So, I'm going through, and some stuff (I have over 40GB of music!) I'm looking at going, WTF, where the hellfire did you come from?

Oh, some I can trace to bad influences, like Supernatural, on my music taste. Some I can't recall why or how they got added. So if I can't remember it, it must not be important.

I do the quick-listen test, and if it sparks a familiarity and/or "not bad" vibe, I put it in the "To Listen" (and evaluate later) playlist. If I listen to a snippet and it makes me go, "Bleh!" in the first 10 seconds, DELETED!

I have power.

Anyhoo, that's what I'm doing. Spring cleaning for the music collection.

In the meantime, NaNo continues. I've been going in fits and starts this year, partly because of work, partly because I lose my brain, partly because the story is partially stalled right now. We'll see what happens tonight during my lab shift, considering I have to drive my friend to the airport at 4:30 ACK EMMA WTF?

Come on, please finish synching before I have to leave for work...

I need to go through my music so bad. I just get intimidated by the sheer volume. This actually really inspires me. Really glad you found your iPod! Huzzah!

Also, hi! :D *waves happily*

It's daunting, not gonna lie. I went through and deleted everything I obviously don't like (The Killers, blues, some tracks that I've skipped about 30 times), got rid of some things that made me wince on first listen, and tagged the rest I didn't immediately recognize to listen to later.

Now the trick is to listen to it all, rate it, and decide if I want to keep it. And categorize it so I can find "mood" playlists easily.

Hi! *waves*

Finally...someone else who doesn't worship The Killers. Huzzah.

I think once I finish my novel I will make this my new priority. I shall use you as inspiration. :)

I despise the Killers, or at least every song I've heard of their's so far. I just. I don't like the lead singer's voice, I find their lyrics annoying at best, and I just don't like them. Nails on a blackboard. Bleh.

And yet I somehow ended up with like five tracks of theirs downloaded on various fanmixes, so I just deleted those.

Music is a great inspirational tool! Organize away! Find a wordless piece you really like and write a poem in the time it takes you to listen!
