That Music Thing

Mike pointed his baton (that sounds dirty) and here’s the results.

1.) How much music on the hard drive? I have no idea. 20 Gigs? I put about 3 quarters of my cd collection on my iPod. And I keep adding.

2.) What’s the last CD you bought? Architecture in Helsinki’s In Case We Die. Meh. I don’t love it. I’ve had more luck with the new Fourtet record that I technically didn’t buy.

3.) Song playing right now: Night of the Living Dead Misfits. Like I said, most of my music is on my iPod which I like to keep on shuffle.

4.) Five songs that I listen to a lot, or mean a lot to me:

Hüsker Dü’s Read World from Metal Circus–In high school this was one of the first SST records I bought.

Dinosaur Jr.’s In a Jar from You’re Living All Over Me–Again, another high school choice. I loved this band. Loved. After Green Mind it was all downhill.

Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song from Led Zeppelin III–one of my all time favorite band. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve been listening to them since 7th grade and probably makes fun of me.

Palace Music’s Cat’s Blues from Viva Last Blues–My first Will Oldham record. Took me almost 3 months to get it out of my CD player.

Crap, I can’t think of a fifth song. I already said a Led Zeppelin song. How about Black Star by Radiohead off The Bends? I hated them for a while. Then I was forced to listen to them repeatedly. They grew on me. I now count them as one of my favorite bands.

5. Where does the baton go next? Uhm, I bet this thing has already lost some steam. Anyone want to volunteer?
