I don't have much cash. So I can't by CDs often. But lots of my friend s had MDs, so I thought 'Why not buy one yourself?' So I saved up my money and bought one. And it was good. I recorded all the music I wanted, but hadn't been able to buy. It was good, at first. Lots to listen to. But then they got boring. so I recorded new music. But that quickly got boring too. Now all my favourite music is boring. Even the stuff I have heard only half a dozen times. why? Because MDs devalue music. If you buy a CD, you listen to it for ages. You paid, you earnt it. Other people's CDs aren't the same when you record them. They are not as precious. Thus everything I once like, I now don't. I am boycotting all music ever now in the hope I'll be able to reappretiate my lost music.

Not sure I understand your point.

You're saying "music piracy is bad"? In which case, you're right, up to a point.

You're saying "minidiscs are bad"? Nah, mate.

no, im saying that with all this musci i had been anticipating buying, that was now readily available, it ruined the build up to the purchace, as i could get all i wanted. i now have to buy cds, as my friends dont share my musical taste, and i like music again.

What about trading md's? I know of some people who exchange their md's with ppl on the other side of the world (or in the next state, whatever...smiley - smiley) - it's a great way to get some new music and it *is* more special (well, kinda...)

I totally agree about pop and rap (and heavy metal smiley - yuk)...but what on earth is MOR?!

I *think* I've fixed my MD...if it behaves this week I won't have to spend lots of money repairing it! smiley - wow

Is that what you call Middle of the Road these days? I would have thought some of radio 2 and such like was more mor, but there again I have not been a regular radio listener for years. When I did listen Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Frankie Laine where middle of the road.

Back to the point, minidiscs have revitalised my interest in music as I have downloaded my cd's lp's and 45's to my computer and transfered them all to 1 gigabyte minidiscs using Sonys' atrac system.
