You can keep em 'for the birds and bees'
I was going to follow up on the question of whether the Internet is better at narrowing experiences or expanding them, but I don't have much new material to say about it. I'll instead post my absurdly imbalanced CD collection. It divides pretty well into three categories:
- Due South: The Original Television Soundtrack
- My Son, The Greatest: THe Best of Allan Sherman
- Shootin' the Agate: Music of Jelly Roll Morton by the Jim Cullum Jazz Band
- Space Ghost's Musical Bar-B-Que
- The Who's Tommy
- Masters of Classical Music Volume 3: Beethoven
- Happy Anniversary, Charlie Brown
- Vince Guaraldi: The Charlie Brown Sweet and Other Favorites
- Vince Guaraldi Trio: A Charlie Brown Christmas
- Wynton Marsalis: Joe Cool's Blues
- Abbey Road
- A Hard Day's Night
- Magical Mystery Tour
- Please Please Me
- Sgt. Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band
- The White Album
Whatever one concludes about my personality from that is probably correct. Also on the list should be ``Something like this...'': the Bob Newhart Anthology.
