ADD ME AS A FRIEND!

also, my laughable grammatical errors are well thought out to fit my personality. not really. but f--- laws!! ive never cared to learn anything...im dieing...who knows when. but i have a disease called mortality. i try to communicate the best i can... plus i think it was correct. if robert sledge was married to his own cousin i would have said "his own".. to assume "his cousin" was "his own cousin" is typical electrical synapse error occuring in the left temporal lobe that confuses superego with syntactical structure. HAHAHA IM KIDDING.

not really.

Gimme at least your top three of movies you saw this year (your choice of released in 08 or you just happened to see for the first time in 08).

2. the big lebowski
3. benjamin button

Same for books.
1. 2012 - daniel pinchbeck
2. twilight
3. welcome to the monkey house - kurt vonnegut jr.

Albums.... only released in 2008.  (You can include Bon Iver and MGMT, by my books) And if you're list of three is some sort of combination of Way to Normal, Firecracker People and Who Killed Amanda Palmer... that's okay too. (I suppose. Wink)
1. the carter 3 - lil wayne
2. oracular spectacular - MGMT
3. for emma - bon iver
---i havent listened to a lot of new music--- :(

Then artists you discovered in 2008 (this is where perhaps an album/band you found this year that didn't put a new cd out can be listed)
1. lil wayne
2. mgmt
3. modest mouse
4. regina spektor
5. old crow medicine show
6. bon iver
7. sigur ros
8. my morning jacket
9. miley cyrus
10. infected mushrooms
11. disco biscuits
12. john butler trio

Top Shows you attended (if you made it to that many. I hope so!)
1. ben folds cary, nc
2. ben folds chattanooga, tn (hometown)
3. america
i think those are the only ones i went to...

Things you are most looking forward to in 2009 (albums, movies, moving... non specific)

1 tripping acid at ben folds, which we walked to from our hotel
2 my first real rock climb - and making it to the top
3 hanging out with edward on summer nights at the engineering department's lot on campus while he was working on his truck.

UPDATED: 12/1/08

i'm sorry, i feel like i'm always pickin on you cuddly! but do you own all these? i mean, this list is outstanding...i havent even heard of most of these bands. do you buy just a few of the songs on itunes or the entire album? hard copy or limewire? i'm just curious!! and...what do you do for a living might i ask? i can't afford a trip to the grocery store much less brand new music.. i like music but i often don't like music the first time i hear it. very often... unless its a music video or live.

that being said- i bought three CDs this year...Abbey Road, Moody Blues-In Search of the Lost Cord, and a Yes CD that I gave to my friend.

however, i finally got itunes so bought most of Way to Normal tracks with the money i had left over on my itunes account..
i also bought a song by obadiah parker - hey ya ...it was way worth it- i've listened to it like a million times.

OO, makes me wanna finally set up a whatchamacallit account that works!

anywho, i'd also like to comment that everone here's taste of music is very interesting to me and i enjoy knowing that ya'll are supporting new musical talent. it is people like you who got ben folds to where he is today (even though his music has gotten suckier)...we can still appreciate everything he's done for us and it is all because of people listening to strange new bands. so thanks! ben is my all time favorite!!! thats why i'm here...and i'm happy to be in the company of people with such great appreciation of music that exists but not been shown to a lot of people. ::tear::

i would not even pay 1000 for "favors" from ben folds or darren

robert on the other hand....

GOOD IDEA ALERT!!! READ BELOW

are YOU a huge ben folds/ ben folds five fan? do you love them for eternity? have YOU my friend waited in the cold, rain, show, hot heat, fought police officers, been annoyed by people JUST to get an autograph or picture that you will treasure 4-ever??? whew, i know i have. are YOU, my friend, bothered about not getting the chance to spend a few hours in a room listening to all those songs youve listened to hundreds of times LIVE by the real people??!?! whew, i know i am. HOW about...the first one who gets a BEN FOLDS TATTOO and show it to everyone on the suburbs.org.uk via message board picture...we should pitch in and buy them a god damn ticket!!!!

if you are rational about it, you will realize he's already tattooed on your brain and if you love him that much why the hell not.
