So I make these playlists for people called REPEATR. Google Reader (which is like the gmail of information collection) locks down all these super finished music blogs. I download the tracks and throw them into a folder on my hard drive called “_unsorted randomness.” When I am so inclined to listen to new music I grab a random chunk and rate them on a highly intricate five star system. Four stars means this may be good, listen again. Five stars means this track is awesome. Everything else gets deleted. This folder hovers between 20 and 30 gigs. The other day when I emptied my trash I noticed that I had about 27 extra gigs of space on my computer. doh, deleted unsorted randomness somehow. no big deal since I backup my stuff (which you should do too because sometimes brains get the stupids).
I plug in ye olde external drive and restore unsorted randomness but something seems amiss. yes, it turns out that I marked that folder as exempt from backups for some reason. so basically I have zero new music right now. SAD PANDA!!!
if you’ve ever enjoyed my playlists now is a really good time to send me some music.
