After finals in December, I went on a CD binge at Amoeba Records. I can't remember everything I bought off the top of my head, but I found the receipt:

  1. Elysium by the Velvet Teen

What is the song you last listened to before this message?
I don't know. I'm currently listening to "I could never take the place of your man" by Prince.

Name three artists/bands you adore:

  1. Café Tacuba
  2. Rilo Kiley
  3. Julieta Venegas
Damn, it's hard for me to just pick three.

Write down five songs you often listen to, or that mean a lot to you.
I recently made a Alegría playlist. Basically, it's songs that make me happy. There are currently 394 songs on that list, and I'm sure I missed a few. My five:

  1. "Las Flores" by Café Tacuba
  2. "Just Like Heaven" by the Cure
  3. "Oleada" by Julieta Venegas
  4. "Soul to Squeeze" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
  5. "Portions for Foxes" by Rilo Kiley

Who are you gonna pass this stick to (three persons and why)?

  1. El Oso because I just got Catalog of Pop Volumen II and III in the mail today (thanks!) and because lighthearted stuff is fun. Who really cares about conservative minorities?
  2. Vicky because whenever I've seen her do one of these music meme's I'm always lost and I kinda like that feeling.
  3. Dee, just because I feel like it.
