Death Cab VS Arcadia

Had a fight with my flatmate after I found Death Cab For Cutie albums on his itunes that he hasnt told me about! Bastard. Then he proposed that Death Cab were nowhere near as good as his new favourite band Arcade Fire. And i have to say I do like them very much.

Both bands are nominated for the same Grammy - Best Alternative Music Album. Death Cab for Plans and Arcade Fire for Funeral. They are up against Beck with Guero, The White Stripes with Get Behind Me Satan and Franz Ferdinand with You Could Have It So Much Better.

Red Cups

Starbucks have a great site with all the info and fun you could want leadfing up to christmas (well maybe not all the fun you want) but some of it. Called The Red Cup each day there is a new tip or game for people to play. There are travel tips, gift ideas and short videos to watch. All in all its a very nice promo that has got me going back for more. I am addicted to the game on November 16. Cant get past level 3...not sure if there are anymore levels than that!!

Death Cab For Ever


This is what I want for Christmas (amber do you want to get one too and share the shipping??).

I pretty obsessed with films, so you can be assured if a film is on this list and i havent seen it already, I probably wont see it. Thats just the way it goes.

Donnie

At 10:10 pm tomorrow night (the 7th) Donnie Darko will be on SBS. This film came in at number 5 in the My Favourite Film voting. And if you are one of those unfortunate people who havent seen it, please watch it!
