2 jan 2013, 07:49 av shug94I love the number 31. This is because my favourite NBA basketball player of all time - Reggie Miller - wore it.
I logged onto last.fm just after midnight ticked over from 2012 into 2013 and I opened up all of my charts for the previous 12 months. I want to present them, but I don't want to give you information overload.
Combine these two little snippets of information and it becomes obvious what I must do; present my top 31 most played Albums, Artists and Tracks of 2012.
I may also add some commentary here and there.
Note well that this is not my subjective ranked favourite stuff that was released in 2012, but rather just the raw number of listens (of stuff from all time periods) that I scrobbled.
New releases are tagged with *NEW*.
Bands I saw live (in 2012) are tagged with *SAW*
1. Jack White – Blunderbuss (137 plays) - *NEW*
2. The Shins – Port of Morrow (132 plays) - *NEW*
3. Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls (126 plays) - *NEW*
31 dec 2012, 23:11 av beefigurskWell, since one of the only two things I give a serious shit about is music, I feel it my duty to write up a blog on my scrobbles for the entire spectrum of no one to read and let my thoughts float out in the netherspaces of the interwebs.
I can't say it's been any sort of "epic" year for me musically, because I would say that every year like a broken record. It was a year and much was discovered and loved and cherished. I am zehr thankful for the catalogue of artists I have discovered this year through radio, Pandora at work and sexy scrobble friends. This list includes Passion Pit, Starfucker, Pinback, Gotye, Of Monsters and Men, We Are Scientists, The Temper Trap, Japandroids, The Dandy Warhols, Strange Talk, Cut Copy, The Silent Comedy, Spoon, M83, The Gaslight Anthem, and the single most important one to me, Modest Mouse.
Good lord of fuck, I was a complete moron. Pretty sure everyone knows who Modest Mouse is, no thanks to Float On all those years ago, and if not the name of the band or track, you knew the tune. …

"We fell in love,
or rather I did,
she gave me a shove,
into a pit unrequited.
I suppose it's not fit,
my mental health,
but at least I have this pit,
all to myself."
*strum strum, strum strum strum strum strum*
So here we are, another year gone by. Some people sitting in the corner rubbing vaseline on their naked bodies, yelling,
"THIS WAS THE BEST YEAR FOR MUSIC, EVER!"
and some people sitting on the edge of a skyscraper, rubbing vaseline on their naked bodies, yelling,
"THIS WAS THE WORST YEAR FOR MUSIC, EVER!"
And then there's me, sitting on top of our piano with a crappy 90s iBook yelling,
"THERE ARE ONLY SO MANY WAYS TO WRITE 'NAZI CIRCLE-JERK!' WHERE'S MY VASELINE!?!"
Music, and music journalism, never really changes.
(cough cough cough cough, right? Someone get me a glass of water)
