My Favorite Albums of 2009...

I used to get really into analyzing the world of media from year to year, but I don't get so into anymore. However, I figured I would go ahead and let you know what my favorite albums of 2009 were.

1) Thrice - Beggars
2) New Found Glory - Not Without A Fight
3) Crippled Black Phoenix - 200 Tons Of Bad Luck
4) Say Anything - Say Anything
5) Third Eye Blind - Ursa Major
6) Brand New - Daisy
7) Two Tongues - Two Tongues
8) David Crowder Band - Church Music
9) Appleseed Cast - Sagarmatha
10) Propaghandi - Supporting Caste

The honest truth is that there are probably a lot of great albums this year I missed and on any given day with an exception of the top 3 albums or so, the others can switch places on the list.

These are my favorites. I'm not claiming that they are the best albums of the year, just my favorite.

What were some of your favorites albums from this year?

Hello Hello...

Before we begin, let me ask... Would you rather live without a vehicle or without a cell phone? Leave your answer in the comments.

On to my update.

So, I guess it has been a while since I have given you anything worth reading. I apologize (to my two faithful readers, ha!) What can I say? I have been slam packed busy this year. I made a terrible decision to do school non-stop this year without breaking for the summer. Though now I can look back on it and be glad that I did it, it made the summer months ridiculously stressful and pushed me so close to burn out that I would still say it was a bad choice. Thank God for a loving family, group of friends, and church family who encouraged me through it and understood when I dropped the ball so often on other things.

But now, classwork is done. All of it. No more classes for my Master's degree. It is a liberating feeling. I still have a comprehensive exam to take (I'm aiming for February or March) and an internship to complete (shooting for the fall) before I officially have the degree, but this still feels so good.

2010 is going to be a busy year it seems. I got a handful of things going on.
-Of course, there is the school internship.
-I'm working with Dave Herring on a secret project (shhh...)
-Taking a trip to Indonesia to teach at their Bible college with a couple of friends in May. This is huge, and I will write about it more specifically at a later date.
-Hoping to get a guest roll on iJames Play House (not really, but you need to check this out and get weak for a minute.)

Here's to hoping I blog more (does anyone really hope for that?)
