Classic Status re: All Good ThingsStarted 9 years ago by YoYoPo / toggle topic info
Anyone watch that old Nickelodeon game show "Double Dare" back in the late 80's? Where they had that huge obstacle course, and there was one part where they had to find a red flag in some big old sandbox filled with foam or slime or whipped cream or oatmeal or something? (Weird Al's film "UHF" had a scene like that about "finding the marble in the oatmeal" too... hilarious.)
Well, the "flag" is the classic record, the "sandbox" is where you're getting your music from, and the "oatmeal" is the pool of sh*tty releases.
Back in the early 90's, it was your standard search: a few "red flag" classics, the sandbox was your local Tower Records or mom & pop record store or whatever, and the oatmeal was up to your knees, so you could sorta slog through it without too much trouble.
Now in 2010, there may be just as many classics out there in the oatmeal, but the sh*t's up to your neck, and the sandbox is cyberspace.
Good. F*ckin'. Luck. Even Marc Summers wouldn't host THAT one.
... I'd rather peep my clip of Thes on Price is Right, honestly... now THAT'S a classic.
haha...like the mark summers reference.
legends of the hidden temple was that sh!t though!
damn though man - it's like, there is the opportunity through the internet to hear all types of crazy new music and experience sounds you would never have been exposed to otherwise. And yet, the type of music I listen to seems to fall within an ever-shrinking radius. Now why is that?
if it wasnt for the internet (or specifically you tube) then The P would have been jst another review in a magazine....
i love the internet, and i love you tube, but i can sometimes get a bit oversaturated with new music, and just enjoy a respected well known artist.
dont really know what else i can contribute to the conversation so ima leave it there, think its all been said.

An album review of Question in the Form of an Answer in URB magazine got me off my ass to Virgin Megastore to find this album. Different times.
I remember random people passing my dorm room would hear me playing "Suite For Creeper" and come in to listen because the bass was banging out my stereo system. Plus the story was dope.

Oh for sure, the best thing about the internet is being able to discover sh!t you would never find otherwise. It's not the same as digging the old fashioned way, but if you live in the middle of Devon, that ain't easy to do. I can spend hours looking for sh!t on line or just checking sh!t out on YouTube.
Having said that, I have never downloaded a song. I wouldn't even know where to do it. If I find something I like online, I'll get it on vinyl or CD.
whatever the form (casette, vinyl, CD whatever) u cant beat a physical copy of something, reading thru the books, checkin the artwork, feels like im actually getting something for my money, also, if u legally download itsnot that much cheaper anyways, so jus wait a few days till its delivered.
