    I feel like I haven’t composed a Top Ten list for quite some time. Ever since I gave up on a regular posting schedule my list production has faltered. If my current work/social calendar holds I should have time to post weekly Top Ten lists throughout the month of December. You know, like in the old days. The best deaths of the year, the best beers, […]

    Hello friends, my old darkness. Are you all gearing up for your July 4th weekend? I know I am. For the first time…ever–I think–I am going to have a four-day weekend. This is how adulthood feels, huh? At 33 years old, it’s about time I experience it (or something like it). In lieu of a mix tape today I’m going to share tracks from what […]

And I am always looking for something new and exciting. Yes, I know we all love queueing up Metal Machine Music or Henry Flynt’s Back Porch Hillbilly Blues Volume II in those times of need. But there’s also something refreshing about new […]

    Hey everyone. The new year is ending. I posted my Top 100 albums of the year list. It was different than most other lists on the web because, surprise surprise, this is a website where I get to express my opinions, not those of the rest of the population. So far the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Thanks for the tweets and emails and […]
