Music nerds unite!

I'm not even going to lie to you about this... I totally stole this from Brie's blog.

1. Of all the bands & artists in your collection, which one do you own the most albums?
Oddly enough, I have oodles of Outkast, Jamiroquai and Radiohead.

2. What was the last song you listened to?
“Your Woman" by White Town

3. What's in your CD player right now?
“Mezzanine" by Massive Attack, "Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes" by TV on the Radio and Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits.

4. What are your favorite instruments?
Trombone, violin, synthesizer and kazoo. (I am really good at two of those...)

5. Who's your favorite local artist?
Young and Sexy and Sparrow... among others.

6. What was the last show you attended?
Octoberman, Blood Meridian, and The Mohawk Lodge at the Railway Club.

7. What was the greatest show you've ever been to?
That's a tie between Radiohead at Thunderbird (the 2nd time... with the REM combo) and Depeche Mode for the Exciter tour at the Coliseum.

8. What's the worst band you've ever seen in concert?
Oh god. American HiFi... IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, I SWEAR TO GOD! Phantom Planet was supposed to be opening, but they didn't show. I was trying to get me some Jason Schwartzman action.

9. What band do you love musically but hate the members of?
Oasis. I hear Wonderwall and I get all nostalgic... and then I see Noel and Liam on tv and I'm all, "You are both total douchebags."

10. What is the most musically involved you have ever been?
Grade 10 - 12 I was in 4 bands and got in about 3 solid hours of sweet trombone action a day on average. I was kind of a big deal on the local trombone scene. (NOT TO BRAG OR ANYTHING.)

11. What show are you looking forward to?
The Police on May 30th! Woot.

12. What is your favorite band shirt?
Well... I love my Depeche Mode "Violator" shirt is pretty amazing... though I am not entirely sure where it is. BUT... I am madly in love with my Clash t-shirt because they really are the only band that matters.

13. What musician would you like to hang out with for a day?
That is kind of an insane question. I have a million different answers. Here are but a few possibilities:
Tunde Adebimpe from TV on the Radio... mostly just so we could have makeouts.
OR Bob Dylan because he inadvertently changed my life.
OR Steve Winwood. Just because he's Steve Winwood and I've had this weird love of him since I was 4. I can't explain it.

14. What musician would you like to be in love with you for a day?
Tunde again. SWEET MOTHER HE IS HOT. Hot sex on a platter, that one. (Eh? Sweet musical reference!)

15. What was your last musical "phase" before you wizened up?
Erm... THE LATE NINETIES??? I own Everclear and Dave Matthews cds.

16. Sabbath or solo Ozzy?
I will say Sabbath, because anyone with a name like Geezer Butler deserves mad props. Especially now that he actually is one.

17. Did you know that filling out this survey makes you a music geek?
You haven't even scratched the surface, biatch!

18. What was the greatest decade for music?
Early punk, new wave, late 60's/early 70's folk and rock.

19. What is your favorite movie soundtrack?
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Pretty in Pink.

20. Where would you be without music?
This is going to sound dramatic, but honestly, WHAT WOULD BE THE POINT OF BEING ANYTHING?? That's how big of a nerd I am.

Seriously though...I played the trombone in Grade 7 band, but---this is tragic---I was allergic to the metal mouthpiece!!! Rather than invest in a plastic one, I had to apply this thick lipbalm on my mouth before each practice. Plus I was one of the only girls in the brass section. I was a band freak!

Also...You should look at Coconut Records on MySpace. Now there's a little Schwartzman action. Yums.
