The Culling XVII: 1st Anniversary

May 18, 2009


This week marks the first anniversary of my record collection culling project. In that time I’ve listened to 2,612 albums (falling short of my goal of 10 a day), culled 459 and kept 2,153. I’m nearing the end of the vocal albums – just a few barbershop quartets to get through – and then I’m on to movie soundtracks, the section I’ve been most eagerly anticipating since I started this task.

    Congratulations! I’ve been trying to do the same, but am nowhere near that mark. Is that cut out head Leonard Cohen? I was lucky enough to see him in Oakland last month.

      It is indeed. I did cut-out faces on sticks for a party – people had to present awards in character.


    Is that Mr. Dressup?!!

    You’re lucky.

    WOW!! Is that your album collection? Whats the total? Have you listened to the entire collection? Congrats! I love seeing huge music collections.

      Yes, that’s my album collection. I don’t know how many records yet, probably around 3,500 when I’m finished culling. I’m in the process of listening to every record.
