They are edible you just have to be extremely careful when processing them. Not worth the hassle for most to bother.

I expect the seeds are to plant a tree.  When you're old, you can reflect back to that time that you were a Katy Perry fan and how it ultimately destroyed your life, and then you can hang yourself from it.

I don't know if it's because of boobs, or what. But Katy Perry just doesn't annoy me like most pop stars do. I'm going with boobs.

I'd like to plant some unwanted seeds in KP if anyone knows what I mean. And I don't think that you do.

So is Katy Perry this generation's Pink Floyd?

Cause my Floyd albums would always end up with seeds in them.

If you haven't heard, The King of All Blacks can't stop listening to Katy Perry's new album.
 
2013-11-06 10:26:53 AM  
Maybe Katy should have just included a live rabbit with every CD instead of seeds?

MayoSlather: I'm sure the three kids over there that still buy CDs are going to be disappointed.


Actually, according to Neilson:

In 2012, 193 million CDs were sold verses 118 million digital albums.

Cd sales are indeed shrinking as a percentage of total albums sold but are still clearly #1

It would be interesting to see those numbers adjusted by type of music, etc. (Classical music likely still rules the CD sales, maybe not so much for Pop.)

Neilson had a pretty good breakdown (linked to it via a huffpo story)....including vinyl, holiday....

I never called anyone an imbecile, nor did I say everyone must embrace it. Eh, it's just an inevitability. It's like when CD's/DVD's replaced Vinyl/VCR tapes.  CD's/DVD's are a more volatile media than say a memory stick or a digital transfer. Good to know you support things.  You're certainly are cooler than the rest of us :).

When one says "the first four Katy Perry albums", does that include all of the Christian music or does one pretend those don't exist?

HA! I'm not cooler than anyone!

My original post was simply to refute the idea that CDs are dead...they're ageing, and will continue a steady decline....but they're not quite ready for the cart, so to speak.

She certainly has a fantastic body. I don't find her face particularly attractive... maybe it's because I know it's caked with plaster and who knows what and under-neath it all is a run-of-the-mill woman. But hey, tits.

I'm guessing they are worried that the international CDs might contain seeds from plants that won't kill on sight?

That would just be an afront to Australian flora.

She does have natural attractiveness. Were I not already married, I certainly would not turn down the opportunity to "you know what" if given.

Except the fact that the vast majority digital downloads these days are inferior lossy encodes.

Therefore they are inferior to the CDs they are supposed to replace. New tech is supposed to be superior (DVDs were vastly superior to VHS for example).

Before you chime in with the excuse "who cares?": anyone with a decent set of ears can hear the difference between lossy downloads and the CD original, even on a low end soundsystem.

THIS.  We should have moved on to SACD or audio DVD or whatever, not down to mp3.

Hey, I wouldn't say "who cares".  I'm an old asshole who can't hear high end frequencies worth shiat (just ask my wife), so a lot of it is a non-issue for me  However, for those who can, this could be fixed by selling memory sticks instead of CD's.  Memory sticks are way less of a volatile than CD's.  As far as digital transfers go, there is nothing stopping anyone from transmitting a higher bit-rate/better quality sound encoding scheme.  CD's are just a medium for holding data who's time is coming to an end just like the (semi) floppy disk was.

fusillade762: peterthx: New tech is supposed to be superior (DVDs were vastly superior to VHS for example).

The fidelity and frequency response, not to mention dynamic range, are still lower in VHS.
Not to mention channel separation and lack of discrete multichannel options. One thing you won't hear on DVD is head-switching noise or any kind of static when here's an imperfection caused by multiple playbacks (VHS tapes degrade and tangle after all, technically a well-cared for DVD could be played indefinitely without loss).

While DVD's Dolby Digital and DTS are lossy, they are still far better (and smarter) encoding schemes than MP3...and there are also some titles out there in lossless 48/16 PCM.
Plus you still need to process the HiFi stereo tracks for surround sound, which degrades the signal further.
