Can you do it?

(Actually the better question, is can I focus on what I'm doing and not accidentally close the window I'm using to write a post, causing me to start from scratch all over again.)

For you music fans out there. If you acquired a CD, and all of the music on said CD just sucked, would you throw it away?

I ask because I'm at my capacity for CD's. I have no more storage space, and since I'm going to be moving in about 2 months, it doesn't hurt to get started on a little house cleaning.

Despite this however, this was somewhat of a struggle for me, for 2 reasons. 1.) I'm somewhat of a pack rat. I never throw away anything unless it is beyond repair. 2.) Its art, and as a musician, I know someone put hard work and effort into it, and even though I know it sucks, I'll still pull it out once in a while to give it a listen to see if the passage of several months has somehow magically made it better (which it never does).

Anyway, I'm just curious to see if anyone has ever run into this same sort of moral debate with themselves, post and let me know.

Before throwing them away I'd take them to a local record store and try to set up a trade account. Another option is to check out the possibility of selling them on or perhaps a local pawn shop may be willing to pay you about $0.50 each.

Unfortunately, that's not exactly possible. Several of these were acquired through a radio station I DJ's for when I was in college, and they have the little "not for sale" label on them. Others are burned CD's that have been acquired as gifts, so I'm stuck with them.

That does pose a bit of a problem. Just donate them to Goodwill or figure out how to construct a wall sculpture using old CD's.
