Books and music, the two constants in my life. My vinyl collection(along with my expensive turntable) is packed away yet I couldn't bear the thought of parting with it. The CD collection has far outgrown every crate and case I've bought to contain it, and my pile of 'to-be-read' books will literally stack to the ceiling. And now I have a Kindle and a growing collection of ebooks yet to be read.
If I was still in the Navy, I'd almost be looking forward to a long deployment where I could catch up on all this reading and listening. I used to justify purchasing a bunch of new music CDs from Hypnos or Steve Roach by making that part of my 'pre-deployment kit.' It had to last me at least 6 months. Now, with music downloads, Low Light Mixes, Hypnagogue, and a bunch of other music sites, there really is no shortage of new music to keep me occupied, but it seems as though I have less time to fall in love with a new release. I guess I have the collecting problem as well.
