He's at the beach. Get him some bermuda shorts and a visor for crying out loud.

That's an English beach. He needs GoreTex outerwear with Thinsulate and a stocking cap, more likely.

Not having to change pants is a major reason why men abandon society.

I bump into the bloke who owns this quite a lot, he refuses to move on from tapes, no matter what you say, he's convinced tapes are better than MP3s.

I'm taken a back by the digital interface. I assume it's for the radio.


I can't imagine a single instance where a tape would be the gold standard for soundquality.

I cringe at the sheer inconvenience of tapes.

Plus, you're forgetting, audiophiles generally tend to be to most irritating, patronising, and pompous pricks you have ever had the misfortune of meeting.

that too, especially since an MP3 player would probably be about 1/4 of the size/weight. I imagine even a crappy MP3 player probably holds more than 90 minutes of music too.

Don't be so sure.

Walkman cassette tapes are nowhere in the same league as analogue master tapes, though.

It hate the way young folks look at you like your a fossil if you use the terms "on tape" or "record" in reference to mp3's. Such as, "I have that song on tape." or "I have that record." But then again I love throwing it back at them when they use terms such as "track" or album" without realizing where the terms come from.

well, "on tape" and "on record" are references to a specific format. "Album", despite what some try to claim, isn't that specific.

That's an absolute statement. There is no context. Thus my reply.

Learn to look at posting times, audiophile.

My "As you should know" comment was in response to Drizzlies comment immediately above your response - which posted while I was writing my comment.

However, what he said seems appropriate, even with your intervening post.

what? You mean to tell me that Rokkr and Simon would pretend to be pedantic and (incorrectly) read too much into someone's comments for the sake of appearing to be knowledgeable? No way!

Album to me recalls images of LP sleeves and photograph collections. It's a physical book-like protector of the contents within. Even a CD just doesn't seem to me to be an album much less a collection of mp3's. I understand though that it can mean any collection of media physical or otherwise but it just doesn't seem right.

"On record" is a term I think should still be used as it refers to something being saved for posterity. Think about how reporters still use the term to mean that facts have retained as in, "We have all of his statements on record."

For the worst musical pedant on the board, you sure do like to point fingers a lot.

As far as the picture goes, you still made an absolute statement about tapes and seem not to get what your statement meant, in context and out. Maybe you should take some English classes and quit listening to music for a while.
