It's nearly the end of another long, hard, mostly horrible year. (Meri Kuri to all, by the way.) And while it feels mostly foolish to hold onto hopes and dreams at this point, there is now at least one reason to live in 2022: Girls On Top. In a crossover event infinitely more ambitious than…

The Actually Iconic Return of the Actually Iconic ABBA Begins

ABBA. The term "iconic" is beaten to death, thanks to the Internet and Stan Twitter, and maybe also sometimes me. But in this case, it's only appropriate. The legitimately legendary Swedish troupe and Eurovision winners-turned-global icons - responsible for every pop song you've ever known and…
