planetdamage: the 22 most important albums of my life

in listen by

This is a 22/31 and yet without any Tarot references, a slightly unprepared, yet a mundanely complete take on the current “what are your fifteen favourite albums” on Facebook. A bitch of a task, if you ask me. I had a hell of a lot more important albums and even a lot more significant ones, apparently these quizzes are not for those who consume music. But these are the first to come to mind. The next similar post will have Tarot references. Inside: a list and video embeds.

Writer, journalist, creative. Had book on future scenarios and a New York Times-acclaimed script on the big screen. Insatiable love for weird stuff, Asian cuisine, pop/altcult, coffee, eyecandy, anything with a Scoville rate or a frequency. Makes music, too.
