bandwidth

i would blame the two people who recently mentioned kazaa lite to me, in the context of me having a new cd burner, for the fact i’ve launched off on another one of my obsessive episodes, but it’s nobody’s fault but my own. i mean, i get absolutely crazed just thinking that there are, right now, 4.6 million users online sharing 6,635,008 GB of files. we’re talking petabytes here, and yeah, i had to look that up.

and me? pfft. half a gig. i am so slacking. but what i lack in quantity i make up in excessive amounts of metadata – every single one of these things has the full title/album/track number/year/genre/cover art/lyrics/notes thing alllll filled in. and music match fucking rocks, ok? “super tagging”: put the right artist/title in the right boxes, click “search for tags” and it pulls up a list of possibilities, you pick one and presto – i go one further and do a quick google for the lyrics, add those, and then … go get more songs. my mp3 collection is very obsessed over.

i need more bandwidth.

current cd in the works is in more, the titles kind of tell a little story, well, they do in my little mind. don’t know how exactly resignation superman encountering kryptonite would lead to your ghost being silent all these years, but the rest almost fits. i’m working on it.


dream all day – the posies
resignation superman – big head todd & the monsters
kryptonite – three doors down
your ghost – kristin hersh
silent all these years – tori amos
a sorta fairytale – tori amos
angry johnny – poe
people who died – jim carroll
comin’ down – meat puppets
plateau – meat puppets
land on me – pinching judy
drive – incubus
counting blue cars – dishwalla
open road song – eve 6
nada – the refreshments
sunny came home – shawn colvin
home by the sea – genesis
coming right along – the posies

  1. Holy murphy… 6,635,008 GB! and here I was happy with my 6GB of downloaded mp3s. I have to resist popping onto kazaa lite. To much temptation and I am quickly running out of hard disk space.

    mmmm.. Tori! must find more tori…
