I’m in the process of backing up the files from server at home (which really just serves files, as I haven’t run my websites off of it in a couple years) because I know at least one of the drives in it is faulty. Rather than trying to salvage it, I’m just dumping whatever is broken and admitting that I don’t need every movie I’ve seen in the last three years as well as the entire run of Misfits of Science at my fingertips anymore. What’s really important is that I have every song I’ve ever had ready to play at a moment’s notice.

Since I’m slowly moving all of the mp3s over to my main external drive, that also means that I’ve got a lot more available for my listening pleasure here at work. How much fun is it to listen to great albums I haven’t played in forever? Today I’ve already put on The Art of Noise’s The Seduction of Claude Debussy (a staple for late nights back in the day) and am currently bopping along to The Avalanches’ Since I Left You (forget the overplayed “Frontier Psychiatrist” – the rest of the album is a brilliant display of turntablism at it’s best). Once I get all of this sorted out, I’ll really be digging throught the archives – and then you won’t hear the end of how cool I used to be…
