Happy turkey day, peeps! Just a little heads up for what is to come:
The first blog post is planned for week 1 of 2017. I have a few posts mostly done, but am holding off for a little bit. I’m looking forward to getting this year behind us and starting fresh. Fun fact: 2017 is a prime number!
I’m almost done with a pairwise comparison spreadsheet for the entire list. As I am working through listening to all 500 I will be filling that out in order to give my personal ranking at the very end. If you’re not familiar with pairwise comparisons, it is a tool to rank a large amount of items by comparing each item individually. Excel is usually a good way to setup a comparison of 10 or so items, but setting up a spreadsheet to compare all 500 albums individually and then properly evaluate the rankings has been a bit more of a challenge. I’ll bore you with more on that in about ten years when I finish the list and the comparisons.
My brother and I will both be making lists of albums that we think are deserving of entries on the list, and I will be occasionally posting an entry that states the case for one of these said albums. If I get really ambitious I may even create an additional spreadsheet for ranking those with the original list. Edit: I will definitely be ranking suggestions with the original list. Some of these will pop up because, yes, the list is dated [I know. It’s only been a couple of years, but music and pop culture change very quickly these days]. It is also likely that over the course of the next ten years there will be a lot of really important albums popping up. We’ll see!
That should cover it. Hope everyone has a safe, happy holiday season!
See you in the FUTURE!!!!
