ID cards clearly a brilliant idea

"The government was forced to admit the most fundamental breach of faith between the state and citizen yesterday when it disclosed that the personal records of 25 million individuals, including their dates of birth, addresses, bank accounts and national insurance numbers had been lost in the post, opening up the threat of mass identity fraud and theft from personal bank accounts." from the guardian

this obviously means that all the proposed data that will be collected for id cards will be perfectly safe.

random idea of the day

albums should contain extra features just like dvd's. why aren't there making of documentaries, band commentaries and the like on every cd. would make me want to buy more cds.

Band of Horses - Is There a Ghost

top 10's of the year - albums

i realise its only november but there isn't going to be much else but greatest hits and compilations released for the rest of the year and i was bored.


in alphabetical order

arcade fire - neon bible
band of horses - cease to begin
battles - mirrored
biffy clyro - puzzle
the cinematic orchestra - ma fleur
explosions in the sky - all of a sudden i miss everyone
feist - the reminder
radiohead - in rainbows
the strange death of liberal england - forward march!
thrice - the alchemy index
UNKLE - war stories
