I got curious about twitter and created an account.

Here is some info about twitter.

My Favorite Albums

I got this idea from a facebook application... you know, those things that everyone hates.  Anyways, the application gives you a bunch of different categories in which you can choose your 5 favorites.  One of these categories is "favorite albums".  I filled mine out and then decided that I wouldn't be satisfied choosing just 5.  That seemed too few.

In making my list I considered a few criteria.  The first of these factors that I considered I will refer to as "completeness".  This means that if I were forced to listen to the entire album I wouldn't find myself fighting the urge to skip a significan number of the songs.  The album needs to be consistently good.  Second, I considered how "influential" the albums were in my life.  If an album had left a lasting impression on me, enough to be remembered years later, it would be more likely to make the list.  Finally, I decided it would be smart to exclude compilation albums.  "Best of" cd's that pulled from many different albums would not be considered.

So here they are, my top 10.

1. Danse Macabre - The Faint

2. Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer

3. Bleed American - Jimmy Eat World

4. Plans - Death Cab for Cutie

5. Deja Entendu - Brand New

6. Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

7. Wet From Birth - The Faint

8. You're A Woman, I'm a Machine - Death From Above 1979

9. Infest - Papa Roach

10. Darkest Days - Stabbing Westward

Some Updates... in Bullet Format

Sorry we have been such slackers in the blogging world. We always say we will get better, but that doesn't usually happen. Here are some things we have been up to lately.
  • I had a birthday and turned 23 years old. We ate pesto pasta, opened gifts, and Landon took me to a ballet on campus. Debbie (Landon's mom) was in town and ate lunch with us and had a sleep over with us. It was a great day!
  • Both of Landon's parents have visited. It is always fun to have family in town. My mom and my sister and fam are coming this week as well.
  • We have had lots of parties lately! This weekend we had some of Landon's Florida friends over for games and treats. We also had a Y-Be-Fit party with all my friends from work. After everyone left at about 9 our house was so quiet. We decided it was too quiet and invited Marcie and Kathryn over to play games with us.
  • At the end of the semester I am going to do my thesis proposal... that is the plan anyway. I have a lot of work to do in the next month!
  • We have a new favorite game store. You can rent games for a fee and the amount spent (up to $5) goes toward a game to purchase. Killer Bunnies is our favorite right now, thanks to Gameboard Revolution.
  • We hung up wedding pictures in our front room... finally!
That is all I can think of right now. Stay tuned to a more exciting post, maybe even with pictures.
