If you’re reading this, it’s already too late. You’ve missed your chance to see the videos that made up Unus Annus. Unus Annus was a YouTube project started by Mark “Markiplier” Fischbach and Ethan “CrankGameplays” Nestor. The idea was to upload a video every single day starting Nov. 15, 2019, and delete the channel after the full year.

An idea that seems so simple on the surface became something much bigger than the sum of its parts.

Joe Biden is now president-elect, after he passed the 270 electoral vote threshold from winning Pennsylvania on November 7th. The race had been close the first few days following election day, with Biden gradually expanding his lead later in the week. A record number of Americans cast their vote this year, with an increase in turnout across party lines. Coupled with the devastating handling of the COVID-19 crisis by the Trump administration, one would think Biden and other Democrats would have won in a landslide. But they did not.

Over my ten years of living in the Ypsilanti area, I've been to Sidetrack Bar & Grill many times. Every single time I've been pleased with their food and drinks, and I must also say that they make the best club sandwich that I've ever had. Huge enough to eat in more than one serving and the bacon is perfectly cooked and thick cut.

One of the greatest things about the miniseries is the soundtrack, which was performed by The Blasting Company.
