7 New genres of music you became interested in

I'm happier than a Bulldog on a hog's ear, since someone stormed into my life in 2016 and gave me the Blues... - Britgirl

I pretty much got into music in 2016... - PeeledBanana

Became quite interested in making interesting music interesting to someone with serendipitously enthusiastic interest in interesting music, and who also is particularly (and serendipitously), well... interesting (particularly, her particular and peculiar interest in a particularly and peculiarly warped sense of what the staff down at the Institute for the Very, Very Nervous would euphemistically refer to as, humor:).

This has changed my life in such a positive way. It might sound silly to some, but it feels like the sun hasn't stopped shining since the middle of 2016 when I was introduced to Blues but not just Blues, but to music itself! I discovered myself through this music as well. One particular gentleman has changed my life. He knows who he is. Thank you :). - Britgirl

The Contenders

11 Made one very special friend

Yeah... But It was a complicated relationship... Decided to move on, Decided not to talk again but I don't why I still think about that...but anyways Stay blessed you dear - Righteous

Certainly won't forget the year I made a Very special friend. Someone who will always be in my life even when he can't be. - Britgirl

As a late, great American sage once observed, "It ain't over 'til it's over."

On Roblox, I made one. c: - LemonComputer

12 Harambe Harambe "Harambe" (27th May 1999 - 28th May 2016) was the name of a male western lowland gorilla in the Cincinatti Zoo who was shot and killed by a staff member in 2016 due to child negligence, sparking public outrage and later a revered internet meme .

So many people were upset. Really guys the kid could have been killed, he was drug through the water a could have drowned. People say he was trying to help the boy, how do you know? Your adding human emotions to this. The gorilla could have easily killed him. People who think like me are labeled as terrible people. Really we were worried about the kid, you weren't. We're terrible? - RustyNail

I certainly remember the ridiculous mourning towards the death of a wild animal, especially when a young innocent child was at risk here. - Mrveteran

Why isn't this higher?!

Dear god, I can see it now. "Hey remember the year where we worshipped a dead gorilla? "

"Oh yeah, those were some weird times." - cjWriter1997
