Once again, it’s the end of the world…I mean…it’s the end of a year, and we all love to look back somehow, to remind ourselves about the good things, good music, and everything good that happened during the whole year.
Before I’ve even started to write this list, I was thinking that in last two years I’m listening much less new music then I was listening before. Maybe it’s because I have less time, maybe it’s because there’s not a lot new music that satisfies, maybe it’s because of satiation, maybe it’s something else…who knows. Well, never mind, regardless of that, I still have some great records to share with you. Some new (from this year) and some old that I’ve recently discovered. Lists are below and there’s no any order at all (beside concerts – those are listed by dates).

For our current task, we need arbitrary number of people to vote for websites designs. We’ve made a simple web app that lists 500 of websites that need to be reviewed. Currently, there’s around ~142 websites left for review, so if you have few minutes it will be awesome if you can help us.
Application is hosted here: http://moonleerecords.com/lwd/
Task is simple. Click on a listed website (since preview is not working currently), check structure and design a little bit and vote between 1 and 10. There’s also few other instructions mentioned on website.
*** I know that it doesn’t make sense that arbitrary number of random people is giving votes, but hey, it’s like that and just the way it is ;)
