No video today, and no review of 2008 either. I blame the Rockette for all of this, naturally, but I plan to get back to more normal programming early next week. Until then, happy holidays, and best wishes for the New Year.

Normally we post what’s coming out in new releases on Tuesday, but I didn’t notice anything worth listing.  If I missed anything let me know.  I went to the same high school as a few of the guys in this band.  Enjoy!

Whitney lets us know Alex called her out of the blue and had something he wanted to tell her.  She goes to meet him, and says she’s still getting settled.  She hasn’t found a place to live yet, and has been staying on a couch.  Alex says he’s done that before.  Alex says he hadn’t seen her since that night, and Whitney kind of apologizes.  Alex says that he was hurt at first, but he’s cool now.  He asks what happened with Jay and Whitney says they’re still seeing each other.  Alex says that his roommates best friend used to date Jay.  This girl says that Jay told her he wasn’t seeing Whitney anymore and he was all over her.  Whitney wants to know why she should trust him, and she says she has to be careful about who she trusts.

Whitney gives us a brief intro to her friends, and classifies them as the downtown girl, Erin who likes to date boys, Adam a downtown guy who is a model who does what he wants and his girlfriend doesn’t always agree with that.  Olivia is an uptown girl, she’s a socialite who wants everyone to know she’s in a higher social class then them.  Join me after the jump for the first episode of The City.

Just a quick post so I can sneak in “Christmas in Hollis”.

Oh, and to tell you that I’ll be here the next two days with a Year in Review.

I am not a believer in the purchasing of holiday music. You only listen to it for six weeks, and there are enough radio stations which either go heavy on the holiday music or switch formats entirely. If you need to hear Jingle Bell Rock, chances are you are going to be covered.

My fondness for Garth Brooks has previously been cataloged in this very column. But it was not the first time he got me… (more…)

We start this week with Heidi back at work with Kimberly  talking with Brent Bolthouse about an event they have planned.  Brent asks what Heidi and Kimberly did on their vacations.  Kimberly went to Hawai’i and Heidi tells Brent about getting married in Mexico.  Brent looks shocked, and isn’t really sure what to say.  I expect a lot of those reactions.  Even if it was a fake marriage.

Alrighty gang, this is it for me for the week and likely the year. I’m about to pack up the truck with the missus and the two hounds and drive from DC to Western MI and I’ll probably be without internet access for the most part. So, thanks to everyone who took part in this here blog in 2008 and I hope to see you again in 2009 for what will hopefully be another year of enormous growth for us. May you have a Happy Hannukah, Merry Christmas, Kickin’ Kwanzaa, and a fantastic New Years’ Eve. It’s been a pleasure, and if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a snowstorm to drive towards.

Ok, next to last YMR of the year (from me at least – I’ll check with the substitutes…) so maybe it’s time for something from a local favorite. Let’s have a nice week, kids.

While this may not be the last YMR of the year, it’s mighty close. I’ll be here for you through the 23rd, then I’m likely out until the New Year. Today, I’m just looking to go over a few songs and albums that we didn’t talk about yesterday, wrap up what the year brought us, look forward to the future (the future, Conan?), and I’ve got a download from a great new artist especially for DeadOn that will serve as my Christmas present to my fellow contributors and readers/commenters. So, let’s hit the jump and start the festivities. (more…)

Wooo! It’s my turn now children. Although, this has probably already gone on too long, right? And nobody really wants to hear what terrible albums I’ve been listening to for the past year. And, if we’re honest with ourselves here, you’re probably pretty sure Matt already covered most of the same ground I’m going to cover. However, if you feel otherwise, I encourage you to follow me to freedom after the jump (more…)

As we continue our tour through 2008’s musical effort, we spend our second day with the esteemed Mr. Underscore T. This time he’s gonna give us a rundown of his favorite songs from ’08, favorite shows, and a few other opinions that I may have attempted to goad him into. Today, we embark on a journey of the soul with Matt after the jump (more…)

It’s time to move onto our midweek YMR contributor, ATL’s finest – the one and only Matt_T. Matt was kind enough to provide a very hearty list of favorite albums and favorite tracks from the past year, so I’ll be splitting it up over the next two days. And I’ll follow suit with the same format on Thursday and Friday. We’re working on a special treat for Friday, so keep your fingers crossed for that as well. It’s either going to be brilliant, absurd, awful, or all of the above. In the meantime, let’s reflect on the albums of 2008 with Mr. Matt… (more…)

I don’t do this often, but I’d like to hand the mic over to some great guys that I had the pleasure of spending some time with in college. To our readers in the Detroit metro area, go check out Schaeffer some time if you can…
