The 666 Best Songs of 2014

This is (by far) the biggest longest list on this website. To be honest, was not impressed with the music quality of 2013. That was probably the end of music, the beginning of the no-music generation, and I was prepared to abandon this website for something different... the 1977 story was a good enough ending for the whole thing.

However, since this project began, I had gotten used to writing to music, and I wanted to write an epic novel that would have more meaning and substance than the collection on this site.

In addition, I felt that perhaps 2013 was a bad year for music because I was in a rut- maybe I was staking out the same crap and going to a well that had run dry.

So, I researched as much music as I could... courtesy of Rate Your Music with their Top 1000 albums that I could customize by the genres (they are not the slightest least bit impressed with this mere 666 single songs; and your asses can't customize shit on this site-- you're stuck listening to the songs in whatever order I select) and wrote a 824-page dystopian epic called The Mansion and published the mother fucker.

Unfortunately, the story cannot be put on this blog anymore. If you are interested in reading a fake documentary that implies the human race consists of four different species (Cerians, Vestans, Dyptherians, and Dipthongs) that came to Earth via a collision of two planets in the asteroid belt told "Catcher in the Rye" style with slang diction, with other comparisons to Slaughterhouse Five, Infinite Jest, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and Brave New World, then you have to buy the book from amazon.

In the meantime, enjoy the music:

NC-17 SOUNDTRAXXX is being edited, revised, and published. The literature content is gradually being removed for publication or  being transferred to the upcoming site: MHQ HEADQUARTERS. The music countdowns, however, shall remain here.

In the meantime... our first actual book publication, a dystopian epic: The Mansion 

According to the plant and animal life on Earth, which eventually unfriends the human race amidst bold accusations coming from an oddly-shaped row of trees: the concepts of government, religion, and economics were fabricated by the same sources that devised such absurdity as Black Friday sales, fashionable bowling attire, expiration dates for vaginal lube, and marketing strategies to entice specifically targeted mayonnaise consumers … and these sources obviously did not originate on the Planet Earth. From Prohibition to the dystopian future plagued with revolution, animosity towards society, and farming hippos with growth hormones, characters such as Squirrel Abraham and Jimmers Waffles (raccoon) not only challenge the status quo, but also question the entire history that created it.

Compiling 30 Sections and 68 different themes and storylines, which explore topics ranging from concepts of customer service to victimless crimes to a town in West Virginia that repeatedly becomes a ghost town; and featuring guest appearances from the likes of seahorses, dragonflies, praying mantis, chickens, and raccoon, The Mansion chronicles the plight of the human race, where Primitive Man evolved into the species known as Homo Bowler, and set out to destroy the world in a quest for decorative plates, generic shoes, and non-dairy powdered creamer.
