Topic: Have Any Of My Chordie Friends Given Up CD's?
In favor of streaming, I mean?
Well, I have not. Every now and then I'll buy a cd/dvd on Amazon and I'll get a free upload, but I never set out to buy an album in streaming format, nor do I buy just a single that way.
Heck, I don't know! :-) Especially since I went from vinyl, to 8-Track, to Cassette, to CD and now they want me to go back to vinyl. I mean, isn't it ironic that ol' "Opie" willingly and gladly jumped from format to format with both feet, but now all of a sudden he's "balking" at going to streaming, and he'll have to be dragged by both feet back to vinyl????
What say you, my brethren and sistren? Are you too "On the horns of a dilemma"? Do you feel like you're beating your head against a dead horse?
Are you really buying into this "I'm a purist and I love to hear those pops, scratches and skips! I also like paying a thousand bucks for a cartridge and needle! Why, my cartridge is sooo sensitive a tiny speck of dust on its counter weight will gouge a deep extra groove into my High Def BINAURAL copy of "Dark Side Of The Moon"! I would rather not tell you the price of my electronics, but I did put a third mortgage on the house and the wife and kids are now living with her folks.
See that sign on my living room door? It says, "Please remove your shoes before entering and make sure you are wearing properly grounded cashmere socks. A shower is required, followed by an infrared light "bath" and the donning of your germ free coveralls with hood. Also I'm offering $100.00 to anyone willing not to come anywhere within a 5 mile radius of our house and ..... "The Precious"
Don't worry. That was just a bit of satire. I really haven't lost what's left of my mind. But I am willing to bet that some of you know someone like this.
