Here at Pop Reviews Now I do way more than review the newest singles and albums - I think, I explore and I learn. (LOL was that cheesy?) Seriously, as much as it's my portfolio and a place to put my thoughts, Pop Reviews Now is a learning experience for me. Over years I've learned to think critically and I've learned to take what I already know and apply it to a completely new field. These specials served as my introduction to certain things I wanted and still want to pursue in the near or distant future - a series of posts, sometimes stretching a few months' worth, with similar characteristics and one binding factor. The things I've learned with these posts have been put to use on my regular reviews and other ramblings here on PRN - it's safe to say that they're part of my writing foundations.

Below are all the specials and posts, indexed and linked for your convenience. Please note that "Best of" lists and series' are not included on this list.
