Delirious With Weird

Thursday, October 30, 2003  
Ian mentions a debate on the Stylus Staff Messageboard about the upcoming end-of-year feature, and all the necessary-but-evil debates about what qualifies, why, when, where, and, most pertinantly, whether the list is supposed to represent your 'favourite' records of the last 12 months, or the 'best'.

I was considering attempting to put together something about my feelings (which err very much on the subjective favourite side of the equation) but I'm not sure that would be helpful. So, in order to further the debate, I've thrown it to I Love Music. I will, however, add a small equation drawn from the initial discussion to this post;

If you're distinguishing between 'favourite' and 'best' then you are effectively saying several things -

1; I have 'poor' taste
2; I also have 'good' judgement
3; The two are not the same thing
4; I know better than myself
5; I do not trust my own reaction to works of art
6; I am prepared to lie about the way I feel in order to appear objective
