I voted in Three Imaginary Girls' Top 100 Northwest Albums of 2005 poll--all of my picks were Seattle artists (A Frames, Caro, Common Market, Swampdweller, and Kinski), which is mostly down to my misreading; I might have chosen some Portland or Olympia or other bands if I'd thought about it more. Still, I like my list and find TIG's poll intriguing. There's a fair amoung of overlap with the 2005 Seattle year-end mixes I co-compiled for the Weekly--numbers 7, 13, 18, 20, 24, 36, 41, 42, 48, 50, 53, 63, 64, 75, 84, 87, 91, and 92 of the Top 100 are represented in the mix, or 18 of 38--a higher percentage than it might seem, since several tracks we chose weren't on albums (MP3s and singles figured prominently, especially with dance stuff).
