The year Two-thousand and Seven is now in the past. It was a good year for me personally but maybe not as good a year for many, many others around the world. Of course, everything is relative and, therefore, my year probably spans the spectrum from boring to fantastic depending on how your year went. My warmest regards to you and your past year whether it was filled with fame and success, riddled with misfortune, or happen to be somewhere in between. I have some New Years resolutions and a list of albums that made my favorites for this past year.

Note: Both are subject to change for at least three days.

My 2008 Resolutions:
  • Exercise more
  • Try something new
  • Increase volunteer work past KCRW (i.e. serving breakfast to the homeless or visit a retirement home)
  • Budget my expenses better
  • Write something (musical or non)
  • Listen more

Top 25 Albums from 2007 (in no particular order and definitely subject to change)
