30 pieces of David Foster Wallace contributions to the literary canon — most are links to essays or short stories; one is a picture of me in costumer as an Infinite Jest character — to mark nine years since The Great Man’s felo de se.
This post has lotsa spoilers for the Netflix original series 13 Reasons Why, which you definitely should watch before reading! (But step inside a give me a pageview regardless!)
The 2016 Hottest 100 is this week and to mark the occasion, I’ve trawled through the history of the countdown to compile a composite playlist of songs from the past 20-plus years.
Every day till the end of 2016 I will be posting the latest entry in the Top 16 Films, Albums, TV and Books of 2016 — today is #9 — with #1s being announced on New Year’s Eve. Also today: the Year in Trivia and Best Football Moments of 2016.

When one of my colleagues resigned to start a new job, he requested for his last day post-lunch festivities an office Star Wars quiz. As the resident trivia buff and filthy casual SW attendee, the honour fell to me to write and present the quiz. Here it is for you to enjoy!
(Text message from friend Mark (sic): can you email me a patrick rundown on coldplay? best songs, statistical analysis etc? thanks.) He wasn’t expecting 6,303, nay 6,457, words in response…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! At least it is for me! Once again I will be looking back on the year that was in an epic podcast covering the best in films, TV, sport, news, humanity, rockclimbing, books, memes and plenty more besides. At the heart of this review will be my analysis of 2016 in music, including the best albums, gigs and, the centrepiece of this endeavour, the #P100 – The Top 100 Songs of 2016.
If you enjoy a nicely curated emoji representation of an album musical and artistic merit, then this is the place for you!
