Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

I often finding sampling music doesn't always work like I want it to. I remember back in the day when record stores had listening stations and I would listen to records there to get a feel for whether I would like an album enough to buy. Because money was tighter back then for me somewhat. There wer...

Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

Stream?! Are you kidding? Not hardly. I only stream at night when I'm listening to music to try to go to sleep and even then I don't do it very often. I usually just play whatever's on my Hi-Res DAP. I listen to all my music on vinyl and CD for the most part (95% to be exact). I have no care for str...

Re: Isn't it time for message boards to make a comeback?

I'm game. I miss the music conversations. The only other message board I frequent is a 4K UHD/Blu-ray board and I don't think they know much about music. Much less good music. I'm glad I found this thread. Payday is coming on Friday and I am thinking of buying new music, but I cannot decide between ...

Re: Life updates

I don't think you are that much older than me. I'm in my late 40's. It is a long and very terribly difficult road. My buying habits have dropped drastically with regards to music. I still buy music, but not as often as I used to. Having depression makes it hard. I still buy because it's how I cope w...

Re: Life updates

I am getting professional help, but I'm so fucked up that it's not cutting it completely. It helps, but this shit is rough. Glad to see your doing well. Reading your post gave me some ideas on ways to spice the website. Here's what I come up with: - The website should do should a monthly or so write...

Life updates

After seeing Jake's email this morning I decided to start being more active on the boards and I thought I start with a life update/explanation. The reason I have been inactive on message boards is due to life circumstances. 10 years ago my significant other killed themselves and that sent me into a ...

Re: GloNo Recs That Still Get Heavy Rotation

The album that I find I keep coming back to the last couple years is R.E.M's Green. More specifically the 25th anniversary vinyl reissue. I pop that one on more and more often. It's like a warm comfortable blanket that helps me through the hard times (see new thread). It really has been a source of ...
