I hope you are surrounded with people you love .. or like … or at least with people that you can tolerate, even if only in consideration of a nice, hot, three course meal at some point.

As sure as Springsteen has had some work done, Fridays are a mainstay when it comes to your week, and is known in certain parts of Canada and Rhode Island as the Gateway to The Weekend, or “The Day Before Saturday”.

In that respect it is the single most important day of the week, and is as well-loved as Monday’s are vehemently loathed.

“Loathe Not, Thy Friday, For It Is The Day Of Relief. The Day of Rejoicing. The Day You Have Worked Towards All Week. A Day of Respite and Rest. A Day of Joints Shots Netflix and Chill for Tomorrow You Either Have to Mow the Lawn or Shovel Snow You Poor Bastard” – Saint Daryl … Patron Saint of Stealing 3rd and Inspirational Gibberish Continue reading

Frank Gutch Jr: It’s Thanksgiving…

 …and boy, do we have something to be thankful about!  2011 has been a killer year for music in spite of the negative press the industry has been given by a media focused on the apocalypse.  A killer year!  I ran a column on the best of the first half of the year back in June (read here) and as is my custom, I am ready to update.  Keep in mind that I am all about the Indies and my year runs from December to December so as to avoid the inevitable bottleneck come the first of the year (a trick I picked up from veteran writers who also wanted to skirt said bottleneck).  So, without further ado, let us dive into the albums and EPs which have made the second half of this year so memorable.
