I guess my point was there are youtube nerds who never buy anything, vinyl or digital. they surf from home in place of digging in IRL (not that there's anything wrong with that...)I think the issue of youtube nerds vs crate diggers is a false divide really. People who were the latter have now become the former as record shops have dried up and the net has taken over.
I’m still in awe of people who travel for tunes though. It is a different kind of knowledge but the real heads who knew all about the culture were never the collectors really. If you want stories you want to talk to the dancers and people who shifted speaker boxes or whatever.
There are guys like that also on discogs. People compiling a gazillion lists of genres and whatnot. It's unlikely those guys actually own that amount of physical recordings.one difference from the early dissensus years: with youtube and streaming services, you don't need to collect the physical objects to be a deep record nerd. "record collectors" have their one world of crate digging, going to record fairs, dealing records, etc. now, we can be outside that entire world and compete on the same level of knowledge while in the comfort of home.
my role on the board to post very boring answers. not like you flashy, big-brain types who compete to see who can ejaculate the biggest tidal wave of half-baked highfalutin balderdash. slow and steady wins the race.That's a very boring answer Leo and the boring answer is always the wrong one!
He posted this just now. It's a share from someone almost literally called "gammon".There was a guy called himself Slim Jenkins, he was cool but now on faceback he's had a kind of lurch to the right and he shares these tired alt-right pictures and calls people snowflakes.
Hi Simon!What happened to Paul meme/grievous angel? Does he still post on here?
He was my favourite from back in the day. He was like yr really cool uncle
