The 2nd Law by Muse
[2nd listen]

As I just realised, I listened to this once when it came out six years ago... and then never again! (Aside from two tracks that I listened to a lot.) Until today, when I listened to the whole thing again. It's mostly okay, with a couple of great tracks (Supremacy, Panic Station).

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

This week: a BD-to-BD upgrade that changes nothing on the stats, two DVD-to-BD "upgrades" that don't replace my DVD copies, and a trilogy box set that doesn't replace the copy of the first film I already own. Plus: a 47-disc 173-episode complete series box set. And I'm supposed to be thinking about slimming down my collection...

Number of titles in collection: 2,145 [up 5]
Of which DVDs: 1,154 [up 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 991 [up 4]

Number of discs in collection: 5,508 [up 61]
Number of films: 2,394 [up 6]
Number of TV episodes: 8,293 [up 188]
Number of short films: 624 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
