Boner Jams 2010

Oh hi world,

one of my New Year’s Resolutions was to start a blog (lame, I know). Anyway, here it is. For my first entry I figured I’d hit the ground running with a mix-tape compilation of some of my favorite tracks from 2010, entitled “Boner Jams 2010”.

I’m really into year-end best of/favorite lists of music, movies, books, etc. However, I’m not really into hierarchies, so instead of a “top-20 songs” I decided to try and make a mix-tape that best represented my favorite music of 2010.

Of course, when you’re making a mix-tape you can’t just throw songs around without any rhyme or reason; you have to create an album of sorts, whose parts work together and flow. Moreover, a mix-tape shouldn’t exceed much more than 70 minutes, so you inevitably face some tough choices. As a result, some great songs by bands like Titus Andronicus, No Age, and Nas & Damian Marley got left out of the mix.

If you’re going to give this thing a spin, I’d like for you to listen to it as a whole first, and let me know what you think of it as an album.

Cheers,

-B
