Well I know it’s been a bit overdue, but it’s time for part one of Joel’s Year in Review!
First off I’d like to start by saying that I’m going to commence this writing by beginning to tell you of my intention of revealing to you the bands I got into in 2002 that I liked the most! Here they are:
1. The Notwist
2. The Anniversary
3. Death Cab For Cutie
4. Pedro the Lion
I would put The Fire Theft at number one of course, but they have only released two songs as of today and so I have to save them for this year, which I’m sure they will top along with other bands such as Sigur Ros, The Decemberists and whatever else is slung my way.
Next I’d like to take a break and update this later.
Ok now I’m back and I’m going to fill your ears with ringalinging. This magic moment, while your lips are close to mine, will last forever….! Like that? I really want to watch the Sandlot right now… which brings me to my next list… my favorite movies from the theaters in 2002! Here they are:

4. Punch-Drunk Love
5. Waking Life
6. Minority Report
7. The Royal Tenenbaums
