A Musical Baton

Argh! There’s like a weblog-chain-letter thing where you have to give details about your music habits. It was passed to me by Chris Clark of decaffeinated.

Total volume of music files on my computer

0 bytes.

Because, well, for some weird reason I just don’t trust myself—or the DRM gremlins—not to lose it all. It doesn’t feel permanent. (I grew up with albums, by the way, so my subconscious is a couple formats behind.)

The last CD I bought was

David Bowie, Reality

Song playing right now

The TV is tuned to a cable news channel, for I am a news junkie.

In my head, though—there’s always a song playing in my head—is “Bankrobber” by The Clash.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or mean a lot to me

“Call of the Wrecking Ball” by the Knitters.

“London Calling” by The Clash.

“Vincent Van Gogh” by Jonathan Richman.

“Take the Skinheads Bowling” by Camper van Beethoven.

“If I Should Fall from Grace With God” by The Pogues.

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton

First, my apologies. I decided to help make sure fellow Mac developers get the curse baton.
