Mine Is Really Big But Not That Big

I am speaking of my record and CD collection, of course. When I reach the point of this guy in Pittsburgh with three million, please tell me to stop. Don't worry, I'm still at least one zero away from reaching that point.

And, in the meantime, has anyone been keeping close watch on Prince's hip replacement? I may be old as well, but my hips are still solid, I want you to know. For the record, I'm also a lot bigger than Prince who is reportedly 5'3".

Darling, smaller is better, anyway. *WINK* I know I'm going to need a hip replacement someday - from all the ways I abuse my body with athletic stuff...MMM.

I'm not certain how many records I have. Somewhere in the neighborhood of a thousand, I think. My dear friend Disco Boy has me beat, though. He has two rooms worth of records.

Hip replacement? For me, it'll be the knees and wrists. The life of a stagehand ain't good on the joints.

Rich - My knees can be a pain for me at times too. Too many years of climbing hills and mountains of California, Mesoamerica, the Andes and the Himalayas. But how else would I have been able to enjoy yak butter tea or my alpaca scarves? However, when I encounter a yeti or the lik'ichiri I will know it's time to hang it up.

Uh oh. I think it might finally be time for Junk Thief to add word verification to his comments section. I mean, unless you requested all that information about hip replacement at an accredited Indian hospital.

"Andy" - Thanks for the information. I'll pass that on the Prince when he drops by for tea this afternoon.

Dave - Perhaps you're right. Prince is a nice guy, but I'm tired of being his butt boy.

Heard the story of the music collection on the radio with all the updates. Fascinating, but what does one person do with that many records? If it wad on an ipod, that's how many years of music? Estimating 45 minutes per LP, that's over 256 years of music just on vinal.

I've been debating about that whole word verification thing - I hate get getting those comments click 'here' 'here' ....I zap (delete forever) them as soon as I see them (fearful of course of nasty viruses) ....are they effective in keeping the andy type of comments off blogs????

best of luck w/ your knees....

So, how big, um... are we talking?

Oh, and how many records and CD's do you have too?

 
At 1:32 PM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Scot - Even I don't have enough time to listen to that many.

Mouse - Until I get bombarded regularly, I'm not too paranoid about comment spammers.

CB - To answer question #2

* CDs - 9,000 to 9,500
* LPs & 12 inch singles - 3,514
* EPs - 70 to 75
* 45s - 148
* 78s - 312
* MP3s - 55,000 to 56,000 (about 40% overlap with above mentioned sources).

To answer question #1
* It's not my place to say.
* Reliable first hand accounts are available upon request.

wow, you do have an impressive...collection. Growing up, my record collection was a source of great enjoyment. I could (and still can't) go a day without music. But I must admit that in comparison yours is bigger than mine.
