notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

More Favorite Songs

Along the lines of Jeff's post below, I put together a 2-cd set of songs that I think represent the best of this year's music. Like Jeff, I also limited myself to one song per album. Some songs were not necessarily my favorites from their respective albums, but were chosen because they best represented the album or fit better into the mix. Anyway, you should be able to download disc one by clicking here:

(on the rapidshare page, just click the "free" button, wait for the little timer to hit zero, and then enter the code it gives you)

Once you've downloaded the zip file (it's like 85 megs), just double-click it to extract the folder to your desktop, then drag the mp3s into iTunes and voilà! You should be able to burn the disc. If this works, I'll post the second disc next week. Here are the songs on disc one:

Johnny Cash, God's Gonna Cut You Down
Phoenix, Consolation Prizes
Rhymefest, Fever
Archie Bronson Outift, Dead Funny
The Essex Green, Cardinal Points
Belle & Sebastian, Another Sunny Day
The Coup, We Are the Ones
Yo La Tengo, Mr. Tough
Neko Case, Hold On, Hold On
Islands, If
Howe Gelb, Get to Leave
Calexico, Bisbee Blue
Bob Dylan, Someday Baby
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cheated Hearts
The Roots, Don't Feel Right
Band of Horses, Weed Party
Beirut, Postcards From Italy
Sondre Lerche, Once In a While
Bruce Springsteen, O Mary Don't You Weep

Let me know if this works...
