So, I've been looking at the last (about) 2000 CDs that I have to import into iTunes. FFS. /yawn/

Idea...

"Hey son - you want to make some cash? I'll pay you 25c per CD to import these while you're not doing anything. Whachu think?"

The library grows by the minute. Got him importing to a dedicated iTunes library on a 1T RAID 1 on my main box. He rips, they show up on my box, I import to iTunes, life is good. Only about 100 more DVDs to go (I do those myself with Handbrake) - then when I have all my CDs & DVDs done, we'll start paying the kids the same kind of rate to scan all of our photos from all of our books.

Heh. When the singularity comes, I'll be STYLIN.

Nice.  After cleaning out over 10,000 square feet of little knick
knacks my dead relatives never dealt with i resolved to do this
very thing and i scanned all my love notes, "important" memories
or sentimental/nostalgic items i had been hoarding i either
took photos of or scanned...

... emailed them all to myself and tossed it all in the trash pile...

I think it was the completely rotten lucky rabbits foot in the bottom
of a box of first place bb gun shooting ribbons from 2nd grade that
 made me make the leap..... havent looked back.... LOL

I find it takes less time to just download an artist's entire discography than to rip all of his CDs (that I already own, for realz)

LOL that's just what's left man. Some people do crochet, some cocaine. I do music and movies. I still have about 300 Laser discs here I need to scrape (things that I cannot find ever pressed onto DVD).

I'm kind of on a content-only jag, eliminating media from my life every where I can, much the way I eliminated drivers and OS bindings in about 2000, making the browser my only application portal. I often just jump utterly into a new direction, dealing with the ups and downs of it until it works the way I want it to. At the end of the day (or several years LOL) I usually have experience and a situation that is enviable.

Applause well done perk !

Me too I don't see my self without music  Violin ! But I'm too lazy to select the music that I want to listen so I leave that for the radio ! If I want oldies ... I'll search for oldies radio ... and so on !

But my neighbours don't let me to listen to my music loud ! If it's a little bit loud .... they call the police ! Fuck them dumbasses ! Just 2-3 months and then I'll move in other part of the city !  Smiley

I spent about $800 on professional in-ear monitors, which I use for both performing and for enjoying music. They shut out about 95% of the outside noise and are so clean and clear, that I don't either need or want them to be too loud. They're awesome. Now I don't even worry about waking up the very lovely PinkHat beside me when we're sleeping... Wink

Love my reference speakers, they also rock - but the miscellaneous noise of the world intrudes, and I find I need to go louder to drown interference. With the in-ears, the starting environment is really clean and so I can have the music lower and more delicate. Particularly strong for classical and jazz.
