Music: Current count 20337  rated (+33), 706  unrated (-18).
Seems like a healthy rating mark, but I've been taking it very easy, pulling out old records from the unrated file -- most of which dates from a few bouts of mass closeout buying back in 2002-04. I'm collecting the reviews in the August Recycled Goods column, whose release is delayed to the end of the month. Back in early August, I felt like I didn't have an adequate store of reviews -- the column will be my 100th, an occasion which demands more than the half-dozen items I had stashed away. Up to about 35 now, but they're still awfully scattershot, and I'm not finding many gems among piles I bought for about $1/disc and hadn't bothered to play for almost a decade. I should probably figure out some way to round it off. As it is it feels like I'm ending the series with a classic heat death whimper.
Meanwhile, no Jazz Prospecting. I think I managed six records for the week, including one A-list find, but that will keep. I seemed to be recovering a bit a week ago, but I took a turn for the worse middle of last week. Went back to doctor on Friday. Ran some tests, but still no answers. Meanwhile, fever has returned, and I've been coughing more than ever. I've been out of sorts for more than a month now, Last few days I've been barely conscious. No idea when that will change. Until it does, I'm pretty much putting everything on hold.
I did finally get the unpacking done this today, so I can run that.
Unpacking: Found in the mail last week:
