I know what I said at the end of last year about everyone being a lot less murder-y seemed like it might me a tough one to do, but I'm happy to report that this has actually been moving in a positive direction. That's great. Let's keep at it and see if we can continue that trend.
Perhaps it's the way I worded it, or maybe there were some crossed wires in there somewhere, but it seems that the lack of murdery-ness has been replaced with taking some amazingly talented and legendary actors and musicians this year, and I'm hoping that you guys can put the same effort into seeing that this stops, if that's not too much to ask.

First David Bowie, now Alan Rickman. If any more beloved Brits die this year I'm going to suspect George R. R. Martin.— OhNoSheTwitnt (@OhNoSheTwitnt) January 14, 2016
I mean, Lemmy Kilmeister, David Bowie, Alan Rickman (that one really hurt), Dan Haggerty...All over the course of one freaking week! At the very least, could we spread it around a bit to make it not such a shock?
|Yeah, if you could just do that, that'd be great...|
Anyway, it's been a week. There was another Republican debate. I don't know what happened, and I really don't care. All's I want to see from those guys is one final no-holds-barred cage match where everyone gets in there and throws down until there's only one left. Problem solved.
|And then...NACHOS FOR EVERYBODY!|
Well, his people did say it was going to be different from the norm. Nobody was expecting a comedy roast, though.
And, of course, there were tweets. Lots and lots of tweets coming from the fine, funny folks at Twitter. By an amazing coincidence, I happened to grab a small pile of them to stick in your eyes, so what say we take a look at 'em, shall we?
In no particular order...
