for the record- the gogol concert last night was so completely beyond awesome as to defy the written word.

nick said...

while drafting a certain big email the other day i selected nada surf in iTunes and hit random. i fell in love with that music all over again.

the more lists the merrier, i say. but i say a lot of things. silly things. unnecessary things. things with no words to speak of, etc.

oline said...

LG, yay for big note soundtracks.

pirate, in trying to explain the gogol gloriousness to croftie today, i was still giddy as a school girl. party!

prof. j, jenny and her twins so almost made the list but then the magnetics pushed them back to #11. and that sam cooke album is awesome.

oliner, keeping eyes peeled for Arcade Fire...

oline said...

let's just make a pact- you keep the pirate eyes peeled for fires and i'll keep the oline eyes open for gogols. and we'll have guaranteed glorious times.

Les Savy Ferd said...

eyes peeled is a bit of vernacular thats a bit gross if you think about it. and now i have. gross.

oline said...

ew. eyes.

nick said...

i have so many lists i could do - i need to round up my thinking cap first. yay lists!

Les Savy Ferd said...

why are you still 250 years old!

Les Savy Ferd said...

also, Nick, this is the week of lists so have at thee! I want top ten (5? 1,001?) lists of everything from over-used words to fave movies to least favorite toaster streudels.

oline said...

clearly, pirate, it's because my date of birth was listed as occurring in may of 1756. but 'tis fixed. 25 seems so young now.

oline said...

and i think the LG is already prepping his lists for you, pirate.

Les Savy Ferd said...

It may sound a bit frat-ish or valley-girl-ese, but, sweet!

Bombsy said...

Here here for Wolf Parade.

nick said...

for now, here's my top one for ridiculous things in december:

1. it's 74 degrees again in atlanta, today.

Les Savy Ferd said...

actually the unseasonably warm temps have me sorta bummed. this will be the first winter in 8 years where there will be no snow on the ground in Buffalo for X-mas. not since i was a wee undergrad. But what really burns me up is the annual Snowball Champion of the Universe contest will have to be canceled and my brother reatin the crown for another year by default. Bastard.

Bombsy said...

Ferd- howsabout you get all crafty (croftie?) on him and FABRICATE a snowball of some sort? Pelt him with it, he will of course have no such snowball of genius, and YOU WIN!!!!!

oline said...

that gave me visions of ferd/cosbO rolling crafty croftie into a snowball and pelting his brother with it. genius indeed!

Les Savy Ferd said...

only when said coftie snowball approaches target it will leap out its bundled form and hiiiieeee-yah! judo chop!

nick said...

how very miss piggy of it.

Les Savy Ferd said...

i guess that would now make me:
*clears throat*
Kermit Dread Pirate Toesock Ferd the Frog Huxtable CosbO

kdptfhc

a mouthful.

oline said...

(ahem. you forgot that you're taking croftie's nickname and will, therefore, be cosbO-croft.)

you will obviously have to become a brand. like brahm stoker's dracula, it will be Kermit Dread Pirate Toesock Ferd the Frog Huxtable CosbO-Croft's evil man smells baby and stabs snowman.
