|Birthday CD Bonanza [2010 Edition]
|So every year, my mom takes me downtown and buys me a bunch of stuff, since I don't really have individual "big present" ideas. Here's my loot from this year:|
Leonard Cohen - Songs Of Leonard Cohen
Jason Mraz - We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.
Jimmy Eat World - Invented
Sigur Ros - ( )
Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
Wolf Parade - Expo 86
Songbook by Nick Hornby
Listen To This by Alex Ross
What Dreams May Come
Overall, pretty happy with this selection. I've been waiting to listen to the new JEW for a while, and no one was selling it on campus. Couldn't find Valencia's "Dancing With A Ghost" or Jay-Z's book "Decoded," but otherwise a pretty solid trip.
Happy Birthday to me.

|Happy Birthday to Me
|So today's my birthday, and it was a decent day, despite the ache in my forehead right now. I think I'm getting sick...ugh.|
The tradition for my birthday is for my mom to take me to a music store and buy me whatever I want, so here's what I bought today:
Bob Dylan - Christmas in the Heart
Coldplay - Parachutes
Dashboard Confessional - Alter The Ending (Deluxe Edition)
Foo Fighters - Greatest Hits
John Mayer Trio - Try!
Paramore - Brand New Eyes
Say Anything - Self-Titled
Thrice - Beggars
Vampire Weekend - Self-Titled
they didn't have the new Avett Brothers or Boys Like Girls, but overall I'm happy with my picks. Some pretty big names here.
