Spitting in the face of technology

January 18, 2010 - Andrew Potter
As I get older I can see how technology gets harder to keep up with. That’s why I refuse to catch on to the latest techno fads. It’s getting too much too learn and deal with. My cell phone can make calls and can text but that’s about it. On top of that my home Internet is dial-up. Yes, there are still some of us out there. All this spitting in the face of technology is probably why I still listen to records. You can get a full record used for a few dollars. The sound is good enough for me. One drawback is there are no new records being made with current music or they are very rare. But who needs Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson when you have Billy Joel and James Taylor. You know I’ve downloaded music (and paid for it) off the Internet. The feeling isn’t the same as walking out of the store with a record in your hand. If you buy a record, CD, cassette or 8-track you have something tangible in your hands. I like that feeling.
