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 […]


2011 was a year and it had music. To be precise, it was a year with music. To be even more precise, it was a year of music. And that music was witnessed by me: the witness. Yes, folks, I witnessed that holy crime of musical merriment and am here to offer my testimony. This is […]


This year, we’re turning over a new leaf. We’re combining the Quarterly Reports. CK and TK’s opinions, boiled down into one easy-to-digest list with a couple hundred tags.

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 […]


My 2008 list and I get along well. We still do. It featured a few more obvious picks like Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, and Bon Iver and a few overlooked gems from The War on Drugs, Plants and Animals, and The Week that Was. It also featured a few 80s throwbacks in the […]
