Boy this wait for independent verification and whatever else is needed before diagnosis and treatment can begin is torture.
Here's a little exercise to get you mind off CCSVI for a few...
What were your top 5 albums, movies, books, documentaries of the decade (pick one)?
Reserving the right to change my mind
here's my list
Albums, in no particular order:
Beck - Sea Change (2002) & Beck - Modern Guilt (2008)
One of my favorite musicians of all time, if you have never given his music a shot you can't go wrong with either of these albums.
Drunk Horse - In Tongues (2005)
True rock and roll has been all but lost for the decade (arguably decades...plural) but here and there you'll find a smaller local band that just has that something special. These guys are the real deal.
MOFRO - Blackwater (2001)
I didn't get turned onto this down-home swamp band from Florida until a friend dragged me to see them at a small venue in Dallas about 5 years ago, and can say without hesitation one of the best live performances I've ever been to (Hmm, probably pushing 150 live shows in my life). If you like that tap your foot nod your head good-ol whiskey drinking soul music then give these guys a shot.
Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf (2002)
Pure energy, in your face rock and roll. Dave Grohl's drumming on this album just puts an exclamation point the unique vocal and guitar stylings of Josh Homme. An instant classic in my book and a must have for any lover of rock and roll.
