Oh good, it'll just fix itself.

You could possibly make the argument that we should turn the servers off, produce only what we need in terms of physical mediums and live a cleaner existence that way in the very long run, but it would seem unlikely and non-sensical
Then you agree that it was pretty silly of you to introduce that as a point against cassettes.

Applying just a bit of logic, you might realise that the servers where music and movies can be stored is also an important backbone piece of infrastructure that also enables pretty much the Internet and all the services that exist there.

Can the same be said for tape decks?

The transportation and polymer industries that you pinned on cassettes both have wide reaching uses, yes.

the point.
Yeah that's not what his point was about though.

In any case:
There are different sounds to every medium, but for most people (including me) it's definitely mostly about the aesthetic. There's nothing wrong with that. For me it lies in childhood memories because my grandpa and my mom used to play me lps when I was a kid. And also the reason I started buying records is that some things aren't available in digital form, or if they are, not for free. And if I'm gonna pay for music I want the fun physical object. But yeah, the snobbishness that some people feel about it is nonsense

Alright, I'll concede. Please then, if you can, what is the point you're trying to make?

Edit:

I'll clarify my own; we can pollute less by not producing physical mediums (besides servers/data storage) for distributing media like books, movies and music.

Started a 2nd Snapchat group!

Had a fight last week and someone in the first group(that is 7 years deep now), said "Create a new group then!"


So I did....

All new people!



Have a nice day musicbanters!

Well, he can say, but it seems to me that it was exactly what his point was about. He seemed to be responding to the statement about the “inconvenience of the physical medium and the maintenance required.” Yeah, why go to all of that physical inconvenience when you can just switch over to an online source to get what you want to see or hear.

My main contention was that this seems more like a bad faith way to justify not liking vinyl or tapes than an environmental concern. Maybe jwb introduced that though, bad faith discourse is his jam.
