So you want to be as cool as Alexander Skargard ?

Ok, this is what Alex said were a few of his favorites things from 2008 in his latest interview !
So you better know about all this stuff if you want to be as cool as he is ....

Favorite CD - Glasvegas a great Scottish band from Glasgow.

Best Movie - 'Let the right One In' ( Swedish vampire movie -this is still playing in US movie theaters- I LOVED it) more info HERE and HERE

Best to Read "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar WAO" by Junot Diaz- The titular Oscar is a 300-pound-plus "lovesick ghetto nerd" with zero game (except for Dungeons & Dragons) who cranks out pages of fantasy fiction with the hopes of becoming a Dominican J.R.R. Tolkien. The book is also the story of a multi-generational family curse that courses through the book, leaving troubles and tragedy in its wake. This was the most dynamic, entertaining, and achingly heartfelt novel I've read in a long time.

Favorite to Watch on TV - Mad Men ( I guess you can't say your own award nominated TV shows: ie True Blood and Operation Kill)

Best Concert: Vampire Weekend, are an American indie pop band from New York, formed in 2006.

Daddy's Gone from Glasvegas ( Geraldine is also great !)

Oxford Comma from Vampire Weekend (my favorite)
