These ballots were only mailed out to people who promised they would vote for Sage Francis and MC Lars records. Requirements for suffrage included owning at least four backpacks made of the finest Jansport and three Fidel Castro caps. Those without goatees need not apply. I informed Jonathan Bradley that if he voted for Young Jeezy he couldn’t wear Wallabees for a month. When he wasn’t looking, I changed his ballot to include “Electric Circus” twenty-five times, primarily because Lonnie Lynn looks dreamy in wool.

People were told to vote for their favorite albums. Hating on someone for their tastes is dumber than lecturing on what type of coffee to order. Unless you’re ordering Soy Venti Macchiato Caramel Lattes, just let it slide. And who are you to judge? Maybe one day you’ll like Soy Venti Macchiato Caramel Lattes. Doctors say they were the only beverage option that might have saved Big Moe. 

Look at the lists, listen to the albums, the rest of the week will be spent highlighting great records that didn’t “get enough votes” (scare quotes because I am the Joe Kennedy of journalism.) –Jeff Weiss
