alex trebek is a horrible, horrible man. he's an apparent misogynist who thinks he knows everything. we don't think you do, alex. but we still love the Jeopardy! ...and other things too.

it really is genius

as i continue to mourn the death of my beloved mixtape, i have found a single ray of hope in the genius playlist, brought to us by the itunes crew. it has been rocking my world for the past few days i tell you. it's magical: taking into account artists, genres, song tempos, etc. from all the music in your library, it makes badass playlists of varying lengths, perfect for mix cds or road trips.

here are the beginnings of my two favorite playlists as of late:

the "elevator love letter" playlist:
elevator love letter - stars
thursday - asobi seksu
tears for affairs - camera obscura
tonight i have to leave it - shout out louds
police and the private - metric
secret meeting - the national
postcards from italy - beirut
lights out - santogold
anthems for a seventeen year-old girl - broken social scene
popular mechanics for lovers - beulah
the recluse - cursive
the chills - peter bjorn & john

the "she's my ex" playlist:
she's my ex - all
cameage - descendents
blind - face to face
the wagon - dinosaur jr.
burning too - fugazi
grey cell green - neds atomic dustbin
into you like a train - the psychedelic furs
sound system - operation ivy
letter to memphis - the pixies
a good idea - sugar
sorry again - velocity girl
slack motherfucker - superchunk

so now, i think all of you need to go make some genius playlists so i can check them out -- thanks :)

oh, and i think everyone needs to ask merritt about her halloween costume.
