You've Got PoOP!!!!

February 2008

Dear Comrades-In-POOP:

Let there be POOP. And there was. And it was good.

At age 21, POOP enters adulthood. After two decades of blather and bile, POOP seems to have taken on a life of its own. We’ve developed quite the tight community of music lovers who each year, with a little cajoling, faithfully bundle their favorites into cute little lists. It’s all very sweet. I feel like a proud papa (to quote one list). This year a record 36 fans, fanatics and people with some serious record collecting issues have bundled.

If you’ve been here before, feel free to skip this paragraph. As usual, I’ve attempted to tabulate the entries and, as is customary, I’ve employed the now time-honored What-The-Hell’s-He-Talking-About-Anyway System. One more time, I’ve given 2 points to each pompoid’s Top 10 choices and 1 point to each title beyond a Top 10 or in the variously designated “honorable mention” categories (up to 25 titles in all). I’ve pro-rated titles above 25 listed titles, hence the half-points. Basically, the more titles you listed, the less each one counted or something like that. Somehow it works.

So find a comfortable chair and ask, “Let’s see where he buried my list this year?” I present: the answer key:
