As we’ve learned, over and over again, my musical tastes are unlike those of most people. They’re similar, mind you, but just a bit off-kilter. It’s as if you took a normal person’s tastes and rotated them about five degrees from reality. Oh well. I got a kick out of the meme (I found here) so you’re stuck with it anyway. Unless you choose to stop reading at this point, of course. Continue reading
Since it seems to be the thing to do, today:
1. Take a picture of yourself right now.
2. Don’t change your clothes, don’t fix your hair…just take a picture.
3. Post that picture with NO editing.
4. Post these instructions with your picture.
I really don’t photograph well, do I…?
The guy who draws Dork Tower posted a silly meme a few days ago, and I decided to hop on board. (Hey, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I think I’m allowed.) Mind you, I don’t use iTunes (no Ogg Vorbis support) so all I can do is make Winamp jump through the hoops. Luckily I’m already in the habit of using the Media Library…

Most Represented Artist: Genesis (233 tracks) *******
* I’ve only recently gotten into the habit of using the Media Library. Otherwise there’d be songs with much higher play counts.
** I had to find this the old-fashioned way: Doing a date search in the file directory. Winamp seems not to track my “recently added” very well for some reason.
*** I’d have found the shortest “proper” song in the list, but I ran out of time this morning. The first dozen entries were “non-songs” of one sort or another. So I gave up.
**** Which beat out Genesis’ “Supper’s Ready,” the previous (three) contender(s) (original and two live renditions), by almost twenty minutes!
***** Last studio album, not a single, by a proper band: Worldillia by Porno Graffitti
****** In Winamp, file path and album are included in all searches. These numbers are therefore inflated a little bit. Yes, this annoys me but there seems to be no way to search only in the title of a song. (Argh.)
******* By no means is all of my Genesis music ripped to MP3 or Ogg. The same is true for most of my other favorite artists, actually. That first number (~5000 tracks) would be much, much higher if I really wanted to go crazy with the digital music library…
Ganked from one of my LJ reads, here goes:
4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together, and
post link to the result as a comment in this post. Also, pass it along in your own journal because it’s more amusing that way.
(Not bad for just using IrfanView on the laptop, eh?)
