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.

Let Them Sing It For You. It’s easier if you just go there and try it than for me to try and explain it. Link from Donewaiting.

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.

    According to <a href="http://…/ article</a>, <a href="http://…/ has offered to host’s 5 terabyte collection of tunes, forever, for free. Wheeeeeee! Maybe we don’t have to lose the first & largest collective music archive on the planet!

    Think 5 terabytes is a lot? adds 40 terabytes to their archive — each month.

    No HTML for you!

    That’s pretty cool, though.I just hope they do away with’s asinine registration system.

    I keep checking the comments hoping someone will defend my honour, but apparently that’s not going to happen.

    The remainder of the list has been leaked for those who might be curious (Chris Dahlen’s pitching a fit, ha!)

    For the record, I always thought of Kyle as more of a sick kitty.

    Another Monday treat…the full band rockin’ version of "Trogdor."

    Yeah, I didn’t quite understand the "black comedy" comment about Dark Knight either. I mean, there is some funny stuff in there – the mayor, for instance, and Alfred’s constant nagging.

    I was just happy that "The Golem’s Mighty Swing" was on the list – fantastic work.
