I was just wondering, with all of us being computer nerds, just how many mp3's people have?  And does anybody actually pay for them?  Hope the RIAA isn't checking this!

My iTunes and iPod have 5217 songs that are 19.42 GB in size and that is over 14.5 days worth of Music. Of course I have paid for it all!

Most people HAVE to use a PC.
I GET to use a MAC with OS X!

well, most of my music is actually encoded in ogg vorbis format.  a smaller portion is in mp3 and aac.  anyway, itunes reports:
3080 songs, 6.3 days, 11.48 GB
_somebody_ paid for all of my music.  i paid for most of it.  some of it was from gifts.  and some, well...


I feel so inadequate now.  I only have 1433, 3.8 days, 5.38Gb, all downloaded "illegally".

XMMS reports 3,137 songs, from Alice Cooper to ZZ Top.  It reports 183:44:47 total.  That's over 7 days of music. :-D  Much of it is my own CDs, my dad's CDs, and some is stuff I got from other people (props to Bill).  Little is fully illegal downloads from p2p, IRC, and the like.

And for fun, let's extend this thread to something absolutely useless; that we did once on another forum (the SomethingAwful forums)

Set your player on Shuffle, and put the first 10 songs played down in the thread.

1.  James Brown - Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine
2.  Frank Zappa - Stink Foot
3.  Dropkick Murphys - Watch Your Back
4.  Catch 22 - Sounds Good, But I Don't Know
5.  Mad Caddies - Road Rash
6.  Supertramp - Rudy
7.  The Beatles - Savoy Truffle
8.  The Beatles - You Never Give Me Your Money
9.  Bob Dylan - I Was Young When I Left Home
10. The Rolling Stones - It's Only Rock and Roll

And check out Audioscrobbler, if you like telling the world useless information like the above. :)  You can check out my page (which is empty at the moment) here

What I find funny, is that I have only listened to maybe half of my songs at least once.  The rest I have never even heard once.
