The clanking of crystal

Happy New Year!

I know I’m a bit late with this post, but of course, the craziness of this time of year has taken its toll. I’m a bit relieved that it is over, but a bit wistful as well.

So no year-end is never complete with out some List-Mania. I’m gonna type this out as it comes to me, and probably edit it later…

In the Year Two Thousand… Four

…some of my top movies:

  • Garden State
  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • Shaun of the Dead
  • Sideways
  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
  • The Incredibles
  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Shrek 2

note: In writing this, I realize that I didn’t get to see as many movies as I wanted to this past year. That’s prolly why you’re wondering why I don’t have some particular movies listed. Wah.

…my top albums:

  • Transatlanticism, Death Cab for Cutie
  • Summer in Abbadon, Pinback
  • Hopes and Fears, Keane
  • The Spine, They Might Be Giants (natch)
  • Franz Ferdinand, Franz Ferdinand
  • Future Soundtrack for America, Various Artists
  • Garden State Soundtrack

On that subject, I will add that I am attempting to participate in Rich‘s 2004 Mix CD challenge, which includes:

  • Best New Music of 2004 (IMHO, of course)
  • New to Me This Year

and I may take from Elke‘s book:

I’ll be posting those playlists later, for reference.

I suppose now that I’ve done the obligatory list entry, I hafta do the resolution post?

Heh. Maybe tomorrow.

One thought on “The clanking of crystal”

  1. Great choices for best of, especially the movies. Death Cab at the top for your music list was a good call too. I was introduced to them somewhat round about, Garden State Soundtrack -> Iron & Wine -> Postal Service -> Death Cab. And if you follow that logic, you’re really “in it”. Check the Shins or the Libertines if you haven’t. They’re a must for me.
