"Greetings from the lurking soul. Long time viewer, first time creator. I am producing because I now sense the ideal life position to start the Personal Brand of creations. I loosely followed the furry community just a tad before the 2010's started.
Also, my orchid's parasites have died due to TB, so let's donate & kick cancer's butt! My choice is to kill the animals."
Thank you beakbomb, your donation is very much appreciated.
And that is the end of my swing at #MWE. If I do this again, some changes to how I mark & catalog the music played through shall need be worked more. Maybe pre-roll dice instead of doing it per-day? Also skip days that I miss, to prevent wasteful crunch. But in the end, a visage of writing experience has to have grown from this exercise. I cannot deny a vague sense of progress, with reasons unknown.
Again, credit must go to @noyokono@twitter for creating this from the beginning.
Thank you for reading.

29/29: Mission of Burma - Vs. (1982)
THIS IS IT. I WANT ALL OF MY WORK TO FEEL GOOD AS THIS. ALL OF THE PUNK ENERGY COMPRESSED AND COMPACTED INTO ARTSY TWISTS AND DISSONANCES THAT RESULT IN AN ABSOLUTE BLAST. OVERDRIVEY CHORDS AND TONES PUSHING WITH DRY WEIRD DRUMMING AND GROOVING BASSES.
YES! THIS IS IT.

28/29: Godflesh - Streetcleaner (1989)
I AM GOING TO GO OUTSIDE AND NO ONE WILL STOP ME
SERIOUSLY IM AT MY LIMIT
OUR WORLD BURNS IN A SHITTY PLASTIC TUB OF GUTTER OIL TO APPEASE YUORE VOID
OH YEAH THIS IS A KILLER ALBUM GREATEST DRUM MACHINE USE & 100 PERCENT HEAVY. HEAVIER THAN BRENDAN FRASERS ALIMONY.
27/29: Bent Knee - You Know What They Mean (2019)
1. Bent Knee is not "Ben Levin Band", despite sarcasm in the thread's first post. This is fronted and lead by Courtney Swain.
2. This is notably more loud and aggressive than expected from something involving Ben Levin. Nice.
3. I can't mosh to this, 0/10. (Will need repeat listens.)
Fav. Tracks: Bone Rage, Lovell/Lovemenot, Catch Light, Golden Hour, It Happens
26/29: Mount Eerie - No Flashlight (2005)
Foundation-quality folk tunes where additional layers add on. Varies from a distorted bass guitar, to a sweet piano or clarinet. Some tracks just go by too quickly, as detriment.
Fav tracks: I Hold Nothing, No Inside No Out, Stop Singing, No Flashlight (1), What?
25/29: Insane Clown Posse - The Great Milenko (1997)
"[talkbox fx] what is a juggalo? ask what it is well fuck if i know //
i dunno but im down with the clown & im down for life yo"
(its cartoon bars of getting naked & droppin ur balls in rich ppl's mouths & terrorizing the town set on top of boom bap beats hell yeah)
24/29: Current 93 - All The Pretty Little Horses (1996)
This album is cornier than all the AOR-era Rush albums combined. If you can get past the aggressively British accents, there may be a beautiful sound effects & poetry podcast about childhood. But hey, never grew up with the Catholic/Protestant tradition. Just Evangelicals :-) .
23/29: Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island (1996)
Talk about whiplash. Bittersweet folky tunes played out of a blown speaker. Loved it whole. The melodica/"air organ" and trombone additions just make it all fit together. Will need to re-listen to Aeroplane, for even those highs were, dare I say, exceeded.
It's a great album.
22/29: Butthole Surfers - Locust Abortion Technician (1987)
Mostly consists of interludes & basic guitar songs of guys screwing around in a home studio. I think there's really like 4-5 'songs', & the rest is digressions & borderline skits. Got a smirk every other while. I like it. Will check for development in other directions.
21/29: The Knife - Shaking The Habitual (2013)
Even longer than the Ladytron album @ ~95 minutes in length. Some of tracks got a sorta eerie tone down, but the majority of the running length goes to messy, 7+ minute long electronic jam sessions. Not seeing what others got in this back in 2013. Need another listen.
Will say that the cover art has stuck with me for years now. A combo of two harsh colors plus moderate-heavy compression make this more striking than any cover I've seen.
20/29: Dogs Die In Hot Cars - Please Describe Yourself (2004)
Like drinking a plastic bottle of 90% high fructose corn syrup labeled "I Can't Believe It's Not Syrup!"
Cue 'Indie As Fuck' instrumentals. Even the rare smooth sound ones are completely squandered by the overbearing "smart/clever" pop culture references everywhere.
19/29: Ladytron - Witching Hour (2005)
Tracks of hooky (synth)pop bangers, one after another. Still pretty edgy and sleek in the production department, even now in 2020. Shockingly well paced for technically being an hour-long album, the sort of recording bloat meant for CDs. Throughly impressed!
18/29: Pentatonix - Self-Titled (2015)
The antiseptic prod. kinda hampers vibes the whole vibe. Want to hear the pop songwriting of ~2011/2015 or so, but primarily done with the human voice (+ more effects)?
Pretty much all the songs with videos are well. Not bad tbh.
Fav. Tracks: Can't Sleep Love, If I Ever Fall In Love, Take Me Home
P.S. I skipped the previous one because that album isn't available for streaming and all my tape players are still disassembled. Onto the next one.
16/29: Vertical Horizon - Everything You Want (1999)
This is one of the most 'mid-late 90s Pop Rock' albums ever (ft. vaguely christian lyrics). You can literally hear that early Pro Tools compression all over.
They tried to quash it, but the human touch is still there.
Sweet sweet hooks, man. Hell yeah this is good.
15/29: Godspeed You Black Emperor - Lift Yr. Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven (2000)
Swelling orchestral parts and rock instrumentation. While no movie has copied this completely, it still suffers from the context wringer that the Arcade Fire album had too. May as well stick to remembering "the moments".

14/29: Incapacitants - As Loud As Possible (1995)
It's a Noise album.
Giant walls of volume, done As Loud As Possible. As best as Japanese guys in the 90s yelling into FX pedals could, which is actually pretty well, all things considered.
A Harsh Noise album w/ the volume down basically functions the same as Ambient.
13/29: American Pleasure Club - A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This (2018)
Newer release from one of the Bandcamp Emo pioneers. A couple genre palettes are dipped into, with more hits than misses. More than the sum of its parts.
Favs: This Is Heaven & I'd Die for It, New Years Eve, Eating Cherries, The Sun Was in My Eyes
12/29: Anamanaguchi - Dawn Metropolis (2009)
Like the opening track just from its inclusion in the Bit Trip series, but uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Chiptune is a genre that personally sounds worse w/ age, & I especially didn't like hybrid chip music as a pre-teen. Only bad memories exist here.
Favs: Blackout City, Mermaid
11/29: Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation (1988)
Sans the bloated bridge freakouts, I struggle to see the difference on here & what other Punk bands were doing in the 80s, and this as regarded 'artier'/for collegers. Poppier than it's reputation precedes. Hit and miss.
Overrated? Yeah. But damn the C side is NICE!!
P.S. On quick thought, the entire second half is great. Just wasn't really keen on the first half's much. Just everything from 'Hey Joni' to even 'Trilogy' is a blast.
10/29: Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More (2009)
This album makes Crywank sound rebellious. This album makes latter-day AJJ sound raw. Foo Fighters are more diverse than this.
This sucks & one guy being the son of a hedge fund manager is the perfect cherry on top.
Calculated & predictable, like negative yield bonds.
