My original feeling was he has these cds lying around unused, so why not
try to put them to good use in the spirit of some sort of ecological,
down-home country spirit of frugality in this throw-away age of consumer

I don't use them any longer myself. They seem to be on their way out the
door as a medium (my sympathies to T.S.). I never liked that sound of a
reaction engine starting up anyway.

People do hang the shiny things from their fruit trees to scare off
avian fruit lovers, so maybe all is not lost. I think the barbarous term
for that is 'repurposing.' 

Though the ecological political correctness of such a maneuver might be
subject to caution.
