2006 was a year in which I went full-bore on my music blog AGONY SHORTHAND until September, and then totally petered out, “retiring” for all of one month before starting Detailed Twang up a few months ago. The last couple of years I’ve made year-end lists of my favorite musical discoveries of the annum – check out 2005’s and then check out 2004’s if you’re interested – and I figured I’d end 2006 by doing the same, this time with film included (I wish I could add books but I had time to maybe read about 5 or 6 all year. How about beers?). Where possible, I’ve included a link to something I might have originally written about the item in question. Enjoy, and see you in 2007.
