  1. I have a CD collection. It was beautifully maintained until about 2002, when I first got DSL. Then it somehow mysteriously tailed off, with a low recruitment rate. Then when I moved to NZ in 2008, it got put in a box and left in a loft, and I just bought stuff on iTunes or streamed. Since I came back last year, I've been trying to decide what to do with this frozen-in-amber cultural artefact. This weekend I decided - I'm going to cut out the dead wood, then build it out again. Vinyl is too much like hard work, but I do like having something physical to represent my music, and I like to imagine my daughter might blow the dust off an old Bowie CD in 14 years time and learn a thing or two, in a way that she never would with streaming. I'm done globe-trotting, and my new house has enough space for a CD rack or five. Combing the charity shops, market stalls and record fairs of York this weekend, I got 11 minty albums for £28, including some real gems - I think plenty of other people are just dumping their entire collections at the moment, so there are some uncommon lovelies out there. Anyone else sticking with CDs? Anyone want to get rid of any?
