1. Obsessive much? hehe
You know better than to ask.
Actually, the fact that I have all of them in a database (which hasn't been updated for a while for reasons that are best described as yak shaving
) is mostly happenstance and completism. (Also somewhat motivated by wanting a complete list for insurance purposes.)
When I first started work out of college, I'd bring in a box of CDs every week or so, for listening to during the day. We weren't on the 'net full-time at that point, so I ended up entering the tracks myself. At some point I realized that I had about two-thirds of my CDs entered, so I made the effort to complete the list. (This was back when I had "only" 600 or so.)
I did a good job of keeping that list up-to-date until the player I was using stopped being updated. I just haven't gotten around to building a new version yet, or translating to a different format. It's all a part of my grand scheme to catalog / rip / scan my CDs to the point where I can put them away and never have to pull them out physically again.2. I need to borrow those [Sarah Fimm CDs].
I will be ripping them this weekend. Might actually try to start building my big storage box for the ripping project this weekend... got bit by that bug today for some reason. But either way, I can hopefully get you a digital copy soonish.3. Very excellent album that will have to be put on the ipod tomorrow. haha.
Even more excellent show. Still drooling over the crazy man.
SRC is odd; I like them, but I feel a little dirty for that. I suppose guilty pleasures are the best sorts. (At least they have good taste in covers: "Lovesong" and "How Soon Is Now"?!?). Ha, she really was a
stripper exotic dancer
Peter is awesome of course. Rather more freaky than when I saw him a few years ago, but...[Are filigree & shadow and Floodland] worth it or just the individual songs?
Totally worth it. f&s
is probably my favorite straight-through album (which I gush over embarassingly here
is less cohesive (and the last 2-3 tracks are just tacked-on "CD bonus tracks") but the core of the album is fantastic. Make some time to listen to it straight through, maybe the next time you're driving somewhere (once the speakers are fixed, sigh).
