Last week I went crazy buying music. Overdue to find new music. Bought a few bands I’ve never heard of to keep the discovery edge on. I also bought locally at Stinkweeds, which as well as just being in the middle of so much used CDs and vinyl and new CDs just keeps the tax local.
Also bought with a local Arizona / Phoenix flavor.

My goal along the way changed from planning to burn songs on blank CDs to planning to burn them all to help fill up a Nano. … But 1 I started to do it late and then some CDs would not import easily or quickly. This is likely due to an overworked CD player in my iBook more than anything else.
I also have borrowed a 1 TB harddrive and so am keeping all music on there.
So many songs, so much music. I ended up with about 400 songs on the Nano from songs I already had. I was only able to burn the White Rabbits, Love Me Nots and Surfside IV (given to me by band member’s wife after show)
