· favorite artwork
not a strong year for artwork on covers, but I'd say MF Doom "MM..Food"
· favorite labels
· biggest surprise
- musicwise I'd say a group out of Seattle called Blue Scholars
- outside of music everything was too predictable
· biggest disappointment
my favorite rappers continue to fall off and soon their nose will from all the coke. Peace Mos Def, also Kweli and Meth
· books I read
Game Informer Magazine
· movies I saw
the only one that really matters is "Napolean Dynamite"
· websites I visited
- (such good reviews, if you dont know, check the Cunninlynguists "Southernunderground", Robust "Potholes In Our Molecules" and Typical Cats "Civil Service" reviews. Now that's good writing.)
· foods I ate
- Papa John's pizza
- Subway
- Phad thai
- Jack In The Box
· things that made me smile
- bubb rubb

· best moment(s) of 2004
too many good moments
· worst moment(s) of 2004
too many bad moments
· what I'd like to see in 2005
- everybody calming down about what's dividing us and realizing that politics aren't the begin and end all
- I'd like to see people use their brain instead of following a movement in music and to stop hating others because of insecurities
· what I don't want to see in 2005
- the apocalypse
- Dipset fever
- the supreme court banning sampling
- my other favorite rappers falling off
· hip hop in 2005 will be...
continue to get better and better while people will say that it's getting worse and worse
· my new years resolutions
- release my CD's
- break down new music barriers
- continue to be positive
- finish college
- eat a big hoagie
- beat Grand Theft Auto
- be a good person to those around me
also thanks to tadah for running a good site and giving lesser known artists like myself a chance to be heard. Peace
