there!, Hello

Ye Gads a Meme

1. Total amount of music files on your computer: Not a single one. Trista's got a bunch on her computer, and some of it mine, but I don't have a single track!

2. The last CD you bought was: Just got two in the mail yesterday, both soundtracks. The Grudge composed by Christopher Young and Robocop by Basil Pouledoris (there is no way that's spelled right) (by coyote, it is).

3. What is the song you last listened to before reading this message? "It Won't Rain All the Time" by Jane Sibery from The Crow soundtrack (listened in the car, this morning)

4. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.

Only five? In my life there have been a hellofalot more than five fecking tracks! Sheesh, whenever I'm on a project, I'm usually listening to music, more often than not letting it drone on repeat, working its way into my brainpan. Upon reflection, here are five. The list might change tomorrow.
1. Marcy Playground "Opium". There was a point in my life when I could not see straight (metaphorically, not literally). Afterwards, I discovered this song and it touched a chord. For the longest time, I wept whenever I heard it. It epitomizes, for me, about three and a half years of my life.
2. Shriekback "Only Thing that Shines". It reminds me of the special someone who introduced me to it. Twisted lyrics, but it makes me smile like a fool, regardless.
3. Faith No More, "Epic" Hell, the whole Real Thing album. This was my first foray into rebellious music in high school. Its creativity and spirit endures.
4. Queensryche, "Suite Sister Mary" This album, I believe, really inspired the person I've become(Operation: Mindcrime, also highly recommended). I listened to it on repeat for about four or five years. When I pay close attention to it now, I say, "Hey, is that when I first started thinking about ____?" Someday I would love to turn this into a film. (I know, Operation: Videocrime did turn parts of this into a film. I want to do the whole fecking thing as an actual up on the big screen musical movie.)
5. Nirvana "Something in the Way" This track spawned my first novel. I listened to it every day that I worked on that book, and heard it so many times I just could not listen to it again for a couple of years. Such a simple song, almost elementary in construction. However, I find it haunting.

5. Who are you going to pass this stick to? (3 persons) and why?
Nobody. Friends don't stick it to friends, unless invited.
