I'm back, bitches!
Looks like I'm the one coming back from the dead this time! Oh, the irony! My apologies for the long absence, but I'm glad to see that DJ was able to keep things ticking over while I was away. My thanks to him. I'm also glad to see that most of you kept up your journals, and in some cases created new ones. It's never easy – believe me, I know! - pushing yourself to keep writing, thinking that nobody is reading and wondering why you bother. I know that this thread has helped some people retain the incentive to keep posting, while of course there are those who do it anyway and don't care, but I'm told it has been a help to some of you, and also gives an idea of what other people are doing. So don't worry

and we have a lot to get through. I've agreed with DJ to cover back to the beginning of November, as his pc is in the shop, or was, and he hasn't had the time to post his entries for the last month. Eventually the two threads will be merged into this and we'll continue on from there, but for now we're going to check out any entries that were made since November 1 and try to bring this thing up to date.

Right you are, Big Guy! Keep yer beard on!
Hey! Look at that! Even the Big Man comes to this thread! Must make me really cool!

Ah, who needs Him? I got you guys, right? Right? Guys! Guys?

Ah, who needs you guys? I'm gonna go build my own thread, with blackjack and hookers! In fact, forget about the thread!
****! The thread!

Now where was I? Oh yes! The update!

Notes for those who are not familiar with my way of doing things in this thread:
Spoiler for read here:

1. Anything published (that's posted, not written or waiting for approval; it has to be online by then) by 6pm Sunday (Irish time) is eligible for inclusion. If you miss the deadline, you'll be included next week.

2. All entries are "skimmed" by me. I don't have time to read every article in everyone's journal (though if they're interesting enough to me I may read some through) so will take the basic points for the update. If I don't mention all of the albums or artistes or articles you write about that week, don't take it to heart: this is after all merely meant to be a taster for your journal, pointing people in its direction if they want to read further. Take it, if you like, as a kind of "and many more" sort of endorsement.

3. Every journal author is assumed to have given their permission that their journal be included, and, if necessary, extracts be taken for highlighting. If you do NOT want this, please let me know. Your silence will be taken as acquiescence.

4. No judgement is generally passed on any journal, though I may from time to time make humorous remarks about them. Please take these remarks in the spirit in which they are intended.

5. All entries are dealt with in strictly alphabetical order.


Cleverly assuring himself of top billing every week, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...-whatever.html and what he's doing in November is listening to MC Trustan (or is that Tristan? And is that our own Tristan Geoff?Enquiring and lazy minds want to know!) as well as Sunny Day Real Estate, Meineral, Cursive and then talking about his own new album. Proud winners of the award for Band With Longest Name, The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die get a shot too, as does Title Fight, American Football, Hoteliers, Truckfighters and a whole lot more, mostly it would seem, emo? Oh, and the dreaded TMR gets an airing too. What did he think of it? Well, if I told you that you'd have no reason to check out his journal, now would you? That's it, off that way. Scoot! I've only just begun this update and daylight is already failing! Where's my tallow? Who took my quill? No, the good one!

Oh, before we leave him, the blank-minded one (see what I did there?) is also http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...out-music.html where he's listeniing to, and, one would presume, working out to, Death Grips and Suicide Silence. Indeed.

Black Francis returns with more http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ms-nes-ps.html in which he's extolling the virtues of Super Metroid while in his own inimitable way

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...kles-bull.html and tells us what he thinks about the Aspartame scare (get that stuff AWAY from me!)

Goofle wants to remind us http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...obably-dl.html with the likes of Bad by Michael Jackson and an oldie from the Ronettes.

One journal you can be guaranteed to find chock-full of content is http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nnerspace.html, and some of the topics covered by our favourite music guru this month include “Groove without a doubt”, “Falling down” and the continuing adventures of “The Metadata Project”, as well as the usual highbrow discussion and debate we've come to expect from him, to say nothing of all the cool new albums he shamelessly flaunts at we paupers!

Going for some time now, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...is-arcade.html is still with us, and Ki is giving out his awards for best video games, worth checking out, as is his new journal http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...usic-hall.html, where he's just completed his Steven Wilson special, and is now enthusing about his AOTY, and his latest obsession,The Weeknd's Starboy. Who would bet against an avatar change soon?

Speaking of AOTY, there's a different list in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...puc-scale.html.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...d-my-life.html says Mondo, and why not, whatever the hell Loren is! Some of those albums include Voivod's Nothingface.

More AOTY material when you jump onboard mordor's dragon longship and he takes you http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...c-odyssey.html. Ray LaMontagne, Sam Beam and Jesca (?) Hoop, Shugo Tokomaru, Sturgill Simpson, Bat For Lashes, Nick Cave and Bowie just a few in his list so far.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ramblings.html seems to be doing a sort of rec thread in journal form, which is a cool idea. So far he's got through Acme, Colleen Green and Andrew Redfearn, who I believe used to be some form of hovercraft, and whose album I seem to recall reviewing in my “Love or Hate?” original thread.

Speaking of me, I'm back obviously with my own journals, and new ones! http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...d-journal.html has been overtaken by The Great Discography Project, which has finally moved on to take in Anathema, Fugazi Bathory and Robbie Williams, and will be, if I can manage it, updated about every second day. Charting the history of prog rock, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ive-metal.html has reached 1969 as we review albums by Yes, The Moody Blues and Frank Zappa, as well as the dreaded TMR, while http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...heme-park.html has now moved away from Autumn as a theme, and has embraced Wolves (not literally of course), Silence and Storms.
Two new journals surface this week (well this is me we're talking about after all!) with http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...k-journal.html giving me a place to talk about my favourite music in other than a historical manner, kicking off with Marillion's debut album, while http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...l-journal.html lets me get a bit heavier, and we open with a review of the debut album from Trees of Eternity, and a story of a real-life tragedy.

Okay well that's it for this week, and the first Trollheart-helmed update, which ironically is coming at close to the end of the year! Oh well. Back next week. Until then, if you'll excuse me, my desk is rather full...

Till next week,
Toodles!

And let's not give DJ too much credit. He did it for a week.

At least I attempted it and made an entry unlike you that just talked about it but never did it.
