Those To Come
Since everyone’s going to be talking about it for the next while, I’ll get it out of the way early – Pitchfork has posted the first portion of their “with the benefit of hindsight” Best Albums of the 90s list. Compare and contrast their choices with the original list, compiled right at the close of the 90s. It’s interesting to see what records they feel have held up over the intervening years and which ones have proven to be lacking in shelf life. I actually had 43 of the original choices, but it looks like PF have ve developed a much greater fondness for hip-hop since then so I don’t expect that to last. So far, 14 of 40.
Freakgirl went to see the Tell Us The Truth tour in New York City this weekend and took pictures. Dig the slimmed down Steve Earle. I think he looks like a schoolteacher, Kyle thinks he looks like a pedophile. But Kyle is a sick puppy.
Time has compiled a list of their 25 recommended graphic novels from the last 25 years. A very grown-up list. I don’t know about calling The Dark Knight Returns a “black comedy version”, though.
I fixed the latch on my discman (It broke last month). Yay, me.
