Chase Jackson’s Top 25 Albums of 2008, Pt. 1

Here is the first in what we hope will be a series of end of the year guest lists.  This one comes from Chase Jackson, talented soul responsible for the Silence in Architecture-approved Death Knelly.  There are already a few best-of-’08 lists floating out there in cyberspace, but this is probably the best I’ve seen so far. 

Be sure to check out Death Knelly’s air-tight, fly-as-a-kite cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Over and Over“.  

Editor’s Note: The picks are by Chase…the extra videos were chosen by me, so keep in mind they don’t necessarily reflect Mr. Jackson’s favorite songs off of the accompanying album.

Winter for Poland and France


Dear Mother Nature,

I know that you like to joke around with us, and most of the time we deserve your meteorological pranks.  You know, since we pumped all of those CFC’s in your face and whatnot.  Some of your humor could even fall into the trenchant category.  We laugh every time we think about you making Jim Inhofe sweat through his suit during those special interests afternoon power walks.  Here’s the thing though…I think it’s time you give me a friggin’ break this winter.  I know it’s probably been a cumulous cloud-full of laughs to play yo-yo with the mercury the past four months, and I’m sure giving me 27 separate colds in that amount of time has been a real side-splitter.  But, seriously, cut the crap or I’m going to spray my vintage ’87 Aquanet right in your damn eye.
