alex: Oh dear. Shameful indeed. Amended

j said...

i don't know if this list seems eccentric because i'm American or because i listen to britney spears exclusively.

London Preppy said...

j: I have nothing against Britney. In fact, if Blackout had been out this year instead of last, a couple of songs would have been in the top 20. I just don't like the new one very much

Ja said...

Did you move to Australia to extend your summer look into 2 seasons?

Is this numbering system your out from listing Scarlett as your number 1?

Oldyeller said...

You shore do love your music, but nary a Tony Bennett song? (I kid)You look contented, its not raining, and your sunburn appears to have dissipated. Hope everything goes your way in 2009.

Neil said...

Your twin brother is cute. I know this isn't the LP we've come to know, because this gentleman is 1) tan, 2) happy, and 3) clearly not hollow and empty inside.

Trybaby said...

ohhhhhhhh I get it, you are in Australia. :D That's why you posted this so early. You're in the future.

Gomer said...

OMG! The blogger formerly known as LP in my neightbourhood. How was the rooftop cinema? [insert grin]

Keep us mere mortals updated so we can stalk you better.

Happy New Year

I've just finished reading this blog from the very beginning and I say, you should have a big come-back and stop making people miss you.

Allen said...

what brand of sunglasses are those???

London Preppy said...

se: Very nice of you to say that. It was a lot of hard work though and I felt too much under pressure too. A break has definitely been good

allen: Unfortunately they are Dior

Natalie said...

Do I get to take the credit for the introduction to Cut Copy?

I'll email you my list. Its pretty depressing though, clearing living abroad has affected me more than i thought!

Darren said...

Hey perhaps an odd question, but do you have a knee condition called osgood slatus?

London Preppy said...

darren: Yes

Best thing Cut Copy have done is their Fabric Mix CD (Fabric 29).

I've stopped going clubbing because I can't find anywhere that matches that... (and because all the London clubs are shit now)

thebewlaybrother said...

Just a thought - you should publish your chart as an iMix on iTunes?
