extreme oldschool

Vinyl? CD? Cassette? Clay tablet? The analog-vs-digital debate rages on.

Boy, I'll tell you what, I sure do miss the analog warmth of the clay tablet.

Remember how distinctly not-plastic cave carvings were? What a drag! If you wanted to correct a mistake, you had to switch caves completely. Try getting a modern family to do that. "Hey, put down the Gameboy for long enough to walk to another cave, Johnny! Your dad messed up the parable of the deer hunt again." Fucking right! And marble... everyone makes a big fuss over the beauty. Don't get me started on that marble noise-- screw up a marble carving you have to go mine a fresh ribbon of marble, make a slab, buff it...
