The blog post that wasn't
This morning on the way to work I was listening to a news story where they drew a conclusion from a set of facts that had me thinking "Huh?" because I came up with something completely different and I figured I would write about that tonight. However, I've completely forgotten all the details of that news story. Later on at work, I had a string of callers with interesting user names and I thought that might make a good post, but the only two I can remember now are "jacksporn" and "ilovecameltoe" and without the other user names to go along with them, I can't remember the story I was planning to write. I'm sure throughout the rest of the day there were plenty of other interesting or amusing events, but it's all just a big blur at this point. So instead I will do the music meme posted by billy the other day.
1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer? (same as Rob)
375 albums,4474 songs,20.96 GB, roughly 12.3 days of music. About half of the collection (not counting vinyl stuff).
2. The cd you last bought is:
I have no idea. It's been a long time since I felt I had the extra funds for a CD, even from the used bin.
3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
Nail Bomb: Religious Cancer
4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.
1. My Darkest Hour by Megadeth
2. Why I'm Here by Oleander
3. Ten Years Gone by Led Zeppelin
4. I Don't Need Love by Sammy Hagar (I'm embarrassed to admit it)
5. Toxicity by System of a Down
5. Who are you going to pass this stick to? (3 persons) and why?
No one, Rob's already picked the same people I would.
Here's another one:
Your favorite song with the name of a city in the title or text:
Dallas, written by Jimmy Dale Gilmore. Not sure who is my favorite artist on this one, maybe Joe Ely.
A song you've listened to repeatedly when you were depressed at some point in your life:
My Darkest Hour by Megadeth
Ever bought an entire album just for one song and wound up disliking everything but that song?
Too many to list.

BirobiDJan by The Austin Klezmorim
Your least favorite song on one of your favorite albums of all time:
Jet Pilot on Toxicity by System of a Down
A song you like by someone you find physically unattractive or otherwise repellent: (echoing Rob here)
Thirsty and Miserable, Lemmy Kilmiester (Motorhead) on a benefit CD of Black Flag covers for the West Memphis Three.
Your favorite song that has expletives in it that's not by Liz Phair (again, I agree with Rob):
Binge and Purge, Clutch..."C'mon MOTHERFUCKER let's THROW DOWN...over and over again
A song that sounds as if it's by someone British but isn't:
The only thing I can think of is I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night by the Electric Prunes.
A song you like (possibly from your past) that took you forever to finally locate a copy of:
Since I only buy CDs out of the used bin, it takes me forever to locate just about anything I like.
A song that reminds you of summer but doesn't mention summer at all:

Summer Breeze by Seals and Croft
