  1. I don't know, Irish.
    She'd get more distracting the quieter she got.

    Whitehall, NY

  2. Hahaha! That second one is so right on.

  3. OH God yeah. You have to be there to know it.

  4. Hey Irish;

    The music back then was better, and yes #2 was spot on, LOL

  5. Actually, vinyl is technically superior to digital. The music CD records frequencies between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. That is the typical range of human hearing before you go to too many rock concerts. However, under the Nyquist sampling theorem, a digital recording has to go to at least twice the maximum frequency, which would be 40kHz. The emphasis is on at least. In reality, a CD recording probably should go to 120 kHz, which would make the disc the size of the old laser video discs you might have seen.

    So basically, you are missing data on the CD. However, the CD is easier to manufacture without defects, and digital processing allows for all sorts of error correction and noise clean up. You can get an excellent CD of Caruso's original recordings which were on wax cylinders.

    Also, greedy record companies turned a very large number of faulty vinyl records. My personal experience back in the day was that 1/3 of my discs had serious defects. Usually these were the result of plastic recycling of unsold discs in which the paper label was not fully removed.

    As to the quality of the music, that is a proven fact. Some researchers scanned thousands of lyrics and melodies for the 50's to recent recordings. They showed that the modern melodies are greatly simplified in dynamic range, tempos and musical structure. Similarly, the range of topics of the lyrics, the vocabulary, etc were also greatly simplified. Hence we have rap/hip hop but not R&B. The entire black race has lost its musical ability and is now as incompetent musically as they are in everything else, except running and jumping.

    1. If I can't hear it, I can't smoke it.

      I just wanted to write that. :)

  6. That first is dead on. And the second ... I can think of two reasons.
