and here we see the difference between a music fan
and romantic fanatic
, who is compromising rational thought to instead, try to maintain some kind of credible value in a vinyl collection which is effectively obsolete.
sorry homeboy, but harping on about the virtues of vinyl records over MP3, is like big upping the pathe cinema of the 1930s over three dimensional audio, hi-def, wide screen, home cinemas.
both were good for only as long as something better hadn't come along. well several improvements have materialised and so..... oops.... you got shelves of shite.
you talk of texture and depth
as if the composers of the works you have on hardened petroleum product, wanted their labours masked and obscured under layers of hiss and crackles. do you consider Thomas Dolby to be a heathen? clean your stylus and keep out of direct sunlight! (oh van gogh also sucked balls! i'm a botticelli man!)
you give in to my mental tho, when you discuss convenience
and lugging a turntable down the slopes. you could have the most bonkers collection of choons in existance, but what use is it, if you cannae listen to it? none at all.
and whilst you have a reasonable point about the relevence of album art back in the day of 12 inch monsters.... you can now download MP3s with MP4 video clips.... which give dynamism and movement.... colours and broader range of texture and depth
, but also velocity and emotion!
nice try buddy; but no sale!
come join us... it is a whole new millenium!
