Come on, feel the Illinois

NPR's Bob Boilen is so nice. I know cause I've met him in real life-and got to work on a project organizing the serial numbers of his CD library for a month. But he's also nice because this Christmas he gives us listeners top 10 favorite albums for 2005 along with samplings of said albums, samplings of beautiful, melodic journeys.

hey speaking of "sixteen military wives" by the decemberists, you should check out the video in which colin meloy plays the united states in a model united nations. it's great: http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2670055?htv=12

sufjan stevens ALSO wins most beautiful/utterly creepy song of the year with his song about serial killer john wayne gacy (it's sooo pretty but really disturbing so be sure you're ready) which you can hear on this page:
