The Best Songs of 2014: 300-201

PART 5 of the biggest longest list on this website. After being concerned the years of great music was in the past, and needing substantial influence to write an epic novel, we researched as much music as possible... courtesy of Rate Your Music with their Top 1000 albums that can be customized by the genres (they are not the slightest least bit impressed with this mere 666 single songs) and that resulted in this big ass list and an 824-page dystopian epic called The Mansion.

Unfortunately, the story cannot be printed 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 can buy the book from amazon.

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.
