While the staff are stressing over putting together their lists, and members are encouraged to post their favorites in our forums, we're also continuing our tradition of asking for lists from band members, label folk, and others in the music industry. If you fit into one of the aforementioned categories and would like to submit your list to us -- please do so here. Everyone here at AP.net would like to wish you all a happy and safe holiday season, keep an eye out for this feature right around...

Killer Mike has co-written an op-ed in USA Today discussing the treatment of rap music in courts.
As recent research has revealed, rap lyrics have been introduced as evidence of a defendant's criminal behavior in hundreds of cases nationwide, frequently leading to convictions that are based on prosecutors' blatant mischaracterizations of the genre. Ignoring many of the elements that signal rap as form of artistic expression, such as rappers' use of stage names or their frequent use of metaphor and hyperbole, prosecutors will present rap as literal autobiography. In effect, they ask jurors to suspend the distinction between author and narrator, reality and fiction, to secure guilty verdicts.

Rolling Stone recently sat down with Ben Gibbard to talk about his work on Foo Fighters Sonic Highways album.
For me, seeing bands not only being great but also humble and acceptable – that's something that's always been built into the ethic and aesthetic of this city. It doesn't matter how famous you get outside of Seattle; you can't come back and act like an asshole "rock star." If you move to New York or Los Angeles or maybe Nashville, you could go out and be like, "That's a super famous rock star. That's just how he acts." But Seattle doesn't play that shit.

Sony saw a pretty big breach this weekend which lead to a variety of their films (some still in theatres, some not out yet) being leaked. One of the notable films is the To Write Love On Her Arms movie.

Another big Sony movie, “Annie,” is also being pirated, this one three weeks ahead of its own wide release. Other Sony movies being downloaded include “Mr. Turner,” “Still Alice” and “To Write Love on Her...
