Ich bin ein Music Asshole

Normally anything that seems even vaguely “meme-like” or quizzy — such as the incredibly tired “what kind of fungus are you?”-esque questionnaires (holy crap, I’m a north-facing fuzzy purple lichen!) — earns a wide berth from this beatnik, but for music, I make an exception. Señor Hicks heaved the musical baton my way, and who am I to resist?

Total volume of music files on my computer (thus validating the title of this post in a big way):

51.67 gigabytes. 9305 individual tracks. 27.1 days of music. I have a serious problem.

The last CD I bought was:

Ryan Adams & the Cardinals’ Cold Roses. Not bad, but suffers from a bit of “let’s make a double album!” musical padding.

Song playing right now:

Jah Jah Bless the Dreadlocks by The Mighty Diamonds, off of the Trojan Roots Box Set, CD 1.

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

Following the former (songs I listen to a lot), this is the five that seem to be getting a lot of iTunes time:

  1. Iron & Wine - Jezebel
  2. Calexico - Not Even Stevie Nicks
  3. Kathleen Edwards - Back to Me
  4. Femi Kuti - 97
  5. The Futureheads - Decent Days and Nights

Though I’ve been listening to Supergrass’ Supergrass is 10 quite a bit these days, too.

More statistical music nonsense is available on my Audioscrobbler page.

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:

Apologies for spreading the meme. I feel so venereal.
