If you’re reading this post it means one of two things, either the Mayan prophecies were flat out wrong, or they simply didn’t anticipate that my contribution to CKTK’s Top 10-A-Palooza would save all mankind. As with any near-death experience, 2012 has moved us to reflect. We gaze deeply into ourselves… and by that I […]


WOW. 2012, am I right? This year was an especially difficult one for us top album listers because there were so many great albums released. It’s a good problem to have – every Tuesday, I’d look at the list of new album releases, and it was like those lists were saying, “Happy Birthday, Dude.” On […]


One week ago today, I still had no idea what my #1 album of the year would be. There were just too many good releases to sort through. In fact, it wasn’t until a few days ago that I forced myself to finally, ultimately come to a decison based on the question: “Which of my […]


The music industry is a battlefield. I realize that’s an easy metaphor to pull out of your back pocket, but it’s more true than ever. However, it’s no longer the sort of battlefield where two opposing armies walk toward each other until they are close enough to swing swords. No, this battlefield is the kind […]


As you may have noticed last week, CK got tipsy on typing with his Sasquatch Saturday Recap. He will continue these frisky frollicks into the future, but for now, you’re stuck with Tk’s Sasquatch Squawkin’.

Read part I here and part II here. 10    The National – Boxer (2007) 9    Taking Back Sunday – Tell All Your Friends (2002) 8    Dirty Projectors – Bitte Orca (2009) […]


Every year since 2006, I’ve been making a “Best Of” mix at the end of the year to give to friends and family members around the holidays. This year, I was not able to see most of my friends, so I decided to make the playlist and stick it online instead. So, here we are! […]


It’s here! It’s here! It’s the Top Ten Albums of 2009 list, something that makes me almost as excited as this video does. For this year’s list, I followed TK’s lead and posted a link to each album on lala.com. That way, you can listen to each album in its entirety and decide for yourself. […]


Alas, after a whole lot of this and a little bit of that, my 2009 list is ready to go. I’ll start by saying, yes, I do feel bad for the poor artists who are releasing albums this Tuesday, the 29th of December. But no, I don’t feel quite bad enough to wait until January […]
