    Who remembers when being a music fan meant actually visiting your nearest music retailer and purchasing CD's, Vinyls and cassettes?
    Now don't get me wrong, the MP3 caused a revolution in music but to a point it's also ruined it a bit.
    I remember back in the day when i bought CD's i used to actually know stuff about the band in question thanks to the informative inlay card/cover art thingamy jig.
    These days, everything just gets downloaded on to my MP3 player and i don't know diddly squat jack s**t about anyone anymore.
    I'll be in the car playing tunes and a friend will ask what i'm listening to. My answer is nearly always "I don't know" and it's just dawned on me that there's something wrong with that.
    Does anyone else suffer from this not knowing about stuff syndrome? Or am i just getting Alzheimers?

    You're not alone bud! It's also hard to let go off them. Yes those inlay covers with pictures, infor's and lyrics completed the actual music package. And having those tangible items made you feel closer to the music i guess. Now speaking of cassettes... :)

    cassettes were the best. Gone are the days that your friends would do you a mix tape of their favorite tracks.
    I mean a CD is good but with a mix tape you know that they actually had to pick and record the tracks manually one at a time.
    There just isn't any love in it anymore.

    speaking of love and mixtapes
    those were the ones I remember mixtapes to or from your girlfriend.

    those and the ones that were for specific car rides (or types of car rides)

    plus, there's no hidden signals and fun stuff like that in an mp3. jacket and jewel case art are sorely missed

    I used to draw the cassette covers while recording them...it took a lot of time to make such mixtape.
    Putting together some mp3 is much easier and faster (bug again... just for this it doesn't have the same meaning)

    So, no it's not just you.
    But be aware... this is a sign that we are getting older
    Peace, Domenico

    @mrwolf - I sure am getting older and it's great. It entitles me to moan about things like twitter, smart phones and "towie" to name but a few.

    @12 String: I have an old tascam 8 track... the case is made of wood and it has a remote control, wired of course.
    Sooner or later I need to bring it back to life...

    Wow, museum piece. Look after it man. I remember my 8 track in my cortina. Great sound, better than modern tape.
