Brian, musically

I bought a couple of Daft Punk albums (Discovery and Human After All. Meh.) from HMV for a cool $20 last week and added them to my now-completely ripped collection (except for those I’ve loaned, lost, or destroyed – and there’s a LOT of those), all at 320kbps stereo. I can’t detect any difference in quality between the original CDs and the high quality MP3 rips, and it’s nice to be able to put 4 or 5 albums on one disc to last me a week of commuting.

I thought I’d post a directory listing (dir /s m:\Brian’s CDs\ > cdcollection.txt) of my collection for posterity. Perhaps some call me old-fashioned for still buying CDs and immediately ripping them, but given the choice between DRMed digital copies or open-access physical media in an attractive package I’d rather spend my $10 on the latter.

About Brian Damage:

Who is Brian really?
I live in Toronto, Canada, and work for an IT firm. That's about as much real-world info I'm comfortable divulging here. What you read on my blog is the real Brian, but, for the sake of freedom of speech, I feel most comfortable leaving a gulf between my cyberspace and meatspace personae.

Who is Brian at work?
My ridiculous job title is "Marketing Specialist" since I wear so many hats at work. I'm a technical writer, a specialist in enterprise search technologies, an electronic forms designer, a newsletter author, system administrator... but I'm in the Marketing department so for the time being I'm stuck with this inauspicious title.
