    How many CDs do you have? I stopped buying CDs awhile ago. I guess I’d rather have the CDs but finding CDs I want to buy in a store can be difficult and I don’t like to wait for them to ship from somewhere. So, I wind up downloading stuff from iTunes and eMusic. The nice thing about eMusic is that once you have downloaded a track, you’re entitled to download it again as many times as you want, so there’s no need to obsessively backup your MP3 collection. Maybe iTunes/RIAA could learn a lesson here.

    […] At any rate, the pros for an mp3 player outweigh the cons. It’d be great to have all your music in one portable place. I can have acces to all my music at my home, or the office, or the car (or my bike, but I’d be a little fearful of that). As Colin has touted, emusic seems to be a great service. And I just learned that you always have access to songs that you purchase via their website. So, you don’t have to worry about archiving your music. […]

    I probably have on the order of 500 these days, maybe more. I like CDs. I like albums.

    I keep buying CDs, at least in part, because it’s both better and easier to play CDs over the air at the radio station than mp3s.

    From your days in the Boston area, can you recommend any CD stores other than Newbury Comics? Any in Cambridge?

    I bought most of my CDs in Boston at Newbury Comics, those two used CD stores on Newbury St and at shows. I like Newbury Comics a lot. For the size of their stores they have a really good selection and usually decent prices.

    […] green spark. Hence, the shocked face. Unfortunately, Google is not that smart (yet). Adrian wrote a post about never ripping this album to mp3s. I never ended up finding a decent, high res image of […]
