A preface, before the pretentiousness:
I sound overtly-fancy in this entire review, not only because this record's material is just so opaque that I think it needs this type of analysis and wording, but the record itself is also pretentious. For that, I do apologize. However, this was the hardest thing I've ever had to write. Over the course of two months, I've tried my hardest to collect and control my thoughts on this brilliantly fascinating experience. These have been difficult, gripping, ... read more

Last night, I awoke to my father screaming my name.

With a cup of mugwort tea and honey in hand, I read a chapter of House of Leaves before nodding off to sleep for the night…

My legs feel like they’re floating up, independent from the rest of my body. Slowly, gradually, chasing the ceiling to nowhere. Am I dreaming this feeling, or is something pulling them to the heavens? I will never know for sure. The next moment will stick with me forever.

My dad screams my name from the ... read more

“The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.” ~L.P. Hartley

Guess what? No, I still haven’t gotten over my obsession with the best ska band of all time, Streetlight Manifesto. And no, I still haven’t gotten my retainer to fit on my teeth, mostly because I haven’t worn the damn thing in roughly eight months. What I’m about to tell you, is totally mind-blowing. It’s something that not even the highest authorities in the world know ... read more

The same year, they released a covers record, which I ended up enjoying a bit. It seems to me that Weezer are becoming one of the most ... read more

The last time it rained in Phoenix was about 150 days ago.

I'm cooped up in my room, mug of smooth hot cocoa in hand, listening to Peter Gabriel's self-titled debut on vinyl, when all of a sudden, I hear the dreary dark smatterings of rain drops on my window. Pitter patter, pitter patter. I run downstairs and look out onto the street. Sure enough, the sky broke today, the petrichor sweeping through the damp air and sticking to the outside of the clear glass window.

Peter Gabriel. What an ... read more

Today is the 20th anniversary of The Caretaker's "A Stairway to the Stars".
It is also my two year anniversary of joining AOTY.

So, there's a single question I've been pondering over the past couple weeks. It hasn't been pondered in the heat of an existential crisis or fit of sadness, just something that I've been toiling with for a while. When it comes to the question at hand, I'm most certainly not the only person who thinks it, visualizes it, or dreams it. The entire human race, ... read more
