It's that time of year again. We're inundated with year end lists, opinionated internet blabbermouths try and tell you what was good and what wasn't and here at Youngblood WE'RE NO DIFFERENT. To the casual music listener/theater goer who visits this blog, you might be thinking: "50 albums? Were there even 50 good albums this year? Did 50 albums even come out this year?"

The anser is yes! Let's go to the Word document I've been updating since January of all the records that I've been listening to like the big fucking nerd I am.

50. Heems - Wild Water Kingdom

I think I'm not alone in saying I want to redesign my apartment to look like the set of "Going Out and Coming Back." 

Q: What celebrated American trapshooter, a fella some have celebrated as the father of organized trapshooting in America, also wrote a novel about a group of lady-hating men who go to sea?
A: John Philip Sousa!

Bonus question:

How does this excellent-sounding novel end?

Well! While the men have been hating on women, and sailing around a lot, it turns out the captain's niece has stowed herself away on the boat. She persuades the men that women aren't so bad after all!

It all comes together in a love story:

The Youngblood app is nearly ready to be released.

Actually, that's not true. We're barely able to blog, let alone go mobile. But Youngblood has gone largely paperless this year. Instead of killing trees and jamming the EST printer, we bring our various tablet devices to meetings, email out the script, and read the plays Adobe style. Only occasionally does this lead to awkward pauses where somebody has accidentally scrolled to the bottom of the pdf.

One of the drawbacks of this, however, is the loss of one of my favorite unspoken Youngblood rituals.
