Here's a little bit of list-shaped weekend fun to celebrate physical media on Record Store Day! I wasted most of my Saturday afternoon like most music geeks and decided to go all High Fidelity on my CD collection by sorting them in alphabetical order by artist. I recently went through the trauma of having to cut down my CD collection due to living in a tiny London flat and not having space for my 1000+ CDs. I had decided that I would only hold on to the ones that I'd classify as my all time favourites and was still left with around 200 CDs. Although I rarely play the CDs (I don't even own a CD player here), I still like the feeling of physically owning an album. It is days like today that make me love owning these pieces of art more than ever. HOW TO PLAY Organise all of your CDs / vinyl into alphabetical artist stacks and place your favourite album at the top of the stack Artists that begin with a number should go in a single numerical stack Artist names prefixed with "A" or "The" should have the prefix disregarded (for example: The Felix Culpa belong in "F", A Wilhelm Scream belong in "W") Take a picture from above to show all of the favourite albums clearly Take a picture from the side at an angle to show the depth of the stacks Type up the list if you can be arsed (if you got this far I'm sure you won't mind doing this) Here is my collection! Anathallo - Floating World Brand New - The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me Caspian - Dust and Disquiet dredg - Catch Without Arms Emanuel and the Fear - Hands Fear Before the March of Flames - The Always Open Mouth Gatsbys American Dream - Volcano The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There iko - Ludo Says Hi Jimmy Eat World - Bleed American Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly La Dispute - Wildlife Moving Mountains - Moving Mountains The New Frontiers - Mending Ours - Mercy (Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy) Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here The Receiving End of Sirens - The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi Sigur Rós - ( ) This Will Destroy You - This Will Destroy You Underøath - Define the Great Line Wilcox - Alcoholocaust yndi halda - Enjoy Eternal Bliss 65daysofstatic - We Were Exploding Anyway Insights Q, X, V and Z are totally missing from my collection! Any bands I could check out to remedy that? K, U and W could also do with a bit of company. The fact that Wilcox (a 2004 garage band from Newport, Wales that only still exist in my collection because I couldn't sell it...) even managed to get in this photo is puzzling. S and T were predictably huge thanks to Sigur Rós, Strung Out and Thrice! Happy Record Store Day!
