so here goes, i think it was alex who passed me the baton… a challenge i am unable to resist, music being awesome n all..
amount of music on my computer? almost 17GB now, increasing all the time (not because i listen to just anything, you understand)
no idea how many hours that is.. into a few weeks back-to-back i think (but don't quote me on that)
fiveX ten most listened-to songs?
1. obviously, goes without saying, rock the casbah ** the clash
possibly one of my top-five all-time favourite songs
2. all mapped out ** the departure
probably the best new band around at the moment- streets ahead of some of the stuff around.. sadly no album as yet :(
3. she suits me to a t ** 22–220's
my favourite newish band (from the shire- my a-level english teacher is the singer's godmother!) fuinky and generally an awesome tune
4. queen bitch ** david bowie
a truly cool song, weirdly not on his greatest hits, but one of his best if you ask me
5. crowded elevator ** incubus
one of my favourite bands ever, one of their best songs ever
6. quiet ** the delays
not on their album, a rare track, but well worth the effort of looking if you can find it
7. never forget ** take that
:$ how did that get there?! my absolute favourite boy-band ever, one of their best songs too. very underrated in my humble opinion
8. tracy jacks ** blur
true-blue brit pop of the highest quality, also one of the best bands.. probably ever
9. misty mountain hop ** led zepplin
awesomely cool song B)
10. joy. discovery. invention ** biffy clyro
hmm.. think i might have slightly miscounted there… what can i say?? i have too much music that i listen to all the time to narrow it down to just 5.. so many more to mention! libertines, placebo, ani difranco, tori amos, ben folds, eels, the coopers, tom mcrae…
yes, that old chestnut we've all grown to know from endless internet pop-ups etc. …
well publicised i would have thought, what with numerous adverts attached to websites etc…
so someone please tell me why someone keeps leaving comments on my blog advertising "texas holdem", or whatever the sod it is??!
this blogger is officially against advertising!! (for anything like that anyways)

i have only one thing to say:
May 01, 2005
then you'll just have to wait til i've finished my business plan..
watch this space…
not that i like to give the impression that i'm slightly in love with my awesome place of birth…
(just in case you don't already know what it looks like on a map)
the shire is truly the most awesome place on earth, and here are just a few reasons why:
*i live there for 22 weeks of the year (by default making it ace)
*everywhere is really pretty (except maybe girmsby..)
*all the best places are there, like lincoln castle and tattershall castle
*the legendary skegness
….and many many more!!
