The Crummy.com Review of Things 2022: Here we go, another year gone and I'm no wiser than before. But I do have some quality recommendations for you!


2022 was a year where I read a few really long books rather than a lot of shorter ones. Here are my top three of 2022:

Live Events

The big live event for me in 2022 was seeing Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster in the Music Man revival. It's my favorite musical, as I've surely mentioned here before, and seeing a live professional production live of it a real bucket-list event. We're not going to end up like that sap in The Apartment!

I also did more museum outings and whatnot than I did in 2021, and even took a trip to California to see my family, for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

The Music Man Playbill Ancient D20s seen in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.


As usual, Film Roundup Roundup is up to date with 21 new recommended motion pictures among the ones I saw in 2022. My top ten for the year:

  1. Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)
  2. Local Hero (1983)
  3. L.A. Story (1991)
  4. Glass Onion (2022)
  5. Roxanne (1987)
  6. The Lost City (2022)
  7. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)
  8. The Afterlight (2021)
  9. Stalag 17 (1953)
  10. WarGames (1983)


The Crummy.com Game Of the Year is I Was A Teenage Exocolonist. Other games I enjoyed in 2022 include ZERO Sievert, The Barnacle Goose Experiment, and Vampire Survivors. Of our daily games, the ones I most look forward to playing every day are Framed and Artle.

My accomplishments

Ugh, don't ask me about The Constellation Speedrun right now. It will be done eventually. I am working on it today, and this blog post is but a procrastination measure. 2022 saw publication of four of my short stories (see previous post) and I finished three more: "Or Current Resident", "A Place for Monsters", and "Expert Witness". I also wrote two Yuletide fics. Not what I'd hoped, but not too bad.
