Ok so I have been working my way thru Rolling Stones Top 50 Albums of 2008 and #1 is Dear Science, by TV on the Radio and well… I don’t agree. I really want some one to explain to me why this album is so great. It may not be #1 for everyone but its the top 5 on all of the major lists.

and yeah… I don’t remember where I was going with that.

Her back up band have to be on average 20 years older then her and they where a hundred times more into it then she was. I think she noticed and got jealous or something about half way thru ’cause she started doing this like power fisting thing. it was sad. I looked at my roomate and was like “Um.. this song totally dosnt warrant the performance she is pretending to give it” and then…
