A Musical Baton

Chip passed me the musical baton and he knows not what he does because I’m not as into music as some. I’ll give this a shot though.

Total volume of music files on my computer:
Only 300 or so MB on the PowerBook that I’m writing this on. Rather than listening to my own collection at work, I usually listen to Virgin Radio, Imagine Avenue Radio, or Prairie Home Companion archives via the net. Probably 90% of my cds have not been ripped.

The last CD I bought
A tie:

  • “Chutes Too Narrow” by The Shins
  • “Final Straw” by Snow Patrol

Song playing right now:
Nothing, I’m watching “Alias” while writing this.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me
This is a hard question, but here are a few:

  • “Run” by Snow Patrol
  • “Truly, Madly, Deeply” by Savage Garden
  • “Once in a Lifetime” by The Talking Heads
  • “Dos Gardenias” by Buena Vista Social Club
  • “Rock Your Baby” by George McRae

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:
I think I’m the last person in the blogosphere to get this, but I’ll give it a shot…

OK, that’s only two, so to complete the five, I’ll link to the first three of these I saw:

I’m awake now, and thought I’d also pass this along to:

I would add Dana, Erin, and Susan but they are not currently blogging.

Pardon the dust

I’m converting my homepage from the plain old thing into a fancy new WordPress-powered weblog. The old links are over there on the right under “Inside.” This is currently the default template, but I’m thinking of putting my own stamp on it, time permitting and given a cooperative muse. This look could last a while, or it could be gone tomorrow.
