I think its 18 in california but I'm just wonderin cuz if i get caught then I can be like "well legally im allowed to watch it" and they'll be like "k koo"

I got Animal Collective's "Here Comes the Indian" last night, you should too. The quality of the music will make up for the fact that it's a 7 song album and costs $9.99.

Also get some ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail Of Dead.

I loled at your mention of Hoosiers. They were my ex-gf's favorite band. I thought they sucked.

As far as 2008 music goes, I'd get Nouns by No Age or Microcastle.
#5
if you're not already into okkervil river, check them out. black sheep boy, specifically.
#6
Tiger and The Duke or The Ocean and The Sun by The Sound of Animals Fighting.

Videohippos. They're like shoegazers having a good time.

I just heard them recently they were cool. Worth checking out.

If you want some cool orchestrated classic pop music go with Parenthetical Girls' Entanglements. Great album. In my top 3 of 2008.

Other bands to check out:
Jana Hunter
BARR
Why?
Animal Collective's newest album, out soon
My Bloody Valentine

I'm a fan of MBV and Animal Collective (more or less), but which Why? album do you think I should get after Apolecia?

^It depends, if you like the sound they have on Alopecia, go with Elephant Eyelash. If you're into experimental hip-hop, listen to the stuff from when it was a one man project consisting of only Yoni.
#15
Elephant Eyelash is amazing, but so is Oaklandazulasylum. i would get EE first though.

maybe check out Grouper. her newest album, Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill, was really great.

gang gang dance - saint dymphna is quite good.

actually I've been looking for something else by them. Do you have the album they did with Harmony Korine, SSAB songs?

edit: I ask because it's out of print
