    Thanks for the list. I am always looking for new songs. Actually many of the ones you have on your MBA playists were added to mine. I really like Foster the People, but there are so many others.

    @Casey – I will have to check out Cold War kids.

    Another subject, I am fairly new to the site. I’ve read all your books (Love them) except Letters to Elise and the Zombie series. What is Honalee (sp?) going to be about:?

    So much good music on this list. <3 Arcade Fire. Rogue Wave. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. And of course, the late great sad beautiful Elliott Smith. Sigh.

    Okay…so this is kind of off the subject. But I just wanted to tell you that I’ve read one of your books (switched) and I liked it. But I absolutely LOVE your blog. I’ve read just about all of it I think. You’re very inspiring- and quirky. And you make me laugh. So thanks for all of those things. 🙂

  • The Civil Wars are amazing! Listening to their entire album non-stop.

  • My friend just got the Mumford & Sons CD and I’m impressed with how many of the songs I’m enjoying while on the ride to work and back 🙂
