Obligatorily Included Music by Black People That I’m Including To Prove I’m Not Racist Even Though I Really Thought It Was Very Much Not A Great Year For Hip Hop or R&B:
1. That Whole Medicine Show Thing With The 12 Albums – Madlib (Probably Stone’s Throw, Full Disclosure: I Haven’t Listened To All Of Them But He Gets A Genius Pass)

3. Big Boi – The Something Something Story of Luscious Jackson (MGM?)
4. Curren$y – Pilot Talk (Or Maybe It’s Pilot Talk – Curren$y, I Don’t Know)
5. Janelle Montae – That One Where She Looks Like Metropolis (Warner Brothers)
6. J.C. Brooks – I Have Met Ben Johnson A Couple of Times (He’s Not Quite A Friend)

11. Acid Archives – 2nd Edition Book

Biggest Disappointments/Rip-Offs:
1. Record Store Day – "Limited" Anything
2. Joy Division – $200 Box Set for the Most Reissued Band of All Time That Somehow Manages Not To Include "Love Will Tear Us Apart" (Technically A Part Of Record Store Day But Such A Rip-Off It Deserves Its Own Entry)
3. Thee Oh Sees – A-Side Time Waste Portion of "Warm Slime" (Somebody Had To Say It)
4. Moon Duo Live – Not Loud Enough To Destroy Me Like I’d Hoped (And Rambly Enough For My Mind To Wander About Things Like "Does Anybody Else Think He’s Going To Shave His Beard And Turn Out To Be Ian Williams?")
5. HoZac Hookup Klub – Charging $70 Per Subscription Then Issuing a Cheap Comp LP (See Also: Most Hilarious)
6. Wave of Acid Archives Cash-In 180 Gram Reissues – $26 (Those Things Are All On Blogs For Free, Which I Realize Sounds Like A Lazy Asshole Who Hates Vinyl, But For These Things The 180 Gram Vinyl Reissue Sound Quality Is Not Always That Much Better Than Those Vinyl-Rip MP3’s, And Anyway, Most Of These Albums Kind of Suck)
7. 2009-2010 Numero Group Vinyl Subscription – Because $100 for 5 Double LPs Including Some Thrown Together Folk Thing But Not The Pisces LP Is Somehow A Good Deal (Should Have Been Called "Numero Group Catalog Dumping Ground For Suckers")
8. Chicago Sales Tax
9. Mad Men Season 4
10. Once Again, Being A Regular Person Consumer – Not Some Kind of Insider Who Gets Free Copies of Everything (It Sucks, You Guys)
