    I saw Passion Pit open up for Yelle just over a month ago. They were alright. Not bad, but if they are being set up to be the next big thing... dear Lord help us all.

    Hmmm, Lady GaGa is one good looking woman. I don't care for her music though. But at least she knows how to write.

    Wow, that's not bad. Like, wow. 11 out of the 20 (my count, anyway) proved true. I'm paying a lot more attention to this thing.

    yeah, the top 10 were quite prophetic.

    now what would be really interesting is if they had put it in a time capsule instead of publishing it. this is not nme, so I'm less inclined to think this list created the hype... but still, you have to wonder how much difference it makes.

    Florence and the Machine and Little Boots, think its gonna be a good year for the ladies! Florence is something special though, saw her at Leeds and the entire audience were just gobsmacked at first, everyone went ape shit at the end though!
