I've backed off caffeine use a lot, so what with the uncertain car situation on top of the relationship tension du jour and a tense commute, by the time I finished my corned beef hash wrap plate I felt exhausted and probably got to sleep ~9:30 last night.

Watching a little Futurama before bed, I suddenly realized Leela's voice is sooo familiar ... turns out it's Katey Sagal, who of course we've heard a lot of in her role as Gemma Teller Morrow on Sons of Anarchy.

Internet, including (or perhaps because of) VoIP phone system was down a while at work this morning, which didn't help my productivity any.

I've been treffing a business card from Bulldog's new graphic designer that I thought made good, understated but effective use of hot-stamp foil. Scanned it and plopped it in GDrive to hopefully remember to reference when we get somewhat settled in NC, when I'll want to think about an updated contact card design that isn't based on a squint-inducing main font color.

In the spirit of discarding things I don't need or use, I prepped notes on how to curate the music library. In thinking about ditching "angry" music devoid of any particular artistic merit or even nostalgic value... Exodus can go. ("The Toxic Waltz" isn't even written in waltz time.) Body Count, Infectious Grooves, Korn, Scatterbrain, can all go.

The gabba folder is a very mixed bag so I didn't simply delete it. Jello Biafra, Consolidated, Dead Kennedys, The Freeze, Judas Priest, Knife Party, LARD, Mexican Cheerleader, Ministry, Public Image Ltd., Radiohead, RATM, RevCo, Rollins Band, Sex Pistols, Swiz, and SOAD all bear further consideration too.

The "00 streams" folder can go. "Books", which consisted solely of public domain readings of Andersen's Fairy tales, can go. Cyborgasm 1 + 2, Nice an' Ruff, and Residents can go.

The Paul Harris collection (the father of the bride at the first wedding I officiated) bears some further thought, perhaps only because on some level I still embrace librarianship of obscurities, often without regard to WHY they're obscurities. Likewise Shut Up Little Man! and a handful of bites from the Sinistar video game. Maybe they need to get together in their own "obscura" subfolder.

I have some collections of bands or genres because I happened to like 1 or 2 songs, but the rest just don't speak to me. Shudder to Think, Ween, and reggae, for example. Weed these and remand the remains to the "misc" folder.

The Music Man soundtrack needs to get moved into /soundtracks, if it makes the cut at all. There needs to be a "samplers" folder to accumulate stuff like MTV Handpicked Vol 2. "various artists" needs to get combined with "misc" and subfolders broken out or weeded. Two Story Doublewide can go.
