1 jan 2013, 13:31 av TheDarkOrbIt would seem that I haven't bothered to write a journal entry since my last "best of" which I posted exactly a year ago today. How the time flies.
Skinny Puppy has been in my top three artists since I joined last.fm in late 2006. Like Nine Inch Nails though, I haven't been listening to their music as much as I used to and when I do it tends to be in spurts; often triggered by hearing a particular song when I have my media player on shuffle. However, I finally got around to picking up their most recent (2011) release hanDover in July which triggered a landslide of scrobbles. Interestingly, hanDover only came in at 11 on the album charts which goes to show when I listen to Skinny Puppy I listen to random pieces of their body of work which stretches over almost thirty years. Skinny Puppy just barely held onto the top spot with Crystal Castles being only four scrobbles behind them. Crystal Castles is one of my favorite bands but they have had the unfortunate habit of releasing music the same year as better releases. …

The 83rd Academy Awards honored the best films of 2010.
Oh well, I think something quite quintessential went wrong this year AGAIN, considering that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (respectively the "representative" judges) nominated - AND AWARDED - one of the most boring filmscores I ever listened to, written for one of the most boring movies I ever watched. And considering that one of the most gorgeous filmscores was nominated as well but has been ignored…
The "winners" this year are Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross with their music for "The Social Network", the semi-biographical movie about the founding of the social networking website Facebook…
This is such a shame it's even disgusting! I wonder what could possibly be wrong with those judges (Who are they anyway?), that they award such a… thing… in the same year that John Powell's…

Rok 2010 zapamiętam muzycznie jako czas wybitnie udany, pokusiłbym się wręcz o stwierdzenie, że być może był to rok jeden z najlepszych w minionej dekadzie. Mimo, że obfitował również w muzyczne niewypały i to ze strony moich faworytów, na ten przykład: Massive Attack, Underworld, Trent Reznor, Gorillaz czy Daft Punk. …

I would have included at least one of Mark Lanegan's bootlegs (Live at Leeds, Melbourne, London) that he released this year if they were official releases. They are definitely some of the best things I've heard this year. Also the Queens of the Stone Age Rated R reissue - Rated RX deserves a special mention for being such a brilliant album.
A few that didn't quite make the list (some because I haven't really listened to them much more than once, or not properly / whatever):
B. Dolan - Fallen House Sunken City
