This post has been deleted a number of times already. In its prior versions, I cried mostly about digitalization and how it facilitates the short-lived shelf lives of today’s music. And how I still prefer buying any format of music before settling on digital, which, aside from what I do on here, I’m almost completely opposed to supporting. But I kind of sounded like a dinosaur dick, so here I am now with this abbreviated version.
Moving on. Now the point of this post is to let those who read our site know how I’m opening a new section — “Recent Purchases.” Doing so will hopefully encourage me to write more about the new music I’m buying and, just as importantly, the music I’m still catching up on. I buy primarily CD’s, but also scoop up a fair share on vinyl. My cassette collection is now at two, thanks to this catastrophe. I’ve marked this bad boy right here as the first of “Recent Purchases” because that post alone cost a few hundred dollars and it’s a good example of what to expect in the future.
The following is most of what I’ve bought so far in 2013…
