    1. Paul Simon - Hearts & Bones 2. Cheap Trick - Next Position Please 3. The Police - Synchronicity Not a lot of all time faves in 1983, although Hearts & Bones and Next Position Please are two very overlooked classics. A ton of albums I do love or love some songs from… Cyndi Lauper - She’s So Unusual Tears For Fears - The Hurting Marshall Crenshaw - Field Day REM - Murmur Big Country - The Crossing (is this overlooked??? Its so good) Echo & The Bunnymen - Porcupine Wipers - On The Edge Minutemen - What Makes A Man Start Fires (bob dylan wrote propaganda songs yasssss) Ramones - Subterranean Jungle Violent Femmes David Bowie - Let’s Dance Huey Lewis - Sports (really love it) Stevie Nicks - The Wild Heart Brian Eno - Apollo Kinks - State Of Confusion John Mellencamp - Uh Huh I don’t love the whole album but Bark At The Moon is like the most fun riff ever to play

    "AOC was a fraud from day one" I don't even have to read anything after that to know whatever it says is probably dumb

    Great backing band. it’s a really cool sounding record, too much reverb and (bad) compression for my taste, but the outtakes reveal a killer recording underneath… [MEDIA] For my money its one of his weaker 80’s records, but that says more about how mostly great his output was in this decade

    Oh shit, I need to make my picks. People in here will appreciate, though: picked up used copies of Exile on Main St, Purple Rain, Hard Promises, and 52nd Street at the record store for less than $50 out the door today.

    If you love the Springsteen sound enough to enjoy a calorie-free rip-off, the Eddie and the Cruisers soundtrack by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band is really enjoyable.

    Trying to put a woman or a person of color in the role is just a way to try and minimize the very sexist and racist history of the character and the franchise.

    Rollin into 83 with 2 heavies I haven’t listened to in a while, The Hurting seemed like a good choice. It’s right up there with Songs From The Big Chair. To call it one of the great synth pop albums is a disservice to how phenomenal the writing is. Totally stacked songs that speak far beyond their arrangements. The Beatles worship that’s loud and proud on Seeds Of Love is already here. And the production is amazing. High Land Hard Rain is the only Aztec Camera I’ve listened to a lot and I’m not sure why. It’s a great record, and totally insane that he was a teenager. Oblivious, The Boy Wonders, Walk Out On Winter, Pillar To Post, Down The Dip…hits!

    Peacing out on 82 with 2 bangers; Big Science by Laurie Anderson blew me away. It’s unusual music; detatched and wry and abstract, but warmly. I can’t wait to hear this 100 more times And English Settlement, which is the 2nd best XTC album and one of the best albums ever. It’s the one where they toss the bag of tricks and let the music flow as it may, which winds up much deeper and memorable

    When McDonalds Came to Denmark – Matt Bruenig Dot Com “In late 1988 and early 1989, the unions decided enough was enough and called sympathy strikes in adjacent industries in order to cripple McDonalds operations. Sixteen different sector unions participated in the sympathy strikes. Dockworkers refused to unload containers that had McDonalds equipment in it. Printers refused to supply printed materials to the stores, such as menus and cups. Construction workers refused to build McDonalds stores and even stopped construction on a store that was already in progress but not yet complete. The typographers union refused to place McDonalds advertisements in publications, which eliminated the company’s print advertisement presence. Truckers refused to deliver food and beer to McDonalds. Food and beverage workers that worked at facilities that prepared food for the stores refused to work on McDonalds products. In addition to wreaking havoc on McDonalds supply chains, the unions engaged in picketing and leaflet campaigns in front of McDonalds locations, urging consumers to boycott the company.” Cool story here. This is the only way to really change stuff.

    1. Sparks - Angst In My Pants 2. Michael Jackson - Thriller 3. Descendents - Milo Goes To College Angst In My Pants is one of my favorite albums ever. My favorite Ron lyrics too, some of these songs are kinda sad but so irreverent and funny, and others are just really mischevious Some of my favorite lines: All of Angst In My Pants All of I Predict, which still makes me laugh out loud “Fog matters to you and me But it can't touch Sherlock Holmes Dogs bark and he knows their breed And knows where they went last night Knows their masters too” The “fish, a goldfish!” part in Mickey Mouse Mostly I love the misty breezy mood of Instant Weight Loss buts it’s also a really funny song about having sex “Now I've got a hobby, I collect frozen pizzas Check out my pizzas”
