When you say "you" do you mean in a general sense or are you accusing me personally of going off on lengthy non-sequiturs?

Either way it was horrifying, I looked around the hall for a supportive face but there was none. All the teachers had intently knitted brows and beady little eyes glaring at me in a "this is what you deserve" way, all my fellow schoolchums were absolutely loving the savage takedown, even Jesus himself averted his gaze. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the son of God who supposedly died for our sins, didn't see it necessary to intervene when a defenceless child was subject to a comparable public execution.

I reckon you shoulda taken Drama GCSE, Lawn. You'd've A+++'d it. ^_^

I did. And I didn't.

Those fucks at the exam board were all like "We are too regressive to understand the revolutionary genius of your performance, and what is more instead of completing the required coursework you submitted a deliberately corrupt floppy disc and then accused your teacher of erasing the only existing copy of your work supposedly contained therein through unwitting proximity to magnets".

So weird that you’d have to stand up in front of the whole school to do a book report in the first place.

Naw the bollocking was in front of the whole school you see, the book project itself was to have been done at home. Got better things to be doing at home haven't I? How it worked was this, every kid is sat in the hall and one by one each year group stands up at the front with their big projects in hand and the teacher rambles on for a while and the rest of the school does a clap for them and they all sit down again. I was stood up there with the rest of year 5 but with no project in hand but it's ok because I'll just blend into the background. But then afterwards the teacher is like "ok kids go sit down, apart from Amy Lawn, you stay there". 

A line could be drawn from me back then not doing homework to me today not taking all the junk the previous occupant left in the back room to the tip.

Magnets, bitches.

 

Seriously though, get the fuckin' back room cleaned out.

Is Shame - Songs of Praise any good? Seems to be critically well received but heard very little from listeners

I'm a fan, I do wonder if it's the curse of the January release means it's fallen out of lots of folks memories by the time the EOTY reviews roll around

I personally really enjoyed it. Prefer it to Joy as an act of resistance in terms of Punk albums this year.

Yeah it was pretty good, not made it into my top end list but it's a decent album.  Think Swedge has nailed it with the January syndrome as well though. As the year's gone on I keep adding new albums to a single playlist just so they don't get lost, but you still end up overlooking them a bit

Didn't expect my number one to be there so I stopped at my number two (Daytona) - "You consider Kanye’s Wyoming Sessions a success because the beat drop in “If You Know You Know” alone is more powerful than any dumb thing its producer could say." - and thought yeah, agreed.

Carried on and got to my actual number one. "Your basement is overflowing with dead bodies. The authorities have been notified, but they, too, are afraid." Oh okay.

These albums are not in any preferential order at all and have just been listed in the order in which I recalled listening to them this year and the ones I have returned to the most during 2018.

If I had to choose the top 5 though it would probably be;

The Allergies, Dan Owen, The Temperance Movement, Bosley,  Myles Kennedy. 

Tacked on to the end is my Top Songs of 2018 Spotify Playlist that they threw my way yesterday. Quite surprised how high some songs feature compared to others and quite dissapointed that my listening minutes have dropped by 10k this year, however it's a fair representation of where I've been during the course of this year. 

Albums:

 • Dan Owen - Stay Awake With Me
   • Lord Huron - Vide Noir
   • Joey Dosik- Inside Voice 
   • The Temperance Movement- A Deeper Cut
   • Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats- Tearing at the Seams 
   • Myles Kennedy- Year of the Tiger
   • The Allergies- Steal The Show
   • Lack Of Afro - Jack of All Trades
   • Lexsoul Dancemachine - Sunny Holiday in Mexico
   • Father John Misty - God's Favourite Customer 
   • Xavier Rudd - Storm Boy
   • Eli Paperboy Reed - Meets Higj amd Mighty Brass Band
   • Chvrches - Love is Dead
   • Bosley- Unreal Fire
   • Ben Rector - Magic
   • Phosphorescent- C'est la Vie
   • Israel Nash - Lifted
   • Natalie Prass - The Future and the Past
   • Alter Bridge - Live at the Royal Albert Hall 
   • Jonas and Jane - Sedona Rain
   • St Paul and the Broken Bones - Young Sick Camellia 
   • The Trews - Civillianaries
   • Monster Truck - True Rockers 
   • White Denim - Performance 
   • Young the Giant - Mirror Master 
   • Slash, Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators - Living The Dream
   • The Struts - Young and Dangerous 
   • Greta Van Fleet - Anthem of a Peaceful Army
   • Gavin James - Only Ticket Home 
   • Vulfpeck - Hill Climber (bit of a cheat as only release yesterday but knew it would be a funky banger anyway)

Disappointing lack of love for Franz Ferdinand so far. Always Ascending was a real return to form.

No lack of love for it here - saw them live a few times this year too, must be overdue a Glasto return.

At this stage it's a straight fight between Young Fathers and Tash Sultana for my top spot. 

I will be trying to listen to some of the suggestions in here over the next couple of weeks though.
