I guess I should've posted a link to the entertaining Ghost World roundtable that I participated in over at Noah Berlatsky's Hooded Utilitarian. A fun time was had by most, if not all. It begins here.

Top TV on DVD Picks of 2009!

I hate commercials. Really, really loathe commercials. I hate commercials so much in fact that I stopped watching TV altogether for years. But there is a wondrous, magical invention called TV on DVD that allows me to watch TV commercial free!! Not only that, but I can waste hours at a time watching episode after episode. Here, in no particular order, are my top TV DVDs of 2009, some new to DVD, some just new to me but all were found in the DVD room in Amoeba SF:

New to me:

Roseanne Seasons 1-9

I’ve only watched up through season 5, but this show is so funny. Not only is Roseanne hilarious and really cutting edge, but the amazing John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert and rest of the Connor clan make this cast so strong. But the best thing about this show is how real it feels; they’re just a working class family trying to survive everything life has to throw at you. With lots of love and humor, they yell and fight and laugh and I really love this show! Their Halloween episodes are some of the most memorable…
 



How I Met Your Mother Seasons 1-4

The first thing I have to say is the main character of this show, Ted, is kind of annoying… But luckily he has Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segal and Alyson Hannigan in the supporting cast to make this show very funny. Neil Patrick Harris plays a womanizing scumbag with a heart of gold buried really, really deep, and Jason Segal and Alyson Hannigan play the kooky, kinky long term couple… the supporting cast makes the show!

Top Forty World Music Releases of 2009 Vol-3

juan son mermaid sashimi20. Juan Son-Mermaid Sashimi

Juan Son's first solo outing since the demise of Porter is a symphonic collage of songs in both English and Spanish. Musically, the arrangements are sophisticated, capturing the same imagination the likes of Brian Wilson and XTC had in the past. Juan's high, Bjork-like voice sometimes leaves me with a bit of a headache, but I also can’t stop listening to it, especially the track “Nad,a” somewhere between The Rolling Stones “She’s A Rainbow” and Café Tacvba at their best.






19. Tinariwen-Imidiwan: Companions

Tinariwen's latest release finds the band returning home after constant touring to the Sahara desert. Perhaps their homecoming sparked a return to a sound that I felt they lost on their last release, Aman Iman. Imidiwan has the band once again rocking out. In ways it reminds me of their second album, Amassakoul, but with more vision and clarity this time. With this release, Tinariwen continues to remain the standard of the Toureg rock scene that has grown over the last decade.



Merry Christmas!
