Hiya,

When do you know what you truly like/dislike ??

I'm clearing out some stuff. I've heard your tastes tend to stick @/after a certain age. I've a lot of cds but haven't played some cd/dvds for *ages*– they're playable but have seen better days; when I said words to this effect it put the kibosh on them going in our annual tombola. My room's tiny & there's nowhere to keep all my stuff. 1 suggestion was to throw them in the bin. I was horrified. My taste is often described as "terrible". My parents always say/said "keep it – you may not need it *now * but you might do *one day* -- any ideas ??

CD are easy, maybe dvd's too get an iTunes account and load them in, back them up to dvd then get rid of the originals, you still have your music but you save most of the space.

As for *when* one learns who and what we are- great question. I am 78 and there are times I still don't know.

I've edged away from folk since I have been in my 20s, but there's still some bits that I like. I'm much more of a rock chick now, but this may change again as I get older.

You only really learn about yourself from comparing the reflections you get from other people's reactions to your own subjective ideas. That in no way commits you to leaning toward either viewpoint.


I spent many, many years not paying much attention to other's reaction to me... it left me wondering at times. Now I 'listen' to the more subtle ways others view me, but I have become more & more comfortable with how *I* think, act and interact.

Bill D. Strange. I spent decades in therapy trying not to pay attention to my regard for what others thought of me.

Hopefully never. Don't bother trying to define who/what because your efforts take time away from enjoying who/what you are.

Elmore: Yes, I realize that worrying about what others think IS the more common way of reacting. When I realized that I seldom did, even as a shy teen, it was a revelation. I have no idea why I approached it that way.

Keeping personal stuff is useful so that later you know who you were. The more personal, the more valuable.

CDs and DVDs can be stored without their "jewel cases", separated by paper with little tabs.

I never throw away music or books. Indeed I am a bit of a hoarder but I did throw away 8 TVs and monitors recently.   And I am about to throw away some of my late mother's clothes - explanation being I was going to sell or recycle them, it's not a Bates Motel sort of thing.

Yeah, upload them all to iTunes.

If still in doubt throw out the CD cases, repackage the discs in slim plastic sleeves, then box them up in a couple of small cardboard CD boxes, and store under your bed or better still, in your parent's loft.

Ya think you've got a problem deciding what to keep?

Librarian Recorded 800,000 Hours of News Footage Over 35 Years

By Queen Muse
Saturday, Dec 7, 2013

Philadelphia librarian and social justice advocate Marion Marguerite Stokes spent 35 years of her life recording nearly every minute of every program on every local and national news network on VHS and Beta Max cassette tapes.

Now, her commitment to tracking television news may result in a searchable collection of more than 800,000 uninterrupted hours of historical news footage.

Stokes' son, Michael Metelits says the creation of the enormous collection was a life-dominating and often arduous task for his mother, who died of lung disease in December, 2012. But despite criticism from observers, Stokes maintained that the time she spent operating as many as 20 recorders at a time, swapping out one 6-hour tape after another, would not be in vain.

"I don't think anybody escaped helping her with this process. As you'd imagine a process like this, it just dominates family life and it just kind of structures pretty much everything else that goes on," Metelits said. "But she was really a kind of uncompromising person; she knew what she wanted and this was very important to her."

In an effort to honor his mother's life's work, Metelits has teamed up with non-profit digital archive company The Internet Archive with hopes of converting Stokes' 140,000 video cassette tape collection into a digital, searchable archive that would be made available to the public via the internet.

Director of television archive at the Internet archive Roger Macdonald said Stokes' archive could be a very useful addition to the company's ever-growing digital news collection.

"If we're able to successfully digitize this, it will open up a big window on local and national news, that's unprecedented," Macdonald said. "At the Internet Archive we're working to record and open up U.S. television news for research purposes and we've been recording since late 2000; but the addition of this collection would extend our archive back three decades."

Metelits recovered his mother's video cassette collection after she died. Shortly thereafter, he reached out to the Internet Archive and the process of preserving the tapes began.

Probably in the hereafter.
If there is one.

According to an 82YO pal-o-mine, a firm believer in a sort of spiritual reincarnation, we'll spend time thrusting ideas back to the living, ("Where do YOU think they come from, then?") and finally get reborn.
That might explain why my tastes have changed so much.

I guess the answer to the clutter question is: When you're never going to play them again, or can't get a machine to replay them. Like my videotapes.
Although the pal mentioned above is trying to get to see old films that made an impression on him. Good ones, some as far back as black and white.

Sorry. In a philosophical mood.
