i punched myself in the mouth by accident earlier. does that count?

lesson learned: don't hardcore dance in socks on a slipperly floor that's littered with backpacks, clothes, boxes, books, and cd binders. not to say that this isn't the first time i've done something like this

The recent Simon and Garfunkel thread reminded me that I haven't listened to them in ages. I'm doing something about that right now. (Currently listening to We've Got a Groovy Thing Going On).

I've also been neglecting David Bowie, Nick Cave and the Bads Seeds and Radiohead.

I guess this was the "goals" thread I was thinking of. Not quite the same, but I'm digging it up anyways.

3 years later, Joy Division is still probably on my list. There are a number of songs of theirs other than just the "big ones" I know quite well now, but I still wish I knew the albums themselves better.

Here are some new ones I need to listen to more:

Wolf Parade - 'At Mount Zoomer'
The Notwist - 'The Devil, You + Me'
No Age - 'Nouns'
The Hold Steady - 'Stay Positive'

I need to give more thorough listens to R.E.M. It's hard trying to distinguish the individual tracks on their first three albums, honestly.

Hmm, that makes me think that I should add Life's Rich Pageant to my list as well. For some reason I've never listened to it a lot. Back pre-internetz, I hated the fact that the track list was wrong on the back of the cd.

Put it on now!!

I bought Bjork's Volta, went to the concert and everything, had a great time, love that woman, but have never given the record the time of day for some reason. I only know "Earth Intruders."

More recently, I listened to Fleet Foxes twice, absolutely loved it, and then inexplicably put it away.

As far as progress on my previously mentioned records, I did indeed get to know my Arcade Fire records intimately. Interpol I played enough not be ashamed of myself. Tori Amos' "Stange Little Girls" remains a stranger.

I think the problem is that I used to buy records and play them to death, and now I like creating playlists and listening to mixes. The internet and the ease of using iTunes has opened up so much more music to me, at the same time that it made getting to know a record backwards and forwards a bit harder, unless that record happened to be an instant obsession.

There are many CDs that I bought, listened to once and threw them on the iPod because I liked them, but haven't really spent a lot of time really listening to them.

Too many to list. But what will I do about it? Uh ... listen to them!

Well... 2.5 years later, I still have yet to listen to Meat is Murder (Smiths), Medulla (Bjork) and Best of Eric Clapton,

Plus another 30 or so albums in my collection that I either never got around to or haven't listened to from start to finish.

Medulla: pretty bizarre even by Bjork's standards, but I really like it. It's definitely a "sounds" album rather than "songs" album.

Meat is Murder: ehhhh. I'm forced to conclude that Smiths to me are like Sigur Ros: one record I absolutely adore and nothing else that clicks. Their self-titled album mostly bored me to tears; songs here are a bit better but still dull, or they start off promising and then gradually turn into dullness.

My next goal is to listen to Nevermind which I don't think I've actually ever listened to from start to finish.
