1. re: Arcade Fire - see what happens when you listen to what I say about musics? Ka-ching!

2. re: Star Wars - who the hell prefers Revenge of the Sith to A New Hope? Glen Russell, your movie-ranking never ceases to amaze and perplex me.

Yeah, yeah I owe you all of my worldly possessions, my soul, first born child and a large slushie for introducting me to the Arcade Fire.

And lots of people prefer Sith to Hope!!! I swear I'm not the only one!!! Sith is amazing, it has it all adventure and excitment (even though a Jedi craves not such thing), Palpatine throwing the whole Senate at Yoda, Anakin getting flung into a pit of lava, the hilarious Darth Vader scream, and Sam F'n Jackson. How can you knock that one?

Ohh and Last Crusade is just better than Raiders of the Lost Ark, you are clearly wrong. May you drink from the wrong grail for thinking to the contrary.

I read "favorite spice" as in Spice Girl, and was thinking "Hmmm, Ginger Spice was really audacious in a good way, and broke up the band to do what she wanted, but Posh Spice married David Beckam (sp?) and remains an amazing English style icon to this day, althought i'm not sure why she chose to spend Paris fashion week with Katie Holmes.... tough call!" Then i realized where it was going. Cumin is good, but I'd def. put it way below Summer Savory and all the Clubhouse(TM) staples. And Caesar rimming spice.

John Mayer is great.

New Slang is awesome. I've had the album for months, and still have only learned like three songs.

How can Star Wars I and II (the new ones) even make the list? Both are tied for Christian-Hadenson-Is-A-Woman.
