Spent the last two days ripping all my dad’s cds on to my computer! I’ve bought him a mp3 player for his birthday, just because he wanted some way of listening to his music without taking boxes of cds on his holidays. I’d forgotten how long and tediously boring ripping cds is. My cd collection was ripped for me by Marie, it took her three whole days, a labour of extreme love, as I have thousands of cds … or did have, Ive given away loads of them now they are all in my p/c. i have an external hard drive I use to back them up, but I’ve lost all enthusiasm for collecting music, because it was something we shared…
I can’t get excited about a new album, because an audience of one feels like aural masturbation.
Ten more discs and I can get on with my life again.
