Call it my RSVP to sarah’s challenge…:

  1. Total amount of music files on your computer:
    • KetelOne @ 3.09 GB (mostly mixes)
    • Rabbit Pod @ just about fully pregnant w/ 9.08 GB
    • Detonator-3 @ 34.72 GB (miscellaneous melodies and bountiful beats)
  2. The last CD you bought was:

    Double duty! Mogwai’s Young Team and PJ Harvey’s Uh Huh Her albums were picked up in the fall during our vacation. We don’t really buy too many CDs these days… (Alas! Alas!)
  3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message? Deliberately?

    Sasha’s “Xpander” getting mixed out of BT’s “Mercury and Solace”. Not really deliberate, hit “random play” in iTunes this a.m. and left it at that.
  4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.

    Probably going to do a combination of songs and/or albums down in this portion of the list… Seems more fitting and/or appropriate for some reason.

    1. Like Sarah, Pearl Jam’s Ten but also some material off Vs. They conjure up all these memories from the High School period that take me all over the emotional map. I get this weird deja vu of sitting at my desk designing Shadowrun campaigns. Very creepy.
    2. K+D’s remix of Depeche Mode’s “Useless”. I love the original but the Kruder & Dorfmeister remix is what got me into DM in the first place. Plus, I have this distinct memory of it playing off vinyl during a Trueschler Deep After Hours After Party session of some kind. Am I remembering a hallucination? Possibly. Pete, I’m looking in your direction.
    3. Boards of Canada’s “1969” — brings back memories of Tuesday night’s at Sonar. Bloody Ninjas and shit.
    4. “T.V. II” by Ministry. More High School thru early-College era flashbacks. Soothes the inner-sadist.
    5. David Holmes’ “Don’t Die Just Yet” — or so iTunes tells me. I did this song in a substantial way. Cinematic w/o being overly-dramatic; hip and fresh while not being all that new either.
  5. Who are you going to pass this stick to? (3 persons) and why?
    1. Pete b/c he’s already introduced me to so much good music. But I see he’s already done this.
    2. Creighton b/c he’s always got some interesting recommendations as well.
    3. And A since I’m always curious what she’s into these days.
