what i did instead of writing press releases and various other requested writing things. it was tough to narrow it down. big huge labs noted a 36 pic limit so I had to shave 10 artists off the list. i mean, andrew bird isn’t there and yet he and bon iver got me through a rough January. I had to pick and choose wisely. music has always defined times and places for me. i’ve listened to more music this year then i have in forever simply because i had a lot of time on my hands to do so. i wished i could say the same for reading and books but my attention span for reading was pretty awful this year. I spent 3 months in traction, taking a painfully long time reading ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemna’.

i sat at CTTP today thinking of what songs i listened to the most, songs i knew almost all the words to, and this is what i came up with. some of it is really random. this year sounds more mellow then i’ve ever been.

i’m still a bit tortured that i had to leave out andrew bird, lily allen, bruce springsteen, the mountain goats, friendly fires, the new pornographers, feist, lyrics born, anni rossi and paper route but i guess i can always figure out how to make a larger mosaic on my own without BHL’s limits.

but maybe that’s for later, when it’s not 5:00 AM.
