Fix Poop 2016

Greetings & welcome to 2017! It’s that time of year when I gush about the various bits of music, news, etc that entertained or informed me during 2016 and left me… pondering, laughing, crying, fuming – feeling alive basically. I’m including you because I believe you’ll enjoy, be mildly interested, or at least not upset. In fact lots of you have received such a message in the past. If this is the first time your receiving I hope you don’t…

Mike Jurkovic Poop 2016

well that frikkin year couldn’t end fuckin fast enough could it? Lord, what a cruel, cruel joke. a three-hundred-sixty-five-day punchline without a laugh for the little guy. a running obit. everything grey like dickens. duke’s indigo faded to Beijing smog and wildfire smoke. w/o getting deep into the existential weeds, it was a fuck of a year and the election was just the tip of the iceberg. o we fucked that up big time. but I and thousands of others…

Ken Beck Poop 2016

Go Fuck Yourself 2016 Seriously… Beck PoOp What a hellaciously bad year this has been. That is one thing we Poopsters have in agreement. I mean, I don’t expect to see anyone writing about some self-released Kid Rock or Nuge album here, right? Clearly for political reasons (he who shall not be named) but also for finding new music to honestly give a shit about, I’m down to 8 titles. One of which is simply a deluxe 3CD version of…

Main Poop Analysis 2015

2015 just might become known as the year to beat when it comes to unbridled stupidity in America. But more alarming than that, I fear that with good ol’ American gumption, the coming election year will no doubt leave it behind in the dust. Recently I learned that the oft paraphrased H.L. Mencken quote, the one about how no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people, actually had an even more apropos follow-up sentence: “Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” But while the American political system as we know it is currently circling the drain, we the POmpous and OPinionated have responded in the best manner we know. While some of those who would be President prattle on in their assholier-than-thou vitriol, 25 POOPsters have found 10 or 25 or so causes for which to campaign, with civil discourse and free of all squirmishes (thanks, Sarah P!). Feel the POOP.

John Greak Poop 2015

Last Minute “favorite” releases of 2015. I am old, and spent most of 2016 listening to Taylor Swift’s “1989” – that is until Ryan Adams released his version of “1989”. Life is good. Anyway, in no particular order, a list of records I enjoyed over the last 12 months.

John Lefsky Poop 2015

My apathy is immeasurable. Lost part of my vision and a good part of my heart (the latter is more of a metaphysical thingy) and had no desire to search for new music with the same vigor as previous years. I’m sure there was plenty of great whatever out there, but I could barely give a poop. Poop. See what I did there? Here’s some stuff I liked: THE BEVIS FROND – Example 22 STICK IN THE WHEEL – From…
