With thecreeper's blessing, I'm gonna run the list of theshizz 2016 releases. I'm gonna update it regularily, because I'm a dork and don't know what to do with my time.
This list is for releases with shizzies involved. Or at least bearing significant shizz interest. Only albums/EP/compilations. But you may post random songs and videos in the thread.
The quick way to get your release on the list is to post it in the thread.
