I'm So Embarrassed

So Annastazia has passed the torch to me and I'm very, very sorry to say that I'm going to drop it and let the light go sputtering out.

This meme is about music. Which basically I don't listen to. I used to listen to lots of music. I listen to music in the car. I listen to the cookie-cutter songs on the radio and crank it up during any 80s tune. But I don't listen to music on my computer.

I also have this thing about CDs. I put one in and play it over and over and over and over and over until (as Kevin says) the voice of God himself comes down from the heavens and gives me the message that it's time to put a new one in. I am not kidding about this. In college I listened to Kenny Loggins' The Real Thing at least once a day for two years. Thank god I had a tolerant roommate.

Therefore, this is going to be a very boring meme.

Random 10 (Winamp shuffle):

I'd like to help ya here, but as I said, I don't listen to music on my computer, so I don't even HAVE a Winamp to shuffle (well I suppose I have Winamp, but I don't use it). I did install iTunes yesterday with the intention of bringing more music into my life though.

1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer?
Zero. Zip. Zilch. And any other Z word that represents none. I don't have a single song on my computer.

2. The last CD you bought is:
I really couldn't tell you. Kevin buys CDs for me! The last one I received was Sarah McLachlan's latest (couldn't tell you the title of the CD however). Oh, I did buy some tapes for Kevin that I thought were going to be CDs--the David Sedaris Box Set. But that's not music.

3. What is the song you last listened to before this message?
One of the four songs they play over and over again on Star 98.7

4. Write down five songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.
Remember what I said about listening to CDs over and over and over again? Well you'll never guess which CD is in my car now:
1. Unraveling--Deb Talan
2. Ashes on Your Eyes--Deb Talan
3. How Will He Find Me?--Deb Talan
4. Saturn's Light--Deb Talan
and just for the heck of it, I'll throw in a non-Deb Talan song
5. Southern California Wants to be Western New York--Dar Williams

5. Who are you gonna pass this stick to (three persons and why)?
Gosh, I don't know. Who wants it?

This is so funny, Shelby. I will wear out a cd by listening to it so much and then just when J. starts to like it, I proclaim that I am sick of it and find another one. Oh, and he's a big fan of Dar Williams too.
I do want to see what you get from iTunes though! Gee.. more Deb Talan? ;-)

Hey Shelby! we listened to more than just Kenny in college - there was also the Lion King soundtrack and the Animaniacs "State and their Capitals"
