My favorite albums of 2014

Seems like this post comes later every year. This year, my excuse is my other site I’ve been spending too much time on. And to be honest, I haven’t been that hugely excited about much this year. There are a lot of albums I like, but nothing that really jumps out as number 1 material. So…

2013, Year of the Doglion

These things keep coming later every year, don’t they? I’ve never been the most motivated writer (at least since I was in 8th grade and wrote a 30-page long fantasy short story and thought for a while that I was the best writer ever) and it just seems to come harder and harder every year. The…

A few 2013 songs to tide you over

I am way late with my 2013 album review, which is mostly because I’ve been too lazy to write it up and only partly because the albums that were my favorite as of 12/31/2013 are maybe not my favorites anymore 2 1/2 weeks later. But I’m getting it together, and I’m not changing my list…

No Reason, No Conscience, No Understanding

I’ve been threatening for years to make a non-metal Halloween mix, to contrast with the totally metal mix I made 5 years ago, “When churchyards yawn, and Hell itself breathes out,” which is completely excellent btw and you should listen to it too! Well I finally did it but I’ve been too damn lazy to…

My favorite albums of 2012

So here we are, a year later, 2 weeks into 2013 and well past time for me to post my Top 20 albums of 2012. A note on process: I choose these albums using a highly unscientific semi-random pseudo-bubblesort method, taking into account my initial impressions, whether they grow or fade on me, how I’m…

My favorite albums of 2011

It’s well into 2012, and I have been too lazy on this, but I’m finally ready to post my best of 2011 mix. Hoo-ray? Hoo-cares? Who knows? but it’s something I’ve been doing every year for the past several and I enjoy it. I hope you enjoy it too, and what the hell, free music,…

IRON DJ Graduation edition: 1988

It’s IRON DJ time again! Which means that a bunch of people are going to upload themed mixes and try to compete with me! Unfortunately for them, not only do I have unbeatable taste in music, but this time around I even have the IRON DJ theme going for me: GRADUATION YEAR. The idea is…

Jim’s favorite albums of 2010 (with MMX technology!)

2010 was a milestone year–among other things, personally, it was the year my 13 year old son grew to be taller than me, which is a reminder of mortality if anything is (I mean I have to crane my neck to yell at the boy now! crazy!)–and it was a great year for music too.…

Music Talk: 22 March

This is a post from Aaron’s Radio Gen1us site, archived here. The following is the text of his original post. (Note: The original image is lost in the mists of the internet so I have used what I thought would be an appropriate substitute) Yes, it’s over a month old. It’s been a busy month.…

Ska Talk – 08 Mar

This is a post from Aaron’s Radio Gen1us site, archived here. The following is the text of his original post. We are talking and playing a lot of Ska today, with recent shows on our minds by Fishbone, The English Beat and The Aquabats (with Mustard Plug). Desmond Dekker — Get Up Edina — 2:40…
