You Think You're Chocolate ...

... But you're chewing gum. -- Annie

Tony sent me a cd a few weeks ago along with a mix cd and some other fun stuff. I put the mix cd in my car (to play should I forget to bring my iPod) and left the other stuff on my desk. My desk ate all those things and I quickly forgot that they ever existed. Erik tided up and managed to salvage the other cd and put it on top of my stack of newly acquired cds. I noticed the new cd, Anniemal, on top and today decided to give it a spin -- Oh My God does this cd rock! I think my new favorite artist is Annie:


I can't believe it's taken me this long to hear this cd! Pitchfork named her song Heartbeat as the #1 single of the year while I would name her song Chewing Gum the #1 song of the decade. I know this sounds extremely hyperbolic but Chewing Gum is so infectious ... I can't stop playing it. And when I do finally stop playing the song it keeps repeating in my head (and you should see the video).

This will not be the last you hear of Annie ... I've only just discovered her ...
