Mamatulip’s Top 100 Albums of All Time — 39-30

I’ve gotten a lot of really great guesses as to which of these albums is the one I listened to while in labor with Julia, but so far no one’s nailed it. So keep your guesses coming – you can make your guess at any time during the countdown (personally, I suggest waiting until I’ve posted the entire list) but it must be in by midnight, EST, on the day I reveal my last block of albums– and you only get one guess, so make it count.

The winner(s) will receive a cool ass mix CD compiled of songs from albums on this list, and don’t forget to read all about a great composer!

The Value of The High School Yearbook

I had a great conversation with my nephew about the value of the high school yearbook. He actually has many different ideas about all high school things. I noticed in high school that, for many students, yearbooks  are either something to get every single year, or not at all. Some students buy a yearbook no matter what, but others completely refuse every year.

Why buy a yearbook?

Having a yearbook is a cool way to be able to look back on the year,  yearbook will be a nice thing to remember.

Plus, having friends sign your yearbooks is always fun. It’s cool to see what people have to say about you.

Radiohead have sold approximately 30 million albums as of 2008.
