Happy New Year, all! I imagine most of you are probably rather drunk (or hung over!) at the moment so I'll try to keep this short and sweet!

I had a relatively chill New Year's Eve celebration. Just mom and me at home on the couch with Kathy Griffin and the Silver Fox (i.e. Anderson Cooper). I have to say I adore them. The constant bickering was too cute for words. Anderson gets so adorably ruffled by Kathy's brassy ways. :D


In other news, congratulations to Ben Gibbard and Zooey Deschanel on their recent engagement. I didn't even know they were dating but I can't think of a more adorable couple.


Oh and I was reading through my music blogs the other day when I noticed this on one of Pretty Much Amazing's year end best-of lists:

7. Pretty. Odd., Panic at the Disco - Maybe its not the best idea to place a Panic at the Disco album so high on a year-end list. But Pretty. Odd. is just fun. Every track is pitch-perfect, old-school pop-rock. Urie’s melodic whine somehow finds a way not to annoy me, but to please me. Try not bobbing your head or singing along with him on “She’s A Handsome Woman.” Brandon Ross’ vocal contributions don’t hurt either, notably on “Behind the Sea.” And even the slower songs can hold your attention and make you feel more emotion than your typical top-40 band can. Just listen to “Northern Downpour” or “She Held the World.” Corny as they are, these songs do make you feel something. And they only make up a small portion of the album - they’re nothing compared to bouncy tracks like “Pas De Cheval” and “That Green Gentleman.” So while Panic may not have the same indie-rock sensibility that, say, Deerhunter has, they sure are more fun. I dare you to listen to “When the Day Met the Night” and not smile.

Brandon Ross? Are they serious? Way to fail rather epically, PMA. *headdesks forever*


Anyhow, I hope you all had a fabulous New Years and wish you a wonderful 2009. Let's hope it's better than 2008. :
