I'm pretty obsessed with the show. I'm thinking the last two members of the Six will be Sun and Jin although common sense would say Sawyer and Claire. I just have a feeling. The thing that throws people off is it's the Oceanic Six. Only people from the plane qualify then. Desmond, Ben, Juliet, Alex,...

Okay, you have all managed to remind me of things that I tend to overlook from time to time. Mint and Endearing are two pretty good labels. The music they release is at least. They're still proper professional record labels, though. You know what I mean? It's not like with Cloudberry or WeePop or so...

I have it. I occasionally talk to a handful of people through it but not a ton. Then again I don't have many friends (real or internet) so that could be part of it.

I've considered asking someone to get me one for my birthday. But then I think, Do I really need another method of playing music? I have a large cd collection and thousands of mp3's. Do I need to add vinyl to my shopping list too? I'm poor enough as is. chuck yr cd player then. u need vinyl. and ma...

But seriously, Canadians.

What's the deal? There's a glut of indie rock bands. But there's hardly any really great pop bands. And pop labels? Labels that even come close to rivaling Cloudberry or HHBTM or Elefant or anything like that? I don't know any. The best indiepop band I can think of from Canada right now would be The...

I long to join the singles club but don't see much point since I don't own a record player. but one then? there's gotta be some available in junk stores around. or even a new one. vinyl makes me feel wwarm inside.

I'm total cheese in that I'd love to go the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Disneyworld, Hollywood, etc.

But I never travel and I've only been outside of Canada twice in my life.

Disneyworld when I was 3 and camping in Ohio when I was a kid as well.

I like Canada. But I live there so I'm biased.

I will say this. The Canadian pop scene is barely existant.

I saw it just based on the cast (Page, Bateman, Cera, Simmons) and the fact that the soundtrack was so good was a good sign going in.

I loved it. It reminded me of Ghost World.

Did I think it would be nominated for any Oscars, let alone Best Picture? Hell no. Will it win any? Probably not.

If a band only has a myspace page, I refuse to check it out. I'll check for an official site first, then a label site, then last.fm, then blogs. But I'm not going to your goddamn myspace page. What if the band makes really good music? Then they should register on one of those other sites where I'll...

Lists like that (and the Beatles) is the reason I thought all British music sucked up until I heard The Smiths for the first time around age sixteen. I don't blame the country as a whole. The Grammys lists are pretty awful too. It's just that, living on this side of the ocean, often things like that...

I don't have a myspace. If anyone asks why, I point out that I'm 22 years-old.

Love them. Seen them four or five times as they always play shows around here.

Heart is my favorite album by them, though SYOF is really great as well.

The newest one... ehhh. I tried and tried but it does nothing for me.

Cars Can Be Blue have a new one coming out this year which I am very excited about.

I long to join the singles club but don't see much point since I don't own a record player.
