"Library cards, rented faces, lying on the naked train" - Broken Social Scene, Backyards
alternate title: Making Up For Lost Time
Anywhere But Here - This glorified after school special proves I'll watch Natalie Portman in just about anything.
Batman Beyond - The Complete First Season (DC Comics Classic Collection) - The current Batman cartoon can't hold a candle to Bruce Timm/Paul Dini rooted work like this.
The Devil Wears Prada - The best thing about this movie is the one hour they spent on it on The View the day before Star Jones walked.
Greetings From Michigan - Not as good as Illinois but still pretty darn good.
Post Live and Homogenic Live - With these two albums, Björk joins Mary J. Blige, A Tribe Called Quest, Erykah Badu and Zero 7 as the artists whose entire official catalogs I own from b-sides to remixes.
Four Tet: DJ Kicks - I love four tet remixes but this compilation of music they like is bullshit.
Kings of Diggin' - Kon & Amir are nice but this might take the rare grooves aesthetic too far even for me.
Marvel of Marvin - Now, 4Hero knows how to put together a remix record.
Death Certificate - The album that finally quenched my gangsta rap thirst this summer.
Juke Joint, Vol. 2 - This might be my favorite record of the summer.
16 Blocks - Nothing special but a surprisingly satisfying twist on the buddy cop genre.
L.A. Confidential - I finally sat through it from start to finish and enjoyed it immensely.
Trees Lounge - A little plodding but I think this is the role that has made me decide that I like Chloe Sevigny as an actress.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Bloom is still boring but Jack Sparrow still rules and Keira Knightly is having great fun in the role.
The Avalanche - Because apparently there can never be enough Sufjan Stevens.
Blue Collar - A really nice album that is probably a year too late to make Rhymefest a star.
