hay! ive got a great idea! why dont we use this thread to keep track of all of the new music we hear in 2008!

allright well all of that ridiculous bullshit aside, i figure ill go ahead and post what i have listened to this year FOR REAL this time. in case you werent sure, i have NOT listened to that much rascal flatts. on the contrary, i am strangely given the urge to slit my wrists lengthwise (no cries for help here) everytime i am unfortunate enough to pass by somebody blasting these moronically overhyped shitkickers's fuzzy warbles at an audible level. So now that we all know how i feel about rascal flatts, i suppose i will list the shit that i listened to for the first time in its entirety here. please forgive me if i dont organize these month to month. they are all just a big blur now. i will try my hardest to not list anything that i heard in 2007, but did not make my journal on account of my absence . :?
