I like CDs so much more than digital buying music.

Great article. For years I've been saying that the gimmick of "100% digital" wouldn't cut it for very long. Humans are too drawn to the tangible. 
Digital is cool, it's compact and easily purchased with instant gratification.... it's also cold, without album info and art that you can hold in your hands, and can be easily lost or corrupted 99% faster than a fire can eradicate a physical collection. Not to mention how easily stolen digital files have been a bane on musicians far and wide.
Most of that is a matter of personal opinion, but I think adding many of those points with the power of nostalgia makes for a total certainty that physical media, in one form or another, will never die.

I think that might be part of the the reason for the revival of vinyl records.  Sure some of it is driven by they hipster mentality of "everything old is new again".  And then there is the nostalgia factor for those in their mid 40s and older.  But I think some of it might be a big "F#@k You" kind of backlash too the "digital only/physical format is dead" idea.  
You can have my CDs/records when you can pry them from my cold dead hands.

Totally agree. As for those "hipsters" into old stuff as the "in" thing ? I'd like to see a fad of these hipsters go head over heels for things like old TV sets that took up half the living room, dial up internet, having ONLY reel-to-reel for listening to music, landlines only with dial phones and no cell phones at all, etc etc... let's see just how HIP these HIPSTERS really are  Razz

No microwave (have to reheat pizza and fried chicken in the oven or just eat it cold).
No DVR, Netflix, Hulu, etc.  Just a good old VCR machine you hope that you programmed correctly.

All that good stuff!

+ a trillion.

If it's an extremely pricey, rare, OOP vinyl, cassette, or disc, and it's more economically feasible,  I will buy the download to save boocoo bucks.

I doubt CDs will truly go away.  I remember there was a brief push for DVD Audio, but I think it was ultimately too much effort to make them worthwhile to consumers.  Now with digital files and streaming, I don't think there is really an impetus to develop a new physical media.

Same here.
However, this also brings up another point FOR physical media. As a physical media collector, the purchase and possession of certain albums bring the high probability that an album will become quite valuable due to circumstances such as a low number of pressings, how rare it becomes over the years, and whether it is signed by the band or not.
A purchased download is worse than a new car in that it doesn't lose a lot of value after you buy it, it loses ALL monetary value... You CANNOT resell it legally, and owning it has the same financial value as owning a jar of air.
I go to swap meets, thrift stores and yard sales often, and I'll see a CD or LP that I know, from my own research, has great value online. As an example, a certain vendor at our swap meet gets thousands of CDs in every week and I flip thru them as often as I can. He obviously does zero research on them as I have purchased for a mere dollar each, original titles like:
Detritus Perpetual Defiance, both early Seventh Angels, Believer Extraction, several 80s black metal and goth metal that I do not care for, and so on. All of which I have sold and made incredible profits on.  So much so that I made a believer out of my wife (who thinks collections are pointless) when I bought 12 CDs for 12 bucks and sold them that same week for a grand total of $92.00  Cool . By comparison, I could have bought those same 12 albums from an online download site for 7.99 to 9.99 each and that same week have nothing physical to show for and no ability to gain from them financially... ever. 

(Not sure how I got off on this, but there ya go  Laughing )

Not unless you managed to capture air that had once been in the lungs of Michael Jackson, Prince or even Princess Diana.
But hang on to them just in case.  Nitrogen and Oxygen rich air might be worth something in 20 years or so.

It's a sickness really. There are like 9 class clowns on this board all competing with each other to see who can get the biggest laugh.

In my mind, I'm always the winner!  lol!
