a new month, a new game

i'm trying to keep up with everyone else's writing enthusiasm, so this month i'm going to be writing music reviews. i don't know if it will be one a day, but there will be a lot of them, hopefully. maybe. i'm tired of just watching the Matrix triliogy and wishing that Keaneu (or however the hell you spell it) Reeves was dead. the movie just seems like the ultimate fuck you to poor people:

look at how much money and time and energy we can spend making two (because the first is actually kind of cool) giant piles of cinematic, slow-motion, bullet-time bullshit. they might have well have just video taped a hobo taking a crap and then showed it in bullet-time for 3 hours, ending it with TO BE CONCLUDED. and then make the crap go so slow we can see water droplets breaking around it and steam lines rising into the air like ribbons of disappointment.

ANYWAY,

some of the CDs I'm going to review:

Beirut - The Flying Club Cup
Okkervil River - The Stage Names
Bishop Allen - The Broken String
Liars - Liars
M.I.A. - Kala
Jens Lekman - Night Falls Over Kortedala
Stars - In Our Bedroom After The War
Gram Parsons - Grievous Angel
Mirah - Share This Place
Holy Fuck - Holy Fuck (ep)
Tegan and Sara - The Con
Caribou - Andorra
Kevin Drew - Spirit If
Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass
Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover

essentially any new i think is really good, or really bad, or old music i want write about. i imagine there might be music related annicdotes as well. fingers crossed!

are there any CDs i should review/listen to, that i don't have the list?

do i need more constraints?

GIVE ME CONSTRAINTS ON HOW TO WRITE THESE REVIEWS. I DON'T WANT THEM TO BE BORING AND THE SAME AS EVERYTHING ELSE.

  1. i like the idea of reviewing some older stuff. and i still think you should review some shows.

    constraints...yes, i think they would be helpful. no, i have no idea what they should be. i'll think on it.

  2. 1.) i might make counter-reviews.

    2.) you spelled anecdotes wrong.

    3.) bring it.

    4.) in a little over 24 hours we will be in portland for musicfest. maybe i will do concert reviews.

    5.) maybe we can co-write concert reviews.
