Last year I attempted year-end lists for the first time, with only partial success.
I managed Top 5 Singles Of Shamelessness, 9 Songs To Thank MP3 Blogs For, and my top 5 films, but my Six Songs I Really Liked In 2004 But Which Weren’t On Albums In My Albums List (Forthcoming, Seriously!) For Said Year And Which I Haven’t Already Written About list only appeared in May (no, I did NOT spend all those months just typing out that title) and although I wrote a substantial amount of my Top 10 Albums list I never finished it.
This year things are looking tough. I could perhaps manage the Singles Of Shamelessness, but I’m really hard-pressed to pick anything worthy of inhabiting the same list as Incomplete. Mp3 blogs tend to get sidelined by having to spend hours on an office computer. And lastly, new releases probably made up only about 40% of the music I was listening to, sometimes from lack of access and other times from getting stuck in, say, Emmylou Harris’s Wrecking Ball and not leaving for weeks.
Well, this is what I’m going to try this time: I’m going to start from the albums list, which I left till the end last year because it was the hardest and therefore remained IN-COM-PLEEEEETE…and frankly, I don’t know if I can even manage anything else, so we’ll leave it at that!
So there’s lots of music geekery coming up, folks. I bet you never thought of a time you’d miss a photo of a cock and balls sculpted in facial moisturizer, but there you go.
