Different strokes. I don't rate Modest Mouse as highly as some...:p

I like both :) The only reason I didn't list them in my albums of the decade is because I only really started listening to them too recently to judge.

I'm annoyed I missed out At the Drive-In. Maybe I should have put more than a days thought into this...

If it's not laminated yet, you're fine to change.

I don't get it...

I think you actually know my girlfriend unless there is another drummer called Christy from a band called Edgar Prais. Edgar Prais were awesome. You still going?

There was a big ol' thread on this board a coupla days back which centred around The Strokes record being number one...guess you had to be there kinda thing.

Aye, there's a fair ol' chance. Initials FS? She's good people, in my English Lit class. I'm pretty sure you and I musta met someplace down the line.
