Whacked by a musical baton

baton records label

Mike Davidson has handed me the baton in a social-networking type, musical relay among web publishers. Here goes:


Total volume of music files on my computer:

12.5 GB– All from actual Purchased CD’s. It’s not that I’m opposed to P2P sharing, I just never did it. I got lazy about encoding, and still have a lot left to import.

The last CD I bought:
Goin’ Through the Changes by Zumpano

Song playing right now:
None, but since I am at work, I think that I will put on The Biz by The Sea And Cake. This is music to write HTML by. Unobtrusive and keeps you zippin’ right along.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:
(really, I just thought of some songs that I like)

  1. Be My Wife — from David Bowie’s amazing Low album.
    Glitter of love — Versus.
  2. I am a Tree — Guided by Voices.
  3. 16 Shells From A Thirty-Ought-Six – Tom Waits.
    A Testament to Youth In Verse — New Pornographers
  4. Buick MacKane — T.Rex
  5. Atomic Kid — Versus

For a more complete picture, here is everything on my hard drive at work today.

Just missing the cut: The Big Banana from The Price is Right Game show. Pretty swingin’ stuff. (Thanks Mike)

I want to hand this baton to some friends who are really into music and have been influential to the formation of my own aesthetic, but it seems that none of them are maintianing blogs. So I will bother some strangers:

    Sea and Cake rocks.
    Good choice in music my friend.

  2. JunaD Says:

    I have never heard of any of those songs. I’ll have to go to iTunes and check them out. Thanks.

  3. Charlie Says:

    Sea and Cake is very nice, I also love GBV and David Bowie. Haven’t listened to any New Pornogrophers but the A.C. Newman album is awesome. Good Music :D

  4. Hon Says:

    How did you manage to type out the entire list? Is there an easy way to do it in iTunes?

    I exported the iTunes library as a text file, then imported that into Excell, deleted some rows, then exported the spreadsheet as an HTML table.
