Okay...it's that time of year.
What are your fave cds for this year?
With the death of albums, I think it's easier to name fave songs now.
Or maybe, fave artist. Or maybe I can stop using "fave".
Top Musical Artists for 2006
Thermals (definitely BEST video of the year)
The Blow - (The new cd got a pretty good rating from the snobs at Pitchfork)
Peter Bjorn and John - (The song Young Folks is sooo catchy but has been used EVERYWHERE!)
Pony Up - (I hate when bands only have a myspace site)
Oppenheimer - (see above complaint)
Kimya Dawson - (Her website has lots of MP3s that you can check out. She also had a baby this year that she named Panda.)
Not really in that order.

Innocent and cheap and adorable and so much fun
That's what Rebecca said about "stonecoldbikini on ice". I think she's right.
It turned out sooooo wonderfully. Over 160 people showed up to skate around and around and listen to indie pop songs.
I think I smiled non-stop the whole night. I am still walking on air.

I'm feeling so nervous!!
This coming Saturday is stonecoldbikini on ice.
I have been working on the playlist for weeks!
Which Aislers Set song? Should I play new Mirah? Old Mirah?
Should I play the Decemberists? How about the Smiths? Which song?
I hope people show up. I made some buttons to hand out to the first 50 people.
I hope at least 25 people show up. I am praying that the sound equipment works.
UGH! I keep thinking about everything that could go wrong.
"Typical me, typical me, typical me."
