Shields! Shields!

Damnit, too late.

Allrighty, weekend trivia time.

Total size of music files on my computer.

If by "my computer", one means my primary workstation, then none. I keep all of my music on a RAID array with all of my other assorted junk compiled over the last decade and change. At the moment, my music collection is 189 Gigabytes.

No, I'm not kidding. Some years ago a co-worker of mine was of Sony Music lore, and literally had a dozen four cubic foot boxes of sampler CDs in his office for anyone who wanted them. I ended up with several hundred.

The last CD I bought was:

C... D? You mean those plastic things people bought before the iTunes Music Store existed? I think it was Black Ivory Soul by Angélique Kidjo.

Song playing right now in iTunes:

Setting Sun by The Chemical Brothers.

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:

I always find it next to impossible to narrow this sort of question down to five, so I'll go with ye 'ol top 25 smart playlist.

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:

Hmm.. well, Brian already tagged Mike, so it wouldn't be fair to nail him again. So, instead, I'll go with:

Rob, because he's got excellent musical taste, for an old fart.

Moxie, assuming she can drag herself away from the toast.

Sheila, because her tastes are likely to be as eclectic as mine, and include Metallica.

Coop, naturally.

And James, with the hope that he won't include something featuring Leonard Nimoy.
