Things I enjoyed in 2016

I really struggled to put this year-end roundup together this time around because I was really, very busy for much of the year. 2016 was a massive blur, and I can’t remember if I either consumed too much or not enough media hence the kind of shit list. But tradition is tradition, and if you’re willing to stick around for another year, 2017’s will be undoubtedly better.
