  • Greatest Pop Albums (in progress)   1 week 6 days ago

    Maybe the Kinks. There's many 7's to add. This isn't really a list I focus on filling out as there are few 7.5+ albums. I just sort of add to it on the side from time to time.

  • Greatest Pop Albums (in progress)   1 week 6 days ago

    The Velvet Underground? The Beatles? The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society?

  • Greatest Albums Extended List [rated 7.8/10+] (in progress)   2 weeks 12 hours ago

    The lyrics are indeed compelling, but only because they aptly portray Mangum's overwhelming emotions and visions. It's possibly the most emotionally overwhelming/devastating/moving album in rock history (or Rock Bottom), that's why I've rated it so high. I'll say a bit more later.

  • Greatest Albums Extended List [rated 7.8/10+] (in progress)   2 weeks 13 hours ago

    Unless it is the lyrics (something which I have no interest in), I really don't get what is so good about Aeroplane. Musically, I feel it is mediocre. But that's just my opinion.

  • top 100 films   2 weeks 16 hours ago

    Only 4 or 5 good movies here. Keep working on it.

  • Popular Music Masterpieces : 60 Best Albums   2 weeks 18 hours ago

    Nice choices, but I have to ask: have you simply not heard the B-sides yet or you really think none of them deserve a spot?

    As for VU, I'm sure your choices off Loaded and/or Squeeze would be easy enough ;)

    Thanks, just fixed it. Dunno how I did that for a whole month :P

  • Every animated movie ever created (alphabetical)   2 weeks 2 days ago

    All right, help internet in remembering a REALLY old video.
    This video was a "collection" style, many small works on one tape. The art is grainy at best- so my guess on age is 70's or older. The audio is grating in places (especially the transition screen- a screen between shorts that has an old lacy-like design). Not golden books, not Disney. One final note: all shorts have little to absolutely no dialogue aside from a little singing or maybe a narrator.

    The shorts were (some, not all): Cinderella(wikipedia can't find this, so she may have had another name- but still cinder something); a short with an Indian and a girl (princess?) Indian (I THINK this was Hiawatha, but I'm not sure. He has some animal friends, though they are normal animals, he is just a good animal person);
    one with a fishing cat that sings "curiosity, merow, curiosity, merow, dah dah..." okay I forgot the last part, but I can hum it. He fishes up a bottle, is warned to not open it by an older cat but does anyways. Inside is smoke that materializes into a dragon and he has to fight it off so the dragon doesn't eat him, and eventually imprisons the dragon back in his bottle (a weeiirrddd dragon at that, like two heads and kinda dinosaur-ish and it changes shape. Is mostly red); one short is all music and its simply has a cat and a cuckoo clock, but its like a chase scene? The cat trying to destroy all the clocks, or the other way around?

    It may have others, but I don't remember them.

  • Top 10 Movies, Music & Miscellaneous Art of the Week (2014)   2 weeks 6 days ago

    Nice, I'll throw something up here about my view on Aeroplane soon which might shed some light on it -- whether it improves anyone's rating or not, I don't know. I'm a little disappointed by HM too -- not that an 8.2 isn't extraordinary -- but that it dropped so much after being a 9 for so long. Maybe it's just temporary and will make it's way back up there. Re: Meet The Residents, I'm starting to think it might be better than Not Available -- though maybe I just need to re-listen to that one too. I'm going to be re-listening to a lot of albums and making any necessary updates to my "greatest albums" and "songs/tracks" list.

  • Top 10 Movies, Music & Miscellaneous Art of the Week (2014)   2 weeks 6 days ago

    Very interesting developments. I'm a little disappointed that Hosianna Mantra got bumped down a few notches, and after re-listening to In the Aeroplane over the Sea a few times per your re-rating, I still don't really care for it. However, just the possibility of Meet the Residents getting a promotion excites me. I've been championing that album for years, and I love to see its genius revealed to others.

  • 25 Most Overrated Bands of All Time   2 weeks 6 days ago

    Come on this list is clearly just weak! Clearly just one persons
    "taste" in music! IMO weak! And what about all the untalented
    new shit? country Rap and bands like new kids poison white snake
    all pretty boy ( or girl) media driven bands? Just because bands
    have some hardcore fans doesn't make them over rated! For the MOST
    part this list can claim their own style or even own lyrics.. While others
    have no talent or steal others shit? Go on looks or sellout! Again obviously
    This list is very biased.... Where's Bon jovi or Jonas bros? But led zep, PF,
    and comments on the dead? Weak they lived for their fans man!
    Original artists like that can't be overrated!

  • Beatles singles ranked   3 weeks 4 hours ago

    I especially like that it ends so well: the last three tracks collectively just blow me away.

    I did, I think. I've only listened to some tracks on Anthology, like the two "new" Beatles tracks, the freakout tracks like The New Mary-Jane and the epic You Know My Name (that version should've been released, though the Let It Be B-side version is still awesome and one of my favourite Beatles tracks), and some other demos, mostly of songs that I like and am interested in.

    Lennon's vocal performance in Girl I found to be weak. I would have to re-listen though. How different would your versions of Hard Day's Night, For Sale and Help be by the way?

    My comprehensive 1962-1965 comp would have:
    1. I Saw Her Standing There
    2. There's A Place
    3. Twist And Shout
    4. She Loves You
    5. It Won't Be Long
    6. Don't Bother Me
    7. I Want To Hold Your Hand
    8. This Boy
    9. Can't Buy Me Love
    10. Slow Down
    11. A Hard Day's Night
    12. I Should Have Known Better
    13. And I Love Her
    14. I'll Be Back
    15. I Feel Fine
    16. She's A Woman
    17. No Reply
    18. I'm A Loser
    19. I'll Follow The Sun
    20. Eight Days A Week
    21. What You're Doing
    22. Ticket To Ride
    23. Help!
    24. I'm Down
    25. You're Going To Lose That Girl
    26. I've Just Seen A Face
    27. Yesterday
    28. We Can Work It Out
    29. Day Tripper
    30. Drive My Car
    31. Norwegian Wood
    32. You Won't See Me
    33. Nowhere Man
    34. I'm Looking Through You
    35. In My Life

  • Beatles singles ranked   3 weeks 19 hours ago

    I've had a lot of fun with the White Album since last week. Love how pleasing and easy it is on the ears and how ridiculously long and all-over-the-place it is! They should've made more albums like that. The lack of any sort of concept or unity works greatly for them. It's pretty much everything they do best, and LOTS of it. It might even appear on my Best Albums list sometime!

    Also re-listening to Sgt. Pepper these days. It's growing on me a little bit. By the way, I hope you've heard the rough version of Sgt. Pepper's title track on the Anthology compilation. It's just awesome.

    Your version of With the Beatles kicks ass! I would never omit Girl from Rubber Soul. Yet I think the horny inhalation sound Lennon makes everytime he sings the chorus is hilariously creepy.

    What would your single disc pre-Revolver compilation consist of?

  • Reading Log, 2014   3 weeks 2 days ago

    If you really liked the movie, I think you should at least give the book a chance. For me, the absurdist humor worked better on screen (things like the bratwurst phone and penis doorknob are just more effective as visual gags), but they're similar enough tonally that you shouldn't have vastly different reactions to the two. And there's a fair bit of stuff in the book that isn't in the film, so it'll be more than just a retread of what you've already seen. (Plus, if you do end up liking the book, there's also the sequel, This Book Is Full of Spiders.)
