Music Hoarding: The Art of Content Management

Music Hoarding: The Art of Content Management

I’m a media hoarder nut! I treat my audio and video collections like their literally as important as air and water. Since I was in junior high, i dreamed of a day when I’d have a fully formatted, easily accessible collections that would rival the GODS!!! For as back as i can remember I’ve been constantly pruning my music, movie and tv show collections. Turing to my music collection, 120,000+ songs on my server is HUGE, but the SLOW process of upkeep can be maddening.

As of earlier this year, I think i’ve added all the passed albums i’ve ever owned or wanted to my collection, allow me to stop growing and start fine-tuning. My movie/tv show collection (which similarly started in 1999) was finished earlier this year. Now it’s time to devote my attention to the music. #MediaHoarder #ToddTunes2017

After Almost A Year Delay, I Finally Release My Tenth Studio Project Seasoned Veteran

After Almost A Year Delay, I Finally Release My Tenth Studio Project Seasoned Veteran

After almost a year’s delay, I finally finished and released “Seasoned Veteran” on Bandcamp, I planned on pushing it last December, but I got great opportunities to work with both Aarophat (Black Noise, The Mindz) and Sean-Touré. So I pulled two thirds of my first TRACKLIST to use on those collaborations. Dipping into my sandbox of loops, I built up a lot of tracks to take their place. I’m pretty proud of this. I got to work with some of my favorite artists, as well a some new ones (I see you, Elley Jeeze. Good lookin’ out, Bruh). Seasoned Veteran is a free download. Stream/download below, and I hope you enjoy it. – Big La vs. Todd

#Watching Orphan Black

#Watching Orphan Black

One of my favorite shows from 2013, I got lost during the first part of the second season. So I started watching from the beginning with my wife. Big S/O to Tatiana Maslany for playing the role to the fullest. I should be caught up just in time for the season 2 finale.
