girls in the back

i've started to think about year-end best of lists...need to spend some time narrowing things down, here's my off-the-top-of-my-head initial notes for albums:

m.i.a. - arular
lcd soundsystem - lcd soundsystem
sufjan stevens - illinois
kings of leon - aha shake heartbreak
young jeezy - let's get it
kanye west - late registration
diplomats - more than music, v. 1
maximo park - a certain trigger
low - the great destroyer
the go! team - thunder, lightening, strike
tom vek - we have sound
devendra banhart - cripple crow
spoon - gimme fiction
bloc party - silent alarm
fischerspooner - odyssey
a.r.e. weapons - fire in the streets
the juan maclean - tito's way
broken social scene - broken social scene
franz ferdinand - you could have it so much better
jamie lidell - multiply
ladytron - the witching hour
vitalic - ok cowboy

looking at this rough list, i realize a bunch of my favorite singles of the year wouldn't make the album list. such as:

we are scientists - nobody move, nobody get hurt

tonight's a big night for parties moving locales in nyc - misshapes leaves luke and leroy's (but will we still be able to smoke??), and disco-not-disco favorites jdh and dave p are taking the fixed party to 69 14th st.
so where are you going tonight, eh?

i got a 21 on the now-infamous gawker "are you a hipster?" quiz.

that makes me an "unabashed hipster"

mix of shame and pride.
