A new year... a new decade...

...a new Doctor! But I'm not watching that until Sunday, so no discussing it...

Anyway, my New Year's Eve was great, up in KW again at J*&P&A's house, generating new Jersey Shore names for us all (I'm apparently H-Cat) and playing Wii Sport Resort (I'm getting one soon, maybe today). And also discussing our favourite albums of the last decade.

I have a sucky memory, as you already know I'm sure, so I used my iPod to collect these. My list will likely alter once I've had more time to think about it, but here's an initial list of 25.

If I had to have a top, it's a split between:

Captain (This Is Hazelville)
Postal Service (Give Up)

The rest, in alpha order:

Belle & Sebastian (The Life Pursuit)
Broken Social Scene (You Forgot It In People)

Tegan & Sara (So Jealous)
They Might Be Giants (No!)
They Might Be Giants (Here Come The ABCs)
They Might Be Giants (The Else)
Amy Winehouse (Back To Black)

Some others, no particular order:
