33 1/3 update

My proposal for a 33 1/3 book made it to the shortlist along with 169 others. In the interest of keeping the jinx at bay, the subject of my proposal will remain a loosely guarded secret. But, IRL friends, in 6-8 weeks, be prepared to buy me a drink - be it in celebration or condolence - when the final list is announced. Congrats to everyone that entered into this ring.

Here are the nine besides the one I submitted that sound like titles I would snap up off the shelf, but truthfully, I've generally enjoyed all the 33 1/3 books I've read, with Forever Changes and 20 Jazz Funk Greats being my two favorites.

  1. Trans-Europe Express
  2. Back in Black
  3. Southern Rock Opera
  4. Hex Enduction Hour
  5. Blank Generation
  6. Whipped Cream and Other Delights
  7. Dub Housing
  8. Sex Packets
  9. The Cars
