Tag! I'm it.
1. Total amount of music files on your computer:
None. Computery and internety stuff for the most part is so confusing to me that I haven't taken more than two seconds to consider figuring out music files. (And I'm also detered by the experience with Kazaa that completely fucked-up my co-op's computer in Peterborough.) The only time music is emitted from my computer is when I log on to a website that plays it automatically (the Urinetown site almost gave me a heart attack once!), or if I'm watching a DVD.
2. The last CD you bought was:
Oh, think think think... I usually buy CDs at shows so that should help me remember... Was it Gentleman Reg's latest? No, it musta been Lal's warm belly high power, though a large percentage of CDs I've purchased in the past year have been from Three Gut Records. (As my friend Andrea says, "Support Canadian culture and we'll all have stronger bones and teeth.")
3. What is the song that you last listened to before reading this:
Oh, embarrassing!!! "Be with You" from Beyonce's Dangerously in Love. (What does she mean when she says naughty girl...?)
4. What are your five favorite songs and why do they mean so much to you:
Of all time? There's no way I can come up with that on the spot. How 'bout these days? That'd be:
"Scoundrel Babes" from Shine a Light by the Constantines. It's great for rockin' out.
"For the Widows in Paradise; For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti" from Michigan by Sufjan Stevens. Oh, I just told you why last week (see here).
Neighborhood #1, #2, #3 or Haiti from Funeral by the Arcade Fire. They are so fuckin' fun and smart.
"White Cloud" from Corners by Lal. The beats and melody are great (I am so bad at describing music).
"kid don't go big song" from Clear as day, the darkest tools by the Sea Snakes. It's got a super-sounding chorus.
5. What 3 people will you pass this baton on to and why?
Paul at Big Cedar Co-op because he just started the blog there, and I wanna know what he's listening to;
Allison from Domestically Challenged because our blogs are so similarly named, and...
Birdsong, who just wrote me about receiving the knit zine yesterday.
Gawd, that took so long to write with all those links! Are any of you listening to any of these bands? They're certainly worth checkin' out - especially if you're in Toronto, as this is such a super city for music. You may have to put down the needles for a night, though I'm not the only one who's been seen knitting at rock shows recently (Sophie?!!).
