Going Around.

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…

One reply on “Going Around.”

Hi Sunny, nasa Los Banos ka pa? Hanggang kelan ka nandito, kung luluwas ka ng manila baka pwede kitang ma-interview ? May ginagawa akong marketing paper na ang target ay mga pinoy sa US at may mga itatanong sana ako sayo at magpapatulong sana ako sa ibang data na medyo di ko alam kung san ko hahagilapin. I hope you’re not too busy at sorry hindi ko alam ang email address mo kaya sinulatan kita ng nobela dito… salamat!
