musical meem

musical baton handed off to me by kit_ping

1. Total amount of music files on your computer?

Well, the total amount of sound files of any kind on my computer is 19.5 GB, but they're in a perpetual state of not-completely-sorted-ness.
The music files I have that are alphabetized by artist total 13.3 GB, and the songs and comedy bits in miscellaneous genres total 4.19 GB.

2. The last CDs you bought were...

The B-52's - Anthology
Several Heather Alexander and Uffington Horse albums at Further Confusion
Oh, and some mp3-only TMBG albums: The Spine Surfs Alone and They Got Lost

3. What was the last song you listened to before reading this message?

DJ T3PO vs. the Beatles - Martha My Dear (Prison Living Version). No idea where I got that. It's not very good, either. The best Beatles mashup I've heard is "Beatles Mashup Medley" by Hank Handy (plug plug).

4. Write down five songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.

These are all in the "often listen to" category rather than the "mean a lot" category.
1. R.E.M. - Electron Blue
2. Cake - Dime
3. TMBG - Fun Assassin
4. XTC - The Mayor of Simpleton
5. The B-52's - Song for a Future Generation

5. What 3 people are you going to pass this baton to and why?

Hmm. How about youngvanwinkle, timmowarner and vakkotaur.

Warner Brothers created Loonatics
One day when up to their usual nontricks.
The characters are all pointy parts.
They stab my eyes like darts.

    artistic just like THIS


6. Are you going to do any more memes that ask you to specifically name who you want to pass them on to?

No. The more I think about it, the dumber an idea that sounds. Vakko has already said what he thinks of it; Mintaka and Timmo, you guys can do it if you want to, or not; I don't care one way or the other.

Edit: It's the issue of the century: Is Vakko Taking This Whole Thing Too Seriously? Eh... maybe. I dunno. More seriously than I am, anyway. I still think it's a dumb idea (and not fun-dumb, just dumb), but I'm not as vehement about it.
