Another year, another top 10 list. The biggest change in the way I experienced music since 2009 is the death of lala.com. Fortunately, I was still able to find places online to listen to most albums that I was curious about. The public library has also become my friend. Unfortunately, that means I won’t have […]


I have been having in-excess much festivity with thesaurus.com and the fruition may be an entry that is strenuous to read. A few 24 hour periods ago, CK gave us Fatal Omissions. In just a moment, I will unveil my Deathly Noninclusions for 2010 in music. Below you will find the following categories: Song of […]


Here we go again! It’s now officially halfway through the year 2010. TK is busy hiking the Pacific Coast Trail, so I’m holding down CKTK duties while he’s gone.

Within these first 3 songs, the musicians attempt to declare the album […]


Here it is, folks: My report on the first quarter of 2010. It’s been a solid year so far. This list is presented with minimal commentary; just know that you’ll see many of these records in my “Best of 2010” post nine months from now. But you don’t have to take my word for it… […]


I pity the poor suckers who unleashed their “Albums of the Decade” lists before midnight on January 1st, 2010, because they ALL MISSED THIS ONE! This album (the one that I linked with pink ink before the exclamation point and after the word “they”) did MORE than just convert me to Epistemological Luddism–it also reminded […]
