don't judge me, ok?

0. ok, so what if I voted for coin laundry.. don't judge me, ok? :P
1. I have no idea of the names of tracks on the xx album, I just chose
the two of the list..
2. Ditto silversun pickups except I chose the ones with the song title
in the lyrics..
3. Darn I forgot to vote for that Jonsi song.. and prob 5 others I
will think of later
4. Blood for #1 by a ridiculous margin, not kidding.

very special glockenspiel...

know your possum (or, update on the deceased marsupial)

Is your possum the size of a small cat with big and slightly pointy ears, clever eyes, a coarser, greyish fur and a blackish tail? Brushtail. Is your possum smaller with mousy ears, sad eyes, a browner and more fluffy fur, and white or possibly bald tipped tail? In that case you have a Ringtail.

I guess Townsville possums are mainly the brushtail kind. I did not recognise the dead guy.

Now practise. Can you correctly identify these possums?

Hints: Sad eyes? Mousy ears? (It's tricky because you can't see his tail..)

Hints: Big like a cat? Black tail? Pointy ears?

Disclaimer: I am not a biologist. I spend most of my time indoors.

(Thanks Lynn.. :)

silversun pickups - swoon

My current favourite band. And they so so remind me of the
stationwagon. Seriously I can't not imagine it's drew playing the
guitar on that album. I swear some of the riffs are his. Please listen
to this album if you know what I'm talking about. If you don't then
it's a bit pumpkins/placebo/vines-ish but more smooth and delicious
