…but i don’t want to think about that right now. So without further ado….
Total volume of music files on my computer:
At home: ~1.5 GB (I just wiped my hard drive to install OS X Tiger)
Last CD I bought:
Israelites – The Best of Desmond Dekker
Song playing right now:
“Road Movie to Berlin” by They Might be Giants
Five songs I listen to a lot these days:
“She Sang Hymns Out of Tune” by Harry Nilsson
Nilsson doesn’t get anywhere near the credit he deserves. The man is like a perfect amalgam of McCartney & Lennon.
“Thank You For Sending Me an Angel” by The Talking Heads
An amazing way to start off their greatest album. Like some sort of insanely exuberant miltary dance. Always inspires me.
“Post-paint Boy” by Stephen Malkmus
“You’re the maker of modern minor masterpieces for the untrained eye.”
Lyrics that perfectly summarize the way I feel after my first year out of architecture school.
“John Cage Bubblegum” by Stereolab
John. Cage. Bubblegum. need I say more?
“Chimney Sweep” (live) by The Decemberists
Their concert left me abandoned in some apocryphal Victorianesque English town. Great on the cd, EPIC when performed live. This is recorded from a concert broadcast on NPR’s “All Songs Considered.” If any fellow Decemberists fans want a copy, email me.
