1) "Funeral" by Arcade Fire.

Boxer - The National
Seldom Seen Kid - Elbow
Lungs - Florence and the Machine
Midnight Organ Fight - Frightened…"
"Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane over the Sea
DJ Shadow - Endtroducing....
At Folsom Prison - Johnny Cash
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco
Control - Pedro the Lion

Something to Write Home…"
I couldn't possibly describe myself in the little space allowed. I'm a writing, vlogging, blogging, musical, jamming, tech, web 2.0ing, nerdfighter. I just love the whole nerdfighteria concept. I've been watching since around april, and I never looked back. There was always a new video, and I loved it. DFTBA :)
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
My favorite book of all time is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. That book changed my life, and my perception of science fiction. I read it in the spring of sixth grade, and I fell in love with Sci-fi after reading it. The impact it had on both my writing and reading are monumental. Other than Ender's Game here are some more epic books.
All of John Green's Work (Duh! I have an autographed Happy Margo), all the Dan Brown books, The Pendragon Series (I had the pleasure of growing up in Halla as well as at Hogwarts), The Redwall series (I never really got into Harry Potter until maybe book five, at which case I had to read the earlier books. I read six and seven, and I have read one and two, and know the plot of the rest due to movies. Anyway, Redwall was my Harry Potter. The battle of Redwall in the first book blew my third grade self away), The rest of the Ender Saga, including the Bean Quintet, Catcher in the Rye (The sardonic tone of the writing in the book, in addition to the varying amounts of humor make this another one of my favorite books), Old Man's War by John Scalzi, The Maximum Ride series (though The Last Warning was so dissapointing, I was ashamed to be a Max fan, Max was okay though), Not Twilight, The Discworld series (I've only read two, but I need to find a place to rent them, my local library only has the ones I've read), and last but certainly not least, my favorite series of all time, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. You can't go through life and not read these books. Douglas Adam's is so hysterically funny, I still read them and laugh at them even more.
Music is quite an interesting category. I'm a huge fan of two types of music, progressive rock, and jam bands. In terms of Prog rock, I love bands like Coheed and Cambria, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, and Rush. But if you move into jambands, I'm into Phish, the Dead, Lotus, Moe., Umphrey's McGee, and STS9. I'm also into more conventional guitar rock. I mean who doesn't have a little Zeppelin and Clapton in their library?
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
