If you asshats had supported SACD maybe we would have had a good audio format.  Hell, even 6 channel mp3s would be a step up.  Anything at all that shows the people making things that we care would be nice.

Locally someone is putting on a show for this. Three bands on stage, every one of them a cover band.

They do have an original band playing in the lobby.

I only listen to wax cylinders.

Yeah, except that you have to stand in line for an hour just to get into the store.  :/

I will not be standing in line tomorrow, but I will go back on Monday to casually browse in a relaxed fashion. Also, as someone who is involved with small labels, try to buy stuff tomorrow from independent labels. The major labels have started to push the little people out to make room for their releases. If you are a small time label owner, trying to get a record pressed in March or April is becoming increasingly frustrating because the pressing plants are giving priority to the major labels which is kind of the opposite of why record store day was started.

Is modern vinyl made from digital recording then converted to analog for the record, or is it recorded in analog? If is not recorded in analog, then it is not a true record in the historical sense.

I liked Record Store Day before it became too mainstream.

I need a decent turntable.

And now we have Cassette Store Day in the fall. This is nothing but a bunch of pony-tailed forty year-olds trying make a buck.

Tomorrow is National Record Store Day and August 14 is National Vinyl Record Day......when will the madness stop?

I only buy quadraphonic vinyl.  And only on National Record Store Day. And only during leap years.

Would you buy Quadrophenia in quadraphonic vinyl?  OnNational Record Store Day?  During a leap year?

There's a 98 and 3/4 percent chance guaranteed.

Recently, I got mildly irritated by an 11-year-old castmate who was playing a boring, repetitive tune on the piano, so I told her that her record was stuck in a groove.

Then I realised she had no idea what a record was.

I read that as Class mate.

Dude, how long have you been stuck in the 2nd grade?

Laser-"stylus" analog vinyl turntables FTW! No further needle degradation of the groove, and the laser reads from deeper into the groove than any needle stylus would ever have touched, for absolutely pristine sound even on old, worn LPs and 45s.

Expensive, though.

Why can't we support our local record stores by buying a CD? Are you suggesting they get a bigger profit on vinyl? Your guilt trip isn't working, sorry.

That said, my local Bull Moose in Bangor ME is great. A huge selection of CDs, Dvds, Blu Rays, books, accessories. And vinyl too, I'm guessing. I never go in that area of the store.

Bonus---friendly (but not overly) employees.

Vinyl is all about people....it not about sitting all alone in your room downloading mp3 files - Record stores are a social media outlet where you can interact with different music tastes.

Fark vinyl, nothing beats the warmth of post-WWII shellac, and I only listen to my 78s
using electricity created by Solar Power on Monster Cable photovoltaic cells, for even more warmth.
WARMTH

Why would I want a format that degrades every time I play it?  Vinyl and tapes both suffer from wear.  Digital formats do not.  Digital is superior in every way.  The standard response is, "digital doesn't have the warmth of vinyl."  That's called hiss and pop, you moron.  It's not a desirable feature.

actually mp3's are really compressed. Even wav files sound better than an mp3 so records give you the highs and lows that digital doesn't, at least as far as mp3s. But don't let me mess with your feelings of superiority.

I wasn't referring to mp3s.  I meant CDs.  My fault since i didn't make that clear in my post.  HOWEVER, most people won't really notice the quality loss from compression.  I include myself since I've had some hearing loss over the years.

I've got several large boxes of vinyl from the 60's in the trunk of the car-- on their way to goodwill.  Hubby demanded it-- says we have everything we need on CD.
