Top 50 Albums (yes, another utterly useless/pointless post...)


Nov 30 2008, 0:19

Okay, here's to completely mindless self-indulgence. So has been plagued by the excruciating over-abundance of these "top 50 albums" lists that came about through the top 50 albums generator that came out a while back. Well you know what? I think it's time for me to join the crowd and contribute.
I'll probably make a "my favorite albums list (just because I feel you need to know what my favorite albums are, since it's so important that you know, you know?)" in the near future, which will be quite different from this (since my scrobbles don't represent my tastes flawlessly).

    Thanks, I think I'm pretty fucking cool, too. But seriously, I'm quite curious as to why you say that. Because I posted this? That's quite a statement to make based on such little information- unless you're under the assumption that something as trivial as journals really conveys sufficient insight, especially when there's practically zero content contained within. So, I ask you, why make such remarks? Also, who are you to make such remarks? I apologize if you were just trying to be cute- in which case I would be tempted to throw your same remark right back at you-, but it irritates me when individuals let their self-righteousness overcome their judgment- especially in the arena of the internet, where the lack of physical, direct, and personal communication makes it so easy to make lavish and unmerited remarks, seemingly without need to justify their statements. Congratulate yourself, as you have succeeded in taking advantage of one of my personal weaknesses- shown through the very fact that I have wasted my time in responding to your otherwise worthless statement, just as I wasted my time making this completely worthless/useless journal post that my response originates from. But yes, you're right. I'm most probably a disgusting person- especially from your subjective stance. Thanks for pointing that out! As for Sarcastic_Smile, I cannot speak for him. And in response to Sarcastic_Smile, thanks, it's not like I really did anything in making this (aside from listening to music that I like and new music that I expose myself to), so the "well done" part is quite unnecessary. But thanks :). And while my personal favorite from Nachmystium is probably Demise, I've become quite fond of their latest work. I need to re-listen to Instinct: Decay, as it's been a while.

    Actually, I'm surprised that Storm of the Light's Bane is even on here, as I remember spending more time listening to The Somberlain... but both are equally worthy. But damn, I'm guess I'm not metal enough for you... all my hopes and dreams are now crushed. Oh well, at least there's always Katy Perry and Fall Out Boy!

    All I have to say is damn that's pretty nice and varied. And some pretty sweet stuff on there. Illmatic, DMDS, Elvenfris, The Queen is Dead. sweet.
