Adam Riff™'s 2022 retrospective festivities conclude with a triptych of playlists.

First, Everything From the Year All at Once, my 19th year-end audio pastiche:

cover art by our mate Jon Wilcox

I finally ditched skits and custom tracks in order to share what I curated in its entirety outside of Adam Riff™ dot com. While a tad less sui generis, I think it still slaps.

(Fleishman Is in Trouble, S01E07)
  • "Anyone who has ever been to just one session of couples therapy could tell you that beyond your point of view lies an abyss with a bubbling cauldron of fire, and that just beyond that abyss lies your spouse's point of view." (Fleishman Is in Trouble, S01E07)

  • "Did you turn the air-conditioning back on?"
    "No, I didn't touch it."
    "Well, then why can I feel air blowing around?"

  • "You feel me?"
    "I feel you. Can I say that?" (Mythic Quest, S03E08)

How did we all get this way? How do we all get put on this trajectory where we all ended up with the same boring life, you know? I miss longing. I miss…desire. And it's not Adam. Adam is great, okay? Like, Adam's the best case scenario in a very flawed system." (Fleishman Is in Trouble, S01E06)
  • "I used to blow smoke on him so his wife would know where he'd been. I didn't realize that the real power I had was that I had no obligations. I could do whatever the hell I wanted. How was I supposed to know that, one day, in seeking the safety of a grown-up life, I would lose that power? I am 41 now. I can't believe how briefly I held that power. I can't believe how briefly I held it and how quickly I gave it away.
