My brother just sent me the Wikipedia page detailing all the problems that got solved by MacGyver. Thank you, internet.

The previous post gave me an idea; I was going to do my top 10 songs of 2008 so far. Thing is, I've not really acquired that much music this year, and of the stuff I've bought, maybe only half of it actually came out this year.

Still, the afternoon is slow (or, at least, slow enough to allow for random 5-minute bursts of iPod scrolling), so here's my shortlist.

In no particular order:

The Big Sleep, "Pinkies"
Tokyo Police Club, "Your English is Good"
French Kicks, "Abandon"
Dosh, "Don't Wait for the Needle to Drop"
Death Cab, "Cath"
Black Keys, "Strange Times"
Sigur Ros, "Gobbledigook"
