Hi carriers.

    In fact, I really love and respect all kinds of media of musical and not only information, which does not completely cancel the fact that they definitely stopped playing some of the roles that played the day before yesterday.

    I can’t restore what the first audio cassette I bought was, but still lives in the boombox and occasionally plays Fugees “The Score”. The first CD I bought was Alanis Morisette's "Jagged Little Pill". I remember the last one, the Children’s Panadoll "AM". This album was once on my tape, but I just could not get past the disc. Moreover, at the time of purchase, there was some confidence that it was from this disc that I would play these songs in clubs. As it turned out, carrying a box of discs with you is inconvenient, and you don’t want to shove it into the pockets of this thing, in which the discs are worn, because I will naturally not see the box after that. So I play songs in clubs from time to time, but mostly from copies, and not from the original disc. The very first vinyl in my hands was obviously not bought by me, where did the six-year-old have money for vinyl at all, but those records with Beatles and Alice in Wonderland were played at home quite often. The first vinyl purchased was Snow “12 Inches Of Snow”. This is the same record on which the same Informer, which in 2007 turned into Chori, Chori. The latest vinyl to date is the Pendulum Streamline. Moreover, vinyl, unlike other formats, will definitely be bought from time to time further.

    Due to the fact that at one time I bought music a lot and often, I quickly realized that, in addition to cases with all kinds of rarities that would never appear in the city in more than one place, it was not necessary to pay the retail price. Pretty quickly, almost all Minsk wholesale warehouses were found, which, fortunately, almost all were hiding in the basements a couple of blocks from my university. And in a wholesale warehouse it is not at all necessary to buy something in bulk quantities. Therefore, the cassettes cost so much ridiculous money that you could buy an album just to listen to it once, to make an impression and not to return to it again. Well, the drive was also collected far from one hundred.

    Then it came to the release of his music. Well, if not quite mine, then the music of friends and acquaintances. Given that the country's market size is not so large, even almost pop projects were released on CDR, not to mention pirated releases. Somewhere on the second groan of discs sold, it became more than clear that a small share of deductions to the musician in the price of the carrier was more than deserved. It is still possible to predict the efforts to record your music, the efforts to design, print, cut and package the discs themselves are generally insignificant, but the task is to ensure that the disc with the music and the person who wants to buy this music are in the same a place at one time is already something from the field of higher mathematics and rocket science. In store A, drive B can wait a few months for a buyer, In the store. The same disk will be bought 15 minutes after it appeared there. Outside the country, more than 7 disks cannot be sent in one package. There are practically no methods for receiving money from buyers beyond those same limits. Mail is never in a hurry. Sometimes it even seems that it would be faster to sail to the very same Canada on a raft. Got $ 3 from a neighboring country - if you please spend a week in tax. When sending within the country, cash on delivery is possible, but fill out the form only by hand. It takes at least 20 minutes to fill out one form so that everything is correct and error free. Well and so on. Sometimes it even seems that it would be faster to sail to the very same Canada on a raft. Got $ 3 from a neighboring country - if you please spend a week in tax.

    So when the music stores began to gradually abandon the actual music discs, I was almost happy. And I can’t wait until the disks die out completely and in the nearest countries they will nevertheless put electronic payment systems and content distribution for money on their feet.

    Yes, discs and vinyl will not die at all. Only they will not remain as a way to bring this music to every home. It will take quite a few years, and each disc will be a collector's edition. He will be insanely beautiful and it will be indescribably pleasant to hold in his hands. Only after acquaintances of collectors who bought every rare release that I ended up in this city with my own efforts put last.fm on themselves, I was surprised to find that they didn’t at all listen to music from their collection.

    I'm sorry, I'm interested in music. And to listen to this music. And not at all beautiful piles of plastic in beautiful packages dusting with someone on the shelves.
