Answer Your Phone

I answered mine yesterday and was hit with a burst of speech. "Hi how are you today I'm not trying to sell you anything I just want to ask you a few questions about music." One breathless sentence.
I like phone surveys. I like music. I said sure!

After the age and identifying questions he asked me what were the three most recent cds I'd purchased. I couldn't really remember, so I told him three recent ones, though not most recent.
I Am the Movie - Motion City Soundtrack
This Island - Le Tigre
Senor Smoke - Electric Six.
I should have said New Pornographers instead of that last one, but oh well.

Then he asked What the three most recent bands I'd seen were.
The Aquabats
The Epoxies
The Soviettes
I had to spell all of them for him.

He asked how many cds I buy in a month. I asked new or new and used. He said "any", so I told him 100. He was stunned. I explained my recent 300 cd month and he said "Where do you keep them all?"

After this, the questions were less fun. He asked the same series of questions about a number of bands: The Offspring, The Strokes, Some guy that I think was that British singer emmalyon hates, 2 bands/artists I'd never heard of and Sarah McGlocklin (or however it is spelled). Who else is in their genre? Are they celebrities as well as musicians? Are they on their way up or down? Who's the leading artist in their genre? Then a bunch of 1-5 ratings.

It was amusing. Mostly I thought it was funny what a hard time I had thinking of band's names when I knew who I meant.
