How much is your time worth?

On minimum wage (say $10) it'd have to take you under 6 minutes each to make it cost-effective.

Minimum wage is $7.25

$2.50 if you are a server/waitress working for tips.

a candy bar costs $1.25

i can spend a morning at a local flea market and sell the shit out of old things while i eat cheese and drink beer. i've made over $100/hr in the past. the only problem is the demographics are wrong for my music.

btw i went to that website, entered the code for 4 random cds, and the total offer was $0. one had no code, another had an incomprehensible code (prolly old), the other two were unwanted.

ha ha, to think i bought so many of these with credit cards, probably paid interest, now they are worth nothing. investment!

Are they making CDrs better quality nowadays? Or will they flake off like the old ones?

And do DVDrs have this flaking off problem?

I once dropped an external hard drive and lost everything.

At the risk of rampant hipsterism, why does playing vinyl lp's offer such a more rewarding experience? The tactile sensation of flipping it over? The participation of blowing off the dust? Bonding experiences.

tactile sensations
The absorption of modulated sound, full wave structure
the analog delight of no lasers

anything that forces the listener to sit and listen, instead of a readily available fast forward or skip button, is cool with me.

so many great songs are tossed off as "filler" by people with no patience and a desire to only hear the hits.

I like the way that LP's sort the music into two "suites", and if a band is thoughtful about it, and many were and are, they create two distinct sides of music, to be enjoyed.

I also like the extra images and stuff on the sleeves.

I have held, and gone to, many "record nights" where friends and I bring a few LP's and we all rock out and get wasted and check out our latest faves and latest buys, and make each other jealous with our choice vinyl platters and rare shit.

I have never heard of anyone having a "CD night" or a "let's share the contents of our iPod" night.

The best I can explain it......not much difference than some choosing fresh brewed over instant coffee.

Nah, I don't blame them.

Like you pointed out we have a single monetary market but it's useless in this case because each country has its own set of bureaucracy and licensing requirements. I know first hand the fucking pain in the ass it is for european startups.

They took the right decision by focusing on bigger markets. Besides, I hear the service will be returning sometime this month, so...

Not getting rid of my Cds at all, got rid of all the burned cdrs, but i have a pretty comprehensive indie and more collection that i would never sell. I still buy a CD or two of music that i really like but never owned when i find it real cheap. But after some time slacking because couldn't afford it, i'm back on the vinyl quest! Making it grow slowly but quality only...
Last additions include Big'N, Bastro and Caesura LPs!

That's true, but if you put some perspective on it and look back 50 years you'll see that it's actually quite an accomplishment.


Anyway, CDs...

Donate them to a local library.
