Married, moved, and getting it together.

Passing the musical baton

Andrew Phelps has passed me the music baton:

*Total size of music files on my computer:*

I work on three computers consistently, and I have iTunes libraries on all of them: the iBook has 18.17 GB of music, the Mac Desktop: 36.68 GB, and the Windows Desktop: a bit less than the iBook, but I’m too lazy to go look at the moment. Leah would say it’s all Frank Zappa. When we put it on Random play, there’s a whole lotta FZ, but it’s only 4.82 GB.

*The last CD I bought was:*

Eric Lindell – _Tragic Magic_
at the record release party in Hermosa Beach

I mentioned this before. It’s good stuff, but not really representative. On my shopping list are the latest Beck and Ben Folds, but not for a few more paychecks. Budgets are my friend!

*Song playing right now:*

Roxy Music – _Flesh + Blood_

In the mornings I like putting on Stew/Negro Problem. It’s good morning wake-up music. I like working to Ben Folds or Frank Zappa. Sometimes They Might Be Giants. Occasionally I’ll put on mixes, I guess more properly called “playlists,” I already made in iTunes.

*Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:*

Beck – _Tropicalia_ – free and fun and foreign
Ben Folds – _Army_ – man, that is some angsty regretful music
Frank Zappa – _The Ocean is the Ultimate Solution_ – musically, this fires my neurons
Stew – _The Great Leap Forward_ – the emotion in this song, the ennui, is really powerful
Morrissey – _Sing Your Life_ – hopeful, wonderful, optimistic – “any fool can think of words that rhyme”

Five Seven people to whom I’m passing the baton:

Al Abut
Binary Wolf
Chuck Hartley
Kelly Abbott
Leah Peah

I realize that’s actually seven. I’m worried nobody will answer, though I would really dig it if they answered.

I replied on my site….

I am insanely jealous of how much music you have.

Hey there! I filled out the meme over here. I like learning about peoples’ musical tastes – cool stuff. I think I’ll make an effort to listen to some of the recommended stuff!
