any readers who didn't already know:

I've been elected to the position of WUSC's official Fall/Spring '09/'10 MUSIC DIRECTOR!!

along with John

we'll be sharing the duties.

the job comes with a bit of a history of one person doing a whole lot more than the other, but i am hoping that will NOT be the case with he and i. to celebrate the win, i grabbed 14 CD's from the music office yesterday and am in the process of reviewing them right now.

the best of bdp (this semester (so far))

i think after two fund raiser shows this year dedicated to folk music, each garnering no donations, i have concluded that people in columbia don't like hearing folk on the radio

well don't worry, there's plenty of remixed elctrnk indie pop and poptastic punk specialty shows dedicated to free format to go around these days

i'd already decided this before today, but i don't believe i'm doing another specialty show next semester

much more likely will be the return of what's cookin'


this was my "best of" show playlist and i thought it was pretty damn bangar—
