The end of the calendar year is a time to look back on what was, to resolve to do even better moving forward... and to document your best nine Instagram photos and post them all in a grid, while humble-bragging about the total amount of likes you've received that year.
The latter phenomenon got me wondering what KQED Pop's best nine would be, so without further ado, here's what you all loved this year:
We asked San Franciscans how they would spend a perfect day in the city, and they shared which neighborhood walks, museums, restaurants, bars, and shops are their personal musts.
Due to the space-time continuum and physics and stuff, we will all wake up one day and something will alert us to a distressing bit of news: we are old. Maybe it's finding that first white hair, or changing your bedtime to 10pm, or not being able to drink without a hangover. Maybe it's a post telling you that the Spice Girls' "Wannabe" is old enough to legally drink in this country.
