New Column: You Must Be This Tall to Ride

Seems like the only time I post on this blog lately is when I've finished a new TM3AM column. I apologize - hopefully next year will be less hectic than this one. I kicked off this week's column by explaining what's been happening with me - in short, I quit my newspaper job, and I've joined up with, AOL's new online news venture.

So, big changes brewing for me in 2011. But we still have a few weeks of 2010 left, and this week I officially start my end-of-the-year cycle with a column about some great records that are ineligible for the top 10 list. One's a live album, one's an acoustic project of older songs, and one's an album recorded 20 years ago, that's just now seeing its official release.

I also talk briefly about a record that likely will be in the top 10 list, one I just heard for the first time. Intrigued? Click on over to read the column, then head back here to leave me a comment.


  1. So glad to finally find someone else that appreciates Mr. Mister's "Go On..." Waaaaayyyyy back when I was in high school, that was the 4th cd I purchased when I got my very first CD player (which at the time was a huge deal to me, because they were still working on killing off the cassette tape). I loved it immediately, and though I've long since lost the few copies I've owned, it still holds a special place in my heart. The song "Stand and Deliver" remains one of my favorites of all time.

    I had no idea that there was a lost album until reading this, but will now have to track a copy down for myself. Thanks, and best of luck with the new job.

  2. Hey Chris! Such a great record. Pull is awesome, too, and if you like Go On... you'll dig that. Here's where to find it:
