Most Common Things My Roommate Yells During his Night Terrors
Most Detrimental Things Coming Between Me and The Many Attempts to Cure My Social Anxiety
2.) The sock full of quarters my mom always keeps in her purse
3.) The "incident" with my neighbor's cat
My Favorite Things on Netflix
1.) NewsRadio - Phil Hartman lives forever because he's a ghost and because of instant streaming
2.) Weeds - MILF
3.) EVERYTHING - buy it. steal it. Hulu can chew on my salty nuts. And Hulu Plus is terrorism as far as I'm concerned.
Some Songs I Liked This Year But Were Not Necessarily Made This Year
Tokyo Police Club - "Citizens of Tomorrow"
Tokyo Police Club - "Favourite Food"
Tokyo Police Club - The Sound of Them Throwing Up or Punching A Baby (Probably.)
Hawthorne Heights - "Nervous Breakdown"
Chiddy Bang - "The Opposite of Adults (KIDS)"
Neon Trees - "Animal"
Taio Cruz featuring Ludacris - "Break Your Heart (remix)"
Ke$ha - "Smack My Bitch Up" - That was her, right?
The Cool Kids - "What Up Man"
Yeasayer - "Madder Red"
Foals - "Spanish Sahara"
Harry Nilsson - "Everybody's Talkin"
Pretty much every The Hood Internet song released this year
Probably lots of others.
Main Reasons This List Isn't As Good As Last Years
1.) Because last year it was stupid
2.) This just makes it clear that I am 100% gimmick
3.) I'm tired
Best list of the year, almost solely for the TPC love. They're kind of just flat out amazing. I may have not been able to stop laughing throughout my admiration of your fantastic music taste but I figure the most important part is THE MUSIC. I look forward to more hilarious, biting yet informative reviews from you in 2010.
