In the year 2009 - teh bestest

I had to make these "best of 2009" lists for this rock mag that i frequently contribute to, already a couple weeks ago. So i thought, why not post them here too (as a slightly edited version). Since our dudes at Top Billin just made their annual lists full of goodness.

So here goes, if any of ya'll are interested. And to be supa clear, this list was made in, like, 20 minutes and especially for a pop/rock mag. So it kinda leans toward quite poppy stuff, indie and hit singles. Not much rap/reggae/dancefloor shite/remixes/bloghouse craziness in here, sorry dudes. If not a lot of stuff i would play at clubs so much, here's some good pop shit, nevertheless. AND I also will retain the right to change my mind about any of these songs/albums, since tomorrow i will disagree with all of my dumb last minute picks.

My friend and I were recently talking about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
