A Poll and a Question, my mofos!!!

I have 2 questions for the whole lot of you!!!

1. How do you store all your music? And how would you like to if you had the chance or even the money?

a. Original CDs
b. Burned CDs
c. I-pod
d. On the computer
e. Other - please explain

You can choose multiple options of course! For me, it's a, b and d.

2. What's the album or CD from your collection you listen to the least? And has this thread made you reach for it and give it another try?

Mine's probably Alice In Chains 'Facelift'. Dirt is the one I listen to more often but I haven't listened to Facelift in a long long time!

other - all of the above. oh crap, i didn't realize you could chose more than one. i should learn to read first before posting.


stabbing westward, i don't even know the name of the album. i don't even know if i still have the cd, although i imagine i do. i've never listened to it. ever. i didn't rip it to my computer when i ripped all my stuff. and no, i really don't want to listen to it now.

why? hasn't this thread jogged your memory enough to maybe want to give it another listen?

I have all my CDs backed up on my computer via iTunes, but I don't own an iPod because they are way overpiced, IMHO. So I have all my CD cases in CD racks in my bedroom, while most of the discs themselves are stuffed in CD notebooks or wallets of various sizes so I can tote them to my car and play them in the CD player there. Oh, and I have some burned discs that are either mixes or concert bootlegs stored in the notebooks.

The CDs I don't listen to very often tend to be ones I never plan to listen to again but am too lazy to take to the used CD store, so I'm not sure how to answer the second question.

I have original CDs on a couple racks, and I have a box in my closet with the free CDs that come with some music magazines I buy. The racks have filled up though, and I have 9 new ones to put away, so...I think some of my less listened to CDs are gonna be put in a box in my closet as well. My CDs go into iTunes, which go on my iPod. Not all of my CDs are in iTunes and my iPod...but the majority are.

i keep buying new cds racks because i have a lack of space to just build a giant one. someday i think i'll take apart my bed, move my desk into the basement, put my mattress on the floor and just use an entire wall for shelving. but that would take work and effort.

the greatest thing about getting an ipod: for a couple years i lugged 4 binders (the smallest holding 80 cds, the rest held +200) to the university radio station and back once a week for my show. i'm so used running things off my ipod and out of the cd stacks (vs. out of the stacks plus my own cds) that there's no way i could ever go back to that.

I have tons of original CDs, accumulated over the last 20 years or so. At some point, I'd like to store all my stuff electronically, but I'm not going to transfer them to iTunes or mp3 format and lose sound quality. I guess I could bitTorrent them all, but that would take a long time to do...

As for a CD I hardly listen to, there's so many to choose from at the moment. I wouldn't know where to start.

I've got loads of original CDs (which are all gathering dust, thanks to the iPod). I haven't transferred all of them to my computer, as it would just take up too much space and be too time consuming. As for storing on burned CDs, I only do that when I purchase a CD online through iTunes and like to have a hard copy. Sad thing is, I usually end up re-purchasing the CD just so that I can have the album artwork.

Album I listen to the least? Wow, that's a tough one. Most of the Chili Peppers' albums, some ones from my youth that I should have burned by now, and the two Coldplay albums I have (didn't buy X&Y - downloaded and deleted) come to mind.

And no, I haven't the faintest desire to listen to any of them.

1. I have the original cds but I'd love an ipod of these days.

2. War but I skip The Refugee and Red Light. To U2 tracks I hate the most!

Okay, I just noticed that there was a 2nd question for this thread.

My least listened to CDs are N'Sync, Christina Aguilera, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears...you get the idea. I know, I shouldn't even own them...but they are my least listened to, so that makes it okay, right???

I don't like being called a mofo.

Question 2:

Spice Girls: Forever

I have never listened to it. I bought it for fun. Yes, I was drunk.
