Year in consumables: 2010 music

But, you are saying to yourself the year is 2012 when this was posted, so what the deuce? (Yes, you, that one person reading this… which is the same person that wrote it, but several years in the future reading it.) Well, to say you were lazy about writing anything for a long time would be an understatement. Good for you that you were bored doing laundry one day and decided to crank out a couple lists. Because you like lists. Lists make you feel better.

So, here is a list for 2010 and the one for 2011 will soon follow. So look for that in 2014. Or so.

Good thing you half wrote this list in the summer of 2010 or you’d really be starting from nowhere. Continue reading »

Year in consumables: 2010 music (so far)

I can’t seem to come up with anything better than (so far) in the title for these half-year-ish posts. “To date” seems so starchy or vanilla or something. And, that is soooo not what 2010 has been so far in the musics. So many good albums have already dropped and I definitely need to do this list so I can keep up my thoughts. I am pretty sure the end of the year list of the Top 10 is going to be brutal to pull together. At least that is how it feels. Time will tell.

As for now, no ranking anything. Just going to throw out what has been great and maybe tack on a list of the rest as to make my follow-up easier to write. That end of the year follow up that is sure to drop in the March or April timeframe…

Year in consumables: 2008 music

Viva la Vida Prospekt's March

Here it is, the last post in the series (games, movies) for the year and the one that no one cares about. Okay, maybe a couple friends on Facebook will care. Maybe.

So, this one works pretty much like all the others in that I write about what I consumed this past year. That said, this one does have a wrinkle. I also manage individual Top Ten lists in the Audio section of the site and these are strict to the album release year. As part of the exercise leading up to writing this post I finally went ahead and updated that lonely list for 2006 and added previously promised... Continue reading »

Ill communication

I just listened to Ill Communication on my way home from work tonight. I left at 9.00p. I realized that it would be a great title for a blog post, so…

I was at work for the second night in a row until 9p, so that’s ill. I have gone just over a month without posting, so that’s ill. If I went a calendar month without a post, that would be ill… therefore, here’s your fluff piece to put a stop to that.

Seriously though, I intimated in the last real post that I’d fill in blanks later, so I guess this is it. I think that blogging during the summer can be a bit tough when you don’t have some regular topic to shout about. I definitely have never had that, so it is here and there. Well, weekends are straight out because the last thing I want is to be in front of a keyboard on a weekend. Weeknights have also been straight out because I have been getting home late most nights and since those are due to work, I have had enough of the keyboard for a day. When not, I want to spend it on the couch in front of the 360 for a game or catch up on su... Continue reading »
