I'm a bit of an Emeralds person.

This looks like the website for a boutique online shopping catalog filled with useless overpriced electronics. I feel like if I click the wrong link it'll lead me to a Gwyneth Paltrow branded juicer or a Pono with the Beatles discog preloaded. I kinda hate it.

"As the anonymous Etsy seller mentioned, most of them probably aren’t making much money anyway, and are just doing it for the fun of it." Fun? Music isn't about fun. And if these tchochke slinging flea market rejects want fun, tell em to go play in a ball pit. Music is for serious people with serious legal teams.

Again it was more of a quality thing. In that I'm not big on People or anything after Fall Be Kind. Not including Prospect Hummer feels wrong though.

February 4, 2015 on War On Drugs Frontman Speaks At Length About “Unhappy Old Dude” Mark Kozelek, Plans “A Lot Of Recording” Next Month
That was for purely subjective reasons. I was pretty underwhelmed when Monomania dropped and I'm still not really feeling it the way I feel everything on that list. Same reason I didn't include the first Lotus Plaza album. Also I cannot believe I forgot that Brian Eno put out Here Come the Warm Jets, Taking Tiger Mountain, Another Green World, and Discreet Music in a two year period (1974-5). That is fucking amazing.

I always assumed that its the young folks in my age group that are the target market for Apple products or their parents buying it for them, not the parents themselves. The Pono is being marketed to those parents. Who else is spending $400 on an MP3 player? I have a Sansa clip player with a microSD card that brings it's capacity to 60 GB. I use it in the pretty damn good sound system in my car and it sounds just fine to me. Same with my schmancy headphones. It also, mp3 player plus memory card, cost only $50. Pono is an overpriced scam being hawked by someone who is otherwise awesome at an audience with money to burn and nostalgia to indulge. It should come with a Rolling Stone subscription and some ED pills.

January 31, 2015 on It Sure Seems Like Neil Young’s Pono Player Is Bullshit
Pono exists to part baby boomers with their monies. It should be sold at Brookstone next to the $200 massage wand that totally isn't a vibrator.

Man late to the party again. Can I include EPs if they're just as good as their LP counterparts? Because if so the Deerhunter/Atlas Sound/Lotus Plaza axis was on an absurd roll from 2007-12: 2007 - Cryptograms 2008 - Fluorescent Grey 2008 - Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel 2008 - Microcastle/Weird Era Continued 2009 - Rainwater Cassette Exchange 2009 - Logos 2010 - Halcyon Digest 2011 - Parallax 2012 - Spooky Action At a Distance As far as short bursts go I've got three: Iggy Pop 1977: The Idiot AND Lust for Life King Crimson 73-74: Larks' Tongues in Aspic Starless and Bible Black Red Animal Collective 03-05 2003 Here Comes the Indian 2004 Sung Tongs 2005 Feels
