but she sure talk good, and she move so fast

Last weekend a discussion ensued between my friends Chris and Hannah and myself.
A heated debate over the best Radiohead record developed.
My money is still on OK Computer, electronics be damned.

we came to dance with the girls with the stars in their eyes

Classic status
If you haven't watched Freaks and Geeks yet, what are you waiting for dummy.

I slept on the newest Plies record, Definition of Real. I'm enjoying it so much more than Real Testament. Real gritty and I can even stand it when he drops a jam for the ladies. Something I can't say for most of his other peers so far this year *cough*T.I.*cough*

bumpin some Stones over djembe drums

Man, this was good. Richard Jenkins is excellent. I just hope the Best Actor category isn't too saturated so that he misses out on a nomination.

wanna go out tonight, wanna find out what i got

Great first episode of the third season of Friday Night Lights. After they hastily wrapped things up from the second season, this episode got rolling. Some really great scenes like Buddy trying to connect with Tami in her office and dropping a "Clear eyes, full hearts..." and her just shutting him down. The one scene that really got me was the racquetball one at the end of the episode. It was tied up in all the right drama the way this show did consistently in its first season.
Here's to hoping they keep getting better.

I want to urge you again to check out Gaslight Anthem's record from this year, "'59 Sound." A great, blue collar (I guess) punk record. A whole mess of working man tunes wrapped up in some quick punk jams and slow burner ballads. Really one of my favorites so far this year.
Here's the title cut from the record.
