I have often used music to construct, and to judge, my world - it is one of those rare things which instills meaning in my world.  When I have been most detached from the world emotionally, I have also been the most detached from really listening to music…  I am working on my own theory of music which can accommodate my various insights and feelings about music in my own life.  Back in the 'old days' I used to record compilations from LPs onto cassette.  A good 90 min tape only had to be turned over every 45 minutes - that was better than an LP.  No auto-reverse for this kid.  Then we got longer tape and CDs.  I was able to make compilations from others' CD collections onto tape.  I have probably 2 dozen or so of these tapes from about 1979 to about 1997 or so with most probably coming in a few big bursts, sort of like extinctions…

The following is a list of the CDs that I have recorded mostly for myself, often for others.  I got my audio CD recorder in mid-1999 about the time of my divorce because there were too many CDs to split.  Seeing as that is also about the time I came back to life in a very real sense I naturally started recording compilation CDs - but from now on they'd serve in a more symbolic way.  They became about the construction, deconstruction, reconstruction, delineation, and judgment of the world in which I find myself, and the one I would like to see realized…   In other words, they are, in a sense, my diary.  I'd like to issue a hearty caveat lector though.  Do not read too deeply into any particular lyric, concept, etc.  In some cases I have captured the mood better than in others, in some I can no longer recall the original meaning, sometimes I can but it has a different one now...  These are all consequences of, or are they data, or maybe premises for, my theory of music.
