Here we are again, kids. The CDP's choices for the Top 10 albums of 2007. As always, the list is compiled only of albums that I have purchased and were released in 2007. I am not a music critic, I am a music fan, and the list is personal preference and opinion only; not a chance to boast my hipster cred. Ready? Let's do this.

Hey I heard of some of these bands!! Okay, just one.

I forgot my iPod at home, so it's Pandora for me . . .
 
I have my iPod, but I still think I'll be rocking Pandora today. For a free service, it's sure going to put a lot of cash into iTunes' pocket.
 
Sure, you toss MY albums in the middle of the countdown cuz you haven't really heard them... :)
 
I heard all three of those albums! Furthermore, I used a very specific, weighted scientific formula that measures and calculates.....


I drew 20 albums from a hat.
 
That's the same way I decide what pants to wear!
 
(to be said with a stuffy accent)

"Drawing pants from a hat!? The absurdity!"

(guffawguffawguffaw)
 
Silliness.
 
So...um...how about that, uh, weather? Sure is chilly.
 
Out here we have assumed the position and are braced for impact.

I believe I will be plowing tonight.
 
I heard that Zubaz are making a comeback...so that's pretty cool.
 
ROXBURY, Conn. (AP) ― A school custodian's impromptu after-hours karaoke performance prompted a police response when a teacher thought she was being threatened over the loudspeaker.

State police say a teacher at Booth Free School barricaded herself inside a classroom Wednesday when she mistook someone singing a Guns N' Roses song over the public address system for a threat.

She was working after hours and thought no one else was in the building. Then she heard someone say over the loudspeaker that she was going to die.

Six troopers and three police dogs showed up and found three teenagers, one of them a custodian at the school, who had been playing with the public address system.

Police say one of them sang "Welcome to the Jungle" into the microphone. The song contains the lyrics "You're in the jungle baby; you're gonna die."

The teenagers were cuffed on the ground for about 15 minutes while police investigated. They were released after being questioned and state police Sgt. Brian Ness said they did not realize the teacher was in the school and will not face charges.

"These things happen," Van Ness said. "Luckily it was humorous. You kind of have a gut feeling. As soon as we got there, we spoke to the three kids. They understood."
 
That is hilarious!!!
 
I think that teacher watched too many scary movies.

I guess it's back to Al Gore and Michael Moore for her.
 
With so much potential, that is the LAMEST Fark headline ever.
 
I submitted it with "Welcome to the bunghole."
 
"Karaoke can terrify more than just a bar full of drunks"

"Teacher calls police after feeling threatened over PA, Imus in custody"

 
"I know what did last afternoon"
 
^you
 
An Imus joke! Nice!
 
I grow weary of this conversation. Let's talk about something else.
 
Maybe you should link to my sweet-ass book review?
 
That was a pretty sweet book review.
 
Thanks, Julia! I'll have it linked here all fancy-like tomorrow!
 
...But until then, I'll just post it right here!

CLICK HERE AND DIGG IT!
 
If you have a Digg account, you really need to go there and Digg the living crap out of that review.
 
Come ON! This day is sooooo long, and this lack of hilarious CDPeon contribution is making it go even slower. Amuse me, monkeys!!
 
Okay, you've gotten drunk with power. You need to calm down.

This countdown is sucking the life out of everyone, due to lack of CDP-original content. I needed this time off to recharge my batteries and work on end of the year stuff, but SCREW IT, I'M PUTTING SOMETHING NEW UP TOMORROW.

W00t. Word of the year.
 
I'm a rageaholic...I can't get enough rageahol.
 
Here are some conversation starters:
-Midgets: actually human?
-Who is Xavier Roberts, and why did he think children were made of cabbage?
-Hippies: why won't they just go away?
-Does anyone else hate Paul Bunyan stories as much as I do?
-The Weekly Reader convinced me as a child that California would fall into the ocean before I was an adult. Did it convince you of anything?
-New Rambo movie: WTF?

There...that's enough fodder to keep you going. Now make this happen! Come on!
 
MIDGETS - Did you know that if you kick a midget in the balls, he turns into 9 squirrels?

XAVIER - He's the reason people have gotten used to tramplings at Toys-R-Us.

HIPPIES - They're dead to me on every possible level.

BUNYAN - American Folklore is awful, and I've studied the hell out of it.

READER - It convinced me that Zip, Nip & BJ were probably sharing a bed.

RAMBO - Where does this take place? Vietnam?
 
What is this Nip & BJ? Doesn't sound like it should be in the Weekly Reader...
 
Did you know that if you kick a midget in the balls, he turns into 9 squirrels?

Is that why we've had all those squirrels on the porch recently?
 
You two are wierd.
 
Sorry, it's from Patton Oswalt's 'Midget Facts.'

"If you lose a fight to a midget, you become one. At the beginning of time, there was only one midget, and now look around you."
 
Sorry I'm not entertaining you with my hilarity. I'm just try to avoid end of year best of lists. End of year lists are kinda like a children, lots of people love them but I'm happier when there gone.
 
Don't start me on midgets.
 
Oh, you're already started. Let's hear it.
 
My history with little people is well documented from Binky the Christmas Midget to the Hottest Midget in the World but you may not know that I'm unable to eat when there's a midget in the room. I was going to ask the Hottest Midget in the World out but I couldn't take her to dinner so I missed my chance.

P.S. - She wasn't just hot for a midget, she was really hot just very tiny.
 
Do you have a picture of this Short 'n Sexy lady?

Whereas I've studied computer geek folklore and love it. I mean, wow -- crazy.

this is a favorite of mine:

I'm scared to check that link. There are an awful lot of consonants in the URL.
 
I have no picture, our friendship was short lived...HA!

Also, no poker with midgets: http://www.betheboy.com/2007/04/kicking-little-ass-when-we-are-home.html
 
I gotta say this here, because all you indy hipsters will understand.

Mrs Hoss is out Christmas Shopping and I'm home with Little Hoss. And I do what I normally do to get her asleep -- I let her lay in our bed and watch TV. The only cartoon that is on is on the My Network TV network -- i.e independent.

A little while ago my daughter walks into the living room and says, "You got to come and see this." My first thought is "What did she destroy now?"

We got into the bedroom and she pointed to the TV. Why, the station is playing one of Cursive's music videos!

It's great to be in Omaha sometimes . .
 
I like that she knew you'd enjoy it. I love Cursive; they do Saddle Creek and the state of Nebraska proud.

Apart from that, stop making fatherhood seem so damn neat. I'm trying not to think about that.
 
Sorry I was MIA yesterday, I went straight from day job to night job.

Midgets - Not sure how true this is, but I've always heard that the town of Walhalla, SC has more midgets per capita than anywhere else in the US, due to it once being a regular stopover for circus folk when it was on break form the tour.

Even if it's not true, it's a hell of a story, and there are a lot of midgets there for it to be so small of a town.
 
Well, I now know where I'm going for my 26th birthday.
 
Haunchyville, WI?
 
This reminds me of that African village where everyone was a twin.
