PoOPlists 2001



Kathena Hasbrouck Poop 01

Every year, it’s the same thing. The contributors to the grand tradition of Poop List-dom are witty, brilliant and entertaining in their recounting of the previous year’s offerings. Every year, funny things are said, insightful comments made. This year is obviously no different. The only thing different is me. I’m here to provide my list as-is. There won’t be any embellishments or crazy phrase dropping. Names, thoughts, words. That’s it. To the point and without the usual brouhaha. Joy. As…

John Greak Poop 01

It’s January 31,2002 as I write this and reflecting upon the year past, I think it’s safe to say that 2001 didn’t exactly go as planned. Between planes flying into buildings, anthrax, and the revitalization of that god damn Lee Greenwood song, there were enough disasters to last a lifetime. Thankfully, there was enough good music being released to get me through those dark days I spent fretting over the whereabouts of Dick Chaney. By the way, have we found…

Bob Fino Poop 01

1. Bob Dylan – Love & Theft 2001 was a great year for new music but this record is on a much higher level. That Dylan and his band were able to create this music in a couple of weeks is amazing! I can’t believe how great the playing is on this record. The lyrics within each song lead the listener through so many different moods and settings. The vocals are spellbinding. The I distance between Dylan and everyone else…


Eric Fine Poop 01

AS my wonderful girifriend likes to say, life exists in pairs of mutually dependent opposites, observed by the Japanese as ying vs. yang. You can’t have the concept of night without day, love without hate, happiness without sadness, or good without evil. In other words, opposites attract, well, I saw music along those lines this year. Not that every album had a ying to its yang, but I did feel like each record had a sister album, one that should…

TONIGHT LET’S ALL MAKE LOVE IN LONDON AS IF IT WERE THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND AND ONE.’ – ALLEN GINSBERG. 1967 Well, did’ja? Did any of the predictions for 2001 come true? Other than my prediction from last year’s PoOp that ‘It’ll all end in tears’ and that Bush would have us all in concentration camps, et cetera. Life has resumed, PoOp is back in bloom, and the horrors of Sept. 11 are behind us now. Are they? At first…


Kevin Ferris Poop 01

The best thing I heard during 2001 was that many record companies were going to lower CD prices in order to compete with Napster and other similar music sharing websites. The best music I heard is listed below. The following is not in any particular order. Pete Yorn: Music for the morning after – A really nice record from beginning to end. Coldplay: Parachutes – – A good record (and they are better live). This may have been released at…
