My Fallible System Is Bluesbreaking My Mind, But The Real Culprit Is My Terrible Memory

Do you ever drive yourself crazy? Well, I drive myself crazy a lot.

I was jonesing for some John Mayall & The Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton (as you do). You know, the Beano album. I needed that guitar sound in my ears (as you do). 

But I checked my MP3 folder, and I didn’t have it. Huh. So, I checked my .txt list and I didn’t have it, which was odd to me. I was sure I did have it here. So, knowing I wanted an actual copy, I ordered it from Mike’s old store for $5.99, because that’s a bloody great deal. I also played it, intermittently, on YouTube while I waited for it to arrive.

It arrived. I ripped it to MP3 for the collection, then I stuck the CD in the player and heard those sweet, sweet sounds again, and my craving was fully sated.

Then I went to put the CD in the shelves… and there sat a copy of the album already. 


One good thing about my going through everything here, I suppose, is that I can update my list, in real time, as I go. But it’ll be years (at my current rate) before I get to ‘M,’ so all this experience does is point out that my system is fallible. Whenever it arrived here, I didn’t add it to my .txt list, and I didn’t rip it to MP3. 

I also never got off my ass and checked the shelves for the disc, despite being sure I had it. As you’d imagine a person would do.


I guess now I have a copy for the house and a copy for the car, so that’s a win!
