Besides the fact that they have an bad ass name We Were Promised Jetpacks are a great Scottish band. Their full length album came out last summer entitled These Four Walls but I just got around to checking it out a couple of weeks ago. They had an EP come out a couple of months ago called The Last Place You'll Look that I haven't heard yet but i soon will. I'm a little bummed that they won't be touring anywhere near me in the near future but I'm keeping them on my radar.

I was searching for something on an external hard drive the other day and came across The Get Up Kids album Something to write home about. The Get Up Kids were one of my favorites back in the day, they were practically local boys from nearby Kansas City, Mo. These guys are arguably one of the fathers of “Emo” even though they hated the label. This album was a big jump in a more pop direction from the punkier Four minute mile their previous album(which inexplicably I don’t have). I vaguely remember it being one of those “these guys suck now” situations that indie bands sometimes find themselves in. My contention is “How can you hate on a band that uses a Pee Wee Herman line for a song title?” End of discussion.

111. Jennifer’s Body (2009) “She’s evil, and not just high school evil.” Pretty good movie and what a body it is.
112. Taking Woodstock(2009) “A generation began in his backyard.” I liked it. There could have been more boobs, come on it’s a movie about hippies! Is Eugene Levy an acting genius?
113. Resident Evil (2002) “A secret experiment. A deadly virus. A fatal mistake.” Mila kicks ass.
114. Resident Evil II (2004) “You’re all gonna die.” Still kicking ass.
115. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) Great film, how have I not seen this?
116. Orgazmo (1997) Good lord that’s funny and filthy.
117. The Man with Two Brains (1983) Not very funny, poor Steve Martin.
118. 2012 (2009) “We were warned.” Makes me thankful that I know a pilot.
119. Where the Wild Things Are (2009) Blargh!
