Uh oh, I'm not gonna have competition with them, am I? :wink:

Just at the end of Origin of Symmetry by Muse. I believe Coldplay is next up.

Snow Patrol, Eyes Open. Good album to sleep/wake up to.

I don't know what I'm about to listen to. I have to see if I can sync to my MP3 player through Ubuntu. If I can't, I can probably just copypaste it. I want some music, because I have to do some mind-numbing chores.

Interestingly, last night I had a dream where I was walking down a street, watching the cracks in the sidewalk, listening to The Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar", Fleetwood Mac's "My Little Demon", and a few other songs. Except they had light, cheery, peaceful backing instrumentation. Weird.

I'm giving Arcade Fire's 'The Suburbs' a listen.

The Colour and the Shape.

I'm still not convinced Foo Fighters are as good as some of my friends claim but there are some damn good songs on there.

If I watched Fox News for 17 minutes, I'm sure my blood pressure would go up significantly.

God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

The Black-Eyed Peas playing at the Super Bowl.

I'm with you there, I have a lot of their stuff and some of it is brilliant but some of it I can take or leave. I like Dave Grohl's vocals and I like the slower acoustic side of 'In Your Honour'.

Shoop Da Woop. For a song all about internet trolling it's really quite good.
