Ooh Ooh Song

This iTunes meme was stolen from Kevin's Rants. He stole it from some other people, but I'm doing a coast blog at holiday time and what the hell - I'm not above thievery.

The data is true as it stands, but it's not really all inclusive - as I don't have 100% of everything I owned either ripped or loaded into iTunes. All of our music resides on a massive server, but I don't care for some of Denton's music (and vice versa), so I saw no reason bog down my hard-drive with that stuff.

That being said - away we go:

Wow, that is so much music, and so much money. Yes, I'm a cheap bastard.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Cool. True genius is knowing what ideas to steal. I do it all the time.

Raul Malo apparently appears at the Roseland Ballroom, according to my friend Mike (who introduced me to his music). Have you seen Malo there? He's that close to The Voice, Roy Orbison.

Well, when you break down how much I've purchased over a 24 year period (my first CD player), it's not THAT bad. ...and let's not forget the tons I may or may not have gotten when Napster was first around.

Malo is GREAT. Seen him w/Mavericks and on his own.
