Which do you prefer vinyl cassette, CD or iPod? I have been through all phases of ways to listen to music and I'm beginning to have a preference and it is not what you think. Of course I'm of the generation of vinyl records and I have a ton of them, 45's and 33-1/3's. I have since replaced a lot of them with cassette, then CD. We have a record player but it just doesn't play right now and that is sad. 45's I have a lot because I used to work in a 5&dime, Ben Franklin and I got a discount so my collection grew along with the albums. Albums are awesome because of the artwork that appeared on them. I think artwork on CD's is just not that great anymore, (my opinion). Anyway, back to music. I have amassed hundreds of CD's over the years (Amazon.com and I are great friends...One Click) and have put most of them into my computer and then my iPod. I used to love to shuffle my CD's in my travel case for the car when I drove a good 30 minutes to work but now I drive 7 minutes. I miss deciding what to listen to from that hands on shuffle. The iPod thing is pretty cool but really I'm having a hard time trying to find what I want to listen too. You may cock your head at your computer right now as you read my words knowing how much music I have on my iPod, over 7,000 songs but that is the issue. Too many. Too many words to look at, to scroll through. I like grabbing a CD and that was it for awhile. I know I could probably use the cover flow view but I just don't like it much. Part of my problem is that I just can't look at the screen and see what I want without looking for my reading glasses because I just can't see anything but a blur on the screen. I miss my albums, I love my CD's and I'm going to have to get used to using the iPod more efficiently. Which do you prefer?
My new fav artist right now are -
Mumford and Sons
Lady Antebellum (yeah I know it's country and that is just not my bag)
Classical anything (to paint and draw to)
