I'm glad we've agreed on Talisman and Harem Scarem or I might start to think you take the task of critiquing my posts/thought processes a bit too seriously
I appreciate the ongoing interest in my life , my sanity and my Top 50 selection process but you're jumping to some conclusions here .
I work my arse off mate - it just so happens that during the 12 hours a day I sit in front of a PC/on the road running my own business that I have music cranking much of the time and I'm enjoying rating my collection.............sorry if that's too intense? Without my music I probably would
Like I keep saying I'd be doing the ratings anyway so as to create some cool playlists (or just for fun
) and the 5 star rating bit will have nothing
to do with the final rankings really. It may not be a huge collection compared to many here but from 2500+ albums (two thirds of which I really rate) down to 50 takes a little thought and yes............I'm the sort of bloke who , when taking on even such an insignificant task in an area I'm passionate about, will enjoy it more if I do it semi-seriously.
The whole idea is that they will all have similar album ratings (v high) and then I can rank based on the whole album experience, time spent with them , their influence on me (mostly) and others. The process of listening to my top 100-200 over a few months will refresh the memory and make the task of deciding the group of 50 a bit easier. The top 20-30 are easy after some thought - the 31-50 slots (many of which I won't have listened to in quite some time) not so much. I'd be listening to stuff all day anyway so why not all my all time faves and kill two birds with one stone?
Hoping we can get back to talking music rather than analysing huge world issues like whether I'm taking my top 50 list too seriously ............
Off to get my fix of Blacklist for the week..........
