i know music?

  • Total amount of music files on your computer: Maybe 50 -75 megs. Mainly from clients in my studio who needed MP3s made. To quote Lara: “I LOVE buying CDs.” There is satisfaction in that. There is no satisfaction in downloading an MP3, for me. Where are the liner notes? Where are the smells of the liner notes. Where is the actual going to a store and looking through the record bins? It’s more than just a song to me.
  • The last CD you bought was: I don’t ever just buy one CD. I am not that kind of guy. I did buy a bunch of records in California:
    1. Karlheinz Stockhausen – electronic music of TUESDAY from LIGHT

    2. prince – NEWS
    3. the Walkmen – bows and arrows
    4. Daft Punk – homework
    5. Frank Zappa – waka/jawaka
    6. Frank Zappa – baby snakes
    7. Joni Mitchell – court and spark
    8. Joni Mitchell – blue
    9. The Best of Gil Scott-Heron – live
    10. Peter Gabriel – so
    11. Marc Ribot – y los cubanos postizos
    12. Herbie Hancock – futureshock
    13. Nina Simone – in concert/i put a spell on you
  • What is the song you last listened to before reading this message? Axel F on my Palm Pilot as that is the alarm sound
  • What are your five favorite songs and why they mean the most to you: Impossible question. But here are the first 5 I could think of.
    • Motr – Trans Am – Perfect build up. No vocals. Cathardic. I want to be in the story of this song.
    • Three Days – Jane’s Addiction – It’s epic. It’s painful. It’s really beautiful in reality. First take? Maybe.
    • Gamera – Tortoise – Half simplicity. Half production. A lot of genius.
    • This Must Be The Place – The Talking Heads – The Prophet synth solo. It’s also a place where I am at right not. Partially lyrically and partially musically.
    • Another Loney Christmas – Prince – The CHORDS! The drums. 1984 – DC show. It’s very much a part of how I thought I lived my life.
  • What 3 people are you going to pass this baton to and why?
    • Eric He might not listen to much more than the Grateful Dead, but he’s as passionate about music and creating music as I am.
    • Al Because it’s better than those damn lists he’s been posting and he knows music. Like Bo.
    • Heidi Because she loves this stuff.
