12: mainly creed, nickleback, and phil collins.

a number roughly equal to the amount of angels that can dance on the head of a pin. and don't get me started on the vinyl - are you familiar with Avogadro's number? well, more than that.

I see Jim and I raise higher. (On the CDs, but not the vinyl, I admit. ;-))

I've lost count how many CDs I own - I know that I'm going to have to move house soon on account of them! I would say somewhere in the region of 5,000.

Guy Flower, Monday, 2 June 2003 08:17 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

715-ish CDs, maybe 50-60 bits of vinyl. Plus 60-odd DVDs and a couple of hundred books. And a Spiderman toy.

A more interesting question would be, "How many CDs in your collection did you actually purchase?"
All of mine, unfortunately -- about 1,600.

Jazzbo (jmcgaw), Monday, 2 June 2003 11:30 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

540

Jon Williams (ex machina), Monday, 2 June 2003 12:01 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

'bout 2500 CDs...400 LPs...maybe 75 seven-inch singles.

(I like electric sound of Jim's breakdown...the single is actually the ideal format.)

M Specktor (M Specktor), Monday, 2 June 2003 12:08 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

40 or so Cds, 1200 or so Lps, 30 7"s?

Andrew Thames (Andrew Thames), Monday, 2 June 2003 12:30 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

CD's (including albums, singles and EP's and counting each CD on a multiple cd set): 1109 and counting...

What about you, Ned? We are ready to be awed... ;)

JP Almeida (JP Almeida), Monday, 2 June 2003 13:02 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

It's Marcello and Martin's hordes I'm scared of.

Nick Southall (Nick Southall), Monday, 2 June 2003 13:09 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

eep. i haven't really been compelled to count in a very, very long time---too many and we do enough counting at work. XD

at a guess, i'd say around 400-500 CDs; just over 300 audiocassettes; around 50 12"s, 2 10"s, and a whole crapload of 7"s.

i bought a lot of them myself, but by no means all. :)

janni (janni), Monday, 2 June 2003 13:50 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

About 2000 CD's
About 500 Tapes
About 50 LP's
Roughly
Too many to find what I want to listen to and not enough to find that perfect note.

Action Jackson, Monday, 2 June 2003 13:55 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I seriously don't have an exact count. All I know is that it went over 5000 CDs a while back and could at this point be 6000.

*grumbles*

as an aside---there was this basement sale that the owner of an apartment building i lived in with my mother (when i still lived with her and was probably about 14 or so) had. and he had amassed an insane amount of vinyl---mostly 33RPM, but some 78s and some 45s as well. he sold the whole lot to my mother for $10. $10!

she was excited at first, but then after hauling it up to our 3rd floor apartment, she never did anything with it---she meant to wash it all and perhaps find a 78 player, but she never did. eventually, rather than drag them down to the Salvation Army that was just at the corner from our house, she tossed them all out in the alley. >E she waited till i wasn't home to stop help her, too. rather than someone else at least getting use and joy out of them, she just threw them away.

i'm sure someone came by and probably scooped them up from the trash, but still. what a waste! :(

janni (janni), Monday, 2 June 2003 14:03 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Ned's is big, but I always remember the tremble of fear on noticing Martin casually mention that he has music by eight thousand different artists.

Nick Southall (Nick Southall), Monday, 2 June 2003 14:23 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

i knew someone like that, too---also called Martin. maybe it's a side effect of having that name conferred upon you? :)

janni (janni), Monday, 2 June 2003 14:26 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

I play football with a guy called Martin (two, in fact) and he keeps a notebook/diary thing in which he marks each and every day of his life out of ten. An average grind day gets about a three. He's given himself two tens in his life, I think, and one of them was when he was at school and went on a field trip. He also keeps notes on every game of football he's ever played (he must be nearly 40 now) and notes down goals scored even just casual kickabouts. Lovely bloke. Works at the university in finance.

Nick Southall (Nick Southall), Monday, 2 June 2003 14:49 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Dunno 2,500? About that much probably.

jel -- (jel), Monday, 2 June 2003 15:20 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

It must be creeping up towards about 250 CD albums, 50 bits of vinyl of various sizes, and maybe 30 CD singles. All except about 10 things were bought, and I am only 20 so give me time.

Hmm, sorry, don't know why that happened.

Nick H, Monday, 2 June 2003 17:00 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I have music by, current count on the database, 8,093 acts. But that amounts to far fewer albums than you think because I'm so keen on variety and I love comps and pick up odd things everywhere. And most of my stuff isn't on CD - I've got something like 2,000 CDs, I guess. I've certainly got far less than Ned and others here.

Martin Skidmore (Martin Skidmore), Monday, 2 June 2003 20:12 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Ahhhhh... I was envisaging a room with 16,000 CDs in or something, Martin!

i hate these dick measuring contests, but i just wanted to toss in there that a close friend of mine, who's been a writer for many many years, has 40,000 cds. it's just ridiculous.
