December 2021

Hello readers, December is traditionally a good month for “festivities” but a slow month for “discourse”, with many critics, essayists and content-makers opting to take a little break or put out some sort of top ten list. Meanwhile, others chose to upload…

November 2021

Hello readers, Yes, that time of the month has arbitrarily arrived: videodiscourserounduptime. For the final time in 2021, no less. I feel like I should say something grand here to mark the turning of pages, but I have nothing. It’s been a…

October 2021
