JGib's Best of 2021 | Starts 12.11.2021:
Music list cutoff eligibility date for Top 360 of 2021: 12.06.2021.

 

 

Welcome to the 2021 edition of the JGib's Best of lists here on ATRL. 

Musically, this has been a big year for Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Foo Fighters, Machine Gun Kelly, Glass Animals, Luke Combs, Dua Lipa, Adele, Avril Lavigne, Thomas Rhett, Jason Aldean (both musically and for his open far-right views), and the return of S Club 7 lead singer Jo O'Meara, as they have released songs and/or albums. This year brought the demise of Morgan Wallen's fast-rising Country stardom, although Wallen has partially recovered from that fall from grace. 

 

This served as the year that the #FreeBritney movement got a big win, as Britney Spears's nearly 14-year conservatorship at the hands of Jamie Spears ended. 

 

COVID and its variants (Delta, Omicron, etc.) still dominated this year in the news worldwide, with vaccination efforts are growing across the world by the day by several companies, such as Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, AstraZeneca, Novavax, and others to get the COVID vaccine shots (and boosters) out to people across the world, with distribution to the nations varying. The COVID death toll continues its rise. 

 

As more and people across the world get vaccinated and boosted up, there remains an ugly undercurrent of anti-(COVID) vaccine propaganda being spread to people on social media outlets and news outlets across the political spectrum but is driven mainly by far-right actors featuring resistance to vaccination mandates issued by employers, schools, and local, state, and national jurisdictions, conspiracies about the COVID vaccines (eg. the false "vaccine shedding" conspiracy), and taking unproven "cures" such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Even certain vaccinated folks-- mostly right-leaning ones-- are also against vaccine mandates. More and more places are enacting vaccine mandates-- either unilaterally or for certain institutions-- such as Australia, New Zealand, New York City and Los Angeles in the US, Germany, and Austria.


While we're still on that note, COVID restrictions were aplenty at the beginning of the year, and depending on where you reside in the world, the non-vaccine mandate COVID restrictions (such as capacity limits, closure of in-person operations, or mask mandates) have either dwindled to almost nothing (many red states in the US, esp. Florida, Texas, and Missouri), kept somewhat intact (most blue states in the US, esp. New York, Illinois, Oregon, California; mainly mask mandates), or almost fully intact (most Canadian provinces, New Zealand, Australia, Germany). 

Abortion rights in the US are in very serious jeopardy, especially in red states like Texas, Mississippi, and Ohio. Texas passed the highly insane 6-week abortion ban law SB8 with bounty hunting provisions, and a big case at the Supreme Court looms with Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization regarding the 15-week ban in law HB1510, which seeks to overturn both Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. A ruling on Dobbs is expected to happen most likely in June 2022, and it's expected that Roe and Casey will be overturned in some form, meaning that at least 25 states-- largely GOP-controlled states-- will have abortion banned or seek to ban it within their borders. Thankfully, in blue states like California, Illinois, and New York, abortion access and reproductive freedom are greatly protected by state law and such states will seek to enact further protections on the right to obtain abortion. If anti-abortion forces are successful in getting Roe and Casey overturned outright or weakened significantly (keeping those two cases as settled law but rendered as though the cases are overturned) in Dobbs, then birth control, contraception, and LGBTQ+ rights (marriage equality and trans rights especially) could be on the chopping block at the court. 

 

The QAnon delusion cult's conspiracies show no signs of stopping, despite the alleged "Q" no longer posting to 8kun. The JFK Jr. reinstatement whackos have been camping out at Dealey Plaza in Dallas in the last month-plus. A small group of QAnon conspiracists have turned on Trump, mainly for being too pro-vaccine; however, most Q cultists still worship him and wrongly believe that he is the rightfully elected President that they want to see reinstated (Trump won't be reinstated and he lost the election legitimately). 

January 6th, 2021 was a dark day in American history, as a large mob of far-right Stop The Steal extremists fueled by conspiracies about a "stolen election" aided by Donald Trump's lies about the 2020 Presidential election outcome stormed the Capitol in DC in a bid to deny the certification of President Joe Biden (D)'s election to the Presidency in order to illegally keep Trump (R) in office past January 20th. After a long delay and 2 objections (AZ, PA), Biden was officially certified as the President by a joint session to ratify the Electoral College's results. The aftermath led to arrests and public shunnings of the insurrection participants and a 2nd impeachment of Donald Trump that he sadly got acquitted for in the Senate for his role in inciting the insurrection. Most GOP politicians and their conservative media allies embrace the Big Lie that Trump "won" the election that he lost fair and square. 

On the sports side, Arsenal missed out on European qualification for the first time since the 1994-95 season, before the Wenger era. Manchester City won the Premier League. Chelsea won the UEFA Champions League and Villarreal won the Europa League on penalties over Manchester United. This year saw the addition of the third-tier UEFA Europa Conference League. Tampa Bay Lightning repeated as Stanley Cup champions in the COVID-shortened NHL season. The Atlanta Braves won the World Series. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl in the NFL. The Milwaukee Bucks won the NBA Finals. NYCFC won the 2021 MLS Cup on penalties over Portland Timbers. Canada won the women's footy Gold in the COVID-delayed Tokyo Olympics (the USWNT medaling Bronze), with Brazil doing the same on the men's side. 

In my home state of Illinois, longtime House Speaker Michael Madigan (D) resigned after a long run in the State House, chairing the Democratic Party of Illinois, and his long tenure as House Speaker after multiple scandals have emerged in recent years. 

 

A new President took over America on January 20th, with Joe Biden (D) defeating the twice-impeached (once impeached at the time of election) incumbent "President" Donald Trump (R) to become the nation's 46th President. Kamala Harris (D) took the reigns as the 49th Vice President and the 1st Black and Asian person to occupy the role and the 1st woman to occupy one of the top 2 positions of power in the US (a woman has never been President of the US, although it came close to happening in 2016). The Democrats kept a majority in the House (albeit a much smaller majority) and flipped control of the Senate via a double-barreled runoff in Georgia (Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff) and the tiebreaking 101st vote via VP Harris.

This will be another great one :celestial4: 2021 was yet another messy year, but I don't think we're ever gonna have one that's not messy... at least music saved it, as usual.

While I have been able to go out this year, I still cannot get used to wearing masks all the time. That's why mostly I'd rather stay home. :lakitu:

 

Looking forward to your lists.

Later this morning, we'll have our first installment posted: The wannabes who missed out on the Top 360 Songs of 2021. 

 

Let's hope and pray Arsenal get a win over Southampton, because we cannot afford to drop any more points than the 6 dropped the last two games.    

 

Until then, leave comments.
