Yes! CAD was the best thing about 2020! Maus wins best set of 2020! :) <3


great last best of 2020 show. Maybe you should try to get Isaak Howlett from Empathy Test as guest to your show. So let's hope the new year gets besser than the old (that should be easy, i think :)


Alright, one last chat about Goofy vs Pluto. You are most correct, Maus, and I found one answer that seems to clarify it even further: former Disney cast members agree that "Goofy is not a dog. He is a person who resembles a dog, just as Mickey Mouse is a person who resembles a mouse and Donald Duck is a person who resembles a duck. Pluto, however, is an actual dog, which is why he can’t talk".

Goofy started life as a "goof", not a dog. Actually, he used to be called Dippy Dawg way back when, thus he was a "Dawg", not a dog. You're right, Maus, he was meant to be humanlike and not a pet. Thus, the same is true of Mickey, Pluto and all the rest. If there was a "mouse" in the Mickey Mouse world, it'd be a mouse and not a walking talking mouse.

The question then becomes, if there was a dj named Maus, she'd be a metaphorical mouse? ; ))


Got my top 8 together, it deviates a tad from CAD, but nonetheless, diversity is the proverbial splice of life:

1. Assemblage 23 -- Mourn
2. Uncreated -- Break Free

And then all of these are #3 ; ))

Pig -- Pain is God
Empathy Test -- Monsters
Master Boot Record -- Floppy Disk Overdrive (Metal Blade Records) [aside: never played on CAD, like, ever]
La Bande son Imaginaire (multiple 2020 releases)
Vogon Poetry -- Milliways
Kiss of the Whip -- Be Mine

Honorable Mentions (again in no particular odor):

SheHatesEmotions -- Edge of the Night
Leaether Strip -- Æppreciation IV
Eisfabrik - Kryothermalmusik
Matte Blvck
Strvngers - Zayka
X-Marks the Pedwalk -- Together Alone
Rotersand -- Hot Ashes

Denizen Kane
Denizen Kane

Thank the gods that 2020 is over. Great lists everyone. Here's my top 10 (not in order):
Assemblage 23 - Mourn
Empathy Test - Monsters
She Hates Emotions - Melancholic Maniac
Toal - Ritus Ex Silenti
Korine - The Night We Raise
Sonsombre - One Thousand Graves
ES23 - Only Melodies Remain
Rotersand - How Do You Feel Today?
And my #1:
Eisfabrik - Kryothermalmusick aus der Eisfabrik

Cheers! And may 2021 suck significantly less than 2020.


Anthropomorphic?! You get all the vocab points, Maus!
