Music Inventory


CD Inventory

So I was looking at my brand new, post-concert Battle Born CD — the first one I’ve bought in years –, and one thing led to another, as they are wont to do on a rare lazy Saturday afternoon. I found myself squatting in front of our CD/DVD rack and there they all were: physical, non-digital, non-iTunes Compact Disks with actual cover art taking up actual space. The covers were not dusty because someone actually took them out for a good wipe, but the labels were upside down and the order was all wrong. OCD and fuzzy sentiment kicked in. I plopped on the floor and took inventory:

Arctic Monkeys – Favourite Worst Nightmare

Bloc Party – Silent Alarm Remixed

Brighter – 16 Killer Tracks from Today’s Hottest British Bands

Chicosci – Chicosci

Coldplay – Viva La Vida

Defiant – Kerplunk CD Sampler 2009 (Kjwan, The Ambassadors, Faspitch, Angulo, Beach Head, Menaya, Enemies of Saturn, Blue Jean Junkies, Subscapular, Astrojuan, Favored Enemy, Sinag)

Eraserheads (complete) – Ultraelectromagneticpop, Circus, Cutterpillow, Fruitcake, Stickerhappy, Natin99, Carbonstereoxide, The Reunion Concert

Fall Out Boy – Infinity on High

High School Musical OST – 1, 2-Disc Special Edition; 2, 2-Disk Collector’s Edition; 3, 2-Disk Premiere Edition 

John Mayer – Room for Squares, Continuum, Battle Studies

Justin Timberlake – Future Sex Love Sounds

The Killers – Hot Fuss, Day and Age, Battle Born

Maksim – Variations Part 1 and 2

New Moon OST

Norah Jones – Feels Like Home Deluxe Edition

Sandwich – Grip Stand Throw, 4-Track Mind, Thanks to the Moon’s Gravitational Pull, Thanks to the Moon’s Gravitational Pull (Deluxe), Five on the Floor, <S> Marks the Spot

Silent Sanctuary – Fuschiang Pagibig

Snow Patrol – Eyes Open

Spongecola – Palabas

Sugarfree – Tala-Arawan

The Ting Tings – We Started Nothing

Twilight OST

Vertical Horizon – Everything You Want

It was a nostalgic activity, to say the least. By the time I had money to buy my own records, MP3 players and free downloads were the thing. So I took to buying only the music I knew I would love forever and happily install in my future library with the books that I will likewise love forever. (My future kids are going to hate me, getting moldy paper and scratchy disks for inheritance) The inventory revealed not a fool-proof list, and definitely not a complete one, but it’s a solid start.

I have to deal though with the itchy side effect of wanting to jump into a good gig right this moment.
