Rolling Stone should really stop making lists. In no way are most of the artists listed there the "best singers in the world" ever. Songwriters and performers maybe, but singers?
A hundred thousand years ago I wrote a thing to post top last.fm listens to a Movable Type blog. No one does that anymore and the world moved onto tweekly.fm. When Scott (@ssxio) was toying with shutting that service down, I cloned some of what I'd used for toppr and lastweekly came to be.
Finally got around to watching Edge Of Tomorrow. Was very very good. Thought it would just be another Tom Cruise alien invasion kill the mothership tale. But it's way better than that.
If my goal was to make our house Spencer's animal sanctuary, feeding stray cats who wander into our yard has made it so! My wife is extremely happy with me for this. Ahem.
What lies below is the I-10 Freeway linking the Pacific Ocean with Florida. We Phoenicians just traverse our little part of that 2,460 miles.
Who doesn't love a good conference call every day. You know the drill.
Who just joined?
Are we missing anyone?
Can anyone hear me?
Sorry was on mute.

Whoever's eating can you mute your phone.
Let's table that.
Let's take this offline.
*paying for starbucks while not on mute guy*
Let me just share my screen.
Sorry you cut out, can you repeat that?
It seems like it's been a long desert summer. After months of 100° days, today was the first morning we could open the windows in the house.
So that's what breeze feels like.
So let's see, the 2019 version of this list is probably something like:
The Police and Soft Cell reunions are done and over and I missed that boat. Partly because I didn't get to see The Police when they played Phoenix. Partly because Soft Cell's reunion consisted of a London gig only.
The Smiths I don't hold out hope for. And let's be honest, Morrissey's recent questionable take on life has left a sour taste anyway. Would I even go? Dunno.
So I hold out hope for Duran Duran and Numan. Both still tour. Could happen.
