I’m only doing this silly thing because Josh asked me to.


OK, so Josh23 has requested that I do this silly survey thing. Here we go:

  1. Total volume of music files on my computer:
    [wally@datacide ~]$ find /mp3 -name "*.mp3" -print | wc -l
    [wally@datacide ~]$ find /mp3-sorted -name "*.mp3" -print | wc -l
    (that says a lot right there, don't it?)
    [wally@datacide ~]$ find /shorten\ -\ flac/ -name "*.shn" -print | wc -l
    [wally@datacide ~]$ find /shorten\ -\ flac/ -name "*.flac" -print | wc -l
  2. The last CD I bought was:
    The Maurizio metal box from some guy in Israel off Ebay. I have not actually received it yet though.

  3. The last song I listened to before writing this was:
    “We Were” by Minamo off Shining, the most recent release on 12k, which I received in the mail today from Ear/Rational, where I have a 12k subscription. It has some surprisingly sad moments on it. A very delicate, fragile album.
  4. Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me:
    (In no particular order)

    1. “Jesus Saves” by Slayer, because it fucking rocks, that’s why. The breakdown is massive.
    2. “roygbiv” by Boards of Canada, because I love the 70s zombie movie synth sounds being used to such good effect on what’s essentially an uplifting bittersweet track. It really hit me how good this track was when I heard UFO drop it at the peak of a smoking jungle set at Even Furthur 2000 and watched the whole crowd collectively sigh after being punished with vicious breaks for 2 hours.
    3. “King In My Empire” by Rhythm & Sound and Cornel Campbell, because it’s so sweet and deep at the same time.
    4. “Expedition to the Barrier Peaks” by Crix Madine, partly because Nate is my brother-man, mostly because it’s my favorite track of his and I had a really strong experience with it one evening.
    5. “After The Gold Rush” by Neil Young. If you have to ask, you wouldn’t understand.
  5. Five albums I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me:
    (In no particular order)

    1. Autechre – “Amber” a masterpiece.
    2. Scion – “process and arrange basic channel tracks” I love Basic Channel and this is a great way to digest their discography.
    3. Pink Floyd – “Wish You Were Here” Go ahead, laugh. You know you listen to it alot too.
    4. Coldcut – “Journeys By DJ” The only release in this series of mixes that lives up to the name “Journey”.
    5. Tetsu Inoue – “Ambiant Otaku” A very healing listen.
  6. Which 5 people are you passing this baton to, and why?
  7. I’m not. Sorry.
