It’s been a good run, tumblr friends, but Suicidewatch’s days are numbered. the DMCA notifications were just too many and now Yahoo is about to drop the hammer on my 6 year old blog. copyright law is a motherfucker. this should be expected when you name your blog Suicidewatch. Anyways my blog might be dying, but sadly I will live on as a wandering spirit of the internet moaning about all those lost followers (there are a fuckload of you!!!)
I have a new tumblr account called ONLY THE YOUNG DIE YOUNG which is basically just gonna be Suicidewatch part 2 where I will be shifting posts. lots of reblogging and reposting will be going on over there.
if you want an archive for all of my mixes, they are reposted over on my blogspot account Ghettoblasters and Switchblades. my flickr account has most all of the images I have ever scanned for this blog. my Instagram is where you can stalk my sad boring boring life. and twitter is where you can see me complain about football and tv shows and comic books and lots of other uninteresting shit.
thanks to everyone who followed this blog for 6 years, messaged me, chatted about music, reblogged my playlists, and basically made this a fun distraction.
This was the first year that I felt out of touch with music. I feel like I spent a lot less time discovering music that in many years previous. This was the year that my monthly music mixes died, which is a real bummer. I miss spending the time on them. I am working on one to accompany this list, but I didn’t want to hold out on publishing. I seem to always do these things late. In any case, these are the best albums of the year. Hopefully you’ll discover something you didn’t know about previously.
This is one of the most incredible things I’ve seen online. That’s no hyperbole. Whether you’re a casual or die-hard music fan, you are sure to be blown away. I love the Internet so much right now. And of course I love John Peel. Now listening to Aardvark. You gotta start somewhere, right?
It’s December so it must be time to list the best songs of the year. Pitchfork’s Top 100 Songs and Top 50 Albums, MTV’s Top 10 Songs of 2011, Billboard’s 20 Best Singles, Spin’s 20 Best Songs and Top 50 Albums, AARP’s Top 10 Albums For Grown Ups, The A/V Club’s Best Music of 2011, Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Singles and 50 Best Albums, NPR Music’s 100 Favorite Songs of 2011, BET’s 100 Best Songs of 2011, NME’s Best Albums of 2011, MixMag’s Tunes of The Year, Metacritic’s Top 10 Albums of 2011, Pop Matters 75 Best Albums, Songs and more.
