I have spent far too much time today looking for an album and it has felt much like a wild goose chase, but perhaps even sillier.
All I know is a description of the album cover and a vague idea of what the album may sound like, but beyond that there’s nothing. I’m not going to say more than that as it’s not exactly a safe album cover, but suffice to say what was described to me has me interested in seeing it due to how contemptible it may appear.
Anyway, this search has been going on since last night and it has consumed a fair bit of time and I don’t know as to why I’ve dedicated so much time to it, but I have and now I’m here and I need to cram a whole lot into very little, and that’s my own fault really. Such is life and all that.
It has been consuming and I have been obsessed and I’ve let it take over my life for this short period of time. Now I wonder if I will be sinking more time into it later. I don’t know if I will, but I cannot discount the possibility. I cannot ignore the chance that I will allow obsession come over me once more and consume more hours and perhaps that is not a good thing. However, there is always a silver lining; well, maybe not always, but in this instance there is and so I will now get into that silver lining.
Throughout this whole search I’ve come across artists I’ve not listened to and now they are on one of the many lists of things to check out that I have, and that’s a good thing, I think. I think it’s good as it means more possibilities to branch out and hear more stuff. It hopefully means gaining a better understanding of how music can work for some people. I might get an insight into their processes of creation.
Also just the experience of hearing new music is a good one, I think. Even if I hear stuff and I don’t like it, I still get to experience it and all the above stuff.
So it’s not all bad. It is frustrating and tedious but the search is also rewarding. Even if I don’t find out what the album I’m looking for is called this whole search has been quite successful and so… yeah; no losses here.
That’s a great thing about music; it’s so easy to find these days. Sure, there’s a lot of wading you need to do, but you still discover things. It’s easier to understand why you might not like something or not find it good, and the reverse is true. It’s easier to become knowledgeable in certain genres and styles and that’s a good thing.
That all said, some of the things I’ve seen during my search, I’m quite happy to have not seen, but sometimes the good comes with bad.
The time it took to write five-hundred words: 07:56:55
Once more I slowed down and once more I feel that it was beneficial to the writing.
Still not good writing but I get things across with better clarity.
