Today I’ll be running some errands and gathering the stuffs for making the Thanksgiving menu. There will also be some time spent ’round the house hanging more pictures and figuring out how to deal with some of my CD collection so that it’s usable, or more accessible than it was before all the changes. That will be a task. Ultimately I would probably like to go thru the process of re-encoding my entire library yet again, then tie the stereo to my computer via AirTunes or something then any song could be streamed at any time via a lappy or via an iPhone. That is my goal. Then I could put the CDs in a closet somewhere for storage. That would be ideal.
Maybe I’ll embark on part of that quest today. I have the hard drive space for most of it. Eventually I will need to update to a larger hard drive. Maybe even a raid setup to make sure if a drive fails I don’t lose it all and have to do it again.
You know what might make that even better? If Apple follows up on what some rumor sites have mentioned: a streaming service that houses all your media. Then I wouldn’t likely have to worry about the backups.
With all my thoughts on making my media easy to play I’m going with a song by a band that had some serious popularity a few years back. Korn. It’s called Play Me and it features Nas on additional vocals, or rather rapping. It’s got that familiar heavy Korn sound. The amazing thing is how little distortion they really use on their guitars and yet how damn heavy it really sounds. That’s a lesson to tons of the wannabees that attempt to go after that heavy sound thinking more distortion is the way to go.
Heavy is how you play. The motive in the riffs. The vibe of the vocals, the instruments, the players. Korn is certainly a master of the heavy.
Now get out and play.
