A Musical Baton

Update: So, I was invited to play the game yesterday by yesterdayishere.com (Bojan Janjanin).

So everybody in the web-design blog community is jumping on this Musical Baton meme…but where did it all start? Heck if I know. I first heard about it on Monday when Richard Rutter, Jon Hicks, and Jason Santa Maria all started playing the game. I followed the “who tagged who” links all the way back to a Live Journal user who claimed not to have been tagged, but was playing anyway. I thought I’d stop looking for origins at that point and do the same. It’d be interesting to see some stats on how many gigs of music the average web-designer has, since so many of us are participating. Anyway, here goes:

Total volume of music files on my computer: 12.1 Gb
…the music server at work has 66.4 Gb
(mostly rips of everyones cd collections)

The last CD I bought was:
“Believe” by Big Dismal

Song playing right now:
“Yakitori” by Yoko Kanno
(don’t ask…I didn’t enque it.)

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me:

  1. “Right Here” by Mark Wills
  2. “Float On” by Modest Mouse
  3. “Tutti Vogliono Viaggiare in Prima” by Ligabue
  4. “Better Together” by Jack Johnson
  5. “3×5″ by John Mayer

Five people to whom I’m passing the baton:

  1. Ray Williams – (Did It. – May 18th)
  2. Brian Reese
  3. Nathan Bird – (Did It. – May 26th)
  4. Ryan Salerno – (Did It. – May 24th)
  5. Russell Tyndall

  1. I should have thrown you the meme, I struggled to come up with 5 and ended up leaving it at 3.

    What a loser I am, but can’t expect much more from somebody’s first meme experience :)

  2. I was going to include you Justin, but I saw you’d already posted yours. I didn’t even really know what a meme was before this – which is why I added the Wikipedia link.

  3. Yeah, either did I :)
    I still didn’t *really* know until I got the Wiki link, thanks for that.

  4. Okay, all done! Thanks, Jason.

  5. Apperently this is the very beginning.

  • I have a lot of things to be thankful for, many of which stem from @bakecaker saying “yes” on this day in 2001.
