It has taken me more than 19 months but I am now very close to completing the digitization of my music collection. I am all for the physical formats of music media but I am also not so much of a technophobic. MP3s bear the seven plagues of the pharaohs but they are much more practical and easy to be filed. I will always be a fun of tapes and vinyl or even the (once demonized) cd but every record I own is going to be converted to mp3 and stored to my pc.
Furthermore, I believe that music should be listened to as a whole work. That means I always listen to albums as a whole and not to random scattered tracks. Last night my demons payed their respects to me, once more. That means no sleep throughout all night. Wine and smokes were a nice company. I also turned winamp's shuffle on to see what will come out of the random track reproduction from almost three thousand albums. Wine and smokes and music I love but picked and played at random by the machine. I wrote down the tracks that were played. I can hear those 'who the fuck cares' little voices in my head but you can die a horrible death. Besides the vast majority of the visitors of my lair are still leeches looking for downloads. So they will be treated as intruders. In that context it is entertaining to namedrop artists and albums and hope that google will bring them to my claws, hoping to find a download. Sometimes the idea of wasting a lowlifes worthless time is irresistible.
