1) What was the first CD/Record/Album/Artist you ever bought and what format was it in? (Vinyl/Cassette/CD/MP3 Download)?
My first ever CD was The Spice Girls' Spice. =] Little know fact: I bought it the night Princess Diana died.
2) How do you usually listen to music? (iPod/Walkman/Stereo/Radio)
Mostly iPod, but I love my radio.
3) What is your favorite genre of music and why?
I can't narrow it down. I have a ridiculously ecclectic music taste.
4) What is your opinion on music video shows and music televion?
I love music videos. They keep me entertained when I'm bored. As for music television, like MTV and MuchMusic, it's become far too much about reality TV shows and not enough about the muzakkk.
5) Do you usually agree with who the winners of the Grammy Awards are?
Sure, why not?

3) What is your favorite genre of music and why?

So many to pick, but I'll have to say the blues, because so much of what I love can be traced back to the blues.

I love it. I don't watch a lot, but I watch music videos on YouTube, I can pick most of what I want on there and watch on my own schedule. No programming manager tells me what to watch!

Yeah, because they all SUCK.

1) What was the first CD/Record/Album/Artist you ever bought and what format was it in? (Vinyl/Cassette/CD/MP3 Download)?
as a child of the vinyl era, the parents would buy random LPs for me to listen to from the cutout bins. many of those LPs stuck. but the first album i ever bought was paul mccartney and wings' london town after getting the giggles from hearing (and singing) the word "damn" in "with a little luck." (you can only imagine the reaction i had to my initial listen to bob dylan's "hurricane" a few weeks later.)

2) How do you usually listen to music? (iPod/Walkman/Stereo/Radio)
turntable + sennheisers. that's "headphones" to the uninitiated. :)

3) What is your favorite genre of music and why?
anything that doesn't sound forced. you know, like modern "pop" and "country."

4) What is your opinion on music video shows and music televion?
andy partridge said it best: if you really want to enjoy MTV, turn the brightness all the way down and the contrast all the way up until the screen goes black, and you'll enjoy the music that much more! (and let's not forget this money quote: "let's get really braiin dead! play something by roxette!")

5) Do you usually agree with who the winners of the Grammy Awards are?
the grammy (and similar) awards are as relevant as the contents of the toilet paper i flushed a few minutes ago.

2) How do you usually listen to music? (iPod/Walkman/Stereo/Radio) On my computer if I'm home, radio in the car.
