Best Albums of 2000-2009

December 23, 2009 — 7 Comments

Well, I’ve found it easier to narrow down the number of albums for this Top100 Albums of the Decade, than to narrow my list of songs to 100. LOL I have around 350 songs at the moment. This is gonna be difficult… and also in every possible language xD

Anyway, I’m sure that I had to take out some albums to include other albums. It was all a very difficult process to figure out what to include… going from “do I really have to take this song out?” to “OMG, I really love all these songs from this artist!!! Which one should I choose!- So please, bear with me, and comment what to add.

Well, I certainly don’t keep track with Grammy Awards anymore, so should I be adding the event to my Award Season calendar? Or should I just wait to run into it when it’s airing?

Grammy nominations were announced last night, and I’m glad I’m not the only one wondering why are the Grammy nominations so similar to MTV, the AMA and every other music-related award show? Just take a look at the General Field nominees to see what I’m talking about.

I Feel in the Mood for Hanson~

I’ve been listening to their last 2 albums these past two days.

Is Hanson a guilty pleasure? Sure, I can’t tell everyone, but I do tell some people they’ve got to let those MMMBop days go. Honestly, you can’t judge a group by a song you heard in the late 90s. If you only let yourself listen to Underneath, and The Walk you would understand.

Plus, it doesn’t count if they liked MMMBop and then it got too popular for its own good.

Actually, Underneath Acoustic is pretty great, and I just happened to read that they also did a re-recording of their debut Middle of Nowhere (for their 10th anniversary)… what that means? That means mature Hanson still singing their old songs. Can you imagine Justin Timberlake singing Bye Bye Bye? He’s too afraid. LOL

Come on! Michael Jackson was still comfortable performing I Want You Back, and I’ll Be There.

I also read that a new album will be released next year… May, hopefully.

While updating myself on Hanson news, I found two interesting posts… In Defense of the Hanson Brothers, and Hanson in Sharp Form… – Here’s a couple of excerpts~

There’s little point in dancing around it: I like Hanson. Always have. I’ve also spent enough time listening to Slayer, Motorhead, Mayhem, Krisiun and the like to feel comfortable with my affinity for this trio of pop-friendly siblings.

Like keyboardist/singer Taylor Hanson, I wasn’t a Gilmore Girls watcher, but I read recently that one character on the show referred to Hanson as “the new Bee Gees.” Then it all made sense.

And the most interesting part of the whole post was this:

Then a friend who spent most of his time listening to Norwegian black metal told me he was impressed with songs that would eventually appear on Underneath (2004).

Also… did you know? *warning, Amy facts may seem weird* Taylor was my brother of choice. xD

The sites AfterElton.com and AfterEllen.com have released their Hot100 list this year, and out actors Neil Patrick Harris and Portia de Rossi top their respective lists. Also in those lists…

Portia de Rossi

Jennifer Beals ranking in #2, Lena Headey in #3, Leisha Hailey in #4, Tina Fey in #7, Katherine Moennig in #11, Rachel Shelley in #12, Kate Winslet in #13, Ellen DeGeneres making up the Top15. Clementine Ford made it to #18,  Ellen Page (21), Pink (25), Emily Blunt (34), Jodie Foster (39),  Natalie Portman (41, what? behind LiLo??? Geez), Penelope Cruz (56), Mary-Louise Parker (57), Cate Blanchett (66), Anne Hathaway (83), Rachel Weisz (84), Maryl Streep (87), and Emma Watson at 99.

LOL’ That was a long not-a-list~

Neil Patrick Harris

The dudes at AfterElton show you the proper way to show a list… from the bottom up. Starting with Emile Hirsch (88), Patrick Wilson (86), Nathan Fillion (85), Matt Damon (84),  George Clooney (73), Clive Owen (72), Ryan Gosling (65), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (61), Lee Pace (60), Gael Garcia Bernal (59), James McAvoy (57), Christian Bale (56), Ewan McGregor (48), David Boreanaz (47), Justin Timberlake (42), Daniel Craig (32),  Johnny Depp (29), Brad Pitt (18). And rounding up the Top10, there’s James Franco in #10, Hugh Jackman in #8, and Jake Gyllenhaal in #4.

Not many Asians now, is there? =o(
