Frankly, it's been a shit of a year overall, with a few glorious moments of joy mixed in to try and pretend that it wasn't that bad, really.

Not fooling anyone, 2016.

And let's not pretend that 2017 looks rosier, with the US presidency going to a moron, Brexit still being Brexit (not that that means anything, but not that that's stopping them) and Australia still torturing refugees.

New Zealand and Canada, you are pretty much holding up the Anglosphere's reputation, and that with governments that in any sane period would be called tepidly conservative, but since they're traditionally so and not complete neoliberal morons, you're looking good!

At least we're all coming out of this with renewed resolve to fight against the rubbish. Here is to a year of standing up for decency, being kind where we can but not being quiet when people are dicks, helping where we can, doing what we can and getting each other through where we can.

And cats, dogs and David Bowie. Always and forever. Have the silliest, happiest song in hopes we'll be able to keep on smiling. Here's to a 2017 that makes up for the worst of 2016 for each and every one of us.
