Viral Blogging 

I love memes. If I was better at calculus, I would be in grad school right now studying memetics. But, since I'm not, I participate in blog memes. This one comes to me from John of the Beaverhausen Blog. Here goes.

1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer?

I have about 13 GB, with around 2500 songs. I still listen to lots of CD's - so mid-nineties I know. I have no iPod, so I don't bother much. I also tend to delete stuff pretty quick when I get sick of it.

2. The CD you last bought is:

Album: Rufus Wainwright, Want Two. I heard it in a store, and it surprised me. So I bought it - I like supporting severely wired music.
Single: I have no idea what the last CD single I bought was. It probably involved a remix of some track or other during my trance phase.
Download: The Kleptones - A Night at the Hip-Hopera. I know I"m late to the game on these guys, but this album is fucking awesome.

3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?

St. Etienne - B92.
4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.
I'm also gonna go with two lists here...first the often listened then ones that mean a lot to me. Ones in the second list would mostly end up in the first too, but I'm making two lists because not all of them do.

- April March - La Nuit Est Là. A sweet groove, and seriously subversive lyrics. What could be bad?

- Yoko Kanno - Yo, Pumpkin Head. Makes me wish I was a better dancer.

- Serge Gainsbourg - Requiem pour un Con. Makes ma laugh every time.

- Self - Suzie Q. Sailaway. Catchy, fun, slightly evil. Especially the toy version.

- The Future Bible Heroes - Doris Daytheearthstoodstill. Pure brilliance in kitschy, pretentious fun form. Like the rest of the album it's on, it never gets old.

Now, ones that have, for some time, meant something to me:

- The Magnetic Fields - Papa Was a Rodeo. Fucking awesome song, for starters. And it hits perilously close to home.

- Tori Amos - Hey Jupiter/Putting the Damage On. Yeah, it's cliché, I know. That album came out at just the right time and those two songs (which always go together in my mind) fit a little too perfectly.

- The Clash - Spanish Bombs. Picked more or less at random from the catalogue of songs I love. The Clash had a huge influence on my growing up.

- Minor Threat - Straight Edge. DC Punk/ska/hardcore, always under Ian MacKaye's influence, was pretty formative for me. I was never 'straight edge' (even a little), but I kinda like the idea, or at least where it comes from.

- David Bowie - The Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud. Perhaps liking this song at such a young age should've been a hint, hmm?

5. Who are you going to pass this stick to? and why?

Jeff - Because he needs to post more, and likes good music.
Natalya - I like stuff she listens to.
Travis - He also needs to post more, and I wonder about his music.
