Yes, the Taylor Swift album! Saw the Grammys in the callroom and we thought it was just the sordid airconlessness that was causing us to hallucinate, but we weren’t hallucinating, Fearless indeed is Album of the Year for 2009! The same award that American Idiot (2005), All That You Can’t Leave Behind (2001), and Marshall Mathers LP (2000) couldn’t get was grabbed with ease by TS! For a more reliable rant I have recently downloaded… the entire Fearless album! And saved it on my iPod! And even though I have a General Hatred for it I was once caught off-guard by Charcot-Marie-Tooth humming… You Belong With Me! Nefarious, nefarious! Immediately erased the entire album from iPod—it has no place alongside the deep introspective music of 98 degrees, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Aaliyah… er, I mean Lynyrd Skynyrd, Janis Joplin, Led Zep, and Dizzy Gillespie, yeah yeah I mean Lynyrd Skynyrd, Janis Joplin, Led Zep, and Dizzy Gillespie, I mean I’m cool, right?
Obviously the true Album of the Year for 2009 is none other than Relapse by Eminem! On my last iPod sync I’ve noted that I’ve played the song 3 A.M., about Eminem taking a bath in a bath tub full of his relatives’ blood and going on a killing spree in a hospital… 128 times! The best time to listen to the song is of course at 3 A.M., while someone is insisting that you do emergency clearance on a patient with… anal fistula! Because truly, you can scream all you want but that ain’t stopping me from chopping you up up!
Recently the song on major repeat in my player is the Our Lady Peace song All For You. It’s just so majorly amusing to humm “Jack Kerouac, Kekekerouac!” Yes, I find major amusement in these sorts of things.
