72 – Destroy your McFly collection
I am well known amongst my friends for my excellent taste in music, specialising particularly in late 90′s boybands. My friends pretend to tease me about owning albums by classic bands such as Busted and McFly when I know that really they are just jealous. Michael’s suggestion that I destroy my McFly collection is then, surely, a test of my dedication to the list rather than a dig at my taste in music. Surely.
My friend Adam is a big fan of McFly and Busted too (he’ll tell you he hates them but it’s just a front) so I was quite suprised that he suggested we attempt this particular list thing on our day of many list things. Maybe he is just a sadist.
Anyway, it turns out that I’d passed on my McFly CDs (see, I know people that will gladly take them off my hands, I’m not the only one!) so we turned to their musical predecessors, Busted. After getting over my ‘hate to just trash it when I could pass it on or give it to charity’ middle-class eco-guilt we turned to the task of destroying the CD which turned out to be harder than we thought. We’d expected shards of CD flying across the room as I gingerly stamped on it but in the end it took some serious bending and jumping on it to bend it in half then sheer brute strength to rip the disc in half. The case was much more flimsy and even I could rip the liner notes into pieces. You can see the fruits of our labour above.
Another list thing done. Woop woop
