My iTunes says it would take me 67.6 days to listen to the 16,867 songs I have. I think I may take the next 2 months off and just listen to to my iTunes folder from start to finish.

Go for it, everyone needs some time to relax and kick some jams

Benjamin said...

p.s. i hope the writing is going well, i'm pumped for some new jams myself

nils nectar said...

I don't understand how anyone could accumulate that much music.

Maybe it's because I'm unemployed and tend to just listen to the same band all day every day.

xonedarkflamex said...

I wish I had as many songs as you do.

Hey, did you know that your remix of Tokio Hotel's "Ready, Set, Go!" was used in an NFL commercial?

guitarlove11 said...

sarahd said...

ok, i was just thinking to myself that there is no WAY someone could fill the 80Gb ipod (do they make one bigger?)....mine still has 59gb free!!
p.s.- i know i'm late in saying this but Rabbits are Roadkill is a stellar song!

GaBriELa said...

you should do it as long as u make new music for us!!!

Too Many, Too Few said...

Makes my small 944-song iTunes library seem pathetic now.

sugarandice said...

Whoa, that's a lot of music. Enjoy! Haha =]

Kyle said...

And quite frankly, your poll of R.Smith vs. Moz is probably the hardest for me to ever choose between, Mr. Shankly.

Shana said...

I think if you took off the next two months, some of your fans might perish from the trauma.

Some are already in a state of panic and withdrawal regarding new AFI music over on the OMB:AFI/DF boards. haha. :)

That poll is whack. It is like comparing apples to oranges. Now I am all cliched (add the accent).

Silly Girls Win said...

Haha, I think it might be that way for me too. I download waaaay too much stuff. lol
I'm gonna get my hair cut like yours! Not all of it but just the bangs. I love your bangs.
lol

alayna said...

mine says it'd take 9.9 days, which is so incredibly inferior to yours that it's not even funny.
But I'm broke & 15, so that might have something to do with it.

I was wondering, do you collect on vinyl too? I think I'd have quite a bit more on my library if I took into consideration all the records I own.

my-le (not like freakin' miley cyrus) said...

Wow, you have alot of songs!
I wish I had that much, that would keep me occupied forever.

You prolly get this alot but good luck with the new stuff you're making and hope you go on tour again. <3

GermaricanMix said...

Wow! I wanna have that many songs one day. It's a goal of mine, actually.

Maciej Makalowski said...

beat you! I have 17,069 songs.

Anonymous said...

I am getting sick of your fucking nonsense blogs instead of deliver the fucking EP or some fucking news.

Anonymous said...

DAMN.
...and I thought 5,000 songs was bad.

cassidyy said...

HAHA!
Lucky.
i have 158 songs.
it would take me 10 hours to listen to it all.
]:

angelic_cries said...

Hahaha. No, you must provide us with music! =]

I can't wait to hear what you have in store for us.

Soon, please? And the actual soon, not AFI definition of soon. ^_-

wtf jade. how am i supposed to choose between the cure and the smiths.


wtf.

Haras said...

"I am getting sick of your fucking nonsense blogs instead of deliver the fucking EP or some fucking news."

then stop reading them? just a thought.

i can't even imagine being able to listen to music for 2 months straight without ever hearing the same song twice. NUTS.

erica's grilled cheese sammich said...

Guiness Book Of World Records:
Longest Time Concecutively Listening To Music
---
Jade Puget listened to his playlist of 16,867 songs continuously for 67.6 days, pissing off many AFI fans who were waiting to hear news about the EP.

lolz jade im just kidding :P

december everyday said...

I used to have an iTunes library like that, when ever friends would come over they would put all there stuff on my computer. However then I went at school and moved away, now my mom gets to enjoy that much music!! JOY!

The cure vs. the smiths, how is one to choose, had to go with the Robert Smith however.

aileb said...

ok, before you do something crazy and listen to all that music-here's a tip, the shuffle button is your friend.

So, for the mellow times, what do you listen to?

Fluffo said...

If your two months vacation interferes with the 12-or-so AFI songs I'm expecting, I swear I'll peel my DF sticker off of my bumper and burn it.


<3

Fluffo said...

Oh...and I'm glad people are telling you off about blogging in your blog. Blogging in blogs sucks.

PS: Moz vs. Robert? I'm making another username and voting for them both.

glamour boy said...

i wish music consumed me like that..
i need a passion.
people who know themselves make me feel so aimless.

Kørrlej said...

I only have 1398 songs, apparently. I reckon it's actually more because I delete things off my iTunes after I put them on my iPod. For some reason.

Callisto said...

and here i was rejoicing to the fact that i only need 40 song to reach 1,000 songs on my itunes. I think I will never have that many songs (i dont buy songs on itunes that often, i like to have actual cds)

kirstie said...

You may do that once we have either an EP or an album >:(

<3

AbsentOfGrace said...

Awesome. I'm glad you brought up iTunes. I've actually created a playlist of everything on my iTunes I haven't listened to since 2007, which ended up being about 6GB worth of shit. I have weird tendencies to categorize my music and listen to it in a certain way like that. haha.

Karlye said...

Holy wow that's a lot of songs. It must be a reallyyyyyyyy wide variety of music though, you lucky duck.

Due to the fact that I am unemployed, my little 4GB iPod will only play up to 1.6 days of music, which is really sad. If I were employed, I'd have somewhere around the same amount as yours Jade, maybe more. And a bigger iPod, definately a bigger iPod.

Some tough polls you got there Mister, hard decisions are being made here.

Shana said...

I don't have the memory to upload all of my songs onto my computer.

I still cannot choose between Robert & Moz. That is wrong.

RosesAreBlue said...

wow Jade. You're going to need more than two months FYI. And that's if you don't sleep.

lostangel said...

Wow that beat out my friend who has 55 days of music...mine only has 16 days of music. Hope you are doing well. Can't wait for the new album.

Angharad said...

See, I need to start on widening my itunes, I have about a week's worth of music on there. I've listened to most of but I still have about 2 and a half days to listen to. Ah well, it will give me something to listen to whilst doing my uni work! :-D Hope you are well.

emerald said...

Wow, that's epic. My i-Tunes library is still only a baby; 3.6 days.

Maybe I'll have more songs when a *certain* band decides to release their new album :D Stop teasing us Jade!

lezah said...

Wow, that's a whole lot. I only have about 3000 songs. Yeah, you should totally listen to your iTunes folder from start to finish.

Stix said...

Holy fucking shit.

rEDcookiemontank said...

tried that once. i got about 3000 songs in when my ipod battery died at school. lost my spot. cried. never tried again.

so keep your battery charged if you try this via ipod.

Cherol said...

Sounds like that would be fun.

afireinside said...

damn, I've only got 26.6 days. Though that ain't counting all the NIN and VNV so I daresay that will add quite a bit.
I say do it.

Rowan said...

my 20,000 songs is about 45 days

Candy said...

Good luck for that, Jade-man.

ciel said...

That poll just isn't fair!
After much thought I did reluctantly vote for Moz, however, it was not an easy choice.

Ebon said...

......

You beat me by about 6,000 songs. I have 25 days of music on mine. Then again I'm not done adding my music.

JoeMama said...

Holy crap! I thought mine was a lot at 16.7 days.

Ashleigh said...

16,867?! Wow.

...I hope you plan to eat and sleep during those two months, at the very least. Many an AFI fan would be rather upset if you forget those two quite important things and perish on us.

XxDancerXofXmiseryxX said...

Damn you Jade and your plethora of Song's to choose from. When I used to use iTunes (recently switched to Zune...greatest choice I have ever made) I had about 1,024 songs...it said it would take be about TWO days! Oh that is just not fair!

But really, go ahead, take that break...but I erally miss you guys being in the scene and I really can't wait to see a new AFI album!

Love you guys!

Kayleigh Puget said...

I always wonder why iTunes give us stupid statistics like that.

My iTunes reckons it'll take me 10.9 hours to listen to all of mine. Don't laugh; I had a big deleting rampage the other day. I don't see the point in having songs I don't listen to on my iTunes.

Good on you though. Days worth of music. You lucky boy.

Sneaky Ninja said...

wow.. sadly mines only like 8 days.. i need to work on that...

Peter said...

Morrissey forever, you know that Jade
Keep up the good work

eMMe said...

hahahahahaha1 high five Jade!

i say do it! do it! do it! do it! do it! do it! do it! do it!

Just as long it doesn't cut into any making the next new AFI album....

chaoskittenxo said...

don't even think about it Jadey! *cough*...ep..*cough*...album... i don't have an ipod or mp3, i have LOTS of cds. i'm old-skool with my portable (half-dead)cd player.... or maybe i'm just poor... LOL! stacked up, my cds are the same height as me! (i'm 4 foot 11) and thats only the cds i've bought since 2006! LOL!... maybe THATS why i'm poor.... l8r jadey xo

leongyiting said...

Mine takes 18 days for 6000 songs.. I need an iPod classic):

finglitterfairy said...

mine says it would take 6,5 days...I really need to finish uploading CDs...copy some vinyl...

I need some new music...

Azelinn Black said...

noooo!!!!
We want new AFI music!!!

And THEN you can take the time to listen to your itunes library. ^_^

kiss_and_control said...

wow
I have only abot 800 songs...

Dude, how the hell am I supposed to choose between Moz and Robert? Impossible.

As for your playlist, I say go for it and let us know how it went, haha!

darkgoddess856 said...

I only have 150 song on my mp3 player...I feel like I need some new music...

16,000 songs....that my friend, is insane.

cilliii said...

hm.. yeah, go do that! :)
sounds like a lot of fun. :P
You might be insane afterwards though, but then people will know you as the guy woh's got his mental illness from 2 months just full of songs.
huh... then you might have a worldrecord, too.
yeah, you really should do that!!!

i'll miss you writing though.. xD

d'anna. said...

My iTunes doesn't say anything because my obviously illiterate aunt decided to delete it. Well, you can't have everything go your way.
It's so nice that the people who post anonymously can't grow some balls and at least make their name readable, and there's always something negative. I mean, they can't expect you to be all "Well, we recorded one song's vocals today. Yup. That's the news." Just ignore them, I find it works very nicely.
<3

Black Electric. said...

Jealous.
I only have 2000ish.

Brittney said...

Holy crap! Not even my dad has that much music! I don't even know 16,000 songs! Mine is 12.8 days 4539 songs. Most of those are my dad's. I'm guessing your iPod is amazing. I have a nano that holds less than 500 songs. Boo.

Claire said...

Well, you've got me beat by at least 15,000... Also, aren't your polls for Tina Fey/Sarah Palin and God/Satan a tad bit redundant? Just sayin'...

Panduh Loves Music said...

Jesus H. Christ, Jade.
Hardest poll ever.
After A LOT of thought, I had to go with Robert.

16,867 songs?!
Damn.
My tiny 1,897 song library feels frightened.

Anonymous said...

You must either have a lot of songs you have never listened to or you have way too much spare time ;)

Well, I guess you travel loads then your ipod is your best friend. Sadly mine died last week...

And yes - please update us about AFI. I seriously need to hear some new music.. I was all ready to hear the EP but now we have to wait for the album.

Also, what happened to the blaqk audio song "black ink style"? It was the first lyrics you posted but never got released! I have not forgotten about it you know ;)

GIVE US SOME MUSIC!!! (please)

blaqkpearl said...

Im so jealous,,,16,000+ songs!,,how come I seem to only DL AFI, Blaqkaudio,,,NIN,Raconteurs,, Marylyn Manson,,and did I mention AFI???,,I guess Im stuck in an amazing groove,,and I like it,,

helen099 said...

2 months off?! god forbid.

you'll force us (out here) into Jade Withdrawal.

♥♥♥

kayleigh kata$trophyyy said...

I only have 260 songs, that's about 10 hours.
I feel so musically challenged....

Christa said...

I have 9,077 songs and it would somehow take me 89 days to listen to it all. you have even more than my dad who has around 15,500 songs. He has at least 6,000 cds. :D We don't really have room for them. We'll probably end up like those people who are killed by stacks of magazines falling on their heads.

Anonymous said...

damn id like to see THAT list!!!

Mia said...

Dude. That's one incredible playlist. I don't even have an iPod at the moment, but if I tried putting all my music on this old computer, it could quite possibly not work anymore. Scary thought. O_e
But anyway! That's very admirable. What band do you have the most of? Good luck with the listening! Fun, fun, fun. :D

FeliciaFabulous said...

Jesus.
Fucking.
Christ.
Lol, way to go Jade. I didn't know it was possible to have that much music in one place, except for a music store.
How much memory do you have??

ThisSideUp said...

You should totally do it. And post a video of it. Yes.

Leighta Greenleaf said...

That sounds like the best idea in the world to me.

charlene said...

Jade i have a small request ... go to my myspace and listen to the music on it ... my friend jack wrote and did all the music and whatever ... and i think it might be good new style music ... uh but yeah thats probably cuz he is my friend and all ... im just supposed to promote his stuffs ... anyways .... listen if you have time ...

Charlene said...

i have a small request to make ... i hate to bug ... but can you listen to my friends music on my myspace ... im supposed to promote the music and stuff so i thought id try and see if you would take a look ... uh yeah ...

emma said...

I have to keep my library little 'cause I have an 8g. I think I have like one MB left, which sucks.
I would totally clean my library out if there were some new AFI tracks, though.

^^

stelle said...

hahaha just strap your self down to that chair and have a go at it
yep


i never like putting anything on all music be cause sometimes i would like to be spared from the terrible shit i have gathered somewhere for some reason.
deletes are dumb

Anonymous said...

You can take 2 months off AFTER you guys finish the new songs...XD

Melodia Sadpain said...

Woooooow, my God...Now THAT's a lot of music! I thought I had a lot but I just checked and I have a little less than 2000 songs on my PC. And I own about 40 CDs or so. Feels absolutly tiny compared to your collection!

But yeah, you should indeed do it. You probably need some rest as you guys are working hard on new stuff *wink wink*(jokes XD)...

Over two months of non-stop music sounds interesting... You will either end up relaxed, insane or dead. Hmm...

<3

OptimistEmo said...

wooow.....i dont even kno that many songs, forget lik that many

btw: people in my school or wondering about sending me to a therapist about how obsessed i am about AFI
XD

Crimson Butterfly said...

i think that its impossible

Jordan said...

I think listening to the entire works of Bell Biv DeVoe would be time better spent.

Mr. Heater said...

I don't have itunes, but according to my windows media player I have to take off the next four months and then some to just listen to everything.. no wonder my computer is crashing..

JXH

OneCoolNerd said...

Yes, please, take a break.
But finish the album first! =]

twistingby said...

ive always wanted to do that

Anna-Catalina said...

That is a relief. I thought I was the only person with an iTunes library over twenty-five days (it now having been recently updated and is 29.7 days...)
Are you guys going on tours anytime soon? And when's the EP coming out?
Please tour Australia; many of us need to be re-educated about what is truly good music!!!

Much hope,

Anna-Catalina

Anna-Catalina said...

And I have another question (though you probably won't answer): Does it get confusing being a day behind people which are +GMT? Like, you guys would mourn September the 11th a day before us (us being Australia).
Oh, and what is the American view of Australians? Like, do you think we use kangaroos as transport or something?
(I know that's random, anyone can answer the second one. Just had to throw 'em in.) :) ;)

follow the white rabbit said...

wow, that's alot of musical influence!
jade, i always wondered if you could get the opportunity to do the music for a film (thus, write entire new music suited for the scenes/mood in the film), would you do it?
because i love those stuff you created, such as the music that appeared on the sing the sorrow secret sites and the decemberunderground website.
it has this mysterious/dark qualities that would be really suited for some films.

Aska said...

Wow. You win.

My MediaMonkey says it will take me only 21 days to listen to my 7,000 songs.

Hmm... I have to keep trying

So, go and have some fun for two months for me. :)

whoa

Straight To Hell said...

Mine says it would only take me 1 day...Then again my ipod doesn't hold many songs >:( Which sucks.
I'd love to spend one whole day just listening to music...Shit, now i'm going to actually try that. There goes my saturday, haha. I'm going to wake up at 9 and lay in my bed until 9 on sunday morning. Them i'm going to pass out until Tuesday...I'm going to need some coffee. I might as well get a built in starbucks in my room.

Anonymous said...

no jade we need you to come out and tour....yoyu've been hiding for months now....

bloodstainxx said...

Nice... Have some time off to relax & kick it! Listen to all those 16,867 songs!

xsweetcalamityx said...

It'd take me 5.5 days to listen to all my music. I've tried listening to start to finish once...but I just don't have enough patience. I like my music random.

Anonymous said...

man i wish i knew that many songs lol.

i also wish i could take 2 months off, but i've fuckin got skool. >:p

Mary-Jean said...

How in the HELL did you get 16,867 songs? Wow. That is quite the accomplishment. I'm sittin' down here at 1988 songs. Yay for trading music with friends! And I STILL don't have as much as you. I feel like I listen to such little music now compared to you. Haha.

Lisa said...

Good luck to ya=] GO FOR IT!

but still...
