Evilchili's Album of the Year! (Long) 

@evilchili @djsundog This is a filthy hurtful lie. Flood is not 30 years old. That’s simply not possible. Please stop saying horrible untrue things.

TMBG released their brand new record, Flood, this day 30 years ago. Here is a free download of Flood Live in Australia (which they played backwards, because Australia):

Best of 2019 

Nicholas Was…

older than sin, and his beard could grow no whiter. He wanted to die.

The dwarfish natives of the Arctic caverns did not speak his language, but conversed in their own, twittering tongue, conducted incomprehensible rituals, when they were not actually working in the factories.

Once every year they forced him, sobbing and protesting, into Endless Night. During the journey he would stand near every child in the world, leave one of the dwarves’ invisible gifts by its bedside. The children slept, frozen into time.

He envied Prometheus and Loki, Sisyphus and Judas. His punishment was harsher.

Ho. Ho. Ho.

--Neil Gaiman

My first ever label released album is out today \o/ LOOK AT ME MOM I'M A REAL ARTIST PERSON NOW!

Current status: standing in the cold rain waiting on the 40, with Moonchild keeping me warm.

I haven't paid much attention to The Vinyl Factory, but I really should. Their 50 favourite albums of 2019 are about two thirds unknown to me and full of really interesting stuff. I'll be digging in.

I am formally disclosing my having entered into a long-term personal relationship with the band Superorganism. Please take whatever actions this notification requires.

spent the commute listening to Megan Thee Stallion and... i want to like her, I do. But if I hear one more Migos-sounding triplet I'm gonna barf. The bar is do low for rappers anymore.

You MUST play AI Dungeon 2, a text adventure game run by a neural net.

@nickwalton00 built it using @OpenAI's huge GPT-2-1.5B model, and it will respond reasonably to just about anything you try. Such as eating the moon.

Songs in my head at the moment:
- These Are The Daves I Know (Kids in the Hall)
- Chicken With Its Head Cut Off (Magnetic Fields)
- Fishing With John Theme Song (John Lurie)
- No Knows My Plan (TMBG)

Picking my album of the decade turned out to be pretty easy - There were some great albums I plonked my $$$ down for but the one that stands out above the others is VEKTOR - TERMINAL REDUX (2016). 74 Minute Thrash-Metal Sci-Fi opera concept album. Ambitious as hell and I love it.

@evilchili pulled my white 1987 Porsche off to the side of the road and paused my James Ferraro cassette just to say I disagree with this take.
