Unplayed [Nov. 2nd, 2018|08:54 am]

We have lots and lots of CDs. Ailz was going through them yesterday, picking out the ones she might still want to play.

I thought of going through the remainder and picking out the ones I might still want to play- but I'd be fooling myself if I did. I hardly ever listen to music. I prefer everyday noise. Occasionally I'll click on something that's been posted to YouTube.

What does one do with unwanted CDs? Charity shops still carry them but I don't think they particularly want them.

There's a cardboard box in the spare room cupboard full of 78s- unplayed and all but unplayable. I suppose the CDs will join them. Someone in the far future may stumble upon them and go, "Oh look!"

"everyday noise" - I love that phrase and I'm with you on the preference.

I originally wrote "silence" but then realised the world is never entirely silent.

Manolo is the CD person in our house. Like you, I prefer the noise of life. However, in the car on long trips we always have road trip music going, as it keeps us awake. CD's are still too new a thing to be valued by much of anybody unless you have a rare/hard to find copy of something.

We sometimes listen to CDs in the car- or we used to; these days not so much. I don't really like listening to the same things over and over again.

I still occasionally buy a CD, if I want to support a band. I immediately rip it to MP3 files and put the CD away.

I bought a CD earlier this year, played it once...
