October 10, 2006
You may be wondering why I selected this album (so far I`ve stayed away from albums released in 2006) but I got my ticket yesterday to see K-OS @ Call The Office...Looking forward to it..I`m really diggin the new album, especially the track with Kevin Drew and Sam Roberts...stay tuned for pictures...

PHOENIX - United
Sep 19, 2000
I think I discovered Phoenix the same way everyone else did...I watched Lost in Translation with Bill Murray and herd the song "Too Young"...I then proceded to my vehicle and drove to the nearest CD store and bought United....wait that`s a lie...they didn`t have it and I had to order it in...regardless I got the friggin CD..
Phoenix - Too Young
Phoenix -If I Ever Feel Better
Phoenix -Summer Days
ELLIOTT SMITH - Either/Or
25 February 1997
Kill Rock Stars
Funny cause now as I sit here thinking of what to say about an album that has greatly influenced my life and made Elliott Smith my fav artist (hence the Ferdinand The Bull tattoo on my right arm)...where was I going..oh yeah...Funny! cause I found this album through a movie as well...Good Will Hunting...also a great film!
Elliott Smith -Angeles
Elliott Smith -Rose Parade
Elliott Smith -Between The Bars
THRUSH HERMIT - Clayton Park
Feb 23, 1999
The best album by the band Thrush Hermit who are no longer a band :-( ...When I was young and fancy free I followed these guys around during there final tour (meaning I saw em in TO,London, and Hamilton)..one of the best ideas I`ve ever had...
Thrush Hermit -From The Back Of The Film
Thrush Hermit -(Oh Man) What to Do?
Thrush Hermit -The Day We Hit The Coast
TAHITI 80 - Puzzle
Jun 6, 2000
Don`t know much abou Tahiti 80...I know that they are french and that Puzzle is a great album...If you know anything else about these guys let me know (comments or e-mail)
Tahiti 80 -Heartbeat
Tahiti 80 - Yellow Butterfly
Tahiti 80 -Revolution 80
SPARKLEHORSE - It`s A Wonderful Life
July 3 2001
A very slow album and when you first hear it you might fall asleep...but not me I love it and this album was just the beginning
for me (I also love the new album) I think Mark Linkous might be the new Elliott Smith....
Sparklehorse - Piano Fire
Sparklehorse -Gold Day
Sparklehorse - Little Fat Baby
JAY - Z - The Black Album
November 14, 2003
Not going to lie to ya...this is a sneaky way of droppin the new Jay-Z single on ya...My sis is the biggest Jay-Z fan out there and I told her I would send her the new track...this is also my favourite Jay-Z album....
Jay-Z-Dirt Off Your Shoulder
Jay-Z-Show Me What You Got
THE THRILLS - Let`s Bottle Bohemia
Sep 14, 2004
A lot of critics say that The Thrills debut album (So Much For The City) is a lot better then this one...and I have to disagree on that one..I enjoy this one better..also Van Dyke Parks ( the brains behind the string arrangments) is amazing as always (he also did Rufus Wainwrights debut album..What Ever Happened to Cory Haim? is a great title for a song.
The Thrills -What Ever Happened To Cory Haim?
The Thrills -Saturday Night
The Thrills - The Irish Keep Gate Crashing
WEEZER - Pinkerton
September 24 1996
The best Weezer album period...Which sucks cause I don`t even think its sold 1 million copies yet..when the blue album has sold 3million copies..I listened to this album a lot in high school...and it reminded me of a girl I dated...she loved the album cause I loved it...when we broke up I doubt she listened to it ever again..Bitch(jk)
Weezer -Pink Triangle
Weezer -Across The Sea
Weezer -El Scorcho
THE HOLD STEADY - Boys & Girls In America
Oct 3, 2006
Man what a great album...and its the last one I`m going to leave with ya cause me and Patricia have been playing it consistantly around the apt and in the car...thinking about checkin em out in Toronto...
The Hold Steady -Chillout Tent (<--My Fav Track)
The Hold Steady -Chips Ahoy!
The Hold Steady -First Night
The Hold Steady -You Can Make Him Like You (<--Patricia`s Fav Track)
