Best Music of 2011 So Far

Here is my list of music that I have enjoyed so far this year:

Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 5
Artist: Glee Cast
Highlights: "Thriller / Heads Will Roll," "Don't You Want Me"
Comments: I think I may be the only person in the world that liked the Michael Jackson/ Yeah Yeah Yeahs mash up

Album: La Sera
Artist: La Sera
Highlights: "Never Come Around" "You're Going to Cry"

Album: Born This Way
Artist: Lady Gaga
Highlights: "Born This Way" "Government Hooker" "Judas" "Bloody Mary" "Electric Chapel" "You and I" "The Edge of Glory"
Comments: I couldn't have a list of music of 2011 without mentioning the Gaga. My first reaction to the album was that it was very 1980s and very Catholic, and I wasn't sure if that was a good thing. I have decided that, in fact, it is a good thing. "The Edge of Glory" is a perfectly fun pop song. "Born This Way" is also good, but I am uncomfortable with the use of the word "orient." When "Judas" was first released I thought it was complete crap, but it has grown on me.

Album: Her 12 Faces
Artist: Lanu
Highlights: "Hold Me Down" "Wire" "Roosevelt Blues" "Fall"

Album: Strange Hearts
Artist: Secret Cities
Highlights: "No Pressure" "Portland"

Album: Angles
Artist: The Strokes
Highlights: "Under Cover of Darkness" "Taken For a Fool" "Gratisfaction"
Comments: "Gratisfation" = The Strokes

Albun: Cape Dory
Artist: Tennis
Highlights: "Marathon" "Pigeon"

Ok, after looking over this list I think I have a thing for Indie Pop bands with female singers that make music inspired by the 50s and 60s.

The Old-Fashioned Car Test

You Are Thankful

You can be depended on. You are unwavering and true to your values.

You are appreciative of everything you have. You remember to be grateful.

You enjoy creating structure and order. You get a kick out of organizing.

You are down-to-earth and sensible. You don't have a pretentious bone in your body.

I picked that car because it kind of reminded me of a hearse. What does that say about me?

Just kidding. I just really like 1930's Packards

A few years ago I got the opportunity to see a Parsons Dance Company show. This was the highlight:


Watch when things get strobe-tastic at 2:15

Amazing to see in person! The female dancer who performed the piece kicked butt.

This article gives some insight on how the piece is put together.

What Color Crayon Are You? Quiz

You Are a Green Crayon

Your world is colored in harmonious, peaceful, natural colors.

While some may associate green with money, you are one of the least materialistic people around.

Comfort is important to you. You like to feel as relaxed as possible - and you try to make others feel at ease.

You're very happy with who you are, and it certainly shows!

Your color wheel opposite is red. Every time you feel grounded, a red person does their best to shake you.

What Madonna Song Are You?

You Are Material Girl

You can't help but be a little materialistic. There are so many nice, shiny things in the world!

You love to be pampered, and of course, you're addicted to shopping.

The way to your heart is to spoil you with presents. And you're always happy to spoil yourself.

You figure life is short. Why deny yourself the best? If this means you're materialistic, than so be it!
