    Ghettoville is still my favorite joint from this year though.

    Figured I'd follow up some previous shouts briefly: I ended up deciding on UF due to its more prestigious academics and overall strength in the sciences. I feel like it'll be able to open up more opportunities for me in the future. Also figured I'd follow up with some more music rec's if you're interested: Don Cherry - Brown Rice, Beyonce - Beyonce (not sure if you ever got around to it but I've been loving it for the past couple of months, it's lush and sublime), The Durutti Column - The Return of the Durutti Column, Outkast - Aquemini (decided on this as their best LP), the new Fennesz album, and the new Ratking album, which is actually pretty ace.

    Really cannot stress how much you need to check out this Miles Davis album. It's been missing from my collection for some time now, but my word it's incredible. Play it loud. Very loud.

    I've been much more into T.V. lately, running through the first 3 seasons of Louie and slowly making my way through Mad Men (not sure how familiar you are with either show). As for music: the first Quasimoto album, the MadGibbs record, Doom's special herbs volumes, the Haim record from last year (which is just fucking excellent for bike rides and car rides; no-frills pop music all around), Arthur Russel (my current musical obsession), Kate Bush (Hounds of Love and her latest record, from 09 I think?), Michael Mayer's Fabric 13 mix, Portishead (Roseland NYC Live is great), Miles Davis (Get up with It), Naked City, King Tubby (for all your dub needs), and some more stuff I can't think of right now. Got any recs to shoot my way? Sorry about taking so long to respond by the way. You know how life gets. Get back to me when you can. I promise I won't take so long in between shouts again. Take care.

    Recreationally I hope to get in on some sort of travelling or even intramural baseball team (baseball is a very, very underrated sport). Rowing isn't really a thing in the southern regions of the U.S. I'm afraid. How's the collective and radio show and photography going? You into serious photography with a proper camera and all the jazz? I've always been meaning to take more pictures as a way to document life, but I can never really seem to bring myself to do it despite having a smartphone on me pretty much all the times. Finances are a bitch but I've got some friends and mentors in high places that may be able to sorta squeeze me out of any potentially tight spots in that regard. Good to hear about you getting into Lynch. Haven't been much into movies lately. I re-watched the first Matrix movie recently (which I'm a sucker for), and I really, really loved Blue is the Warmest Color (for more than just the pornographic aspects, I don't really much like porn anyway), but that's about it.

    Glad to hear your academic life has been going well. Physics is always a solid major. I was thinking of something along the lines of computer engineering or computer science, or even architecture or environmental science. I really haven't much of the slightest clue as to what I want right now, which is okay I suppose. I got accepted into both of my top choices and am currently agonizing over which to run with (both have positives and negatives in relation to one another). I have to pay housing fees soon if I want to ensure I'll have a dorm in the fall, which is only adding to my anxiety. Feels like I'm balancing an anvil on my head sometimes. Ultimate Frisbee is an awesome game, been so long since I played since it's so hard to get people to come together and actually play a sport or something these days. Both schools I'm looking at have great sports complexes and facilities, including indoor lap pools, which I plan on making extensive use of for staying toned.

    Kinoko Teikoku's Eureka was my AOTY, great Japanese Shoegaze.

    Christmas was pretty good for me. How about you? I picked up Unknown Pleasures and The Postal service reissue on wax, heh. I've been feeling a lot more productive in the new year, which is nice as well. Hope everything continues going well.

    I never had you added before, so I just figured I would. And it's cool. We sorta established this really inefficient method of communication with several long shouts aggregating all at once and it probably made the whole thing more time-consuming and tedious than it needed to be. Anywho, it's great to hear that you're enjoying your time at uni. And the less time you spend on the computer the better, I'd venture to say. How large of a school do you go to (student population, etc. I'm not familiar with schools overseas at all)? Any crazy college stories yet? As for me, I'm done applying to schools. I'll get into all the one's I applied to, and I'll more than likely end up at the University of Florida or at Florida State University, which are both very good universities, so things are looking pretty good there. I'm largely concerned with the financials and economics of it all really (which from what I understand isn't nearly as big of a concern over the pond).

    Yeah you're right, though I'm transitioning to other chans, will get bored soon enough I suppose They already made a thread about it lol It was the janitor on /mu/ that got me permabanned as well so what's your AOTY?

    lolicore is a fun genre at times, there is a lot of crap in it but there is also a lot of decent breakcore acts in it. They did a track with Grimes yeah? I'll listen to it as I've heard it's good. Listen to The Pussywarmers, I know the name sounds off putting but they're actually a Freak Folk band from Switzerland, their newest album from two years ago 'The Chronicles of' is extremely good, if you need help finidng it I can provide a link.

    Also, Frank Ocean's rapping is delightfully based as fuck, and is actually damn good for how poetic it manages to be. It's almost unfair he gets to be this good at both rapping and singing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Wn6LvZITTg

    Shit, I completely forgot to mention Doris. I fucking adore it, and I'll admit that the LP isn't even THAT good, but as of now I might just put it at the top of my list for 2013. Earl's rapping is insanely close to surpassing even that of prime MF Doom, and even though the album is generally a bit subdued in some places, sonically inconsistent, and bloated with unnecessary features (I'm sorry but I just can't enjoy Tyler's rapping anymore, at least not the 2 verses he laid down on Doris), I can't help but believe that it'll end up being viewed as one of the great transitional records of this decade. His next progression is going to be insane. You can hear traces of it on '523', and 'Burgundy, and especially on 'Sunday', which is easily the best song Earl's ever done in terms of songwriting. I suppose all of that is what makes the album so alluring to me, despite its many flaws.

    piece I've listened to since Flylo dropped Cosmograma in 2010. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6wa1DJHITg. Dat piano. Also his contributions to Guilt Trip on Yeezus become a lot more clear once you hear that track. And finally, that James Blake x RZA track shouldn't work, but for some reason it really, really does.

    Yes, music. Now that Yeezus has gotten some time to properly ferment in my head, I'd have to say, and I realize this is an unpopular opinion, that On Sight is easily the best song on the LP. What a fucking opener, and that choir sample is fucking brilliant. I've always been a bit unsure of where to start with Lil Ugly Mane by the way. I've been listening to a lot of Dilla, Kate Bush, Pavement, Boards of Canada, Arca, and Talk Talk lately. I basically do most of my serious music listening away from the computer now, as I find it impossible to really do any music proper listening justice while also browsing the web, so I don't scrobble the majority of what I listen to anymore. The new Weeknd album is super lackluster aside from the title track I believe, and I'm still trying to make sense of the new Janelle Monae. Still need to get around to listening to Shackleton though, but if you haven't downloaded the new Arca yet, you have to have to have to. It's the most brilliant electronic

    As for fashion, I've been really dormant on that front lately. Maybe I'll try expanding more once the holidays roll around and sales start popping up. In terms of literature, The Wind Up Bird Chronicle really floored the fuck out of me. I can't recommend it enough. I'm currently reading Chronicle of a Death Foretold and A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich for school, and they're both excellent quick reads. The new Pynchon drops very soon, so I'm also still looking forward to that, but no dice on the Feynman lectures at my library. I guess I'll have to hunt down some PDFs online at some point. As for the films you mentioned, I have seen all of them, but I haven't watched anything new in a while. The last thing I saw was my 2nd viewing of PTA's The Master, which is slowly becoming one of my favorite novels ever. Absolute must-see if you haven't already yet.

    film career, but hey he's earned it. As a quick heads up, that Pitchfork sister site for film, www.thedissolve.com, is actually a rather good resource for both contemporary and older material. On a similar note to the Lynch night club, there's a Dilla-themed organic donut shop set to open up in Detroit later this year, which sounds cool as fuck that I'd like to visit at some point in the future too.

    Shame on the piano part, but what paid internship did you manage to secure? Regardless, props on securing a paid one. I think unpaid internships are for the most part fucking abominable, again at least here in the states, where they're used by employers as a means to secure free labor in a workforce that's becoming increasingly more arbitrary and ridiculous in the hoops it requires young adults to jump through under the vague promise of making a living. The guitar playing has been unfortunately been put on the back-burner, but I hope to pick it back up again once things get more manageable. You definitely need to get around to plowing through Lynch's filmography though. I'd say he's once of the few legitimate visionaries film has ever seen. Shame he's currently more content with sitting in his home in LA and grinding coffee beans and playing the guitar and giving occasional lectures on the benefits of transcendental meditation than sitting down and writing one final send off to his
