After posting this I got to thinking about the old "why don't you listen to any current music" conversation that I've had a thousand times, either with my kids, younger friends, or older friends who desperately struggle to stay and hip and relevant to their kids or much younger friends who only hand around with them because they can buy them beer. If someone asked me who my favorite contemporary bands are, Art Brut is one I'd mention. Looking at their albums in iTunes, though, their last one came out five years ago while Bang Bang Rock & Roll came out a whole ten years ago! In other words, my older daughters weren't old enough to really grasp what popular music even was when it came out and to them it's essentially an oldie."Emily Kane" by Art Brut
So this was once you? :grin:Back in college we'd hang out in record stores regularly and get into discussions with the workers about who we liked, who they liked, etc. I was actually introduced to some favorites that way. I tried that recently but that's apparently not part of the business model anymore. When they weren't restocking or cashing people out, all the workers would do is stare at their phones. It struck me as a pretty sad state of affairs.
At least once a week. The funny thing is, the guy behind the counter at our favorite shop had been there since about '77. He's still there, although he's succumbed to the smartphone addiction as well.So this was once you? :grin:
And if you don't know, this is from the movie High Fidelity. One of my personal favorites.
