Music Dork Meme
This is like a chain-letter in blog form. Thanks Nate for getting me to waste precious time I should be using to write semi-important speeches!
Total volume of music files on my computer: iTunes says 116 GB and 22,000 songs. I compress at a higher rate. (Yes, that's my new personal motto.) My iPod is the generation whose battery sucks and I only have 20GB so I wipe it every two or three months or so and reload it. Like Sizzla, I like the element of surprise.
Last CD I bought was... Au Pairs' "Sense and Sensibility" on iTunes, and a UGK Chopped and Screwed set I got on the road in Madison or somewhere. Probably a lot of other stuff too, but it's all joined the mess that is my office. Mainly in the last few months, I've been downloading O.P.P. (Other People's Post-Punk or Other People's Pre-Hip-Hop Funk or Other Pan-African Party Music)...
Song playing right now: Blackalicious' "Powers"! And it's playing all the time, even when I don't have the stereophonic equipment on, because I can't get it out of my damn head. Did I say the album was better than "Be" already?
Five songs I listen to a lot these days: Kaiser Chiefs "I Predict A Riot" (don't blame me, blame my involuntary neck spasms), Eddy Grant "Hello Africa (Live At Notting Hill)", Rufus & Chaka Khan "Papillion (Hot Butterflies)" (shout out to Dave Tompkins--keep your head up), Wgandakenya "Bridges", and Sonora Carruseles "Micaela" (thank you Lizz!)...Sonora Carruseles is sick.
OK, your turn:
+ andrea duncan-mao
+ carlito rodriguez
+ dan charnas
+ danyel smith
+ joe schloss
+ kandia crazy horse
+ miranda jane
+ wayne marshall
+ yancey strickler
I think it was just supposed to be 5. But I can't...well, you know already.
