Top 10/Bottom 3: September 2011

Top 10

  1. Grendel Drone Commander
  2. Louie
  3. Leyland Kirby’s Eager to tear apart the Stars
  4. Into the Labyrinth
  5. The return of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  6. Presonus Firestudio Pro
  7. Carne asada
  8. The Clock of the Long Now
  9. Raxxess rack for my music equipment
  10. A long weekend of sitting on my ass watching TV

Bottom 3

  1. The horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE Doctor Who specials running on BBC America featuring US celebrities narrating and commenting on Doctor Who (a la I Love the 80s, etc…).  It’s blatantly obvious that these idiots couldn’t name a doctor other than Matt Smith.  I love Doctor Who, but those specials make me want to hate it.  Way to go, BBC America–you’re ruining the only hit you have.
  2. The new Amy-narrated opening to this season of Doctor Who that foregrounds the show as about THIS doctor and these companions in the exact way those horrible specials do.  I wonder if they’re showing that opening in the UK.  Please FSM, tell me no!
  3. Republicans (of course)

Top 10/Bottom 3: June 2010

The Roadhouse--Longplayer

Top 10

  1. iPad (software still iffy but device is amazing.  Watching Netflix in my office between classes is awesome)
  2. M.I.A. (new album should be interesting)
  3. Sly and the Family Stone’s Fresh (have been listening to this a lot–forgot how awesome it is)
  4. Wind (hey, in the desert, when the wind goes away, the heat arrives–and stays)
  5. Vernor Vinge’s A Deepness in the Sky (even better 2nd time around)
  6. Emeralds, Does It Look Like I’m Here?
  7. Mutek 2010 (damn–I’ve been wanting to go to this for 10 years, and I haven’t made it yet.  Perhaps next year…)

  9. Steak (mmmmm)
  10. John Scalzi’s Whatever

  3. Oil

Top 10

  1. Angels baseball–doing well despite the injuries/tragedies of this season.
  2. Mapsadasical–my latest source for excellent music recommendations (and some nifty photos to boot)
  3. iPhone 3GS–32 GB storage space means waaaaaay more music in my pocket at all times.  Plus it’s faster and the video camera is excellent!

  5. Finnegans Wake
  6. Pizza Chalet
  7. Sleep
  8. New Doctor Who
  9. Feedly
  10. Adult Swim in all its glory (from Squidbillies to Venture Brothers to everything else–awesome weirdness galore)

Bottom 3

  1. Summer heat (it’s 111 today in El Centro, and it’s not even July 4.  August is usually the hot month)
  2. Republicans
  3. TV networks that spend more than 5 minutes on Michael Jackson’s death

One response so far

Yes, this is the new Inkbottle, now hosted by WordPress (that is, by me, since WordPress runs on my own server).  Take a look around and tell me what you think!
