Thursday ramblings

3 Jan

Sorry for nary a post until now, late Thursday afternoon.

I’ve debated many a blog topic today and nothing particularly amazing has come up. OK – I almost wrote one very snarky blog about snarky music critics, and then decided against it. Karma and such, you know.

These two things have entertained me lately:

  • Think your mp3s sound terrific? Think again. This interesting piece from Rolling Stone tells you why the sound of music is getting worse.
  • Also from RS, check out the top 25 videos of the year based on a reader poll. I highly suggest the videos by Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Bat for Lashes, LCD Soundsystem, Mute Math, The White Stripes, Foo Fighters, Spoon and Kanye West.

Another thing that’s entertained me lately, and this will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, is season three of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” We all know I’m a Buffy fanatic. But lately I’ve been taking my sweet time with season 3. I love soo many things about this season: new characters like Wesley and Anya,the return of Spike, and best of all, The Mayor. Possibly the best Buffy villain ever. Disc five of the season set is the best, because it includes the fabulous episodes “Doppelgangland,” “Enemies,” “Earshot” and “Chosen.”

Although season 2 has a handful of less-than-stellar episodes, it’ll always be tops. But season three is super sweet.

Enjoy late season 3 clippage.
