One blustery evening last October, I waited impatiently until the clock tolled midnight and then promptly bought Taylor Swift’s new record on iTunes. I played it in the kitchen, I played it in the car, I played it at the studio, I played it on flights to Japan and back; I just couldn’t keep away from it. Speak Now was the indisputable leader of my “top 5” record list of 2010, which is slightly ironic because the other four albums were abstract experimental/post-rock/ambient works.
dear lovely neighbor,
there are many ways to have fun besides playing with fireworks
example: shut the fuck up.
