That there musical baton thingy-ma-bob
May 19, 2005 | Jabberwocky | By Shawn Parker
Well, surprisingly enough I got passed the musical baton that’s been making its way around teh intarweb. It started out that Joey was passing it to me as a stolen item but then this John Oxton character went and made it official ;p. I have to admit that there was a sense of fun associated with being a rebel, but I guess I’ll have to put down the hair grease and put the leather jacket away. I’m keeping the ‘55 chevy though.
So, without any further bad humor, here it goes:
Total volume of music
43.88GB, 11238 songs, 31 days. Most are encoded at 128k AAC. All this resides on a file server and I keep about 13GB on my 20GB iPod.
Last CD that I bought
The last CD that I bought was Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge by My Chemical Romance (iTMS link) from the iTunes Music Store.
Song playing right now
Paranoia! Cha-Cha-Cha by The Soviettes.
Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me
- Posession by Sarah McLachlan
- Yellow Ledbetter by Pearl Jam
- Cecilia by Simon & Garfunkel
- I’m a Fake by The Used
- Bright Eyes by Bonnie Tyler (yes, you read that right)
Five people to whom I’m passing the baton
As I track back the lineage of this particular baton I find it fun to go through and see what other people’s musical tastes are. I’m also finding a few bands to go back and get a better listen to as I start to Google some of these new bands that have been listed. I hope everybody that I’ve passed it to participates as though it means nothing at the very least it is interesting to be able to track the lineage of a “virtual chain letter” (as John P. labeled it).
