Back when the universe meant something we used to listen to music by pushing a piece of plastic into a machine. Now-a-days music comes out of thin air. Back then it was embedded onto a hunk of plastic called a compact disc.
After experimenting with putting sounds on miles of tape wound around a little spool we realized we could listen to whatever we wanted to, in the order we wanted. The day of the ‘mixed tape’ lead to what we called ‘burning a disc’.
After the success of this CD, (ok, a couple people said it was fun…) I went on to make more and more every year. I started handing them out to everyone I could think of. It became similar to one of those famous Bob Dylan bootlegs – everyone had to have one. Do you have one? Let me know if you still have one…maybe in a drawer in your desk.
