Phew... Second leg of the blogging marathon coming to you! This time, I got a fever. And the only cure is more blogging! Baton number two for the night (as brought to you by the lovely folks at John and Alisa's blogs)...

Name three books on your book shelf. One from each end and one from the middle. Top shelf: David Copperfield by Charles Dickens, Middle Shelf: The Life of Reilly by Rick Rielly, Third shelf: The Art of Looking Sideways by Alan Fletcher

What reading material is in your bathroom? Maxim. When it was a book, it was Blink by Malcolm Gladwell a little while ago. When I drag one into the bathroom now, it's usually Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst.

Favorite authors and why. Hummm... There only three I read religiously... two of which are sportswriters. Bill Simmons and Rick Reilly are my sportswriters, Chuck Palahniuk being the other. I've read all of his books and still have yet to see the movie Fight Club.

Least favorite authors and why. Can't pick. I feel everyone is an author. If I had to choose someone, it'd probably be myself. I always go back and look at things and say "Oh Addam, what are you thinking there?! Reword it..."

What author is over rated? Wow... That's too mean.

Would you (have you) picked up a woman in a bookstore? Nope I can't say I have... and I can also say I've never tried.

Do you eat while you read? If so what’s your food of choice? No, I've tried once and ended up spilling it all over my bed. It was ice cream. Also would suggest, if the power goes out and your reading by candlelight, make sure you at least 5 feet away from the candle. I think you know what I'm getting at...

Name one book you'd recommend for someone searching for meaning or insight or inspiration. Ask Howell. Whatever book he read that made him all Buddihist, I'd recommend that.

Name one book you'd recommend for a day on the beach or a rainy day in the house. Goodness... umm... I'm not sure here. I don't read fiction really.

Do you judge a book by its cover? Everyday. I can admit it. It's just a matter of being open enough to delve futher in and see what it's ACTUALLY about. As a designer, I know that not all book covers are a true representation of what the story's about. Everyone takes something different from a book.

In the bookstore, what section do you head to first? Whatever is the closest. Seeing as the Barnes and Noble here in Georgetown has magazines up front, I'd say that. But afterwards, I ususally head up a level to the Art and Web Technology books.

Five people to whom I'm passing the book baton: Again, I'm so late... If you want it, come and get it...

So I've been sitting on this for weeks now. Due to either my work schedule, my life scedule, my sleep schedule or my overall laziness schedule, I haven't gotten around to it. I have hopes of not becoming the Marion Jones of the internet world my first month on the job. Without further, or any, ado... my musical baton, as brought to you by John.

Total volume of music on my computer: 20.89 GB, my Powerbook's iTunes says. Of course, this is minus the new Motion City Soundtrack cd which sits at home on my PC.

The last CD I bought was: Bought? Verve Remixed 3 from iTMS. The last CD I got was Coldplay's X&Y, courtsey of The Girl.

Song playing right now: Infromation Travels Faster by Death Cab. I have a headache...

Five songs I listen to a lot, or that mean a lot to me: According to my iTunes, my five most played songs are

  • Goodnight and Go by Imogen Heap
  • California by Phantom Planet (yes, THE O.C. song)
  • Wouldn't It Be Nice by The Beach Boys
  • A Lack of Color by Death Cab
  • The View by Modest Mouse

I'd have to concur with all. Or you could just click on the "Currently Playing" up there to the left and see what Audioscrobbler says.

Five people to whom I'm passing the baton: Everyone has already done this so I'm passing on the passing. It's too old now and I'd feel like the one guy at the house party that arrives at 4.30AM, when everyone is drunk and tired, with a 24-pack and decides now's the time to continue the party... even though there are only 6 people left at the party... 4 of which are sleeping.

That said, if you want it, I've got 5 spots. Leave a comment and I'll gladly amend this part of the entry...
