Jon: I've been cramming 2014 music in search of selections for my year-end mix, having failed to stay on top of music this year.
Adam: Tell me about it. It's next to impossible to keep up when you have an adult life.
Jon: I totally understand now why Grammy nominations are so lame. Music is a young man's game.
Jon: Did I tell you the cover art for my mix?
Adam: The True Detective/Spaceballs mash-up?
Jon: No, I reluctantly had to abandon that idea. I couldn't make it work as cover art, and couldn't in good conscience waste Jon Wilcox's time illustrating something that has no reason to exist except for my pleasure.
Jon: How much do you think a freelance artist would charge? And would one even bite? "I want a True Detective/Spaceballs mash-up for pleasure."
Jon: Yeah, FIGHT SCENES OF THE YEAR is coming along – seventh annual! I'm also considering CINEMATOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR and THE YEAR IN BONERS montages.
Adam: Are you doing a BEST FILMS list?
Jon: Ehh… I tried drafting a list, but after 1. Whiplash and 2. The Tribe, I don't have any strong feelings. I'm doing a BEST TELEVISION SHOWS list, though. In fact, it's pretty much finalized.
2. Nathan For You
3. The Eric Andre Show
4. Rick and Morty
7. Utopia [UK]
9. Game of Thrones
Jon: I'm waiting on the Black Mirror Christmas special for BEST TELEVISION EPISODES.
