Did they film the apartment scenes of High Fidelity at your place?


:lol:

It's not that bad - but there is one entire wall of my bedroom dedicated to CDs and vinyl...


Just wait until the floor collapses. If you thought it was expensive to replace a door....


I'm more worried about an earthquake :shock:

Downloads are where it's at.

I haven't listened to a CD in about 4 years.

CDs for me. I'm all about the artwork and the liner notes, and I like having that physical copy somewhere. What if I bought all my music from iTunes and my hard drive crashed? I could be out hundreds of bucks. When my apartment was robbed and I lost some CDs, insurance paid to replace them. I even came out ahead because I found most of them used for less than the replacement amount they gave me.

Singles downloads are changing the way lots of people listen to music. I mean, it's one thing to listen to an entire album from the first song to the last and a completely other thing just to listen to the songs as singles.

IMO, often a song is a big part of an album. It belongs with the rest of the songs on that album.

That doesn't mean I don't listen to songs unless I listen to the entire album. Just saying that downloading changes the way we listen to music.


I agree 100%

Why is one way to listen to music considered right and another wrong?

It's not, it's all about personal preference.

Well, I have a 17,000 song library, all of which has been rated.

I have a series of complex smart playlists that cycles through my collection and plays songs based on how high the rating is, how recently it has been played and how new the song is.

My entire music collection has become a radio station that only plays songs that I love and cycles through them in the exact manner in which I have chosen.

Let me see someone do that with a CD or record player.

As for physical vs. download... I do buy quite a bit of both... but ultimately, downloading is usually so much cheaper and convenient that I find myself caring less and less about having an actual disc.

In that case, I prefer both. Sometimes, if its someone I like a lot or if its a brand new album I generally buy the cd. Sometimes I just want individual songs and such.

I do a lot of both. Sometimes its just too easy to click download on iTunes and that outweighs any desire I have to drive to Best Buy.

Also a lot of times those places dont have what I'm looking for and you can always find a song by downloading.

If it's just one song I like of an artist, I but the individual song on itunes and then put it on a disc.

Typically though if I like a few of the songs, I don't buy 2-3 songs, I just get the cd. I had a really bad experience with my computer that last 2 years. I've had to get a hard-drive replaced as well as all my software, so I definitely need to have something physical in my hands so that I can back up everything I have on my computer.

Physical media is going to be a thing of the past before long, it's just a matter of time...

A generation from now, kids are going to be like, "CDs? What are those?".

I prefer digital, btw.

I think there will always be a need for physical storage devices for music. Now whether that means CD's sold in stores or mini flash drive albums the size of the new ipod shuffle available only online is debatable but there will always be media players in cars, by themselves, etc, and there will need to be someTHING to play music of your choice on said device.

If it's a band or artist I really like, I'll always buy the physical media. I used to have a ridiculous amount of vinyl (including some very rare Bowie), too, but sadly had to sell most all of it during less-than-prosoperous times. :cry:

For other bands/artists, I'm more about downloading their stuff. I just don't have the room for anything more than what I have right now.

As I said, I like the full CD in most cases. I did, however, load up on 1 hit wonders/KSHE classics from Napster when it was free. Go find JF Murphy and Salt's "The Last Illusion" on I Tunes.
