I’d like to send a big thank you to all of the people that stopped by the Audible Stew this year, but I don’t have addresses for all of them so I’m just going to thank those of you that read this post.
2013 brought all the success I had hoped for when I started this blog in 2012. Well, aside from the TV series staring William Shatner, but I’ve had fun and I’ve had a lot of hits. I hope you’ve enjoyed this blog. I assume you have because you’re reading this piece-of-crap, year-end recap.
The best part is that it has rekindled a long held, but growing dormant, interest and love of music in me and hopefully this will continue into 2014 and beyond.
Now…(drum roll)… the winners are:
The top posts of 2013:
And the post I’m most proud of came in Number 6: Anarchadia Interview
Number of name changes to my blog: 3
Top Albums of 2013:
In This Moment -Blood (I know, this is from 2012. But I didn’t come across it till Rock on the Range. And I love the heavy metal meets slut pop style so much it may be my favorite of 2014.)
Ghost – Infestissumam
The Melvins – Tres Cabrones
GWAR – Battle Maximus
Album I refuse to listen to: 13 by Black Sabbath (It’s not a reunion if Bill Ward isn’t there dammit!)
Dumbest Album I keep seeing on “Top Albums of 2013” Lists: Fuck Buttons. You’d think a band called Fuck Buttons would be really cool, but it’s just a bunch of techno crap. How the hell did this manage to be so big! I don’t understand. It should also be noted that there were probably a bunch of more awful albums in 2013 like Kanye West, Arcade Fire and Imagine Dragons, but none had cool enough sounding names to make me actually listen to them.

Thanks again everyone! I would probably continue doing this blog even if no one read it, but I’m very thankful I don’t have to test that theory.
