A meme from Dave


"Meme" - In casual use, the term meme often refers to any piece of information passed from one mind to another. Meme (pron. meem): A contagious information pattern that replicates by parasitically infecting human minds and altering their behavior, causing them to propagate the pattern. (Term coined by Dawkins, by analogy with "gene".) Individual slogans, catch-phrases, melodies, icons, inventions, and fashions are typical memes. An idea or information pattern is not a meme until it causes someone to replicate it, to repeat it to someone else. All transmitted knowledge is memetic.

1. Total volume of music files on my computer?

pffft.... I don't download music on my computer... that's for young white guys from Delaware and geeks

2. The last CD I bought was?

Bought? Hmmmmm..... probably "Los Lonely Boys" ... I usually have CDs given to me. I picked up several today from a friend...
"Guitarras & Tequilas" Frank Corrales - one of the legendary masters of Tex-Mex music
"Border Spice" Frank Corrales
"Guadalupe, Virgin de Los Indios" San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble - 16th century Aztec and Nahua spiritual music, inspired by La Virgen de Guadalupe
"Guitarristas" a mix of Cubano, Spanish, Mexican and Brazillian guitar musica
"ad vielle que pourra" Musaique - a very ecclectic blend of European folk music
"Sephardic Romances" - Ensemble Accentus - Traditional Jewish Music from Spain
"Flamenco Southwest" Ruben Romero


3. Song playing right now:

4. Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order):

"How Far is Heaven?" - Los Lonely Boys
"Breathe" - Michael W. Smith
"Bright White" - Shawn Phillips
"Money" Pink Floyd - it's about the message...

You know what? I have a s-load of music on my computer and even created an FTP site so that KS3 could send me some music to load on my IPOD. Since I don't match the description of "young white guy from Delaware", I must be a geek. Okay, I am a geek. But you have to admit, IPODs are so cooool...

Pauly said...

You are DEFINITELY a geek... do you keep your IPOD in your shirt pocket with a bunch of pens?
I already know you slick your hair with Icky-pic. Woo hoo!

Airelee said...

Hey man, Icky-pic is the new Pomade...

Dave said...

Los Lonely Boys--"More than Love" one of my favorite songs. European folk music....never woulda seen that comin

Dave: the European folk music is not normally what I seek. I too am a Marshall Tucker Band throwback to the 70's...I grew up on that music when it was new.
I am more of a Steely Dan, Dire Straits and Pink Floyd kinda old hispanic guy. But I am also a listener of just about anything EXCEPT C&W and hip-hop. I should say, I take music seriously, so I listen to music that actually requires composition and arrangement.

Anybody can rap,
who the hell likes that crap?
They think it sounds good,
it's just sounds from da hood.
And about dancing to someone singing country crap,
It's just as bad as rap.
so take the ghetto tunes
and the country croons
and shut yo trap
yea bruthah,
shut yo trap
