The Spinto Band's Best Things of 2007 - "Jon's Jawns"

ALBUM
St Vincent's Marry Me - this came from a recommendation by a friend named Jon who won a Roxanne DVD in a game of Bingo. Like Jon, it's a winner.

SONG

Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" - She has dibs on all the best pop songs. I danced to this song with a girl and then we made wild passionate love in a meadow. Then we drank homemade apple and carrot juice.

FILM
Not so sure I understand it, but No Country for Old Men is so beautifully badass it was stunning.

BOOK
George Saunders's In Persuasion Nation - A collection of short stories that turns bitter social criticism into delicious pie.

DISCOVERY
Cape York- where people are either barefoot or wearing flip flops, but rarely anything else.

INVENTION
Flip-flops with bottle openers in the bottom of them. Clever sort of thing that makes you say, "why didn't I think of that."

YOUTUBE VIDEO
