I generally don’t listen to music.

With a thumb up like that, it must be good!

Over the years I’ve learned not to discuss music with people.  Apparently I don’t listen to the right things, and as a result conversations always end up with me being ridiculed or shunned for my likes.  At some point I learned to deny listening to music and profess a love for conservative podcasts.  But, the truth is that I still do listen to music.  And, thanks primarily to Amazon’s dirt cheap prices for MP3 download, quite a bit of my recent acquisitions were legally obtained.  Now that I have a temporary job, which doesn’t require a lot of interaction with people, I’ve actually gotten to listen to most of what I’ve added to my library this year.  So what have my ears been enjoying (or not) of late?  Glad you asked!  Here they are (in roughly listening order), items in bold are the ones I particularly enjoyed:
