behind at understanding what’s popular due to most of their chart analysts being out of work due to the pandemic. And sales, another declining format, had to get creative with how to adapt due to the economy also being down thanks to the climate we are living in. So yeah, in a year where the music that we did get was still pretty great in a sense, music was one of the last things that mattered because there were more important topics at hand to focus on. Look I can sit here and ramble on about the music trends of this year because I didn’t even get to some of the important ones like viral trends and stan armies getting more control of these number one races, but alas, I know why you are all here and I don’t want to delay this any further. I know which content gets more views, so like tradition states, let’s start it off by talking about some of the worst music this year had to offer. And while we may have gotten some damn great music this year, we got our fair share of bad music as well. Other music critics may compare the great stuff with some of the best pop music decades like the 80s and the late 90s. However, when it comes to the bad music, I think a good comparison is 2018 where we either got a fair share of hits from problematic people, a lot of pop music on autopilot, or finding myself questioning who some of these hits are even for. But enough preamble, let's get those dishonorable mentions out of the way before tackling on that main course: Okay now that that's out of the way, let's do a proper goodbye to these last 10,000 hours and hope for a better 10,000 more. We're counting down! THE TOP TEN WORST HIT SONGS OF 2020 Thoughts One Year Later: Yeah wouldn't change a thing about any of these. At the time it was really hard to work around a glitch my blog was having where media links were not embedding, so some of the videos or photos that are in this post are different from the ones from the original, but yeah otherwise all the content is accurate. Would I make any additional changes to rankings? Honestly, outside of "Yummy" by Justin Bieber being another dishonorable mention because it truly is a spectacular trainwreck, I wouldn't change a single post from my top ten. Hate all these songs. Next up, my (yikes) Top Twenty Best Hit Songs of 2020. That one is going to be all sorts of challenging to import onto here. But looking forward to seeing what sorts of reactions that will get for those who didn't already read it.
  3. Yep. You're reading this right. I'm bringing this back from the dead. For one last hurrah. I mean after all its been ten years of these....except for last year...which you can find on my blog. cheap plug is supremely cheap...follow me But ever since I've distanced myself from SBC as far as I have, I always couldn't help but feel like my departure from sharing these was as abrupt as it was. I mean I just decided to drop everything like a fly and just moved on to do my own thing. Which has gone fairly okay-ish. My blog may not be as active as it use to be, but I've taken on a few minor writing gigs on sites like Fiverr and have had a few interviews. Still keeping at it despite not being as active as it was last year. That being said, I know where I got my start and found my passion for writing through this tight knit group of friends and I would like to thank you all by finishing up what I started with the "tenth" and final anniversary of doing these lists on here for one last time. After all, it is the holidays and we need to spread Christmas cheer and give back to our friends and loved ones. And I will be sticking to sharing this post on my blog like I did last year, but sharing it on here as well at the exact same time. So whether you chose to read my blog or SBC, the decision is up to you. But I will be sharing my 2020 lists in this thread as well to make up for some lost time on here before I get around to sharing my lists on here for 2021. So happy ten years and looking forward to sharing my year-end lists next month. And looking forward to reading yours as well if you chose to do a couple yourself.
  4. Hey I'm back for another round! 113. Big Fat Fact-Checker Film: Big Fat Liar Mythix is a compulsive liar and slacker living in the fictional city of SBC. Mythix tries to get out of his creative writing essay by making up obvious lies, but gets caught by his English teacher, Mr.Wumbo, who alerts his parents that Mythix has repeatedly shared false information and that the independent fact-checkers said the information Mythix has provided is false. He is given three hours to submit his essay or he will fail English and repeat it in summer school. Mythix uses his talent for spreading obviously fake news to write a story titled "Big Fat Fact-Checker". While riding his old bike to turn in the essay, Mythix is run over by the limousine of an arrogant Hollywood screenwriter and producer, SBL, and he convinces SBL to give him a ride. SBL is in town shooting his action comedy film Crock Blocked. During the ride, SBL admits he also tells lies and that the truth is overrated. In a rush, Mythix accidentally leaves his essay in the limo when it falls out of his backpack. SBL is inspired by the story when he reads it and decides to keep it for himself. Realizing his essay is missing, Mythix tries to explain what happened, but neither his parents nor Mr. Wumbo believe him and he is sent to summer school to repeat English. Mythix and his best friend, Homie, later discover SBL has plagiarized Mythix's essay into a fake news media propaganda when they see a trailer for it at the movie theater. During the long weekend, they fly to SBCinemaland while their parents are out of town, and Mythix and Homie sneak into SBL’s office at his eponymous studio to request that SBL confess to his parents, only for SBL to purposefully burn Mythix's essay and call security to remove them. Angered, they decide to inconvenience him until he confesses. SBL's former limo driver and struggling actor, Aquatic Nuggets, agrees to help Mythix and Homie get him back because of his own troubled history with him. They sabotage SBL through a number of pranks, like dying his skin yellow and hair pink, super gluing his headset to his ear, tricking him into going to JCM, in a cameo’s, birthday party, where JCM mistakes him for the hired clown and beats him up, and tampering the controls to his car, causing it to malfunction and play Tom MacDonald’s “Fake Woke”. SBL's car is also rear-ended by a cranky elderly woman, knocking it forward into a violent monster truck owned by a wrestler known as The Old Man Jenkins. Thinking SBL nearly hit him, The Old Man Jenkins destroys his car with his truck. SBL plans to produce Big Fat Fact-Checker with SBCinema, but Jjsthekid, the newly-appointed president of the SBCinemas, loses confidence in SBL after the critical and box office failure of his latest film Crock Blocked. Jjs declines to approve the budget for Big Fat Fact-Checker, so Mythix agrees to help SBL in exchange for his confession to his parents. With Mythix’s advice, SBL makes a successful presentation which gets the film approved by SBCinema, but SBL subsequently betrays Mythix and calls security to remove him and Homie for the second time. SBL's assistant, Cha, has grown tired of his reporting behavior and treatment of her and decides to help Mythix and Homie to expose him. They gather SBLNN's other tormented employees and devise a plan to expose him, while Mythix has his parents fly to SBCinemaland after admitting to them what he did the whole weekend. The next morning, SBL heads to the news network to begin filming Big Fat Fact-Checker, but his employees delay him through a number of mishaps. As SBL finally arrives, he encounters Mythix, who kidnaps his NFTs. Mythix flees across the studio, luring SBL to a rooftop where he retrieves his NFT and mocks Mythix for trying to make him confess, admitting his actions, arrogantly believing no one is listening or ever will, and proclaiming he will never tell the truth to anyone, believing the truth to be overrated. However, the entire conversation is revealed to have been caught on camera and is witnessed by Mythix's parents, the media, and Jjs, who immediately fires SBL for his actions. Mythix thanks SBL for teaching him an important lesson about the truth not being overrated. SBL insanely laughs, angrily threatens to get him back and furiously tries to attack him, but luckily, Mythix leaps off the building, and safely lands on a stunt cushion, where he finally regains his parents' trust. At the end of the film, SBCinema produces Big Fat Fact-Checker after SBL's firing while using the skills of people whom he had abused. The film becomes a critical and commercial success, with Mythix receiving full credit for writing his original story, pleasing his parents and Mr. Wumbo. Meanwhile, SBL declares bankruptcy and begins a new job as a birthday clown. THIS EPISODE OF SBCINEMA IS BEING DISPUTED REASON: FOR SPREADING LIES ABOUT SBLNN

  7. What else can I say except thank you all for following this show for as long as we have. Even amidst a pandemic, the SBCinema will continue to keep running. Here's to hopefully another 100 episodes! And with that out of the way, onto the feature presentation: 100. Boomer Film: Joker (2019) Internet clown and aspiring QAnon conspiracy theorist, Todd Phillips lives with his mother, Jenna, in SBC City. SBC is rife with crime and unemployment, leaving swaths of the population disenfranchised and impoverished. Todd suffers from a medical disorder that causes him to rant at inappropriate times, depending on retweets and follows for medication. After a gang of spammers attacks Todd in an alley, his co-worker Ssj gives him a gun for protection. Todd pursues a relationship with his neighbor, single mother Katie, and invites her to his upcoming twitter rant routine against the liberal agenda. Live on Twitch. While entertaining at a church, Todd's gun falls out of his pocket. Ssj plays devils advocate that Todd bought the gun so he can touch himself at night, and Todd is fired. On the subway, still in his internet clown makeup, Todd is beaten by three drunken Wumbo Enterprises businessmen (Fred, Steel, and Kevin) singing that Frank Sinatra classic….”Send in the Internet Clowns”; he shoots Fred and Steel in self-defense and wounds Kevin before pursuing him off the train and executing him on the stairs calling him dumb. The killings are condemned by billionaire mayoral candidate Ralph Wiggum Fan, who calls those envious of more successful people "internet clowns." Demonstrations against SBC's rich begin, with protesters donning internet clown masks in Todd's image. His controversial rant routines shut down Todd’s favorite conservative platform, Parler. Katie attends Todd's twitter rant routine, which goes poorly; he goes off on tirades about stolen elections and how Mike Pence is a traitor and has difficulty delivering his jokes. Todd's idol, popular talk show host, SBL News Network, mocks Todd by showing tweets from his twitter rant routine on his show. Todd intercepts a letter written by Jenna to Wiggum, alleging that he is Wiggum's illegitimate son, and berates his mother for hiding the truth. Todd goes to Wiggum Manor, where he meets Wiggum's young son JCM, in a cameo, but flees after a scuffle with the family butler Old Man Jenkworth. Following a visit from two SBC City Police Department detectives Jjs and SOF investigating Todd's involvement in the train murders, Jenna suffers a stroke and is hospitalized. Todd sneaks into a private viewing event presenting the first SBCinema film "User Centipede" and confronts Wiggum, who tells him that Jenna never sent him a sexy message and is not his biological mother. In denial, Todd visits Discord State Hospital and steals Jenna's case file; the file says Jenna adopted Todd as a baby and allowed her abusive boyfriend to harm them both. However, Jenna claims that Wiggum used his influence to fabricate the adoption to hide their affair. Distraught, Todd returns home and enters Katie's apartment unannounced. Frightened, Katie tells him to stop creeping; their relationship was merely a figment of Todd's imagination. The following day, Todd kills Jenna at the hospital. Todd is invited to appear on SBL's show due to the unexpected popularity of his routine's clips. As he prepares, Todd is visited by ex-colleagues Ssj and Zaid. Todd murders Ssj but spares Zaid for giving him a gift card to Circuit City. En route to the studio, Todd is pursued by Jjs and SOF onto a train filled with internet clown protesters. SOF accidentally shoots a protester and incites a riot, allowing Todd to escape; the rioters brutally beat Jjs and SOF as Todd leaves. Before the show goes live, Todd requests that SBL introduce him as Boomer, a reference to SBL's previous mockery. Todd walks out to applause, but starts telling morbid conspiracy theories, confesses to the train murders, rants about how society abandons the classic shows of the 90s, and berates SBL for mocking him on the previous segment. When SBL criticizes him and threatens to call the police, Todd shoots him twice on live television, killing him; he is arrested for murder as riots break out across SBC. One of the rioters corners the Wiggum family in an alley and murders Wiggum and his wife, Megan Thee Stallion, sparing JCM, for another cameo. Rioters in an ambulance crash into the police car carrying Todd, freeing him; he stands atop the car, tells his followers that Trump will become president again on March 4th to the cheers of the crowd, and smears blood on his face in the form of a smile. On Discord, Todd laughs to himself about a joke and tells his psychiatrist Jared Leto that he would not understand it. Jared Leto asks if it’s because we live in a society. Seconds later, Todd runs from an orderly, leaving behind a trail of bloodied footprints. Proving Leto correct: Directed by the guy who made The Hangover….whatever his name was….

    Honestly I’ve been so busy in quarantine doing yard work the last few days that I completely forgot to do work on my movie lists. But we shall see about that TV one. It’s not out of the realm of possibility. WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE!?
  9. Are you done with those Yahoos?
  10. Let me know when the game finally gets released and not this beta test version that’s been making headlines calling itself Cyberpunk 2077.
  11. Surprised to see not a single post about the game since it was released. I mean after all, it’s the most talked about game of 2020 (unless we are counting Cyberpunk 2077 for all the wrong reasons). Love the game, although the GameCube original and arguably New Leaf are both better at this point and time. Maybe after another year or two of updates, this will feel less like a console version of New Leaf and bring us more depth and excitement. Because after my island became five stars, I wanted more tasks to do than what was provided. But I will give New Horizons the same praise many people have given it this year. It helped keep me sane during the pandemic and provide a badly needed sense of escapism. Hell I’m still playing it now although not nearly as much as I did in the pandemic early days. It’s still giving me serotonin in a year where a lot of people need it. My squad btw (with my wife in a cameo):

    On the forums twice in one week? Now the world is ending. Same. Hanging in there is a mood right now.
  13. What a finale. I cheered. I cried. Hell I logged on to talk about it. It was a roller coaster ride of emotions that still has me shaken one day later. This is the way (yes that was intentional) to end a season leaving me wanting the next one right away. December 2021 can’t come fast enough.
