Albums I Have Loved in 2009

This wouldn’t be a proper “here’s what I’ve been listening to” without a GeofCast episode, right? 🙂 Listen while you read. [display_podcast] Let’s follow last year’s mojo: Date is in the range: 01 Jan 2009 – 25 Dec 2009. Any cutoff point is arbitrary, but this makes sense to me. I’ve been willfully listening to… Continue reading Albums I Have Loved in 2009

GeofCast: Episode #001

Here goes nothin’. The GeofCast is designed to be the music I would play you if you came over to my house. Since my townhouse is small and the Internet is ginormous, I’ve created the GeofCast. [display_podcast] My model for this podcast is Steven Garrity’s Acts of Volition Radio, which has introduced me to some… Continue reading GeofCast: Episode #001

Albums I Have Loved in 2008

Let me be clear: I’m cheating and using iTunes here. Specifically … Date is in the range: 01 Jan 2008 – 31 Dec 2008 Kind does not contain AIFF [to filter out unprocessed bootlegs and demos]. Grouping does not contain Extant [to filter out where I migrated my library off of my old Mac to… Continue reading Albums I Have Loved in 2008

Geof’s New Music: 18-24 May 2008

Yeah, so uh … no new music last week. I’m in Delivery Mode, which means excess mental energy doesn’t get expended unless necessary.
