I've noticed badge of honour music collectors going from saying they own "5k or 10k lps or cds" to owning "50k or 150k tracks".

I am EXTREMELY happy cd is becoming landfill, I should be able to buy skiploads of discs for a song.

Attention deficit is on the rise.

It’s a disturbing thing that people can’t invest their time into hearing an artist more than just a few minutes at a time.

Just forever lightly sampling a disconnected and constant variety instead of putting yourself over to experiencing periods of depth is not a good thing over time and attention spans just become shorter and shorter as we lose our concentration... oh look a squirrel... la la la la la...

Well Tao, there are some artists where a few minutes is really all that's needed.

Totally agreed - very sad state of affairs.

Bill, some people change gear quicker than they change tracks.

How many new albums did we at WBF each buy this year?

me, 325 - however I seem to be in the minority with most spending their $$ on equipment at WBF.

be careful what we complain about and wish for.
