1. What was the first band you saw in concert?
Dead Milkmen. Great show back in the days of the Electric Banana.

2. Who is your favorite artist/band now?
I guess the bands I have the most CDs for are Tom Waits, Portishead, :Wumpscut:, Stromkern, VNV Nation (Yah, shut up Don), Concrete Blonde, Negativland, and ... yes .. Toad the Wet Sprocket.

My mp3 collections adds Anti-Flag and SNOG to that list. Though, I don't know how representative my mp3 collection is anymore since I've decided to go (largely) legal and have been ripping my music from my own collection, or pulling from

I've really been digging on Backlash, The Fall, and The Generators in recent times too.

For classical, I've not really varied from Mozart, Verdi, Shostacovich, Orff, and Randall Thompson for most of my life.

3. What's your favorite song?
Verdi's Requiem.

4. If you could play any instrument, what would it be?
The piano so that the large object in my living room isn't so f(*&ing useless. :)

Yah yah, I know I can play Greensleeves. That doesn't count.

5. If you could meet any musical icon (past or present), who would it be and why?
Tom Waits, and go fishing with him. *humming some in-joke theme music*
