|11:27 pm - An Offer (CD Talk)|
I was very late in adopting CDs, it wasn't till about 1996 that we got a CD player. I recently acquired a 40gig IPOD, and have just finished transferring all my CDs to it. Since I only half filled it, I've come to the conclusion that I need to expand my music collection. So here's the offer tell me two (2) albums or twenty (20) individual tracks I must have and in exchange you'll get a completely random 140 min mix from my library.
My collection so far can be seen here This doesn't include my classical set or the several hundred LPs That I didn't replace with a CD.
The Following artists can be excluded (since they're my obsession)
Blue Oyster Cult
Classical music can be excluded, since my tastes there are strange and unexplainable.
Current Mood: accomplished
Current Music: Black Tape for a Blue Girl - Dream
