Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Re: Listening to Vinyl is a bit like eating at a posh restaurant

I listen to music not to hear the music, but to be reminded of all the events surrounding the soundtrack of my life. The way my brain has encoded those engrams doesn't give a monkey's if it's MP3, vinyl, C90 super-chrome, Dolby(tm) compressed, Dolby B, C, SR, HX, AAC, FLAC or The Royal Philharmonic live.

Although it does draw the line at Woolworth's Ferric C90, which barely managed to hold any kind of a signal.

And if you needed any kind of a reminder regarding hipster-wankery-audio-phile-bollocks, yep, Type IV metal cassettes, never >60 minutes (or 85m or 280'), played on a Nakamichi 505 or 1000.
