what's buzzin' in my ears

    go there now!! i haven't been listening to cds anymore. My days are just filled with listening to stuff off of this site. I mainly listen to my recommended music and have discovered tons of shit to buy. (ac newman, metric, ratatat, islands, rogue wave, etc.) see my profile to see what i have been digging on. (*****)
  • death cab for cutie -

    death cab for cutie: plans
    love it, love it. but i love everything mr. gibbard does. more mature sounding album. it took a while, but finally grew on me and now it is my favorite Death Cab album. (*****)

old and good

  • The Weakerthans -

    The Weakerthans: Left and Leaving
    hands down, one of my favorite albums. redesigned it for my sagmeister class. enough said. (*****)

  • Jawbreaker -

    Jawbreaker: Dear Diary
    my favorite jawbreaker album. many would arge with me about this, but realize that i listened to this not after it first came out, but years later when the lyrics and the music matched my life. I would have hated it when it came out. guess i had to mature to get was it was about. (*****)

midnight reading

  • : Punk Planet

    Punk Planet

  • : ReadyMade

    love this magazine!!! if i was a magazine, I would be ReadyMade. (heart) (*****)

  • : Print

    still reading it. its good, but I've fallen more in love with ID. (***)

  • Jonathan Safran Foer: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

    Jonathan Safran Foer: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
    liked it, but not as much as the hype. Loved the combo of images and type that he had going on. (of course it stole this designer's heart.) One thing that was amazing though is that he had me on the verge of tears more then any book that I have read in the past 10 years. (***)

  • Jonathan Lethem: Motherless Brooklyn

    Jonathan Lethem: Motherless Brooklyn
    re-read this for my book club. forgot how good it is. Nice mystery/ganster novel set in present day Broolyn with the most unexpected main character you'd expect for this type of book. (****)

  • David Sedaris: Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

    David Sedaris: Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim
    can't go wrong with mr. sedaris. Don't find this as funny as his past books, but it is just as good. Feels like he has gotten a bit more fuzzy and retrospective. (****)
