Me gettin' a little personal about science in this week's Voice: I, Robot.
In mere hours I'm leaving to Berlin(!), so updates will be infrequent for the next week or so.
You've probably already checked out Pazz n Jop by this point. As always, I find Pazz n Jop to be deeply weird--not in the top 10 results, which are pretty predictable to be honest, but in the fringes. When I took statistics, I was always more interested in outliers than in averages. For instance: Phil Sherburne and I were apparently the only two critics in America who voted for the Le Dust Sucker album, and as Phil pointed out to me, if you click on "Le Dust Sucker" you get this.
No, I can't explain it either.

Awesome I, Robot piece. And by the way, I'm a fellow Pazzy Jopp fringe person meself, both in albums and singles. Weehoo.

I can't think of more than five music critics who *don't* wear glasses, Anthony.

"Ask upperclasswomen, better yet ask a sorority (who set out to rush 40% of the freshwomen every year), how often a group of women will sit down on the weekend, or Friday night, to discuss what Bell's Theorem and the Aspect Experiment imply for a hidden variables interpretation of quantum mechanics."
Wow. I guess I'd be shocked if I didn't already know the type of people who would write something like this.

that's awesome. me and Oliver Wang are the only people who voted for Pitbull's "Culo." And we both wear glasses! Weird.
