My Ten Favorite Albums of 2012

Inspired by Oli’s post, here are the ten records I’ve listened to and loved the most this past year. I wanted to write a few words for each of these, but halfway through I remembered that I hate writing about music, so a list and some pictures is all you’re getting. Click on the covers […]

If you’ve listened to the latest podcast, you’ve heard us play a game where we had to name one-word, one-syllable movie titles,* inspired by first Best Picture-winner “Wings.” *) Is the ‘one-word’ distinction really necessary?
