@jamie@social.helios.red @basil With the advent of streaming and music libraries, I've lost this OCD trait but back in the days of vinyl LP's, I always used to listen to an album in its entirety.

Side 1 followed by side 2. Of course, it was a pain with a needle on a record player to select a favourite track but I continued to do this when CD's first came out.

Young lad at work has a huge array of self curated playlists on Spotify.

He saw me using Spotify and was aghast that I had none.

I told him that an album is a playlist that the artist has made for you, and they are the experts. Blew his mind. 😆

All in jest, of course, but I used to have a hangup about getting through the full record.


@basil @jamie@social.helios.red Have you ever been on one of those horrendous, cliched HR team building exercises and ended up being categorised as a 'Starter-Finisher' ?

Or rather the diametrical opposite of a 'Starter-Finisher' :-)

@andyc @jamie oh god. My last job, that I stayed in only 7 months, they would put us through some nonsense like that every 2 weeks.

From the king of bullshit, the Myers-Briggs, down to every bit of sillyness ever dreamt up by anyone that ever wanted to sell a book.

It was never ending.

Was the main factor in me looking for other work.

@basil @jamie@social.helios.red I presume 'Myers-Briggs' isn't a set of edicts for the workplace promoted by Mike Meyers from Wayne's World.
