I buy vinyl because I like to look at it and collect it. It's not about showing it off

savages fits that description but they still kill it

i just figure post industrial consumerism should collapse before something changes. its the marxist in me, the means of production reflects in art but when the means is buying plastic crap then the art is going to be uninspired too

How is reading physical books cool or attempting to be cool I don't even.

Point was that I understand why people would listen to vinyl because I read physical books

I hope I'll live long enough to witness whatever collapse.
Part of me will feel satisfied when our shit finally blows up.

you said that before and brought up writing letters to fan clubs and pin boards.

it is simply not true - there is no equivalent that existed before web-age. I don't expect you to see that, though. You were already born into all of this.

The equivalent of message boards would be those things.

Equivalent of superficial posing occurred in magazines and on Television and radio.

I never said it was a good idea.

You're also out of your element though.

Not to mention, i never sign off my legal rights to sue them for anything like that happening. Basically, if something bad happens that it didn't say in the documents might happen, you can possibly sue them. They make that very clear when we sign the document that we do not surrender legal rights.

Anyway, i never said collecting records was crazy. I said why i don't.

I don't own dvds, or at least haven't bought any in over a decade. I do own books though. It's the only physical stuff i still buy in terms of art. Eventually i'll probably go all digital with that too. I don't really have a problem with everything turning digital. I think in the long run it's better this way. How could it not be.... all this production of physical shit.

Yes but let's never forget they were raised to be this way. By either our generation or the one before us.

Every generation since the boomers (them included) has been full of themselves. It's only gotten worse.


I still blame the boomers though. Or maybe i should blame their parents....



I blame cavemen. These fuckers didnt know how to raise their kids right.

thing is, you can raise your kid "right" - you can't raise it in a bubble.
I blame each and everyone of us.


my neighbor's daughter threw a tantrum last week I could hear - over two gardens and several walls.

Miss 6-year-old went mental because her mom wanted to get her ready and buckled up in the car, but she wanted to take a selfie with her mom's phone, showing how she got into the car. for her groundschool friends, because "getting into the car" is apparently a thing for little ones.

her mom snapped because she is sick and tired of "give me your phone, I want a picture." if you never let your kid do it, it will be the one everybody else in school picks on.

like the ones without a tv set at home were ridiculed back then when.

we had tv but only one channel until I was like 9 and then we had like 4 channels after that by stealing satellite signals

As a result I never got to watch 80's kids staples like gi joe or transformers or Masters of the universe. I was mad about that as a kid. Later on i realised i missed nothing at all, of course.

man if there's one place i don't have to justify collecting vinyl it is definitely the netphoria music board

everyone has hobbies and/or wastes money on dumb bullshit; who gives an actual fuck? we are literally all going to die one day, some people like to enjoy things.

I have a small (well...50 or so) collection of Fantasy themed figures. Clearly this is a much better use of my money than vinyls....



(To be fair though i shoplifted more than half of them. Stupid shit to risk getting caught for i agree. A guy's gotta have his dumb law breaking hobbies.)

er, well one is a (usually) required image for a possibly substantial work of art and the other is a poster for mostly useless status updates

as for this vinyl thing, I'm actually starting to enter the territory of "having vinyl but not listening to it" on account of I feel like the equipment I'm using just doesn't... cut the difference so to speak. and I'm not going to dish out on stuff just for that right now since my money's going into music production not consumption atm

in other words, expect a possible big malsy ebay "haul off" in the not-so-distant future

true that. I also like to fill my vinyl collection for artists I like, although often there is stuff I'd like just cause it's really rare or has a nice vinyl color, or format. I'm still sorting out two boxes of 80s vinyl from the guy I bought my current record player of, for 20€ it was a rate deal! On the other hand I try not to keep too much. Too much possession is always a burden, first of all, you won't listen to a specific vinyl for a long time, and also it costs a lot of space and is a hassle when you have to move. Right now I'm at a point where I am happy with the amount of records I already have. First I'd like to sell some before buying new ones. Records really dear to me I'll keep, that's for sure.

Plus, have some friends over, they can look through my shit and I can throw something on for them. Much more interactive than "here let me shuffle through my iPod for that one song you wanted to hear". Dollars to donuts I can find and put on a record faster than someone could scroll through their digital warehouse.
