The Grammys are widely known as music’s “biggest night”. A highly coveted event that brings together some of music’s biggest names for a massive red carpet, showcasing incredible looks and performances, all in one night. With the 64th annual Grammy nominations recently announced, it got me thinking about just how much interest we put into this organization. The Grammy Awards appear to always be an exciting time.

Respectively, they represent the concepts of good and evil on a theoretical moral compass that society has deemed agreeable. Danganronpa, a multimedia franchise created by Kazutaka Kodaka and developed by Spike Chunsoft Inc., utilizes these ideas as its prevalent themes, serving as the basis for the plotline of this story.

In light of Supernatural’s soon-to-be-ending two month hiatus from season 15, it seems ample time to talk about the episodes that have been released. 11 out of the 20 painfully beautiful (emphasis on the painful) episodes have been handed out to the greedy fingers of fans, and each and every single one of them have been dutifully ripped apart by the millions of people who still watch the show.
