    I miss when my CD collection was all organized and shit. Being a student and moving more often makes that hard.

    (Plus almost all of it's in my computer now, makes me care a little less about how easily I can find a CD.)

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    We just got in a weird, off-topic aesthetics debate about modern classical music in this class.

    I'm apparently the only Steve Reich fangirl in this class.

    My mom told me she has an ABBA cassette somewhere in the house. Since I'm still in the closet, I have to search for it when she's not around.

    My CDs are sorted alphabetically by artist, then chronology. Radiohead is reserved for the top of the stack because they're the best band ever and stuff. Then I have a littler stack to the side of it for unusually-packaged CDs (you know, stuff like sleeves and boxes and jackets and stuff instead of the usual case), which I sort based on how delicate I think they are, but if there are a few of them from a single band then I'll put them together anyway. For instance, at the top of the stack is a Sigur Ros CD that I'm pretty sure is packaged in some kind of card-board material, and at the bottom is this giant Pearl Jam double album that folds out and junk.

    Man, I'm such a nerd.

    I separate the classical stuff, the jazz, the popular music, the world music and the soundtracks, and alphabetize them by band or composer.

    I also, like you @Jack Pschitt;, give my favorite band (The Beatles) a special place of honor. My Beethoven box set and Wagner's Ring Cycle also have their own places of honor as well, though mostly because they're huge.

    (for those who may also be opera geeks, I have the Georg Solti Ring from the late 50s/early 60s. It's badass.)

    I don't really have a CD collection. My parents have back home, but as far as I'm aware, it's mostly a clusterfuck.

    I keep a bunch of back ups of my house collection on assorted devices though.

    Also, god damn conclusion, I can't find a good way of phrasing it on my report.

    Interestingly, I've been trying to sell one on my charity's eBay account, no takers so it'll be out down into the shop floor soon, for a fraction of the price.

    Oh, I do that, too, for this gigantic collection of everything an obscure Floridian sludge metal band called Floor ever recorded. It traverses their early years all the way through to their third recorded - but first actually released - album, at which point they broke up, so it's not completely awesome all the way through and a good portion of it is really rather crap, but the band acknowledges that in the liner notes, so it's all good. xD Their frontman went on to form Torche, who've become successful enough that I can actually talk to other people who've heard of them.

    I have precisely two cassettes along with my butt-load of CDs. U2 and Count Basie, yo. Kids don't even know what they're missing out on.

    Wait, you've been trying to sell a copy of the Solti Ring? Or another Ring Cycle recording? I might be interested if it's the latter.

    There are not a lot of pieces of music where I feel the need to collect multiple recordings, but Der Ring is one of them.

    That version.

    @maria; Alas, it's exactly the same one! But if you want maybe I can tell some of the opera geeks I know about it?

    My parents' CD collection is a mess as well, but part of the fun of that means discovering random things I like in it and sneaking them away with my parents never noticing. This is how I got half my Beatles albums, The Tom-Tom Club and Talking Heads' Speaking in Tongues, a lot of my musical theatre soundtracks and many, many others.

    @maria; Hey, I'm curious, how many EPs/singles do you have on CD? I like collecting EPs because they're a lot harder to come by and I feel special when I acquire one. I have four EPs and one single.

    I was looking on the eBay account, it's no longer listed, must have come off today, so it'll just be sold in the store, thanks anyway :)

    One single, no EPs. Most singles/EPs I'd want are vinyl only, so I only have mp3s.
