A Techno Week

I love music....I'm not musical but I love to listen to music. My favorite is techno/electronic and dance, although I loathe dancing, I know go figure.

I especially like house/dance music and several years ago when Napster was going strong I found this one DJ, DJ Mystik that did all sorts of great remixes of songs I loved (fast songs, slow songs, oldies, new ones, everything). The funny thing about this DJ is that no one knows anything about him.

If you do a google search, you'll turn up a few fan sites that have his tracks listed but there's very little information about who the actual person is. There are rumors floating around, but nothing substantial. I'd given up trying to find his music anywhere and just enjoy the tracks I had.....until eBay.

A few weeks ago I decided to do a query on eBay and see what I could find.......well, I found a guy that was selling all 36 albums, I didn't think twice before I hit the "buy now" button. About a week later I was in posession of my new found music: 36 albums consiting of 653 tracks +/-

I dutifully made room on my iPod so I could load them all (as you may remember I ran out of space) and decided that this would be a Trance/Techno Music week at work.

We have a "no radio" policy where I work, but I'm at the end of a hall that no one walks down except me and my cube neighbor so I listen to music, otherwise I would go crazy during the day, really I would. I've been listening dutifully all week, except when I'm at lunch or in a meeting and I've only listend to 346 tracks (if you're doing the math that works out to 52.9% of the total).

Perhaps we'll have to run Trance/Techno week into next week too.

All I can say is thank goodness I don't ingest caffeine.

This is a case of TOO much of a good thing! Then again, I could never listen to 8 hours of pure house and trace! Much less a week, or TWO!

But as long as your having fun, aren't putting your co-worker out, have at it.

We also have a "no radio" policy -except for our corner - but since no one put up a "no iPod" policy, everyone's wearing them instead :-)
