Hey, Tuesday friends! It's somehow both a relief and a surprise to know that we're closer to the end of this year now than the start of it. Can you believe all of the things that happened in 2018? I can't, because I can barely remember what happened last week.
But I'm finding comfort in some very specific TV shows this time of year: Nailed It, anyone? Or Great British Bake-Off? I can only bake marginally well but watching others put together some magic in the oven (or not, depending on the show) has been a very cathartic experience.
You know what else is calming? Reading some good links.

- Annihilation and the higher bar of representation. (Dread Central)
- From The Walking Dead to True Detective, this year was replete with bad wigs that suggested a casual disregard for black people’s interiority. (BuzzFeed)
