What will you remember most about 2005?
What I will remember most about 2005 is that it was the year the government and the president finally admitted to spying on US citizens.

Name one band you discovered (or rediscovered) in the past year?
I rediscovered Jimi Hendrix this year through the reading of the Charles Cross biography. Specifically I realized again what an amazing performance comprised the Band of Gypsys (Fillmore East) recordings and the Woodstock film.

What album has appeared most often in your iTunes (or CD Player)?
The two CD's that won my affections most in 2005 were: My Morning Jacket-Z and Dungen-Ta Det Lugnt.

What is your favorite performance from the past twelve months?
Favorite performances: Dinosaur Jr. at Lollapallooza in Chicago last summer and Gov't Mule at Warren Haynes' Xmas Jam Dec 2005. Runner up: The Mooninites from Aqua Teen Hunger Force performing a heavy metal version of “Porch Song” at Panic NYE at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
