The Great mp3 slaughter of 2007


I’m going through my mp3s and trying to cut out anything that I wouldnt really listen to if it came up in rotation if I was driving around. I’m a data packrat so I cant really bring myself to actually delete any files (hard drives are so cheap!), but I’m removing their check mark (effectively turning them into second class citizens) 🙂 and not copying any tracks without a check mark to my iPod, which is really where I listen to music from anyways.

It’s rapidly turning into a larger job then I could ever have imagined. I can easily see this becoming a month long project.

Anyone got any tips or tricks they use to keep their mp3s organized?

  1. Suprises me that you took Billy Idol off the “rotation” and morrowind_title even more so

    Used to be that You could never take a ride in Skip’s car without listening to some Billy Idol

  2. Oh my gawd your right! I need to go back and fix that..good thing I didnt sync my Ipod yet! Without my Billy on the drive home I’d have uncontrollable roadrage and who knows what would happen..

  3. Since I’m such a good friend, If I have to I will go to your house and burn you up a Billy Idol CD real quick and then deliver it to your work..let me know man

  4. No I’m good, thanks man. I panicked for a second but a quick check of the Ipod revealed that I still have all B.I. albums present and accounted for as well as all the bootlegs and rare tracks.
