And the arguing continues.....
I’m 58 and still out here exploring new stuff …I still listen to my old favorites don’t get me wrong ….but geez you are closed minded on purpose??????Hate is too strong. I avoid bad influences and have no emotional connection.
You can post links to new music if you can show something.
Here’s something new !!!Have fun with the new.
New stuff like violent drill rap is the hot stuff that I can ignore. Luckily I missed Nickelback’s butt/stripper rock. (I just learned about it on DFO.)
I’m having my fun with older stuff. Some DFOers are happily stuck in the jazz music time bubble. Endless old material for me to enjoy over the radio.
I have to remind myself that some music requires more than a few listens , I have CDs that I didn’t like at 1st that now I love a lot .
I’ve had an explosion of all of the sudden discovering I really like some of the older artists a lot more than when I was younger .I’ve had the Van Morrison catalog for … a while.
It took me until maybe a few years ago to really appreciate the Hymns to the Silence CD.
Never really connected with it.
I was out of the country and it popped up in rotation.
It landed in me.
Finally got it.
I love some of those songs now.
Several CDs have gone through this in my library … Collective Soul had several.
I have to remind myself to keep listening.
I find that most music I want to listen to a second time, I don’t need to listen to again after the 3rd or 4th time. On the other hand, the music I like best is music that I have to listen to many times before I begin to understand it and really dig it. YMMV!My criteria is usually does it have a good melody and do I want to listen to it again after the first listen. Pretty simple.
The icing on the cake is the protection of the environment by not having to purchase hardware like CDs, vinyl, cassettes, and be wearing out things with moving parts like turntables and cassette and CD players.
You underestimate the proliferation of enviro pollution from computers, and the resources to obatin rare metals that are in them.
I go through a new computer or phone about every 7 years to stay 'current'.
In contrast, my CD player, turntable, cassette player, amps etc from the late 70's to the 90s are still going strong.
I already posted my route to a solution, several pages ago. Sorry you didn't read it.OK. Do you don’t like the idea. Some of us are trying to be helpful.
Publicity for the events would be on TikTok or something similar. If you don’t want to have an open discussion then I won’t offer suggestions to you.
