More Muzins On Muzik, Meme Styley Freakies!!
Got this music meme (a geeky blogging term for 'theme') from The Sound of The Crowd:
Of all the bands/artists in your CD/record collection, which one do you own the most albums by?
Steely Dan. A true obsession of my late teens-early twenties. Don't like 'em? Screw you.
What was the last song you listened to?
"Feel Good Inc." - Gorillaz
What's in your CD player right now?
Turin Brakes, Jackinabox
What song would you say sums you up?
"Sexy Boy" - Air
What's your favorite local band?
San Francisco has notoriously awful local bands, but since 'Film School's' lead singer lives with my buddy Jeff, I'll say they're slightly better than Huey Lewis & The News or Boz Scaggs.
What was the last show you attended?
New Order and The Chemical Brothers.
What artist do you consider to be very underrated?
Adam Green. He's like MC Paul Barman and Beck had a folksy asshole love child.
What's the shittiest band you've ever seen in concert?
Steely Dan at the Blockbuster Pavilion in San Bernardino. Not because of the show itself, but because it took 2 1/2 hours to pull into the arena and park, causing us to miss half of the show. Stupid christians with their no-porno policy. Fuck 'em.
What band do you love musically but hate the members of?
The Pixies. Frank Black seems to have two speeds, absolutely nothing or tour until your sick of 'em.
What is the most musically involved you have ever been?
Probably when I first moved to New York and scoured the streets for bootlegs of Steely Dan concerts and snuck into the first concert Donald Fagen had played in 10 years. Whatta geek...
What show are you looking forward to?
Turin Brakes were incredible the last time I saw them and I will definitely see them again.
What is your favorite band shirt?
Mike Mills graphics for Air's Moon Safari album are great, but Cypress Hill always has great shirts filled with pot leafs that make for great 'job interview' gear.
What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?
Fatboy Slim. He's a fucking 'superstar DJ'. Is there a better life?
Metal question - Jeans and Leather vs. Cracker Jack clothes?
Well, jeans and leather are the chosen clothing of the homosexual community, so Cracker Jack I guess (does that involve dressing up as a small sailor boy?)
Sabbath or solo Ozzy?
So easy, Sabbath!!!!
Commodores or solo Lionel Ritchie?
Let's see, 'Machine Gun' or 'Dancin' on the Ceiling'. Commodores for goddsakes...
Blackjack or solo Michael Bolton?
I choose a long slow, HIV-related death.
The Eagles or solo Don Henley?
'Long Run' era Eagles, when they were trying to be Steely Dan.
The Police or solo Sting?
The friggin Police by a mile. I don't even need to discuss it further.
Doesn't emo suck?
Not necessarily. It's fans sure do. Stupid sing-a-long pussies.
Name 4 flawless albums.
Air - Moon Safari, Chemical Brothers - Exit Planet Dust, Donald Fagen - The Nightfly, Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique.
Did you know that filling out this survey makes you a music geek?
Did you know that writing a music survey makes you the kind of geek that lives in his parent's garage?
What was the greatest decade for music?
pop music - 80s, rock - 70s, meaningful music - 90s, stupid hippy bullshit - 60s, absolute crap - 2000s.
How many music-related videos/DVDs do you own?
8 or 9. If you've never seen Underworld's 'Everything/everything' on DVD with the speakers turned up to '11', then you haven't lived.
Do you like Journey?
What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
Color Of Money. I can't explain why.
What was your last musical "phase" before you wised up?
2 days ago, I listened to a bunch of '8-bit' (music inspired by videogames of the '80s). I wised up as soon as the grocery store vodka passed through me.
What's the crappiest CD/record/etc you've ever bought?
2 Unlimited - Get Ready. Trying to convince myself that dutch techno made for hockey arenas was anything but awful was an excercise in futility.
Do you prefer vinyl or CDs?
I'm supposed to prefer vinyl because it's so much cooler, but I don't.
What is your guilty pleasure CD, that being the CD you love but would be ashamed to admit you have in your collection?
Clannad - The Collection. A brief love of the british TV show 'Robin Hood' starring Sean Connery's son begat a love of awful 'Enya-style' music.
There, my soul is open bare. I hope you're all happy now.
