Hi, I'm a capricorn who loves asian cuisines, live theater and, oh yeah, music, which is what we're supposed to talk about. So here goes:
I love every one of their albums, but to give you a closer feel about my tastes, here's my ranking on each artist and the albums:
Favorite Happy songs: "Terra Incognita" and "Ra Is a Busy God"
The only other artist who I own the entire collection of (meaning all domestic albums and EPs, plus several singles, imports and boots) is Concrete Blonde. I love anything Johnette Napolitano touches. She's another one of my goddesses. ("Bloodletting" is probably my favorite album of all time -- mainly because it's a very personal album to me and reminds of a specific time in my life).
Oops, I lied. I also have Michelle Shocked's entire collection ... she's another fave. I grew up in a town not far from the one she grew up in.
Working on completing collections of: Nick Cave, Ani DiFranco, Legendary Pink Dots, Edward Ka-Spel, Dead Can Dance, Cowboy Junkies, Indigo Girls (I think only "Strange Fire" and "Indians Nomads Saints" left).
My musical tastes are extremely eclectic: I enjoy good music (and occasionally not so good music) of any genre -- rap, country and western (hey, I live in Fort Worth, Texas -- and I jumped right on that ya'llternative bandwagon: Robert Earl Keen and Asylum Street Spankers!) and metal included. However, the bulk of my collection is definitely Ectophilic.
Since joining the Ecto mailing list in the summer of 1998, my collection has increased like crazy, and I've discovered such wonderful artists as Veda Hille, Heidi Berry, Holly McNarland, Katell Keineg, October Project and much more.
