regarding cd storage:
I put all my cds in caselogic dbl sided "Prosleeves"(tm) -available for like 100 bucks per 500 sleeves or maybe 150 for 1000. An ex-girlfriend turned me onto them and they save soooo much space (like 1/6th the space or less even), you can put the cd in the front pocket and the "j-card" and booklet in the back pocket. I've ordered them online quite a few times and caselogic.com is really good about customer service and exchanges for the "right" product.
I keep these little sandwiches in a couple of wooden wines crates (you can usually get them for free at liquor stores) in rows of three (probably about 400 cds to a box). I set them up vertically, put shelves in them, bolted them back to back and put rollers on the bottom so I can roll the unit around my hardwood floors and spin it in place. Everything is alphabetized a-z with all the comps at the end (I couldn't bear to put them under "various" like some sort of ocd choad).
7"s also stored in wine crates, single row, comps and splits at ends. LPs are stored in a custom-built, unfinished, 5 cube tall tower built by Big Fish Furniture of Chicago (nice, affordable stuff, 63rd st?). For really cheap adjustable record shelving, some friends of mine use the "GORM storage system" from Ikea:
Which would make you a complete fag.
My friend seth swears you should always file splits by the better band, easy for Charles Bronson 7"s, but what about the Short Hate Temper/Slight Slappers 12"?
