I thought this might be a fun end of the year discussion. I'm sure some arguments will come from this, but let's keep it fun!

 

My Top 5 Albums of 2012

1) "Boys and Girls" by Alabama Shakes

2) "Blunderbuss" by Jack White

3) "Signs and Signifiers" by JD McPherson

4) "Some Nights" by Fun.

5) "Slipstream" by Bonnie Raitt

I definitely agree with "Signs and Signifiers".

Great album! Great artist!

Putting it at #3 was tough, but I think "Blunderbuss" and "Boys and Girls" edged it.

I've recently had it suggested to me to listen to Fiona Apple. Haven't listened to her since her debut.

Okay, it took a while and I had to go a little obscure but here it goes:

The Gaslight Anthem-Handwritten

JD McPherson-Signs & Signifiers

Dave Tucker- In Kind

David Byrne & St. Vincent-Love this Giant

Lee Rocker-Night Train to Memphis

These are in no particular order.

Some great albums already mentioned. I'd add:

Lucero - Women and Work

Japandroids - Celebration Rock

Nick Waterhouse - Time's All Gone

I tried to get into Nick Waterhouse. Hasn't caught my ear yet.

I'll give him a second go around.

The song that hooked me was Some Place - http://youtu.be/zwQxIOlm_xQ

Tried to put these in order but it didn't work, so NO PARTICULAR ORDER:

Mac Demarco 2

Julia Holter - Ekstasis

Ty Segall - Slaughterhouse

Kendrick Lamar - good kid maad city

Frank Ocean - Channel Orange

Also in there: Mount Eerie "Clear Moon/Ocean Roar," Death Grips' "No Love/Deep Web," Swans' "The Seer," and others

I've lost a lot of weight! How should I expect my life to change?

Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it. I'd like to lose about 20 more pounds if at all possible. I stopped eating as much. I took up cooking. As a 23-year-old bachelor, I can attest that those of my species don't eat the greatest. I set out to break that stereotype. I eat well, but I control what I put in the tank, so to speak. Being creative in my kitchen…See More

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More
