I think this thread can only be answered by the fact that I have tons of DATs, DVDs, ADATs, and even reels of old bands that I had something to do with. You lose, I win. Fuck ovv. Thread locked.

Actually no, I don't remember the future or other universes. In this universe up until at least now, the analogy was totally awesome because CZ is totally nature's CDR, the thing that's easy to make and delivers the goods but is deemed worthless because snobby fucktards deem it "not scarce enough".

I'm slowly pouring everything I have into my Ipod. I'm sick of dozens of jewel cases flying though my car, getting crushed. Side note: I just got an fm transmitter, so I have a slight hiss in the background with every track I play. It sounds so analogue!

yes, exactly

diamond:CD::cubic zirconia:CD-R

in other words, there is no intrinsic value in something that can be reproduced so easily except to frothing music nerds who insist that there is something functionally and aesthetically different between the two bits of plastic

and look, i'll just go ahead and break this down since this board is incapable of understanding irony: "owning music" is for nerds. end of story. CD's, LP's, cassettes, whatever, they are all bullshit collectibles at this point, no different than a band shirt or beer coozie. they are completely unnecessary as media. i was mocking the smegma's and noah's (not them specifically, they just came to mind first) for acting like true music fans, the one's who actually really really care about the music because they spend a ton of money on little bits of plastic and then justify it with "butbutbut liner notes maaaaaan". it's all pretty fucking dumb, but i do it too, so whatever. i like records because if i am going to buy the collectible merchandise, i'd like it to be the super-coolest most hipsterest merchandise i can get

naw man. i think a lot of people here are pretty cool and very knowledgeable about music, even people that i think have otherwise annoying online personas. but when discussions like these pop up, online or elsewhere, people can't help but sound like assholes no matter what their argument is. i've watched cool dudes turn into blabbering vaginas in the blink of a Yacopsae song.

Well Justin I'm fine with laughter, but you recognize that he's prioritizing a format over content? Plus the fact that he doesn't make a convincing argument once in this thread? Something to think about.......

I have plenty of cds, mp3s, records, and a few tapes. I think I have an 8-track sitting in a trunk somewhere. Who cares either way?

i don't consider myself part of what i call "the myspace generation" (born in the late 80's, early 90's) so yes, i definitely have a good bit of physical music. i haven't counted lately, but it's 500-600 cds and 1 vinyl, haha. the thought of giving up all that artwork, lyrics, messages from the bands, superior sound quality, and neat packaging, makes me sick. if you're not listening to tool's 10,000 days while looking at their 3-D artwork through the built in glasses, and if you're not listening to POS's never better while re-arranging the transparent and opaque paper and plastic slips to create your own personal cover art, then in my opinion, we're not listening to the same album.

yet, i am buying more and more mp3 downloads, mostly when they're super cheap, because i completely understand the benefits of them. amazon has plenty of different mp3 albums for just $5, different ones every month. that allows me to get some new music - stuff i may never have gotten around to buying on cd - while still supporting the artist. and stealing music? completely out of the question.

I have a pretty good amount of physical music I think. Around 700 to maybe 800 cds, maybe 50 or so vinyl, and maybe 20 tapes. I also have a lot of mp3s, I won't lie. I've never paid for an mp3 though (lol WAREZ). If I currently had more money I'd be buying physical copies to replace my mp3s, but sadly I'm poor...

bandcamp purchaes go 100% to artists today

so for all you spotify PARASITES, time to pay up

also worth revisiting the decade-old question - who has gone 100% digital (no physical music) ?

edit: my war with DEADWALRUS starts on page 2 and just keeps going :lol:

probably have about 50 lps and a little book of cds and thats it. i sold off my collection a few times when i was poor and every now and then will buy something. i primarily use google play music which has almost everything i want to listen to so that works out pretty good. you can even cache your music and listen to it offline for times im camping or something and cant get service. rules pretty good

I probably have about 500-600 CDs.. 100 tapes and a small amount of vinyl. I rarely buy new shit. Most anything new I get from trades/give aways when doing a release with a micro label. Last time I bought any music was probably when Hastings went out of business. I bought about ten CDs from Pooptastic Paulo but that was a few years ago now.
