I gotta first in physics so I ought to know if your fries are for here or to go

The whole reason I decided to listen to my iPod by album title instead of artist's name was so I wouldn't have vast chunks of the same person to try and write about every day. Billy Bragg and his love for B's is doing his best to ruin that for me. Damn you Billy!

Bloke on Bloke is a collection of b-sides and extras from his 1996 album William Bloke. At seven tracks it meets my minimum as a full album (I really think an EP should have no more than 5 tracks, but those are my own fickle rules). The more I listen to it, the more I love William Bloke and this little collection is a nice addition.

But really, I have a hard time thinking that many of you are big fans of William Bloke and are looking to add to your collections. This is probably another album best left to the big Billy Bragg geeks like me.

If you really want to check it out, though, get "The Boy Done Good" or "Rule Nor Reason" or big Smiths fan might like the cover of "Never Had No One Ever."

Oh, a shout-out to blinking lights last post eh? I see you even put it in your "best of 2005" list. I dig the eels, although I thought that "blinking lights and other revelations" dragged on a little. They could've easily made it a single CD of really great songs, then made the leftovers "rareities" for fans more rabid than I.

But I think I'm one of the only people out there that still listens to an album from start to end, so maybe it doesn't matter.

I know what you mean about making it one album. It probably would have been a lot more well received if people didn;t have to wade through so many songs.

This whole process has gotten me back to listening to entire albums, but I think most people these days just pick and choose the songs they like. I know I usualy do.
