"Wow. I've never seen so many negative comments."

Are you new here? I'm always bothered by the ever-present negativity that seems to permeate the comments here.

Any comment that contains any iteration of the phrase "I solely registered to express my dislike for..." very likely comes from someone not invested in the site on which he/she is commenting. You're certainly free to take your window-shopping approach to blog reading elsewhere, thanks.

Nope. As of a few weeks ago, I started getting rid of the jewel cases for my 1,500-plus CDs and started storing the discs/artwork in purpose-built cardboard boxes. What once was a mammoth display, is now neatly tucked away in a closet. I haven't listened to a CD in ages anyway. Free at last... sort of.

Hanging the mandolin won't solve the problem of what to do with the case, though. Right?

I'm totally on board with this, and I'm working toward finding a solution for getting rid of the 1000-plus jewel cases currently in IKEA cabinets in our den.

However, keep in mind that this particular setup makes it much easier to have all of your movies/albums/etc. stolen at once, unless you have a digital backup somewhere secure.

I think there will be a market for small music players for quite some time, though their form will certainly change. I certainly don't want to take a smartphone or full-sized iPod to the beach, on a jog or when mowing the grass, for example.

Old Navy messenger bag. $5 on clearance. I got it six years ago with our first son, and I still use it all the time. I refuse to use my wife's Lands End tote bag.

As someone who is currently packing his (and his family's) belongings in advance of a move later this week, the thought of transporting this chaos gives me the shakes.

No thanks.

The necessity of workarounds like this are a big reason why some people don't like buying DVDs and pirate the films instead.

Oh, PeterJohn. The days of the specialized music studio are fading fast, my friend. Independent and major-label musicians are getting fantastic results from living room-based recording STUDIOS.

I've recorded in an expensive studio, and I've recorded at home; I prefer the latter. DIY or die.

By the way, I'm wondering if you think that Sam Beam's (Iron & Wine) first album isn't maximized for full enjoyment simply becasue it was recorded at his house on a desktop.
