Count me out please.

Frankly I was glad to see the back of it. When I first started working part time as a kid in the late 80s CD's cost double , sometimes almost triple what it cost to buy the same album on vinyl , so naturally with my minimal part time schoolboy wages buying CDs wasn't an option. I could have bought cassettes but they got lost & chewed up easily so vinyl I was forced with for a few years. They were big , bulky , impractical and sounded like shit after a few months of being exposed to a teenaged me.
As far as I was concerned getting my first CD player (In 1991) couldn't come quick enough and when I did all my vinyl was quickly shut away in my parents shed where it remained for the next 16 years untouched before being thrown away. That's just how much I missed it.
Music should be heard and quite honestly i'd take CDs or MP3s over vinyl anyday. I don't buy this argument that somehow buying a vinyl copy makes it more authentic. I want music in a format where I can listen to it with ease whenever I please , I don't buy it to make it look pretty sitting on a shelf.
It's been said that vinyl has a superior sound quality than a CD. Well , I've been having my eardrums assaulted by Motorhead since the age of 5 , it makes absolutley no difference to me whatsoever.
Vinyl - Nice to look at , but for me totally useless and outdated.
yikesss... you may know due to some posts I've made that I've recently received a vintage technics record player and some pretty nice technics floors speakers and I love it. I got a huge box of classics at a garage sale and have been picking up random records at little record shops. It's fun to collect, they don't JUST sit there and look pretty - and sitting down to listen to a record is an event... not like plugging in my iPod etc, etc. I also love shopping for vinyl... crossing your fingers to find that rare album, that weird find that you love... bargaining - appraising the quality of the record. It's a hobby. Vinyl is beautiful.

Yeah this is true, maybe because it requires more effort. I'm from a time without vinyl so the idea of changing the side is a lot for a lazy bastard like me!

I total agree on Tenacious D, these 2 are your typical fat creepy guys in theyre 30’s that are still waiting for their band to ‘take off’ the kind that hang out at your local record shop and Guitar Center, they have the sense of humor and lyrically skill of a 3rd grader and listen to "Target" Metal bands like AC/DC Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath.............that's pretty much them. I get what they’re trying to do but they just fail and come off as tools. Also their movies are about as funny as a serial rapist.

Yes, those are the characters they play. I mean, you realize that's the joke, right?

Frank Zappa was funny. Jack Black is a nuisance.
