Keep Your Baseball Cards — I’m Collecting Music

Look everyone! I’m still alive, and I haven’t completely forgotten about this blog!

Sorry I’ve gone an eternity or two (closer to two at this point) without updating anything. I’ve kind of been busy — papers to write, midterms to prepare for… you know, college stuff. As a result, I haven’t really been in the mood to write much lately. College would be so much better without all that crap, wouldn’t you agree? (And yes, I know that would completely defeat the purpose of college. This does not change the fact that midterms and essays suck ass.)

Anyway, my birthday was a few weeks ago and I turned — gulp — 23. (My youth is all but officially over and I don’t even feel like it’s started yet. Can I get a do-over on this whole “life” thing? No? Well, that sucks.) I got some presents — as of September 27, 2009, I officially became multi-instrumental when I got a bass guitar — and some money to spend. Which means it’s time for another Colin’s Collection post! Yay!

I dont know how to use Photoshop, so just pretend this is my face and COLIN FRATTURA replaces JIM CARREY and the tag line reads HOLY CRAP, THATS OLD.

I don't know how to use Photoshop, so just pretend this is my face and "COLIN FRATTURA" replaces "JIM CARREY" and the tag line reads "HOLY CRAP, THAT'S OLD."

All the albums I’ve recently added to my collection can be found after the jump. Check it out! THAT’S AN ORDER, DAMMIT!

Top 5 Songs I’d Play At A Party

(originally featured on the Oct. 3, 2008 show)

I will be the first to admit that I don’t listen to a whole lot of “party” music. Or at least not in the traditional sense — I don’t really have much hip-hop or dance music in my collection, which seem to be the most popular party genres. But if I were to pick some songs to play at a party, these would be the ones I’d choose.
