A list of the twenty albums I listened to the most, according to last.fm: Obviously, this list is not exclusive to albums made in 2008, though many of the higher-ranking albums were released during the past year: Robyn, Youth Novels, Volume One, We Started Nothing, Common Reaction, Santogold, and Velocifero.

Clue (1985)This movie is a classic of the broad comedy genre if you ask me. As a board game-to-film translation goes, I don’t know if one could hope for much better.
