    In a weird way, I kind of miss buying CDs. Somehow it's more satisfying to spend hard-earned money on a CD than just pull it up for free on YouTube or Last.fm Perhaps, in a way, instant gratification isn't what it's cracked up to be.

    If you're listening to the radio, I think the 90's produced better music. There were some really good alternative bands back in the day when 'alternative' truly was 'alternative.' Now, most of the popular stuff today sounds bland and unoriginal.

    I hardly listen to the radio now. I mostly listen to my CD collection or whatever good I can pull up online.

    Yes, I feel that collecting the physical albums brings me a little "closer" with the band.

    Having grown up with both vinyl and tapes (reel to reel, before we got cassettes), the CD promised to be the ultimate convenient cross between both (since they were smaller and eventually recordable, yet did not have to be wound through to find a particular place, and were not as breakable).
    But it was like as soon as the recordables came out, solid state and internet downloading made them quickly obsolete.

    The media can influence the listening style. If I listen to Pandora, music plays in the background and I am not responsible for curation just vetoing if I don't enjoy something. If I use Spotify, I have to be more intentional and find that I listen to songs over and over and albums from side to side. If I listen to my own library, I feel like I am too cloistered.

    With vinyl, you also get some of this intentional listening plus the added aesthetic pleasure of larger album art and the tendency to listen to entire albums. I enjoy certain albums side to side. With cassettes it was easy to make portable mixes. That is one thing I definitely miss.

    I loved grunge, and miss how it was cool to wear grandpa cardigans. Also I loved op shopping before it was renamed vintage. I have a much treasured pair of doc boots.

    I remember the 90s as an idyllic decade. Yes, there was war and starvation as always, but it seemed to be this naive and optimistic period between the cold war and the war on terror (and everything that goes with it) where everything seemed possible and there was little evil in the world. Things were in bright colors, loud and fun! ESXP paradise! Change for the better was in the air. An endless party.

    I was going to say Miami Vice, but that was 1984-1990. What happened in the nineties?
