brilliant piece! i can attest to the accumulated results, the substantive insulation, of over 50 years of collecting--LPs, books, comics, videos, CDs, DVDs and no doubt something else i've gathered without truly absorbing. there are random stacks of books and CDs here and there awaiting a first (much less second) encounter. and still i search and ponder and often buy... so: can one live long enough to divest successfully too?

We've talked a lot about this on the messageboard throughout the years.

In short: No, this never happened to me, not even when I used to buy soundtracks on a regular basis.

Back in 2003 or thereabouts, I reached a saturation point in my collecting. I had almost 1000 soundtracks and wanted to spend more time with what I already had. Plus there were other things in life that become just as, if not more important than soundtracks, believe it or not.

So from that point on, I bought very few CD's. Only the must-haves and occasional exception. Certainly not enough to have them lying around, just waiting to get a spin.
