    I had several records growing up. Played them on this huge hifi in my room.

    I still have a few dozen LPs even though my turntable died many years ago. A few Christmases ago I decided to try to replace it via eBay. It was hard to believe the number of people competing for those things.

    These were big when I was in high school:

    I could never stand how they'd break a song between tracks. You'd be listening to say, "Fungle in the Jungle," and there'd be this 30 second pause in the middle while the deck loaded the next track.

    Did you listen to your records after walking home from school, barefoot in the snow, uphill, both ways. ;)

    Home!

    We were lucky to have a home!
    We used to live in a cardboard box, in the middle of road....

    Some years ago, I bought an expensive gold CD of an album I liked and decided to compare it with the import vinyl. So I synced a song and switched back and forth between the two and found that the vinyl had a richer texture to its sound. A matter of taste, most likely, and possibly also a matter of the quality of the CD. In the end, convenience seems to trump quality. mp3 at 160 is good enough for me most of the time.

    And a cardboard box would have been luxury to us. We lived in a hollow log teetering on the edge of a cliff. I only have one brother left.
