Subject: How bad is your CD habit ??

Talk about your habit. Is it time for a twelve step group yet? Is there any conflict with your significant other? Do you slip CD's { or tapes } into the house without telling them? Do you justify it to yourself by saying " I bought it used - at half price - so it doesn't count".

How many do you buy per month? One, two, more? When do you know that just one more will get you thrown out of the house. These are serious questions, I need to know ............. for a friend - that's it - yeah - for a friend. He wants to know. How many is too many??

That's OK, Wes. Your time for new CD's is rapidly coming to an end. Just another month or two (isn't it?) and then you'll be too busy to go looking for new CD's.

I should put this on the How Do You Know... thread but this seems to be a good place for it. Get a 10 pound sack of sand or flour or something and hold it draped against your shoulder. That represents the lightly sleeping colicky baby who will cry if you put him down. Now try to do anything that you like to do without losing the "baby" or waking him in the process. Welcome to the next six to eight months!

Seriously, though, here is something to think about. When the babies start to move around on their own you will need to kid-proof the house and that will include your free standing CD case if you have one. There is nothing more chilling than a heavy crash followed by the terrified wail of a child.

My CD's are well under control. That is they were until the cat knocked over the case and spilled them all on the floor. My latest additions are the two that Gordon gave me for selling his product at the last two concerts. Fortunately my poor control of finances and having a kid in college generally work to curtail my purchases in that direction.

Mister and I get a lot of free CDs because we have a good buddy who's a journalist in the Music Bidness. At one time she did publicity for a bluegrass label so we have a pretty good selection of bluegrass. Once in a while we'll go over to her house and she'll say, I've got a box for you to go through, just take the ones you want and leave the rest. Probably half of our collection we didn't actually pay for.

Depending on our mood (and the wallet) between Mister and me, we probably buy an average of 3 a month. Sometimes more, sometimes less. :)

I have the horrible symptom of getting the cheapies just for a listen. Pawing through discount racks and thinking "Hmmm..this looks interesting, and only 3 bucks...whatthehell..." and going home with more invested than I would have spent on new cd's.

The new ones, I probably do more research on, but love them just the same. I think I'll have to go with Matt on this one, a new one every few weeks.

just as a side bar....do you find this applies to your reading habits as well??

Hate to do this to all of you but I hate CDs. My addictions are books and records. Last week, the owner of my company looked through a collection of books, records and assorted crap that I had ordered and commented "Your house must be a GD museum". Actually, that about sums it up. Only three cats in residence right now so I have lost the "zoo" look.

Most of the time it's easier to find older music on CD re-issues than it is to dig through mountains of old LPs to find what you want. Then again, I'm not talking folk or anything like that.

OK, I'll confess my dirty little secret. I don't buy many CD's but I will spend an hour on my knees looking through boxes and bins of old records. (for you uyoungsters that is a device that looks like a CD but is larger, usually black, and has a smaller hole in the middle. My current collection runs to 9 feet long and I can't put them in a cabinet. I keep them in boxes since the cat decided to use the spines to sharpen her claws. The stack of boxes dominates my living room.

Sob! I feel so much better now!

BTW, in Portland there is a used record shop. I know where most of them are in this area. On the wall in a baggie are the small pieces of one or maybe two broken CD's. The baggie is labelled, "Our CD Collection".

When ever I have cash on me, I spend it on CDs. When I don't have enough, I usally get some from an ATM! I don't count them, but I'd say I buy one to two a week. It's an expensive habbit for a college kid with a 20 hr week job.
On the book note, I just spent $25 dollars (that's more than I had to spend) on a book just because it is by and about Al Green!

Sins, it's the smell that makes the collection great! Every once in a while I open a box just to inhale that wonderful aroma. Then, as long as I have the box open I dig through and get one or two out to put on the stereo. Next thing I know the afternoon is gone.

CD's have no smell and are sterile and without personality.

I need to move the stereo into close proximity to the computer so I can have my records and Mudcat too!

Back when I had an actual day gig, I was buying one a week or so. Now I'm managing my addiction and only buying one or two a month. And the CD habit competes with the book habit, so my credit cards never really chill off.

And Mudcat has been the WORST for my habit. It's like living in a bar when you have a drinking problem ...

Let me put it this way. Last week I received two CD's I had been looking for forever. Actually, they were albums I had in the 60's and didn't know if they ever made it to CD. After maybe 20 hours or so of searching the internet for them, I located them for sale in Japan. Ordered them through gemm.com (check it out). Only cost me $30 per CD, plus $6 for gemm, plus $8 and change to ship. Had to wait about a month to get them and the whole time I never really thought they would make it. All this and I still feel like I got a great deal. So don't talk to me about a habit. This is waaaayyy beyond that. I actually have to really work hard to go through all this.

BTW, they were two albums by John Simon (who most people never heard of unless they looked to see who produced the early Band albums)

I have a bit of a reputation around our parts for buying CD's, its the old phrase, "Sam will probably have that already" that just keeps popping up. There is a lot of pluses to my addiction:

1 - I can learn LOADS of tunes & songs ect from around the world.

2 - I can learn the material off the CD then play it with the artists themselfs. This happened to me when a norwegen band Chateau Neuf Spelmannslag came to england and lost there accordionist, so I stood in. I also learn't some of Kepa Junkeras tunes and played them with him at Cambridge.

As you can see a Cd buying addiction is more than an addiction its a lifestyle. But hey, I don't care at all!!!!!

Cheers, Sam

I'm probably at about ten a month. Many are to replace vinyl and tape. I am often influenced by Mudcatter's opinions. I was even looking for Patrick Sky the other night based on 'Spaws recommendation.

I have been trying to find Leon Redbone lately without success. I'm not one to buy over the net, so I scrounge through Sam's, HMV and a few used CD stores.

The good news is that I commute about an hour each way and I get to listen to a lot of music in my car.

I agree, Sam. It is a lifestyle. I learn music instead of doing stuff that other people spend a lot more money on. The usual amusements aren't all that charming to me, but music never ceases to be. And talk about eclectic? My mixture of CDs is frighteningly eclectic.

One of the few things I miss about living in Wyoming is the vast spaces between towns -- three hours drive on the interstate to the next actual town from where I was living (and Kat still lives). So much opportunity to listen to CDs and to learn music. I quit measuring distances in miles or hours and started figuring how many CDs I could play before I got there...

I usually buy at least 3 singles a month, and albums if I've got the money.

I've got too many now though! I mean, 56 albums and 30-odd singles!?!

I just bought two more this week. :) This year I remembered that I really do like ROCK music. So there. :P

Our book habit is pretty bad, too... also dealing with a yarn habit, and a fabric habit, and a FOOD habit... of course, that last one is pretty hard to get away from...

Steve,
I found some Patrick Sky CDs and LPs on Ebay. Worth a search. My purchases came from Spaw and Kendall's recommendations. Between them and Rick Fielding, it's a wonder I can keep the mortgage payments up.

Sinsull,

Thank you, I'll have a look. I usually don't buy things over the net though.

I have a local CD store that will order stuff in for me, dropped by the other night and they were closed. Maybe on the weekend.

Latest purchases, Miles Davis Kind of Blue, Willie Nelson Night & Day and Spirit, and the first Bob Dylan. Some awfully good music.

I have so many CDs now that they won't fit under my tape anymore! So what to do? I built my own CD rack...with an artist's touch, of course! It's jet black, has a raised table-top, removable shelves, decorative curved support outriggers...well, you get the idea.
