I want my 80s/90s analog stuff back, they aren't making stuff anymore the way they used to, and things will probably keep changing to the point of losing it's recognition. Why can't analog and digital co-exist? I think digital/streaming can sometimes be dark and depressing, and less of an experience. I'm not a complete digital-hater, but I think things are heading down a bad direction. I feel like I'm on a lonely planet because nobody can buy or appreciate things anymore.

Are you referring to audio? There are entire forums devoted to audiophiles who love their analog equipment. It's not a lonely planet and they do coexist; do some Googling (I have one in mind that I can link, but the owner is a prick so I don't want to; just Google). Did you know that vinyl records became a billion dollar industry last year, for the first time in over 30 years? Lots of people out there feel as you do.

Personally, I am not one of them. Ever since I heard my first CD in 1985, I have embraced digital sound. I like its portability too; I hated lugging crates of records around. Being able to carry an immense audio library in my pocket was the stuff of dreams when I was a teenager. However, I acknowledge that I used to like physical product too; I spent many an hour poring over the album covers of records back in the day.

At any rate, there is new equipment and new albums for the audiophile, or you can go the expensive route of vintage equipment and original pressings. But analog is a world unto itself; you can immerse yourself in it if you want to, as well as have a lot of people to discuss it with.

I'm waiting for the actors to actually act, and not let CGI do the acting for them...

why are they even being paid that much if the computer fills in the acting skills?

Thumbs up *

Hehe I love you guys so much!!!!!!

I am a dire digital hater..... THE WORST THING TO EVER HAPPEN TO AUDIO AND VIDEO!!


I used to LOVE the 1980s but now I realise JUST HOW DESTRUCTIVE THEY WERE!! (Early 80s video games are probably the only GOOD thing to come out of the 80s)

My or my, you have an interesting take on life: first you want to go back to the 50s where you can get a job with no education or training and now you want to go back to the 80s and 90s. You skipped the 60, & 70s.

Open reel is what should make a comeback.

Why, open reel? I can still see vinyl and cassette, though.
