The Nickel

The following playlist is mostly alternative/pop based. If you like the opening track, buy the Foster The People CD and prepare to be thrilled. It's excellent.

A friend who happens to be a professional photographer was looking over my photography recently. I wasn't fishing for compliments by any means, but I was curious to hear his thoughts.

"You sure do like patterns, don't you? Got issues? I'm betting you do!"

I'll admit... that's funny. And, hey, it's also true. I'm a little O.C.D., but mostly in the cute sort of harmless ways. No, I don't tap my foot five times before locking the door, nor do I have to wash my hands every time I touch something. But what about this?

Obsessive Need for Order or Symmetry: -- An overwhelming need to align objects "just so"

-- Abnormal concerns about the neatness of one's personal appearance or one's environment

-- The need for symmetry and total order in one's environment

Ruh roh!

If you've ever stepped into my home, you're probably grinning right now. I'm not *THAT* bad, but then again, pointing out that I'm not *THAT* bad causes the need to define what *THAT* really means, and quite frankly, I'd rather not.

Instead, I'll mention a piece of Rob-silliness that no one other than myself would ever notice: I never use a song in a playlist here once I've used it previously. This playlist, for example, is a pop playlist. I could have added Yeasayer, because THAT album is brilliant! Or Phoenix. Their last album was brilliant too! But I've beaten both of those to death here, and there are no repeats. That's my rule.

SO... this playlist is obviously made up of songs I've never posted before. And when I make a Valentines Day playlist, I'll be kicking myself for having used Love Out Of Lust by Lykke Li. But there are no repeats. That's my rule.


...it would take too long to explain.
