If there isn't enough of a deal for covering the alt charts, then here's what I'd vote on for a year-end list review: 1981, 1960, 1997, 2003 Either one will do. I'd think it'd be interesting to try and cover a year-end list that feels disposable at most. (Maybe except 2003, since I think that's usually up most of our allies.)
Hey, look who's back.
(Also, by the time the Christmas SWYAD comes around, expect the return of Cousin Mel.)

Can someone explain to me what AJR and Theory of a Deadman are doing on the Alt charts and why we're still apparently making both groups a thing?

AJR was pretty fine at first with "I'm Ready..."
But then they released one of the worst albums of 2017. It's not as horrifying as Spectrum Pulse suggests, who gave it a 1/10, but it still operates at least at a strong 2/10 for me. The Click is the kind of album that could've had some good potential, but yet it was completely ruined by the way it was executed.
And in case you guys aren't warned, let me recap on some of the tracks on AJR's album.
"Overture" starts off good before proceeding into a chopped and screwed drop. And when it tries to redeem itself with the emotional-sounding portion, it then creates a messy mashup with a few of their other tracks. "Weak" has those horrible pseudo-Beach Boys falsettos in the chorus. "Sober Up," the song currently on the Alt charts, entails the singer telling a girl he hasn't known since recess in second grade to make him sober and has a pick-up line that goes "My favorite color is you." In "Netflix Trip," the singer looks back on the most important times of his life (his first crush, watching his mother grieve his grandfather's death, his eighth grade graduation) and connects them to his experience with watching The Office on Netflix, which happened during all those times. In "I'm Not Famous," the singer flaunts about he has no haters, doesn't get judged so much, and that no one cares about what he does because he's not a celebrity. "Three-Thirty" breaks the fourth wall ("how am I supposed to fit this in 3:30?") and tells its audience that they should listen before they skip the song because the band is only human and they don't stay for long. There's even one line that goes "I thought I had ADHD, but that's a real thing, and I'm just lazy." "The Good Part" is one of the most ironic titles for a song and has the second-most annoying set of falsettos on the album. And "No Grass Today" has a drop that sounds like....well, something in which I can't provide a link to. (TubeChop is not working for me ATM.)
Really, if you want to indulge in an album with a similar sound, I suggest just sticking to Jon Bellion's The Human Condition. It's not a superb album, but it's definitely polished a lot better than The Click.
use ytcropper my dude
ANNNNND it turns out none of the McDonald's closest to me have the Mulan sauce. The nearest ones that do have the sauce are like 45 minutes away from where I am, so I decided not to waste my time on that and make my own Mulan sauce when I have the time and money for it. Hopefully another revival will follow up soon and if I ever get my hands the McDonald's szechuan sauce, it'll be worth the wait.
I really like how this show is getting some renewed interest these days. Then again, we had that one Butch Hartman crossover video from months ago. The show still holds up in its time. The characters, the storylines, the humor, the tone, it's all so good. It's easily the best project from Butch Hartman, yet we can all thank Steve Marmel for making it as good. Season 3, it has its great moments and its mediocre moments. It had a proper finale, as well as a few select gems like "D-Stabilized," "Urban Jungle," "Infinite Realms," and "Boxed Up Fury." The more light-hearted nature in S3 pretty much shows when it comes to episodes like "Livin' Large," "Torrent of Terror," and "Forever Phantom" that don't stand out so well. They're not bad episodes, but still, I find Season 3 to be good rather than spectacular. A Danny Phantom revival would be good, but I pray that Butch's current writing team doesn't get attached to it with their hands all dirty.
CN has released this bumper to celebrate their 25th anniversary. If you couldn't tell already, Cartoon Network has barely done anything towards their schedule on the day of the anniversary to celebrate it, and somehow this is still Christina Miller's fault and not because Vishnu is so insecure to provide us the variety that we've all been yearning for, but still, we got this, and...while I hope that this isn't all CN has to offer for celebrating their anniversary, this is a very cool looking bumper. In spite of all the cries of well...whatever characters were missing, or "OMG SCREW U CN I CAN'T BELIEVE U WOULD SHOW FOUR ARMS DABBING, STOP TRYING TO BE COOL," it's still a good enough way to celebrate the network's milestone. Apologies if I'm still coming off as condescending towards these kind of unsatisfactory CN fans, but they're giving me more reasons to defend Nickelodeon's overbearing fans each month.
Can I just say that I hate HATE Disney XD's new strategy in which they now air new episodes at a frequent pace for one month after stagnating them for few to several months? Over the course of this year, we've had two Milo bombs, one Star bomb with another one coming in November, one Pickle & Peanut bomb coming in October, and one Penn bomb (but then again, DXD had been yanking this show on a chain.)

Wouldn't surprise me if Star Vs. was partially to blame for Wander's cancellation because the show took off early and Disney may have thought, "Oh, Star could be our next Gravity Falls! Wander doesn't need any more seasons! It's a waste of our resources anyway!"
Yeah, Disney seems to have the same mentality as Nick in which if a show doesn't become popular during the first season, then it won't earn more than 2 seasons.
I remember Craig saying that the Disney Television Animation and Disney XD studios liked Wander, but the higher ups thought differently since they're the ones who actually make investments. I guess money really does talk.
Pumpkinhead replied to Graveyard Smash's topic in Downtown Bikini BottomJust thought that I'd also point this out: the year-end lists do not represent the biggest hits from the year, they represent the biggest hits of the year. In addition, the year-end lists determine a song's performance during the December-November tracking period. So granted, if a hit album or single was released late into a year, it's considered more successful in the later year because tracking period was over or was almost done when the album or single started to become a success. Like what Wumbo said, all these year-end lists are right here, including 1982: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billboard_Year-End_Hot_100_singles_of_1982 Now, on topic of the review for 1982, I can't wait. It's one of those iconic years alongside its three successors 1983, 1984, and 1985. Also, #GiveWumboANine
It'll change soon, but right now, Big Mouth has a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Now it looks like I'm gonna have watch one or more episodes to see whether or not I'm delusional for hating the show immediately after seeing the trailer.
(That moment when you're about to make a topic about vinyls before checking first to see that a thread for it does exist.) I've started forming a vinyl collection since only the past year. I don't actually have a very big collection, mine has been stagnant since newer vinyl records are expensive, and I'm more attached towards those. Anyways, this is all that I currently own on vinyl: Blackholes and Revelations - Muse (The very first one that I've owned.) Aladdin Sane - David Bowie Every Open Eye - CHVRCHES Homework - Daft Punk Rumours - Fleetwood Mac Beauty and the Beat - The Go-Go's Once again, it's a short start.
Just because something that you don't like is getting a movie doesn't mean it's destined be a box office bomb, let alone "the most unsuccessful film in history." I'm being a bit of a realist here, but news flash, we haven't gotten any information about this movie besides what we just got. Also, what best defines a box office bomb is a film that has gotten very little exposure and hype. Take "Freddie as F.R.O.7." as an example, which is currently considered to be the worst performing animated movie of all time based on a U.S. domestic gross of $1 million. If you haven't heard of it until I mentioned it, then I don't need to say anything else. I'll just leave it here. I don't want to make this thread reminiscent of The Magic School Bus Rides Again topic.
To be fair, the first Equestria Girls film had a limited theater release, and I don't think anyone complained about the theaters being filled with older guys. I want to see the MLP movie in theaters, but I'm probably not going to be able to, being a closeted brony. Also, the movie has a PG rating (surprising to me considering how tame MLP:FiM usually is), so I don't think anyone would feel any shame for being dragged into a theater filled with older men. There will be parents with their kids as there will be older men in the theater. I believe hardly anyone would treat that like it's their own business. Teen Titans Go is overhated even in my eyes, but I can't blame anyone for detesting it or consistently talking about how it's a big burden to Cartoon Network. The way I see how the majority are going to react to this news, it's only going to be the same song and dance. People painting 2017 as the worst year for CN because of the TTG burnout and because of a select few duds is actually more tedious to me than the constant complaints about TTG, IMO.
