you can print the art onto cds, you can print the sleeves on glossy paper and you are pretty much the only remaining human being in the western world who's cd player still won't play a burned cd, sure. you still can't press vinyl.

compared to going all digital, sure, compared to cd's, nope.

also, caldwell's right, a wall of vinyl will get you laid, a wall of cds will get your wrist swole.

And dudes if the chick is already in your room/place, she's going to fuck you either way. A girl saw my stack of HEAVY METAL magazine and still went ahead with it. So let's get real.

Not really! Who the fuck has the ability to print/assemble CD booklets in their home? That shit is awesome, moreso than the disc itself in the digital era.

I might have terabytes upon terabytes of digital media, but it takes up something about the size of a case of beer and gives me more room and, more importantly, umm.... mind space.

I have about 3,500 CD's in one case that is against my wall. It sticks out maybe 6 inches from the wall, about 6 feet long. Doesn't hardly take any room up at all.
Bored, Esq.

I don't own a lot of metal CDs anymore. I got rid of everything I didn't consider a total classic for the ages or something that would always inspire me/emotionally mean something to me. So most of them are old albums.

Outside of those I have a lot of classical stuff and CDs from the entire history of rock...again, only really great stuff that I know I'll always love. I have many different versions of my favorite classical works...for example the Bach cello sonatas. I have many other CDs from other genres of music...some of these are simply collector's items now. But these were all mercilessly gone through and all lesser works taken out...

I sold my entire vinyl and tape collection back in about 1993, I think. I got a lot of money for it but I sometimes regret it. I like vinyl a lot but I wouldn't buy something on vinyl if it was also on CD. Most of the music these days isn't impressive enough for me to even buy it on CD, let alone vinyl. I get a lot of CDs through trades but I sell 99% of them.

I'm not a big fan of the mp3 format for close listening, even at 320. Luckily if I'm on the move I can rip things/play in FLAC now, so that's cool. Even when I'm testing stuff out I try to get it in FLAC or 320. I usually listen to an album for a week or so and then erase it. The stuff that accumulates over time that I really enjoy I buy. I know I'm going to like it for a long time. I usually try to buy stuff directly from the band or musician. I almost never buy stuff from labels or distros or whatever. Besides...I like talking to other musicians.

I keep mp3s of stuff that I simply can't get any other way. I love that mp3s allow me to listen to so much music and check out so much new stuff...but ultimately only about 15% of it is really worth my time, maybe less. I'm not a fan of mp3 sound quality. When I'm not out and about or listening to new stuff in mp3 format I have a CD player by my bed with really nice headphones and that's how I listen to things...or in my reading chair with a glass of whiskey. I really like to sink into things and not be distracted. I listen to a lot of music at night.

For a while there I preferred the portability/convenience of mp3s...but now I feel old and I want to go back to having physical things around me that I love, RE: my library.

I've never paid for mp3s, I never will.

there is literally nothing amazing about printing out a cd booklet and stapling it

5 seconds on google, $.30 each

every goddamned one man bedroom band prints these up. they are without any worth whatsoever. the record industry looooooves cds because they are a nickel's worth of material they can (could) charge $20 for.

I enjoy your album much more on LP because I can sit on my couch and be a part of the atmosphere of the music and look at any artwork in large format and experience the music. If I'm going to listen to music "on the go" I don't want to have to deal with changing discs and skipping cds, I'll listen digitally. Some people like not having to flip discs, but that's really the only advantage I can see to cds, besides the pure mass of moving thing.

Call me crass consumer, call me socially retarded hoarder, but I look forward to those quiet, introspective moments when I can lay on the floor in front of my stereo and select titles at random and just get facefucked by music.
Agreed. I miss having my collection but I still thoroughly enjoy popping in a new album, putting on the headphones and forgetting about everything. I used to do this a lot more, need to fix that.

I'm with Gookstorm. I try to support the things I like without having a bunch of more or less worthless shit. I pretty much only buy movies that I am going to share with other people regularly (the last few were Thee Films [the Burroughs experimental films] and the Jodorowsky box set). Cds are worthless to me.

in short, diamonds are also essentially worthless, or more accurately vastly over-inflated in value since they can be manufactured to be nearly indistinguishable from natural diamonds and can be produced flawlessly. that's actually one of the methods to determine if it is manufactured and, ironically, it's what is most sought after in natural stones. also, natural diamonds are over-mined, but prices are kept high by a combination of artificial scarcity and marketing (two months salary! she's worth it, right fellas?). then there's the wars and exploitation... so basically FUCK DIAMONDS cubic zirconia supremacy.

I've never paid for mp3s, I never will.
Agreed on all these points.
