It's about time

Wow. I really do let this thing go, don't I? I'd blame it on my new job, or I'd blame it on being new to New York and wanting to go out and do things other than sit and type in a blog, but that's probably not true. What's more likely is that I'm lazy. And I like xbox.

In the time since I last made an album entry, I've seen Menomena, TV on the Radio, The Long Winters and Grizzly Bear live, and I haven't said a thing about it here. And I've acquired numerous albums that I've made no mention of. I need a swift kick in the ass.

So, I'm climbing back on the horse. I've noticed that one thing that slows me down with this is my propensity to write long-winded entries about albums. I'm changing that. Who needs it anyway? Since I buy so many, it's hard to keep up. So, instead, I'm going to just write quick little blurbs and a number of albums, probably two or three at a time. That's an easier way for me, and probably a bit more digestible in terms of reading.

But before I do that, I'm going to do a list, my list, of favorite albums of the year. I wont' call it "the top..." or "best of..." or anything like that. Just a list of albums that made me think my money was well spent. Maybe I'll title it my "The Best $150 I Spent On Music This Year" list.

Ha! Yes, if anyone tried to sell me on/listen to a Nickelback album, they would indeed have to get the fuck out of my car. Then again, I don't own a car...but you know what i'm sayin.

I want your thoughts on a few things, namely the Annuals.

You may just be reading about Annuals in my "$150 List" that I'm widdling down right now. Be He Me is an excellent album.

As for The Look, well, they rock.
