Why I Love Vinyl Records Posted by 2000 Man Mar 272014 http://youtu.be/c_LasOjYP_M This guy gets it! Do you? I mean, think about it. Deep down, you know this guy’s not wrong, don’t you? 16 Responses to “Why I Love Vinyl Records” Tony Tea says: 03/27/2014 at 6:16 pm Timony? Come on. I suppose it is short for Antimony. 0 High Five Tony Tea says: 03/27/2014 at 6:19 pm I have the same sort of record shelves. Ikea. They are perfect for stacking records, which is fortunate, since I have not played one of my records in at least 5 years. 0 High Five jungleland2 says: 03/27/2014 at 8:56 pm His beard makes me want to punch him but his opinions on vinyl? Spot on. I fear I am turning into this guy at some level. I have no joy in buying cds and downloads anymore. I’m a vinyl snob now (sigh) It all happened so fast. In november 2013 I dug outthe vinyl and picked up a turntable for the first time since about 1995. I instantly transformed into this guy. 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 03/27/2014 at 9:45 pm I have those, too. I like them a lot. Which record haven’t you played in five years? 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 03/27/2014 at 9:48 pm I know what you mean. I especially like the line about how my listening to vinyl is what makes me better than you because you don’t listen to vinyl. But I don’t want to know a DJ. I knew a DJ and he sat around listening to music other people liked. I like music too much to do that. 0 High Five funoka says: 03/28/2014 at 10:03 am Good for you guys — the little vinyl that I do have is in storage. I have very little because some asshole stole my ENTIRE record collection in 1984 after a college party — while I was passed out on a couch. So I just started with over CDs . . . I will say that Neil’s Pono thing has me a little geeked up: http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2014/03/19/291130878/neil-young-wants-you-to-truly-hear-music 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 03/28/2014 at 11:03 am I want to like Pono, but I think it’s kind of unnecessary. My mp3 player plays lossless files, and most people use their phones to listen to their music these days. I don’t think it’s gonna make it. 0 High Five funoka says: 03/28/2014 at 12:03 pm You’re probably right — but I have SACDs and DVDAudio, and freaking Sony mini discs around the house too. I love to waste money, I guess. 0 High Five misterioso says: 03/28/2014 at 12:36 pm Thanks, that was pretty funny! 1 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 03/28/2014 at 2:49 pm All I have to say is: any dude who claims that Thin Lizzy’s “Black Rose” changed his life is okay in my book. 1 High Five al says: 03/28/2014 at 4:53 pm Like Timony, I imagine many people on this list would describe their music tastes as eclectic. I would. I just really wish there was another, better word for it. 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 03/28/2014 at 4:59 pm THAT was a vinyl collection? Pretty sparse (like his beard) in my book… 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 03/28/2014 at 5:47 pm Wow, you guys have a lotta records, then. Those Expedits hold 75 or so per square, but he’s packed a little loose though (did I just say that?). He has more than I have, but did you ever notice when you look at someone else’ records they always have a whole shitload you’d have never bought? 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 03/28/2014 at 5:47 pm I don’t. I usually explain my musical tastes as noisy. 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 03/28/2014 at 9:27 pm We don’t have much vinyl anymore (until I rescue more from my parents’ home), but our cds outnumber his vinyl. I’ve had friends who have walls-full of vinyl, but they worked in the record business or industry. 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 03/29/2014 at 11:01 am OK, I didn’t see any cd’s in his collection, which doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any. Mine are in a completely different place (places, actually). Records have their own room. If he doesn’t have any cd’s, then I’m a bigger hoarder then he is! 0 High Five Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
