Each year I pull together the year in review videos that I see, and don’t worry, I am working on my own year in review video (although it might come out a few days after the New Year).
First up, the amazing video from Google:
DJ Earworm returns with his mashup of the year:
And here is this year’s Youtube Rewind, which, I really actually don’t like that much, mostly because there are only a very small few of these creators that I recognize and watch, but it’s still kind of fun:

A Dutch news program takes on (with dark humor) the insanity that we live with here in the US:
Stranger Things 2 (or the second season, not sure what to call it) looks amazing:
The president rolls back the mandate for birth control under health care, because he wants to drive up abortion rates, the cost of healhtcare and get rid of preventative medicine. Just kidding, he’s a racist and since it is both something Obama put into place and a GOP wet-dream, it’s gone.
And I’ll just drop this here, the 10 things you need to know about Patriotism:
