I think I’ve finally got the list in order. I’m a little disappointed in this year’s list, as I only had about 17 albums to choose from. And my top 3 were fairly obvious. But c’est la vie. So without further adieu:
- Bon Iver - Bon Iver
- Drew Barefoot - Forrest Creatures*
- Dangerous Summer - War Paint
- New Found Glory - Radiosurgery
- Hellogoodbye - Would It Kill You?
- K.Flay - I Stopped Caring in ‘96
- The Head and The Heart - The Head and The Heart
- Owen - Ghost Town
- Manchester Orchestra - Simple Math
- Childish Gambino - Camp
* This album didn’t come out in 2011, but there was no way for me to discover it then and I’m making the exception just this once.
I’m going through the music I listened to last year. This is my top 98 albums according to my listening habits. I usually use this as a starting point as I make my top 10 lists for the year. Sadly, you’ll notice that there aren’t many that actually came out in 2011.

i created an application with twilio where you can record and submit (music) from a cell phone. zack was playing my uke and i was being noisy at kc. what did he want, man? is he a man or not, man? we may never know.
zack helps summarize my feelings about summer 2010 while also being the mascot for one of the coolest (aka most significant) days of my life. i am incredibly fortunate to have the friends i have. happy birthday, everyone.
The story of how I got my profile picture starts back in 2009. My friend Morty was working on a Facebook application for Bally’s Total Fitness, which required a couple models. I’ve had experience modeling for friends before, so she naturally thought of me when she needed to cast the male characters. There were about 5 or 6 different characters in all — each one was a stereotypical personality of the various types of people you may (or may not) see at the gym. After answering a couple questions in the Facebook app, you’d be presented with one of these characters that most accurately fits your gym habits.
So for a couple hours, Morty and Marta (the photographer) proceeded to dress me up as each various character. Out of all the photos taken, it was the Chatlete (Chat-Leet) that I felt came out the best. It was only meant to be used as my personal avatar until the next good photo of me came along, but it stuck and became part of my personal brand. Plus it was just too funny not to use.
Feel free to checkout the final Bally’s Facebook Gym Quiz and see some of the other characters. But for the entire set of photos, I’m going to make you work for it. It’ll be more satisfying that way.
