I'm particular about my notebooks. I always have been - it's just my tastes that have changed. In middle and high school I curated Mead composition books of stuff. They had to be wide-ruled, silver-sharpied, and made by Mead; no knockoffs were allowed. In them went my first attempts at songs that I would compose at night in Garageband and sloppily bounce for an auto-tuned demo the next morning.
