My First Meme

Megan McMillan has handed off to me a music meme. Should be a nice change of pace from the WTC bashing. So, here it goes.

Total volume of music files on my computer:
At work: ~4 GB
At home: ~8 GB
Last CD I bought:
Bought 3 at the store last weekend:
In The Mud by Split Lip Rayfield
Faith (Deluxe Edition) by The Cure
A Brilliant Mistake by Tsunami
Song playing right now:
"Penny Reel-O" by Eric "Monty" Morris
A catchy ol' ska number from This Is Reggae Music: The Golden Era 1960-1975 box set.


"Monkey Man" by Toots & The Maytals from the same collection, among many other places.
Five songs I listen to a lot these days:
"Pink Love" by Blonde Redhead
One of the most indescribably beautiful songs I've heard in recent memory.

"Carnage Visors" by The Cure
The 28-minute reason I bought the Faith reissue. A soundtrack to an animated film that's mesmerizing even without the images.

"13" by Split Lip Rayfield
One of the reasons I'm taking banjo lessons.

"Those Pockets Are People/The Partisan" by Electrelane
7 minutes of Awesome Rock.

"Broken Chair" and "Still At Home" by Luna
Sean Eden's great songwriting contributions to Luna's swan song Rendezvous.
And now it's my turn to pass this meme along to a few others. How 'bout it Mr. Soy, Jimmy, and Marcus?


  1. Great answers! I love Luna, and I'm looking forward to checking out some new tunes, thanks to you : )

    Have fun in NYC!

  2. Mmmm... Carnage Visors. An extended hypnagogic dream. I've actually fallen asleep to that one (a lifetime ago; the 15-year-old obsessive Cure fan). Interesting what AMG had to say about it: "...a sprawling funeral march that gradually fades in and then out after half an hour, as if it's only a segment from a piece that's being generated until the end of time." Well, it does have a beginning and an end, but I sure get what they're saying.

  4. That's funny (strange not ha ha) that you're currently listening to ska. The Last CD I bought was The Best of Desmod Dekker.

    could there be a ska revival coming?

    i'll post the rest when i get home today!

  5. Well, I have been having a little bit of a ska revival myself... I recently finally got around to putting all the rest of my old cd's into itunes and have subsequently been enjoying a whole lotta ska...

    Not much Desmon Decker, but some Skatelites and Bim Skala Bim though.

    I will get my gear up in the morning.

  6. John, for reasons you're well aware of, Mr. Soy's posting is going to be limited this weekend. I'll try and respond to the meme next Tuesday.
