That's a sweet lineup. I wonder if Yo La Tengo will be playing any Condo Fucks stuff. Sunday should be epic.

I like when they play a whole classic album instead of voting on which songs they play. What was it last year? Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation? GZA - Liquid Swords? I remember reading about those.

Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

I agree, entire albums are better, and no, you're thinking of 2007.

2008 was Sebadoh performing "Bubble and Scrape", Public Enemy performing "It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back" and Mission of Burma playing "Vs."

Seconded.

But I fucking love Tortoise; should be an interesting night. If I lived anywhere near Chicago I'd go every year. The planet ticket alone would nullify the inexpensive ticket.

Which one do you live on?

I know I'm the only one here going to Pitchfork (other than Reinhold) but the bands have been updated a few more times.

Apparently now The Flaming Lips will be playing (a couple weeks old news) but also MF Doom, or as its listed DOOM, Matt & Kim, Mew, M83... this looks like one of the finer lineups in a long time.

MF DOOM has officially changed his name to DOOM. Dj/Rupture was also just added...I'm getting more excited with each new batch of announcements, which seem to be happening weekly.
My assholeness knows no bounds.

That was a oh shit moment.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

When you are getting fucked by the big corporations remember to use a condom.

Has anyone been following their Decade in Music thing? Not too bad. The 500 songs and 200 albums of the decade got it more right than wrong.

i think they went to far trying to seem diverse by having half a dozen rap acts with 2-3 albums each on the list while there would only be one (if that) of some of their most celebrated rock acts (other than Radiohead and Animal Collective).

i don't have a total grasp of the list as i don't think they ever just had a plain simple 1-200 list, but you had to go through multiple pages and links to see them all. i would just like to see the 200 in one simple list.

i know Elliott Smith's Figure 8 is way down there. i think only the second Shins record is on there. i want to say there are no Decemberists or Franz Ferdinand (at least the first album was quite celebrated). Malkmus albums usually always get high ratings, but i don't remember seeing even one.

Bjork's Vespertine seemed low. Daft Punk at #3 with an original 6 something rating.

at least they didn't blow the Flaming Lips/Embryonic review today.

Rap is hardly the genre that Rock is.

For the first time (for real this time) their top two was the best. Stillness is the Move is some straight 90's shit. It's fucking awesome, and My Girls is the best Animal Collective ever offered. Both were first 6 mo. releases of tha year, and they held up. I'm in love with Amber Cofffman. How cute is she?

Overall, 09 has been mad solid. Some will front, but this year is the best year since the best year (09). Dirty Projectors, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Annimal C?

Great year. The end always are. I wonder how this gen. gets influenced.

Well, way back then when it was in context, I was referring to how bigideas was assuming that Pitchfork was trying to see diverse by including more rap than rock and basically that rap is just as much music as rock is, so their presence on a list shouldn't mean that they're trying to ignore rock and focus on rap, but just looking at quality music.
