if Interpol was a slow-burning sneaky kind of romance that kind of creeps under your radar before it's too late to do anything about it, Mumford & Sons was a love-at-first-sight in-your-face kind of thing. an attack on the senses. banjos, folkiness, Christ-freak undertones, warts and all. but also pure, beautiful, melancholic, overwhelming, unassuming, love.

I'm such a sucker for that, no use denying.

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?
Didn't I, my...

#2. Mumford & Sons - Mumford & Sons

Weep for yourself, my man,
You'll never be what is in your heart
Weep Little Lion Man,
You're not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself,
Take all the courage you have left
Wasted on fixing all the problems
That you made in your own head

Thistle & Weeds - Mumford & Sons from Jamie Fenton on Vimeo.

some things you can't explain, they just click for you, they creep up inside your life, bit by bit, undetectable-- is it some of the words, is it the sound, the music, will it help if you play it backwards, will you be able to explain why you must repeat and repeat and repeat the same tracks from the moment you get up till you fall asleep, still humming them as you do?
when I started my rough draft for the top 20 albums for #blogovision, Interpol was a *maybe* for #17-18, but day by day it still persisted in my daily OCD-fueled elimination drama. Every day it was on the chopping block, but still I saved it for a better spot. and here we are today, I could only barely constrain myself to keep them from the two higher spots. and I still can't explain.

All that I seek...

please police me
I want you to police me
but keep it clean

Toph (="Trouble Over Tokyo") is insane enough to release his third album as a book. a cd with a hardbound lyrics book and commentary. or a poem collection as an audiobook? or a novel with a soundtrack? or... whatever-- something amazing.

a collection of personal experiences and emotions, refined to 12 songs-poems-stories-letters---storms. at the heart of each storm, each tiny hurricane, something terribly personal and vulnerable but universal and crushing, strong. or maybe I'm talking too much again. I'll sure be swept away

We, we know what we're doing
We know it can unleash dogs
We know it can break us
But we fight, we fight all the boundaries
We fight it with rule breaking
We fight it with mistaking

We keep saying that it's enough
To start fires that can't be touched
And flames flicker
Flames, flames flicker
The flames flicker and the fire gets bigger

#5 of 2010

it's a movie soundtrack featuring the songs from the movie based on the comic book, performed -and credited to- the bands in the movie, and the songs that inspired the comic book characters that make up the band that perform in the movie. straightforward? also, fun. energetic. youthful. trashy. the best adaptation of a comic on screen and the best adaptation of songs to fit the mood of the comic and the characters. the songs becoming the characters as much as the actors are. confused yet?

Beck writes the songs performed by Scott and his band (Sex Bob-omb, of course), Broken Social Scene perform as Crash & the Boys (with the fan-fave 0,7 seconds long sad, so very sad track) and Metric with the Clash at Demonhead's "Black Sheep", the track that has burned a hole in my ipod this year with its seductive, mean-spirited, ex-from-hell, sexy-as-heck opening:

Hello again- friend of a friend- I knew you when-our common goal- was waiting for- the world to end-

#6 of 2010

half-way through the 7-and-a-half minute long quietly-melancholic "Our Love (or how we lost it)" Monika's voice starts to rise in fury, anger, desperation. and the music suddenly follows suit and explodes into a chaotic, uncontrollable drums tantrum, covering everything in dust and smoke -- and then subsides, with the last few of the disparate falling piano keys bouncing off the ground. six seconds of deathly, mournful, silent, nothing. and then -- her voice, whispering... God, I miss you... a soft murmur, and a heavy unliftable tear-filled sob from deep inside, a sigh that crushes your heart like a mountain of sorrow and regret.
Every time she plays this song in concert she provides an introduction, this is a song she wrote for herself, one she likes to play alone in her living room on quiet afternoons. a song about love, and losing it, a memory with music and words and, when there's no more need or space for them, without.

#6. Monika - Exit

cause every time I sing, I do it for you

such a strange experience. a collection of songs, all unique, yet all one - merging with each other, a bit of one in one another, the suburbs in each and every one of them. growing up, leaving the suburbs. leaving home, leaving love, leaving hopes and dreams, changing, pretending to change, resisting to change, manning up, withering down. leaving... what behind?

In the suburbs, I... learned to drive. (away)

#7. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

All the kids have always known
that the emperor wears no clothes
but to bow to down to them anyway
is better than to be alone

#8 of 2010

top 8. damn this is getting exponentially harder. like a perverse reality game where each day I have to unceremoniously oust one of my favourite (secret) artists from the running towards becoming blah blah blah. I do watch too much TV for my own good. but the difficulty is still there and the urge to not write about why I love each of them but instead justify why they're not in my top 3, in which any of these 8 could be. This is the part where I reach for the kleenex.

Number 8, the National... but I can't explain it. Matt Berninger could be reading me the damn phonebook and I'd still be in love with the sound of his voice. Only, he's not, he's saying things like "...and I can’t fall asleep without a little help it takes awhile to settle down my ship of hopes" and he's driving an elegant little rusty dagger through your heart with every soft heavy whisper of his.

#8. The National - High Violet

it's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders

#9 of 2010

the most unapologetically disco-dancey album of the year. Sexy, rude, crude and just right.

plus: Baby-Daddy, how can you say no to that hairy baby mug? ;)

#9. Scissor Sisters - Night Work

Take me any way you like it.
in front of your fireplace...
in front of your yacht...
in front of my parents...
I don't give a damn, baby
just take me!

There's something irresistibly 90s about Hurts. It's partly their sound, their look, it's... it's mostly the feeling when you first listen to their songs - that you have listened to it a hundred times before, that it's a favourite of yours you're revisiting after a time, but also rediscovering, seeing in a whole new light. or maybe I'm rambling.

#11. Hurts- Happiness

So she throws him at the wall
and kisses burn like fire
and suddenly he starts to believe

somedays you just feel like fondling your way up atop a human pyramid of dirty horny fuckers. purely as a vantage point, of course. for mister right, up there on his high and mighty pedestal. somedays you just can't go wrong with some Kylie.

4am in that ditzy queer club. Dark, humid, smelly, your black t-shirt is stuck on you with sweat, all your friends have pulled and abandoned you, everyone worth a look has paired off and fucked off to the toilets, and the guy you've been eyeing all night is snogging some retard in a corner. Face facts, take center-stage, feel the old weathered bass vibrate through you, your heart sync to the beat, let your arms go, loosen your hips, close your eyes... dance like a fucking spastic... dance on your own. and if you happen to show off a bit and hope he notices you, well, you're only human - and drunk :)

In some alternate Fringe universe I caved in to my dark pathetic no-self-respect self and put Kanye in my #15 spot. In this universe, level heads prevailed and that particular post-that-will-never-be-mentioned-again was deleted and burned for exemplification.

Let's turn our backs to crass vulgarity and commercialisation and dickhead-ness, let's play something with... class. Janelle Monαe, magnifiqua!! the antidote to ugliness

This is the part where all you indie snobsters descend upon me not unlike pissant hipster harpies with vile appetites on torch-wielding peasants.

Natassa is on the list because she represents (to me, and others) the fresh blood and hope for the greek 'entechno'/folk scene... and in a very stagnant year for the genre, she really is the ONLY one to come out with a full album of worthwhile new material (and not sell out to a big print newspaper or gossip magazine for its distribution).

Like I said... hope.

bah! I was lumped in with the 'minimalist' kids in yesterday's 1st day summary of votes over at Gone4Sure's blog.

I somehow found it fitting to just not say much (well, anything) about Sufjan Stevens. His latest album has a 25-minute track, you don't need to cram more words on top of that.

Nineteen was a tough one to pick. In the end, what with today's NASA-madness, the lyrics of 'Flashover' felt too much like a happy confluence-in-the-making to avoid. How does it go again? ...Myriads of silver discs, signals have been noticed out on the drift. Here comes the flashover, from our new neighbour...

December 1st to December 20th the blog will rise once more from its muddy ashes for Gone4Sure's annual 'blogovision' vote. 94 greek bloggers voting for the best albums of the year.

Now, I had barely listened to 20-25 complete albums all year long, so I'll just be participating with my humble pet faves in the top 10 spots and some fave suggestions from friends in #10-20.

Eurovision 2010 Λίγο Πρίν τον Τελικό

Σε 30 λεπτά ξεκινάει στην ΝΕΤ η αναμετάδοση της Eurovision 2010 από το Ούσλο (ετσι μου λένε οτί προφέρεται) της Νορβηγίας. Όπως κάθε χρονιά περνάμε μία γρήγορα όλα τα τραγούδια της βραδιάς. Καθείστε άνετα, πάρτε στο χέρι τα μολύβια για την ψηφοφορία με την παρέα σας ή ελάτε στο twitter στα tags #opa, #eurovision και #eurovision_gr να θάψετε παρέα μας.

Ξεκινάμε; Αν και, από τη στιγμή που δεν είναι στον τελικό αυτοί οι κύριοι:

δεν ξέρω γιατι μπαίνω στον κόπο να ασχοληθώ.

01 Azerbaijan
Drip Drop

Μια νυμφομανής ντυμένη σερβιέτα τραγουδάει τζινγκλακι για διαφήμιση από πάνες ακράτειας; Κλού της εμφάνισης τα λαμπάκια στο μπούστο και η σκηνική παρουσία α λα Τζούλια.

02 Spain
Daniel Diges
Algo Pequeñito (Something Tiny)

Μολυβένια στρατιωτάκια, μπαλαρίνες και ο... Φρου-Φρου! Στα μέσα του τραγουδιού η σκηνή κοκκινίζει, και οι χορευτές σεληνιάζονται. Toy Story the 13th.

03 Norway
Didrik Solli-Tangen
My Heart Is Yours

Δεν έχω κάτι να του προσάψω. Όμορφο παλικάρι, χωρωδία από τα Silk Cut, βαριέμαι, πάμε NEXT!

04 Moldova
Sunstroke Project & Olia Tira
Run Away

Δεν ξερω αν ζαλιστηκα πιο πολυ απο τη σβουρα στην αρχη η το κουνημα των γοφων μετα. Πάντως, σε πολλες χωρες αυτο που κανει στο σαξοφωνο ειναι σίγουρα παρανομο.

05 Cyprus
Jon Lilygreen & The Islanders
Life Looks Better In Spring

Τραγούδι από Κύπριους δημιουργούς με ανάθεση σε μονίμως high ουαλοσκωτσέζο, και μια γεύση από χαλούμι στο ρεοφαν΄το κυπριωτάκι στα πίσω φωνητικά που κάνει μπάμ Μαμά Κύπρος.

06 Bosnia & Herzegovina
Vukašin Brajić
Thunder And Lightning

"melt the ice" λέει το τραγούδι. Το πιάσατε; Αυτός είναι η φωτιά με το κόκκινο φουστάνι, και οι από πισω είναι ο πάγος που λιώνει. Deep.

07 Belgium
Tom Dice
Me And My Guitar

Belgium had no money due to the world crisis so they just sent 'Me & My Guitar'. Φήμες έχουν τον Θωμάκο να πήγε στο Όσλο με ωτοστόπ και να κοιμάται σε hostels. Just Me & My Fleas. Μα eurovision έρχεσαι καλέ μου, βάλε τουλάχιστον ένα στρασάκι, ένα κρυφό φωτισμό στην κιθάρα, κάτι.

08 Serbia
Milan Stanković
Ovo Je Balkan

Δεν μένουμε στο ότι μοιάζει με το νώθο του Κωστέτσου και της Τζούλιας. Ούτε στον στίχο "Μπάλκαν μπάλκαν ρουβιτσα how bitchy three πούταν free puta μπάλκαν μπάλκαν come on σάλαμαλα σάμαλι". Στίχυς, μουσική, χορογραφία, ηλεκτρολογικά, κέτερινγκ, ντεκαπάζ ο Γκόραν Μπρέγκοβιτς, και αμαρτάνω αλλά θα πω οτι μ'αρέσει το ξανθόκλασμα.

09 Belarus

ΟΧΙ ΜΑΛΑΚΑ!! στο τέλος του τραγουδιού 'Butterflies' οι τρείς κλώσσες ΒΓΑΖΟΥΝ ΦΤΕΡΑ! [um... Spoilers] Καλά που δεν τραγουδούσαν τις 'Πυγολαμπίδες', θα έπιανε φωτιά ο κώλος τους.

10 Ireland
Niamh Kavanagh
It's For You

Eχω μια ανησυχια οτι την χαλκομαλλούσα πρώην νικήτρια της Ιρλανδίας την χτισανε μεσα στο φουστάνι με μπετό για να χωρέσει. Πηγές μας στο Ούσλο μας ψιθύρισαν οτι οταν μπαίνει το επόμενο κλιπάκι έρχεται συνεργείο ειδικών με γερανό να την σηκώσει να την μεταφέρει εκτός σκηνής.

11 Greece
Giorgos Alkaios & Friends

Our very own Chubby Sakis! Εγω το αγαπώ το τραγουδάκι μας, η εμφάνιση είναι λίγο pick & mix από οποιαδήποτε συμμετοχή της Ελλάδας στα 00s (Sakis, Elena, SAGAPO, Sarbel, Kalomoira, μόνο το ντεκολτέ της Μαντούς λείπει), φοβάμαι θα μας πάρουν χαμπάρι οι ξένοι... Μόνο αρνητικό στον ημιτελικό αυτή η ρημαδιασμένη μοϊκάνα που κάνει διάλλειμμα στην καράφλα του Αλκάιου. Μα μια κωμμοτρίς δεν είχαν στην αποστολή, μόνος του τα έκοψε; Δεν ξέρει καμμιά από τις friends να πιάνει ψαλίδι;

12 United Kingdom
That Sounds Good To Me

Ότι αρχίζει ωραία τελειώνει σε ντίσκο. Οι άγγλοι μας μεταφέρουν το ορίτζιναλ couture των bachelor/hen parties τους, και πουλάνε το βρακί τους για summer in mykonos. 'You bring the sunshine, i bring the good times'. Θα τους παραδεχτώ οτί για τόσο χάλι τραγούδι, ωραία το στήσανε επι σκηνής. Το συνολικό εφέ θα το πώ 'mamma mia'.

13 Georgia
Sofia Nizharadze

Ένα τσούρμο αδελφές με λευκές στολές την κυνηγανε πάνω στη σκηνή να τη μαζέψουν και όλο τους ξεφεύγει. Το theme ειναι 'Δρομοκαίτειο'. Μα έχουν και το σήμα του Ερυθρού Σταυρού πάνω, δηλαδή χέστε με.

14 Turkey
We Could Be The Same

Συνδυάζει cosplay με Eurovision. Φοβάμαι τι θα δούν τα μάτια μας του χρόνου στο διαγωνισμό αν κερδίσουν. Μπαλέτα πικατσού, και μπαλάντες Κάντυ Κάντυ.

15 Albania
Juliana Pasha
It's All About You

Βlondie and the Supremes. Για αλβανική απομίμηση γνωστού brand, δ'εν κακό.

16 Iceland
Hera Björk
Je Ne Sais Quoi

Η Ισλανδία στέλνει το Ηφαίστειο της να σαμποτάρει το διαγωνισμό. Ελπίζουν οτι θα κάνουν τις άλλες χώρες να φάνε τη στάχτη τους, αλλά αυτό το νώθο παιδί της Κατερινας Κούκα και της Τζέσυ Παπουτσή είναι απλά ασύμφορο. Με το υφασμα για το φορεμα της ντυνονται κ οι 4 κοπελιες πίσω και ράβουν και κουρτινες για την προίκα τους.

17 Ukraine
Sweet People

Η μικρή Ουκρανή Gaga, Bjork, Roisin, all in one. Απλά αγαπάμε.

18 France
Jessy Matador
Allez Olla Olé

Η Γαλλία συμμετέχει φέτος με τον υπερ-πιασάρικο 'υμνο της εθνικής της στο Μουντιάλ. Άδικο προβάδισμα; Αλλέ Ολά Ολέ.

19 Romania
Paula Seling & Ovi
Playing With Fire

Στην πιανομπανιέρα δυο-δυο. "Girl Girl Girl". "oooh boy". "Hey grrrl". Σουξέ το GRRRRL σε Γκάζι και λοιπά γκέτο. Προσοχή στην ένταση της τιβί στο φινάλε, κινδυνεύουν τα κρύσταλλα σας από την τσιρίδα της Ρομούνας (εγώ απορώ πως δεν έχει ραγίσει και το πιάνο επι σκηνής). Κατα τ'άλλα τρελό χιτ, εγώ αγαπώ.

20 Russia
Peter Nalitch & Friends
Lost And Forgotten

Τα παιδιά ήρθαν από την Στέππα και δεν πακετάρισαν παρά μόνο κασκολάκια και το παλιό τους παλτό. Τα χιόνια δεν είναι εφέ, είναι το κλιματιστικό της αίθουσας για να μην λιωσουν μακριά από το σπιτικό τους περιβάλλον. Όλα τα λεφτά η ρωσσοαγγλική προφορά.

21 Armenia
Eva Rivas
Apricot Stone

Nομιζω οτι τραγουδαει για... βερυκοκα; Kαι ποτίζει ενα γιγαντιο κουκούτσι στο κέντρο; Και συμμετέχει ο Εθνικός μας Σταρ; Μην σας αποσπούν την προσοχή τα... βερύκοκάκια στο μπούστο της πρωταγωνίστριας, φτύστε το το κουκούτσι.

22 Germany

Τσαμπουκάς, γλύκα, attitude, φρεσκαδούρα, σπιρτάδα, bitchiness, αγάπη και... τιποτα, αλλο, απλά αγάπη. Καλή τύχη στο Λενιώ.

23 Portugal
Filipa Azevedo
Há Dias Assim

Τρωω τα μουστάκια μοu οτι κατω απο τη φουστα εχει κρυψει σκαμπουδακι. Κοντη!

24 Israel
Harel Skaat

Aμα του φορουσαν ενα φουστανακι κ αυτουνου κατι ελπιδες θα ειχε. Εκτος αν μας το φυλαει για εκπληξη στο φινις. Μην μου φωνάζεις 'Σέρσε Μανουλιιιιμ' εμένα, δεν με ρίχνεις!

25 Denmark
Chanée & N'evergreen
In A Moment Like This

Cohenhagen, οπως λεμε τυφλα να'χει ο David Copperfield και η Βάσια Τριφύλλη (τοίχε ΤΖΟΥΣ!) Θα έλεγα ότι είναι κλεμμένο από Army of Lovers το τραγουδάκι, αλλά η γνώση θα λειτουργήσει εναντίον μου.

Προγνωστικά; Δεν μ'αρέσει να κάνω. Το TOP 10 των αγαπημένων μου όμως:

1. Germany
2. Romania
3. Ukraine
4. Greece
5. Serbia
6. Russia
7. Albania
8. Iceland
9. Georgia

Top 20+5 TV shows of the 00s

It's the last list i'll be posting! promise! we'll back to a regular schedule of silly panels before you know it from tomorrow :)

This time, my best bud Tyler is organising a vote for the 20 Favourite TV Shows of the 00s by the Greek blogosphere, following the relevant votes on films, albums, soundtracks and comics.

It's a pleasure to join in, especially since I owe Tyler for recommending more than half the TV series on this list

25. No Heroics

British super-heroes at the pub

24. Drawn Together

Betty Boop, Link from Zelda, Superman, Stimpy, Pikachu and Cinderella as Big Brother housemates

23. My Life on the D-List

Kathy Griffin giving a first-person eye view on what it takes to climb the celebrity ladder in Hollywood. Plus, fabulous

22. Futurama

Death by Snoo-Snoo

21. Friends

The quintessential sitcom. Would be higher if there was more of it in the 00s

20. Sex and the City

They've been where we have. Guilty gay pleasure

19. Glee

Even guiltier. High-school musical done properly and fabulously

18. The O.C.

90210 done with cohesive, relatable characters, who do not just randomly hook up with each other, and the greatest geek love story of the ages

17. Sopranos

would probavbly be higher, but I haven't finished it yet :)

16. Battlestar Galactica

would totally be #1 if not for that final season. Still in, solely on the strength of seasons 2-4.1

15. Arrested Development

cut down in its prime. the most dysfunctional family this side of Married with Children

14. the I.T. Crowd

funniest non-gag show to come out of British TV. Still waiting for a production of 'Gay: the musical'

13. Veronica Mars

brought Kristen Bell into our lives as the charming, wise-cracking, irresistibly lovable teen P.I.

12. How I Met Your Mother

the sitcom of the 00s, with the Gay of the 00s as the straightest man alive. Plus, SUITS. and the goat. and slapbet. and special effects, and websites and...

11. Pushing Daisies

the beautiful storybook romance story of the pie-maker who could raise the dead with a touch and his zombie childhood sweetheart as the ultimate crime-solving partnership

10. Dexter

the serial serial killer killer

9. True Blood

camp as fuck (and fangs). Vampires and bottled blood beverages and lots of sex and man-ass in the American South

8. Project Runway

must-watch campness. So much more than a fashion reality show.

7. Weeds

a self-help guide to self-destruction

6. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
5. Angel

Whedon is My Master now and forever. Angel scores higher for having all his awesome seasons in the 00s, and no Riley.

4. Six feet under


3. Survivor

19 seasons of plotting and scheming from TV's most strategic and viciously twisty game, all in the 00s. That's why.


the multi-platform event of the decade that managed to turn every season - heck, every episode into a world-wide event. Just hoping it doesn't pull a BSG for its ending this spring or I'm editing this post. :)

1. Grey’s Anatomy

fuck, I have never cried so much in my life for any reason as I've cried watching almost every episode of this series. Well played, Shonda. I'm even forgiving you your spin-offs here.
