Questions inspired by stuff I don’t get.

Which of your computer activities would you livestream if there were a way to make some money doing it?
  2. EDM (electronic dance music) is usually performed by DJs on stage in front of audiences, playing tracks they’ve mixed, right off their laptops.

  3. What’s a good Adele song, and why is Adele so popular?
  4. The Walking Dead?
