    Oh definitely. I could tolerate quite a bit more at 21 than at 27.

    And, as I said, there have been positive changes since then as well. Camping isn't a complete crapshoot anymore, the extra day is great, allowing ins and outs is a big bonus, the sound has gotten better every year, the Mojave and Gobi are no longer enclosed heat-sinks, there is more and better food, Newcastle, parking is nowhere near as difficult to get out of at the end of the night.

    Are these positive changes worth suffering through the Do Lab people? Arguable.

    I am definitely more aware of the bro factor now that I am older, but paradoxically it's also less of a big deal because I'm rarely at the same sets that particular contingent is also at.

    Here's a pretty cool video of Four Tet walking us through how he puts his live shows together:

    I saw them in '09 and they were great. Not a whole lot of stage presence - Tobacco sat down on the side of the stage, out of view of the audience and does his thing. But the band was really tight and the visuals were hilarious.

    It seems like not much has changed in four years except that Tobacco is now front and center. Great show though

    Of course not. It'd be a real shame if every beautiful and unique snowflake didn't find their voice and share their singular utopian vision with the rest of the horde.

    Not with that attitude you won't. Try to tamp down some of your inner angst and then force it back out your throat as a sort of demure, marriageable foie gras extrusion. We'll land you a good'un.

    Im gana go for a walk. I'm not sure but I'm pretty darn sure that what you said doesn't mean anything substantial and is designed only to confuse me even further probably only for your own sadistic amusement and hatred of heterosexual carpathians as you are both a racist and sexist who is out of control with dangerous ideas that should be considered by many experts in the international scene.

    I went to an event last night where this tape, "Daylight" by Pure Ground was playing. Really cool industrial/goth stuff that reminded me heavily of Joy Division. They're playing a show here in LA on the 12th and I'll probably go.

    50 Albums Everyone Needs to Own (1963-2013, one a year), according to Flavorwire.

    Lists like that are usually awful, but the author really nails it for the most part. Makes me want to go back and either visit or revisit a lot of those albums.

    Eh, I'd take Ege over Exile any day of the week. That's kind of a lazy criticism.

    If I point out the other thirty or so times he picks a hip album over the consensus year best, would it still be lazy?

    I'm not going to begrudge anyone their own taste, but the ostensible point of this exercise is to build a representative record collection, right?

    I don't think that's the point at all. He's just saying here are 50 albums of merit. He's right about 80% of the time give or take. I do wonder what happened to his testicles in the mid 80s though.

    I did notice something: after Radiohead and the internet, the whole idea of "consensus" albums stops making sense. Part of this may be that we don't have historical distance yet. I suspect most of it may simply be that tastes have fractured so much, and because the idea of the album itself increasingly means less and less on a wider cultural scale.

    It's a good list. You really put Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix above Bitte Orca, Merryweather Post Pavilion and Fever Ray?
