Total Volume of music on my computer
30.1 Gig. no idea how long it is in playing time
The last CD I bought was
well, technically the last cd i paid for was
system of a down – mezmerize
but that was a pre order, so i guess it's the 3 i bought last week, which are:
steeleye span – the best of
j.s. bach – complete organ works
beethoven – complete symphonies
Song playing right now
led zeppelin – when the levee breaks
Five songs I listen to a lot or that mean a lot to me
1. the beatles – she's leaving home
the only song that makes me cry every time i hear it (i'm a soppy thing really)
2. zombie ritual – death
the best track from death's first album. awesome heaviness and totally groundbreaking
3. kashmir – led zeppelin
reminds me of all the classic rock vs shitty hip hop arguments that happened when puff daddy knicked the riff. comedy moments and an awesome riff.
4. dare – stan bush (from transformers the movie)
my "pre-stress" song. esp good before exams. it's so uplifting
5. frank zappa – bobby brown goes down
it's so wrong. just so very very wrong.
The Five People I'm passing The Baton On To:
what a silly question. anyone can do this.

ok, hopping on the mspaint bandwagon. but it seems a much better thing to do at 2:45 than revising physics. even when the exam is on tuesday…

another blog. joys. this one will be dedicated to rants and reviews, no boring life crap.
review 1: the B4100
this is my favourite road in the country. it runs parallel(ish) to the M40 from leamington to Banbury and it's supreme. i swear, this road is a biking dream. if i get really fed up i just go and drive on it. up and down. no, i don't really, but if petrol was free then i would.
there are a few really fast corners. the road surface is smooth and good. it only goes through a couple of towns and it's usually pretty much deserted. As an extra plus, when you do meet a slow person, there are pleanty of places to overtake.
So if you're planning a journey in the banbury/oxford direction i would seriously recommend taking the B4100 instead of the M40 between junctions 13 and 11. you can rejoin after that and i guarantee you'll be in a better mood for it.
