What a good citizen am I!

Today, I voted AND filed my income taxes. Let no one say I haven't done my civic duty! {g} I'm a little annoyed that I owe the state some money, since my one job didn't withhold any state taxes. I guess that's what happens when you work out of state, though.

unclemilo did this survey, and while I've done some others like it, I don't think I've done this particular one before, so I might as well do it now. And if I HAVE done it before, well, no harm done. It's sometimes hard to tell the difference between these things.

1. TMBG
2. XTC
3. Frank Black

THREE OF YOUR FAVORITE SONGS: (at the moment)

How to Win a Fight With a Conservative is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Social Justice Crusader, also known as a rights activist. You believe in equality, fairness, and preventing neo-Confederate conservative troglodytes from rolling back fifty years of civil rights gains.




I have to say that, based on my initial listen, I quite like the Pipettes' album. It's really catchy in a retro way, and also has a sense of humor behind it as well (as evidenced in the name of the group, really). I also enjoy the Mountain Goats' The Coroner's Gambit, although Tallahassee remains my favorite of the albums of theirs that I've heard. I think that, as much as it pains me to admit it, I might like their more recent music more than the early lo-fi stuff. Really, though, they're not THAT different, and I think I should listen to all of their albums before making that decision for sure.
