Beautiful Music

Shannon got me.

1. What is the total amount of music files on your computer?
Actually, none. I went to college before Napster arrived and then I had a slow computer and dial-up connection that would have self-destruct if I tried to download anything like that, and I don't have an ipod and therefore, none.

2. What was the last CD you bought?
I believe it was Green Day 'American Idiot'
The next one will be the Dresden Dolls

3. What was the last song you listened to before reading this message?
Social Distortion, "When the Angels Sings"
