1. Florida Georgia Line – Here’s To The Good Times
Catchy as hell modern country classics
2. Kendrick Lamar – good kid, m.A.A.d city
In terms of technique and lyrical ability, Kendrick is probably my favourite rapper since Common. Combined with Dr. Dre’s production it’s just sick.
3. They Might Be Giants – Nanobots
TMBG literally can’t make records anything less than mediocre.
4. Kacey Musgraves – Same Trailer, Different Park
Stunning debut from the New Artist of the Year at the 2013 CMA awards
5. Daft Punk – Random Access Memories
Stunning return to form for the robotic French duo, proving they are still the masters of feel-good electro-funk-pop.

Not satisfied with just ‘meme’, Dawkins wants to insert his name under more dictionary entries:
"Richard Dawkins, the famous evolutionary biologist and professional atheist, tweeted on 3 November: “Bin Laden has won, in airports of the world every day. I had a little jar of honey, now thrown away by rule-bound dundridges.” He tweeted in February that dundridge was “a coining I am trying to introduce into English. It means a petty, bossy, bureaucratic little rule-hound.” We may feel that we have in that sentence almost all the words we need to describe such types without Prof Dawkins adding to the language. He wrote in his memoir An Appetite for Wonder this year that he based the word on a character in Blott on the Landscape by Tom Sharpe. He pleaded with readers to use it as he is trying to get it into the OED, as he did with meme, which he coined in The Selfish Gene in 1976. It may not catch on because it’s in the name of several places, including a hamlet in Hampshire, as well as being an English surname. So far as I know, neither place nor person has ever been named jobsworth, so perhaps he could use that instead?”
Is this the legacy of
Too much for too few
That I see?
The kind of legacy that’s
Tossin’ some good men
To their knees.
The ‘great society’s’
Maligned concrete cage
Sits dead and vacant now -
At least it kept out rain.
With all those corners cut
The cracks grow wide and near.
I heard some cash was saved
But where it’s gone ain’t clear.
The results of previous Movember campaigns.
So amazing…!! ♥
A politically motivated, decades-long war on expertise has eroded the popular consensus on a wide variety of scientifically validated topics. Everything, from evolution to the origins of climate change, is mistakenly up for grabs again. Scientific certainty is just another thing for two people to “debate” on television.

I’m looking forward to seeing They Might Be Giants in November so much, I’ve compiled my ultimate fantasy setlist.
It wasn’t easy, but I’ve whittled it down to what I hope is a reasonable size:
john williams did this on fucking purpose i know it
