Somewhere around 200, I think. I could be off by 20 or so either way. Which reminds me, I need to catalogue them again.

about 450, give or take about 25! I sold some too a little while back about 50-80. It would probably be alot more(I used to buy about 1 or 2 a week), but I've been so busy with work, that I hardly even go to concerts anymore, and with the advant of sites like Napster, Kaza, and Limewire; the last album I bought was the Live Radiohead. Before that was the Sndtrk to EpII, before that was Radiohead, and Tool's latest, and before that was Perfect Circle and the Sndtrk to EpI, so you can see how many times I've bought new cd's in the last 4 years! God!, I've become so pathetic! I really am Old, what gives! :( There used to be a time when nothing would ever stand inbetween me and my music, and now I'm just old! :rolleyes: I remember once I quit a job just 'cause there were three concerts all within a weeks time that I wanted to go see, so the weekend of the first I just uped and left! What has happened to me?!!! UUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I'm kind of the opposit lately. Since last Aug or so I've probably bought about 25-30 CD's, which is a lot for me. About 10 or so are new music, but I've been getting a lot from the discount bin at Target for older music that I've always wanted but didn't want to shell out $15-20 for.

I used to download quite a bit from Kazaa, but a number of things happened: I was worried about downloading a virus first of all; it took too long to download a song at 56K... I mean 38.6K! which is what my connection usually is; while waiting for the song to download I became bored and started looking for porn, which I don't really consider to be a problem in and of itself. The problem was when I became bored w/ traditional (or "good") porn and started looking for freaky stuff :P ; lastly, the quality wasn't always there.

Last time I counted, I had somewhere in the range of 400 CD's. Problem is, there are a lot that I don't listen to anymore, but can't make myself trade in. Take for example my Winger CD. Haven't listened to it since the early 90's, but I keep thinking, one day I'll pull it out, dust it off and give it a listen.

Oh, and Dr_Evazan22, you are right about the weird stuff out there. Makes you wonder what posses people to pose or do that kind of stuff.

Regular CD's, i think about 400 range.

Live shows- roughly about 200 CD's. (100+ shows)

I have just over 300 cds. The count has fluctuated much over the past 8 years, every time I get a bunch, I trade a bunch in. Columbia House pads the count nicely, with things that have like one good song on them. Who the hell picks out 11 cds at any one given moment anyhow?

My buying/concert going spiked in the mid 90's, as my University education was coming to an end. Music meant everything. Nowadays, I pretty much only listen to my music in the car, and only when the kids aren't in there. Im beginning to feel super old too: "From empty beer bottles to empty baby bottles in 8 short years - a documentary by jjreason".

Dunno, never counted. A lot. Tons of CD singles. I prefer singles mostly for the B sides which tend to be more interesting than the A sides. Detest more than anything live albums. I want to hear the music not a thousand screaming idiots drowning out the band.
Never download music. Just can't be bothered with the wait. I just wait for music to go out of 'fashion' and then scoop up half price CD's.

I have alot of imported singles of that sort from various artists.

I can't quite remember but I think it's somewhere in the 5-600 range. I haven't bought more than 1-2 albums a year for the last 3-4 years total. Most of my purchasing came from the used CD stores around the college campus.

Cassettes 500+
Records 30+

It took me a while to convert to the new format of cds.

sorry...it's a joke...a bad joke...but....anyway....

a local radio host Drew Garabo on Real Radio 104.1FM and Xtreme Talk XM (I think) says it.

Someone will call a ramble on for what seems an eternity...he'll ask if they'd like 2 cd's.....when they say "YEAH!", he says "Would you like to see dees **** on your chin?

The people get ****ed and hang up, but some girls say they'll take him up on the offer...

I have about 200 or so. I just bought a CD today actually. The new Live one. I would of dl'ed it but it came with a DVD which kind of made it worth the 13 dollars.

bobafrett
05-22-2003, 12:10 AM
Oh! I heard the one song off of the new "Live" album. The song where he talks about looking into his daughters eyes and knowing that there is a heaven. It's very touching, and I always tear up when I hear it. I'm going to add that one to my CD collection.

the last time I counted it was 600+, lots of one track wonders, lots of import shop experiments gone wrong, but lots of great singles and rarities too. most of it from those twenty-something years where I'd go out once every two weeks and by like ten disks then only end up seriously listening to like three, stupid. now I'm down to about ten a year. tgo-Jonna brings up a nice off-topic-er, who out there swears by vinyl? I personally love it. I always buy all my "stranded on a deserted island" albums on vinyl when I can find them and only listen to them by myself as a total indulgence.

Jargo
05-22-2003, 07:45 AM
It's the crackle and the pops on old vinyl records I love. CD's are great but stuff recorded in analog and laid down on vinyl will always impress me more. I just can't afford both and with the storage space required for the vinyl I had to go with the smaller option. My uncle had a vinyl collection the size of a football field once and that was like pure heaven. Just a whole room devoted to music and tucked away in the quietest part of his house. Just a sheer jpy to go and listen to the originals of stuff by Zepelin or Black Sabbath or Queen. Marc Bolan, David bowie. They all sound good on CD but listening to the original release vinyl beats the crap out of the CD experience.

Ah, I still remember the first time CD's started coming out. They had a very limited selection of artists. The first time I ever saw a section of CD's was at a Sears store. The section was about as big as the CD singles section at Wal-Mart. I remember they had a demo CD and it had been played, and touched by so many people that it was scratched and it skipped. I remember telling my friend that this new music technology wasn't going to last. Looks like I was wrong. Now it's very hard to find any Vinyl. Does anyone remember when CD's first came out, and they had the large rectangular boxes with the artwork, then several artists complained about all the waste of cardboard. I still have all the boxes that my first dozen or so CD's came in. My first CD ever was Fleetwood Macs "Rumors". I don't know why I remember that, because I haven't a clue what the second CD I ever purchased was.

I do miss the days of Vinyl, but I do remember listening to 8-track tapes. I don't miss those at all, nor my Columbia House cassettes getting eaten in my tape machine.

I can't count the number I've got, but it's probably between 1500 and 2000. I worked as a music reviewer for a while in college, so I have an excuse. :happy:

This week, I picked up the new ones by Live and Weird Al, and the collection of covers of John Hiatt songs. I could download most of the stuff I have, but I kinda like having the actual CD in my collection. Besides, with the only computer I have access to that can download songs at 56 baud (or whatever the heck it's called), and CD's being so cheap when first released (the most expensive of the three new ones was Weird Al at $11.99), it's worth paying for them to save time in my book.

Bobafrett, the whole album is pretty good, but get it quick soyou get the DVD of the concert footage as well. It makes it seem beter that you get more for the money.

I remember those goofy CD boxes. I hated them. I am glad they package them like they do now.

I alsolike the crackle of vinyl. Ihave about 50 albums and 100 45's still but no phonograph to play them on. I have the SW X-mas album. Iwould love to hear that again. I hated getting tapes eaten inthe player as well. I remember countless hours of transplanting tapes into othe cassettes so I could play them. So annoying. ANd to have themeaten was worse. Doing surgery on cassettes was wack.(for lack of a better word that isn't offensive to some)

What store kidhuman? My problem is, I will walk into a Best Buy or other music store, and my mind will go blank. I like shopping at Target, because they play the videos, and sometimes that refreshes my memory as to what artist or CD I'm looking for. I tend to buy on impulse.

As far as the old CD boxes go, I liked them, but I'm glad they did away with those, because I have a tendency to keep certain packaging. With over 400 CD's to date, that would be alot of space taken up for empty CD boxes. I just started throwing out some of my packages for the figures I do set free.

I got mine at Wal-Mart. You can order it from CDnow.com. But any store should carry it since it just came out. I hate that mind go blank experience. It always happens to me.

bobafrett
05-23-2003, 08:29 AM
I'll try Target before I hit Wal-Mart, only because Wal-Mart edits the music that they sell. While I find this okay for their family friendly image, I don't believe in getting an album that I choose to listen to, having words edited out.

I bought the Live Guns n' Roses from Columbia House only to find it was edited. It was the G n' R Live era '87-'93, but it doesn't say anything about it being edited on the CD.

I sometimes walk into a music store like HMV and just go blank when faced with a superstore full of every kind of music you could ever wish for. It's like being over faced with food. Where do you start looking? I swear though, when I win the lottery jackpot I'm spending a half million on music straight off the bat. Just walk in slap the cash on the desk and tell them to clear the store cause I'm buyin' big. Then simply walk round filling shopping carts with stuff. Entire back catalogs worth. Everything but cheesey cover albums and britney bloody spears. Not that I'd ever stand a cats chance in hell of ever listening to it all but if i had that much money that's what i'd do. :)

Which is completely off topic but what the hell.

I ony got into CD's when a friend gave me a reconditioned CD ghetto blaster for christmas. Living alone at the time my CD's helped keep me from going nuts.... or maybe they didn't. :crazed:

Ever since I got married (about 10 years ago) I just haven't found any CD outside of soundtracks that I just want to go out and buy. It seems like any music I want to hear other than John Williams I can find on the radio. A station just started up in my market not too long ago whose format is 90% 80s rock music (for you LA peeps, stuff they used to play on KROQ). Since that's my fav, all I have to do it turn on and that's it. If I want a particular song I just get it off Kazaa and burn a copy.

There hasn't been one CD of pop/rock music I've wanted so much that I've gone out and bought since U2's Achtung Baby.

For those of you keeping track, yes I am under 35 and no I don't stick my head out the window and yell at those goll-darn neighborhood kids to stay off my lawn. ;)

Target also gets edited CDs. The one I got at Wal-Mart wasn't edited.

Wow, I didn't know that. I was at Meijer a couple months back and they had both edited and explicit lyric versions of the CD's.

Hey, I picked up the Live CD today at Target, as it was on sale. I was blasting the song "Heaven" in my cars CD player. I also picked up Johnny Cash's American IV: The Man Comes Around CD. It also had a limited edition DVD with it.

Yes, I haven't had the chance to check it out yet, but I know the DVD is in there. I might check the DVD portion out tonight as my son is spending the night at a friends house.

The Johnny Cash CD/DVD has only the video for his cover of "Hurt" on the DVD. It's all cover songs on the CD from what I can make of it.

Yep. But I think all their covers had bizarre images; that was a '70s/'80s constant. The pyramid with eyes always made me think of the Masonic back-of-the-U.S.-dollar-bill. The songs on the album are almost all about eyes or things you see: "The Smile Has Left Your Eyes," "Don't Cry," "Eye to Eye," "Open Your Eyes," "Midnight Sun," "True Colors." I got this CD several years ago from Best Buy or something for $9.99 I think.
