To The Current, thank you for including Travis, the soundtrack to Once and VHS or Beta on your list. Oh, and thank you for not having James Blunt (my apologies to his fans.)

In case you have a flying care, here is my list (in no particular order):
Romantica – America
The Hives – The Black & White Album
Travis – The Boy with No Name
VHS or Beta – Bring on the Comets
1990’s – Cookies
Lily Allen – Alright, Still…

I am officially declaring Travis as my Top Band I Found in 2007, thanks to Liat (who brought me to their concert.)

I think that sounds like the best schedule EVER!!! We can not forget to bring the Bailey's so we can get Grams drinking.

So you're going to show up for Christmas Eve buzzed, and you'll have your Grams get buzzed too? That's pretty great.

Did you and TBL behave yourselves at the game, or was it just luck that you didn't get arrested? :-)

Thanks for putting on your June list.

Merry Christmas!

I love the new Hives album. I rate it as the 3rd best album I purchased this year
