  1. just recently found torrents for james blake's early EPs. i like most of them better than his recent s/t album.
  2. hey guys, been a while. i'm back in south america now, about to go wwoof for a while in uruguay.decided since i'm of age now, to drop the adoption line in my sig. dont take it personal tim or brett.hope everyone is well, seems to have slowed down mightily in here.-jim
  3. madlib never ceases to amaze me. you would think someone who smokes that much weed could never release this much music.
  4. snatched this wu-tang beatles mashup album. verdict: pretty cool. samples aren't too forced/mashup-y. and criminology are probably my favorites
  5. agree/disagree"Idiot Wind" off Blood On The Tracks belongs in the pantheon of GREAT dylan songs
  6. love the love for NCFOM, TWBB, mulholland drive, etc. but here are some i liked and didnt see on either ebert or the avclub lists:afterlife- koreedanobody knows- koreedakairo- kyoshi kurosawala cienaga- lucrecia martelinland empire- lynchcoffee and cigarettes- jarmuschmemories of murder- joon-ho bongmister lonely- korinegeorge washington- david gordon greenold joy- reichardtdonnie darko- kellyrequiem for a dream- aronofskyplus basically everything werner herzong, michel gondry, and the coen bros have made this decade
  7. just finished brothers karamazov. all in all, it's a little bloated, but is definitely epic in the best way.
  8. also, i don't know who recommended Baby Huey and the Babysitters, and i have a vague recollection it might not even have been in this thread, but thanks. 'hard times' is insanely good.also for mashup-lovers, the hood internet is usually very hit-or-miss for me, but is masterful. also, is neat.
  9. meth's verse on new wu was even nicer for me, mostly because i always expect ghost to kill it "auditorium" ft. slick rick is the standout track for me. madlib beat+mos def+slickrick=yeah!
  10. darwin's nightmare- from the website: "Some time in the 1960's, in the heart of Africa, a new animal was introduced into Lake Victoria as a little scientific experiment. The Nile Perch, a voracious predator, extinguished almost the entire stock of the native fish species. However, the new fish multiplied so fast, that its white fillets are today exported all around the world.Huge hulking ex-Soviet cargo planes come daily to collect the latest catch in exchange for their southbound cargo… Kalashnikovs and ammunitions for the uncounted wars in the dark center of the continent.This booming multin
  11. self-titled then probably one or both of the remix albums then classicsyou might even start with the remix albums as they're a fairly good example of what they're going to be doing on 'ratatat', classics' and 'lp3'
  12. this looks pretty sick.black keys inviting some of hip hop's best for collaboration. mos def, q-tip, raekwon, rza, pharoe monch and more.
  13. i dont know, ive always found cudi to be a little superficial and whiny, and he's certainly not anything too out there lyrically.right now, im thinking elzhi- D.E.M.O.N.S.any hip hop lovers in here would do well to buy/steal/download elzhi- the prefacehe was the guy who replaced jay dee in slum village, pretty incredible lyricist
  14. im wondering if you guys could help me out with something:i write/compile a magazine with a friend and one of our features is "hip hop is poetry too", where we type the lyrics of one hip hop song as an example of how lyrical some of these dudes are. first month was deltron "turbulence", second was wutang "impossible". im having trouble thinking of a song that, like those, would actually impress random (reasonably cool) 50 year old white people who, you know, like poetry and shit. im thinking maybe something not from new york since we just did wutang, and maybe something a little more indie? yo
  15. mk hath spoken. yay for ethnocentricity!!! sigur ros, reclaim your throne.
  16. no, it was a joke after i found out that my real number 1 (agaetis byrjun) was released in mid-1999maybe ill squeeze fishscale or below the heavens in somewhere to round out a real top 35(mostly i just didnt want to change all the numbers)

  18. lately mostly dj-type stuff (all highly recommended)major lazer (switch and diplo)- essential mixpretty lights- filling up the city skies, taking up your precious timedeadmau5- essential mix (live at ibiza)madlib- blunted in the bombshelter, beat konducta vols. 5-6, mind fusiondaedelus-meanwhile ep, impending doom9th wonder- dream merchant, god's stepsonif you didn't know, you can find torrents of pete tong's radio1 essential mix shows pretty much anywhere, and some of them (major lazer, diplo, flying lotus) are superb.also, if we're throwing down youtubes, i got my friend saw her at newpor
  19. also, i would delve into infinite jest but the hardcover copy i have (recently stolen from a beach house where its absence will go unknown among the orgy of romance/action/spy novels) is currently maintaining my tv in an upright position.also, a little intimidated by the sheer size of it.i did read a collection of DFW's essays, consider the lobster and really enjoyed it (although if pretension had a voice, his would be in the running).there are worse things than pretension after all. idiocy, for one.
  20. jacques derrida- 'of grammatology'probably one of the most influential books of the past half-century (within the field at least)
  21. great book, as is kesey's other classic 'sometimes a great notion'.been into dostoevsky lately: 'memoirs from the house of the dead'<'notes from underground'<'crime and punishment''brothers karazamov' is probably next in my "serious reading" queue.also read a lil vonnegut to split up the heaviness mentioned above- 'slapstick'it was okay but certainly not near 'slaugherhouse 5'/'cats cradle'/'breakfast of champions' level.just started 'new orleans, mon amour' by andrei cordescu, which is basically a series of vignettes about new orleans. he calls himself a surrealist, and the style lends
  22. not to mention the production on these records which is also insanely game-changing (i think the nba draft is making me talk like this, i told a girl I work with that she had a nice wingspan yesterday)
  23. this is the only one on your list i listen to very often but i strongly endorse that shit.also, piracy funds terrorism vol1 is still my favorite m.i.a. release to date and as a hip-hop fan (which you seem to be?) you may be inclined to think the same.
  24. anything lee scratch perry relatedthe zombieslots of DOOMdaedelus
