Sent to me by Dan:
Total volume of music files on my computer: I’m not at my home computer, but I have 2284 songs on my iPod (I think it’s about 15 gigs).
Last CD I bought was . . .: M.Y.M.P.’s Versions and Beyond. My Japanese noise / black metal-listening self has an oddly soft spot for this Filipino guitar-and-vocals acoustic duo, which I’ll be featuring in a Crash Course in Pinoy Pop mp3 download series one of these days. (Sorry about the Wes Anderson uploads — I’m on a 28.8K modem and can’t upload anything until I get back to SF.) I haven’t listened to most of the two-disc set yet — some of the covers seem rather superfluous — but there are already at least a couple of tracks that are better than the originals (Kylie Minogue’s “Especially for You” and Ogie Alcasid’s “Sa Kanya”).
Song playing right now: Just the awfully loud hum of my parents’ Pentium III. But the last song I heard before going to sleep was a cover of Brian Eno’s “Golden Hours,” by Ida. (A former housemate of mine used to go out with Liz Mitchell, so that’s — what? — three Kevin Bacon degrees?)
Five songs I listen to a lot these days: Teenage Fanclub’s “Ain’t That Enough,” Puffy’s “Hi Hi,” M.Y.M.P.’s “True Colors,” Parokya Ni Edgar’s “Harana,” and M.I.A. & Diplo’s “Pop.”
And I’m supposed to send this to two people? Hmmm…
