The new Pazz & Jop list is published in early February.

I love the fact that the only way anyone can be surprised by these big lists is to mistakenly read one from a previous year.

Ballots are out. I got Charles Aaron's. Anyone else get the wrong ballot?

Aww man, I voted last year but have not gotten a ballot yet.

I'm gonna try not to whine this year about polls not seeking out writers who review non-rock music. I will also try not to whine about writers who write about such genres who don't bother to try to get included in general interest music polls.

Last year I had to ask to have a ballot sent, a week after they went out, even though I've voted for years and my email has always been the same, so I'm wondering if I'll get one this year (without requesting one). As of this writing nothing yet.

I haven't gotten a ballot for the last 3 years now, but I don't feel that bad since I'm really not writing/blogging anymore.

Assuming the technology hasn't progressed backwards since I was sending them (three years ago? four? who counts anymore?), yes. Definitely.

Using my old P&J link from last year's ballot, I can get to the 2009 ballot page, but the only thing I need (assuming I can't get a ballot this year) would be a voter ID. I noticed that my 2007 and 2008 ID's are different. Wondering if I use my 2008 voter ID # will the ballot go through?

jetfan, Saturday, 5 December 2009 01:22 (eight years ago) Permalink

Doubtful. The rolls change every year.

xhuxk, Saturday, 5 December 2009 01:24 (eight years ago) Permalink

When you email them about this stuff they usually add you on provided you can reasonbly qualify yourself as a rock critic (and if you've voted before recently you should be eligible to vote again for the most part, I think).

So are people who voted eventually getting an automatic confirmation email back? (I didn't, at least not yet.) Weird that you don't even get to a page where you can doublecheck your votes after you press submit, before you absolutely confirm your ballot (which was always the way the site worked in the past, at least a few years ago.)

Besides, as everyone's noting on Facebook, not listing the singles in order on your ballot (I don't vote for albums, so don't know if it's the same there), am I reading it correctly that they don't have the mixed compilation of voter comments anymore? Maybe they'll be posted later. I'll hold off further comment until that's clear.

clemenza, Tuesday, 12 January 2016 15:49 (two years ago) Permalink

The order glitch wasn't intentional, and is already being fixed.

I will also apologize for the "we" in my Tabulation Notes making it seem like the Voice made up Winey's term "GAPDY". I wasn't thinking of myself as part of the Voice's "we" as I was writing, but of course that's how it reads. I'm trying to get them to edit this in the online version, at least.

i didn’t hear bodak yellow on pop radio here until the week it was no. 2. and it wasn’t because i was tuning in at the wrong times

labels are even more into signing people with already existing celebrity these days even if it’s more “notoriety” than anything else. the whole “let the police reports act as the one sheets” wave, bhad bhabie, etc. i know i know pia zadora put out albums too but there’s something much more craven about this edition of it

My friend's nine-year-old daughter treated me to many verses from Bhad Bhabie and Bodak Yellow last night. Very enlightening.

Not surprisingly, since the city is so moribund the only good rap is 40ish year (Griselda crew being younger as the exception) old practitioners of the lost art, but basically taking the Sean P (RIP Decepticon Sean)/MF Doom mode of doubling down on commerically unviable 90s styles, but pushing them even farther into dark back alleys, lost in multisyllabic rhyme scheme gun talk hall of mirrors, cooking down the most cryptic and morbid elements of The Infamous and Cuban Links into Spartan nearly drumless heartbeats (Ka and Roc Marci especially), scraping together enough dough through moderately attended club dates and 5k guest verses on songs by lyrical nobodies in the Midwest. If hip hop is dead, they are the Templar knights forced to guard the cup of Herc for all eternity

Write whatever you want to write, austin, however you want to write it, then post it somewhere, on a blog or somewhere. That's really what year-end polls have been for me since the early '90s; an organizing reason/excuse to write about my favourite songs each year (more than ever the past three or four years, now that P&J basically stopped printing random comments).

Took a quick look to see if the poll was up, and I was baffled by the current layout. I had to go through three screens to find a music piece. Unless I'm not navigating correctly, there doesn't seem to be a music section anymore. There doesn't seem to be sections of any kind anymore.
