2005 went by way too fast on my end.

I love the 'Clap Your Hands Say Yeah' album; listen to it non-stop all the time on the Powerbook/iPod.

Cool list! Nice for a change to see Kaiser Chiefs at #1 (and not Sufjan). "Oh My God" was my "anthem" of the summer...

Happy New Year!

And get New Porns right away. The real deal of the year.
