Musical Baton

Filed in: music, personal, Wed, May 18 2005 16:06 PT

I have been passed the musical baton from Mike Davidson, D. Keith Robinson, and Molly Holzschlag. (Jeezus, people.)

Total volume
My MP3 share on my home network contains 60.8GB of music. (Yes, it’s legal.) I have an additional 4GB of music that has been played or approved for play on Staccato.
Last CD bought
A tie: Mike Doughty’s Haughty Melodic and Ani DiFranco’s Knuckle Down.
