A few days late to listening, but yeah, this new Men I Trust is phenomenal. A bit less jazzy, a bit more atmospheric than last. I dig this new direction. So has this not been pressed, or did I miss an announcement? I know they do their own thing, but I'm looking forward to adding this to my collection.

I've only bought ONE lp that came out this year.

Not an issue, it's not like there will be anything to match it anyway:cool:

Seeing the recent update with topsters2 and being turned off from what I had seen (can be found in my recent status update if you are curious). Given that I have had a fairly unproductive and lazy quarantine, I feel inspired now more than I have been in recent months. Posting here because the website has been used by some of you in this and related threads for creating and sharing your favorites from the year.

I'm going to program a chart maker for others to use here. I will try to give myself a deadline by the end of this year. Although my programming skills have become rusty over the past few years, as my job doesn't require it, I feel compelled as it may be of use to others here for this thread and others. I am open to any feedback from now to when it gets finished and is made available to you all.

I hope that everyone is doing well.

That's really great you like to do that. :) I'm looking forward to using it in the future.

I've just had actually read the stuff written on topster and it's such an absolute weird fundamentalist nonsense not only about Covid, but also many other topics that it's absolutely impossible to support them any longer.
