Written by: Pat Marquez (12/25/05)
Band Of The Mawlfuckin' Year :

1.) Thrice

Because...I love this band, I am happy to see them on a bigger label. I have to admit I was dissapointed with the bands they were on tour with and the numbers were just way to low ... I don't know who to blame for this so I will leave that out ... I'm praying that the album will pick up in sales because I know if anyone deserves it is the guys in Thrice. They have put out incredible albums and put on an incredible show.

My Predictions For Next Year :
---
Everyone Needs To Blow Up! Well... Not Literally.Well to be honest... I have none. I always find it exciting to watch these bands grow and to be honest I'd like to see them all do so. I am so tired of people saying "Oh, I'm so dissapointed with this year in music." I think to myself... HOW can you say that? There is SO much music out there, it's IMPOSSIBLE for me to be bored with music. If you are one of the many that say this, you just aren't looking harding enough for the good stuff. That is your opinion, and that is mine :) .. I would love to see Thrice sell better, I was crushed when the numbers were so low .. Hopefully that will change!


Best Clothing Company :
---
1.) Lacoste
2.) Le Tigre

For RealHaha, I'm not lying, they make rad clothing.


Bands That Make Me Laugh :
---
1.) The Click Five
2.) October Fall

That Is It!So... that is it. I had a great Christmas and I hope everyone else did as well... or whatever ya celebrate... hope it was good. I just want to thank Jason for letting me take part in everything. You guys wouldn't believe how far the AP.net name carrys and I for one can honestly admit I have discovered tons and tons of new music thanks to this web page.

I was never aware Finch's album was very hyped. Oh, and Senses Fail's album was released last year. Still, nice list though, even if I do disagree with Frances The Mute being as good as you said it was

I love love love The Mars Volta... On the other hand I do see why a lot of people do not like them.

layer cake came out in the US this year, but eternal sunshine came out in march of 2004. it beats any movie that came out this year though, so i'm inclined to let it slide.
