A CD existence

Close-up of a CD
Why are you so shiny?

Isn’t it annoying when you’ve been in the car listening to a number of CDs, and when you quickly change discs you remove the disc and place it into the case of the CD you are about to play, promising that when you get home you’ll sort them out. But you forget.

I’ve just spent ten minutes standing at my CD bookcase pulling out a CD case, opening it, tutting, placing it back and pulling out the next case.

I eventually found the Terrorizer magazine cover disc Fear Candy 25 in a Voivod case.

With Kerrang! TV failing to play anything heavier than Green Day I have to say that Terrorizer’s monthly platter of all things extreme and metal is a welcome addition to my CD collection. Not all of it is my cup of tea — or rather it is, as I don’t drink tea — but I do find a few gems now and then. Besides, it’s good to keep up with what is current in the world of wildly overdriven amplifiers and angry men shouting.
