Hey Mastodon! What's the last CD you bought? (not album or music, I mean actual CD)
@robotsneedhugs Something I'm embarrassed to mention from... 2004?
@robotsneedhugs I'll only buy a digital download if it's CD quality or better (even if I can't really tell).
One of my favorite Belgian bands signed with Sony, so I got their new CD, Jungle Eyes.
@kai Same! Plus buying old CDs second-hand is almost always cheaper than buying them digitally anyway.
@kai Yeah, 80-90% of my music comes from Bandcamp, and I wish I could pay extra more often.
Never heard of Magnatune before - I'll check it out!
I don't listen to internet radio but sometimes I feel like I should. Other times I feel like I should stick to my own music. I have a lot of it, and as a result, plenty of it doesn't get the attention it deserves. :(
@robotsneedhugs internet radio is a great way to discover new music if you don't have any friends, or if your friends have bad taste 😅
@robotsneedhugs Moonfall - Empty Cage
It's a small band from New York. The pre-order package I got was $18, shipping costs were $22.
Someone, please, stop me from using my money irresponsibly.
Only it isn't an option for me, because I have trouble concentrating with music on. (Except, for some reason, when the clock tower is playing songs. It always does this while I'm making an exam and I only notice after like, 10 mins maybe??? idk)
@Jellal @robotsneedhugs last night I heard a great band from Phoenix. There were maybe 30 people at the show, probably 10 from other bands. So 20 people x $5/person means that your band made $100 for the night. What does that get you? Gas to the next gig and a meal, maybe? That's why I go out of my way to pay extra for recordings.
I also think it's romantic to put the CD in.
I remember making up a play with my cousin when we were younger (heh) where one of the characters would don white gloves before placing a CD in the tray.
