Music So Bad That...

    ... I simply tossed it in the garbage.

    So today I dropped by my local library branch at which I have scored innumerable deals on used CDs and books. What caught my eye today was a five (5) CD box set of Volumes I-V of Conlon Nancarrow's Studies for Player Piano.

    Who you ask? So did I.

    So I skimmed through the CDs' booklets and was somewhat intrigued. And, I thought, for $5 how could I go wrong?

    Bad assumption!

    First off I missed the word "player" in the album title. We ain't talking Concert Grand sound here folks!

    And secondly, these "original" compositions are... pure dreck, putrid, horrible, non-musical.

    After a few minutes of trying to find even a snippet of one track that had any (and I mean ANY!) listening appeal I gave up.

    My first inclination was to take it back to the library tomorrow and put it into the donation bin. Actually, that's a lie. My first thought was to toss the whole thing in the garbage. THEN I thought donation. But then, no, that made me feel guilty; that they'd just put another $5 sticker on it and another dumbass schmuck would be out a fin and cursing whoever donated this crap (as I have come around to thinking.)

    So for the first time ever that I can recall, I have taken a near-pristine box set of CDs and dumped them in the garbage, where they can never ever disappoint anyone again.
