It's been a long time, shouldn'ta left you...

Without some dope words to step to.*

It's been my birthday- a week-and-a-bit long extravaganza of partying, consumption of food and alcohol, and occasional self-harm. Which means I'm 21- taking stock of my life time, I suppose. But more importantly, each day flowing into the next and threading an endless canvas of hangover, I haven't been able to update here. And I've got some really stuff kicking around on the internet, and specifically at my beloved Redbrick.
First up is (co-produced with beautiful co-ed Erica A Vernon), my 60-minute round-up of 2009's singles. Generally speaking, the best, but sometimes just the most important-seeming. I say a lot of vaguely controversial things like
"DIZZEE RASCAL – DIRTEE CASH
Yeah, it's not Bonkers (overplayed) or Holiday (failed single pushed until people believed they must like it). There's a little something more to Dirtee Cash; the playful Rascal of old striking out at the world at a speed that mean you don't notice. And that title can be only be a dig at the haters."
Though our photo-collage doesn't seem to have been put up online, trust me when I say it was beautiful. Read the lot here.
(And in the interests of multi-media content, a complete Spotify playlist.)

Even more excitingly, our Top 40 Albums of the Decade comes to a close.
It kicked off back in October, all the way back here.
But if you're just looking for a quick fix, and find out who was #1, check here.

I'm really proud of this list; it had a few WTF moments, I suspect, while the top end of the list was probably a bit generic (which is not to say wrong), but there are some really good you-should-listen-to-this-becauses on there. And you should listen to most of them.

*A quick Google to double-check the lyrics (before bending them) proves that this is pretty much the go-to heading for 'haven't posted in a while' blogs. I am no beautiful, unique snowflake.
