In 2000, I took the opportunity to organize my CD collection. I took them all out of their plastic jewel cases, and moved them all to binders, each that held around 100 CDs. After I did this, I decided that I wanted to listen to each and every one of the CDs, so I embarked on a quest where I methodically went through each CD and listened to it.
My approach then was simple, I went from front to back, hitting all three binders simultaneously. That way, I spread out the music so that I wasn’t listening to 22 Billy Joel CDs in a row (yes, I probably have that many).
The whole process was pretty cool, though it drove the girl that I was dating at the time absolutely nuts, as it sort of led to a lot of random music being played, a lot of which was ‘old’ by that point. ‘Old’ meaning 5-8 years old, as I amassed a majority of my CD collection during college as I suppose is probably the case for most people. That have CDs.
