I've got a 70 gig digital collection and a whopping 5 cd physical collection.

I used to have 100+ gigs.. I've deleted a lot as I'm no longer as into underground rap and hip hop as I used to be. But I just to have around 30,000 songs. I am currently at 8,000. Yes I got rid of a LOT of music.

i think duration is more revealing.

foobar says it would take 8 weeks, 2 days, 7 hours, 12 minutes, and 44.105 seconds to listen to my entire collection.

not including the 100gb of music i've not yet tagged...

naturally i have a lot of music i've never listened to. but i figure it's best to amass an impressive collection now, before things change and it becomes harder to obtain free music

I'm getting increasingly frustrated with my physical collection set-up! I keep recently acquired CDs on a book case next to my desk for a while, before transferring them to the real CD bookcase in my bedroom. The reason I don't file them immediately is a) the stack kind of serves as a reminder to listen to these newer (to me) albums, and b) my bedroom bookcase is overflowing and therefore I'm unable to keep it properly organized.

It's holding over twice as many CDs as it should be...the entire face of it is concealing another wall of CDs behind it. I cannot stand this madness anymore. All I can do is just put CDs where there is room, no way to organize this mess anymore. I need another bookcase of the same size to sit next to it. Probably won't happen till I move again, though, or till my ex comes back to clear out some of her furniture and the rest of her stuff.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.

This is probably the best piece of logic and reasoning I have yet heard when it comes to downloading. I tend to download a ton and forget about albums until I discover them one day on my ipod. I felt bad about it since I really like to appreciate the music I listen to, but when you put it that way, I really can't argue.

I use to think like this too, collecting really rare albums! But then I really didn't listen to them that much, so I dumped a lot of it after I graduated.

I'm thinking part of the money that used to go to the record labels is now going to the external HD manufacturers I know I need a new one.

This time, I don't wanna get one of those chunky big ones because, frankly, I'm pretty clumsy. I've bought a couple of transcend harddrives before which are nice because they're fast and drop tested and can take a lot of beating before data goes bad ..



The only iffy thing is that they only go up to about 640 GB and they cost a bit more than the 1TB bricks with their own power supplies ..

Hardrive technology is moving far too fast for me, my 500GB one would now be considered a brick and its only about a year old :s

I really would like a sexy thin one like the one above though!
