Sorry for the lack of updating, I've been meaning too but it's just, when I got no school and work at wierd times on different days it's different change keeping a schedule remembering, usually I do it before I head to bed on school nights or after I wake up (usually after I wake up only if I forget) but yeah, let's try this again, hah, I've had maybe, 3 days off so far this spring break, so its been pretty busy with work, not used to it. Usually during school weeks I get very little hours, it's nice though. ANYWAYS, question time!

Question #390: Do you buy your music in physical form, download it (e.g. iTunes), or just listen to it online (ex. YouTube, Spotify)?

I love having a collection, so I buy all my music, I love supporting the bands as well, I even have a limited edition CD that's signed by the YouTuber DaveDays, his first CD, can't get it anymore, so yeah, that's pretty cool haha. Also, if you read this, little side question, what bands do you listen to I suppose? Personally, right now I'm trying to finish my collection of Green Day CD's, DaveDays, Beatles, All-American Rejects, just recently finished Three Days Grace, and started collecting Blink-182 CD's.

WOO, okay, that should be enough text to make up for the whole missed time, I honestly don't know how many days I've missed, that's how weird Spring Break is for me.

I usually just listen to it on YouTube. If I really love it and want to support the band/singer I buy it on iTunes. I don't buy CD's anymore.

I used to buy CDs all the time, but now that i've got my netbook with no CD drive and two apple devices, I've actually bought quite a bit from iTunes. I've also used CDbaby (i think that's what it's called) to pick up the Bit.Trip soundtracks back when they were first released. As for online listening, Spotify requires a monthly fee (i think it's free if you registered before a certain point, but i missed that cutoff date so it keeps asking me for money lol), so I tend to stick with Pandora and Mixcloud.

I use to buy CDs when I was younger but its been awhile since I have bought an actually CD. I think the reason for that is cause I just dont like most of today's music and all the CDs I want I have already, unless a new Metallica one comes out than yeah I will buy it. As for digital music I feel as much for digital musics as I do digital games. Nowadays when I want to listen to music I use either Pandora or my CD collection which I have stored on my computer so I dont have to swap out discs.

As for what bands I listen well Metallica is my main but I also like Megadeth, Guns N Roses, Linkin Park, Nickelback, Beatles. Mainly 70's to mid 90's Rock and 80's to mid 90's metal.

I prefer buying CDs, I like having a big physical music collection, but since signing up for Spotify Premium I've had no urge.

Nobody buys CDs anymore. No one wants to pay $15 plus tax for an album just so they can listen to one hit single. Everyone is much happier paying $1 for each song they actually want. 13 years ago some people were claiming if consumers started paying less for music it would destroy the industry. Well here we are over a decade later and the music industry is still alive and kicking.

Now people are claiming low priced digital games will destroy the gaming industry. I don't believe that for a second.

@Gamesake Well, actually, music sales aren't quite as prosperous with the advent of digital distribution, and CDs still take the lead in sales but don't sell nearly as much.

Here's the catch, if you wanna buy an album from a slightly lesser-known artist (say, not quite major label), stay away from stores and go directly to the label website. Buy from there.

Here's a plea from Benn Jordan (The Flashbulb). It's old but still relevant. http://www.alphabasic.com/Please_read.html

I buy CD's still, but difference is I usually spend $15 for all the songs and not just 1.

^What albums are you listening to that have no filler songs? Some crazy quality control there to be honest unless you're waiting years in between. Even my favorite album of all time (Electric Ladyland) has at least one filler track.

I don't buy much music (I've never bought a song that didn't come from Linkin Park it Fort Minor) but If I just want one or two songs I use iTunes. I buy a CD if LP releasing an album that's clean since I can transfer the music from the cd to all of devices and I like my physical Stuff. So CD mostly if its an album that won't be too hard to get as a CD. Otherwise I just buy from iTunes.

I prefer cds, just picked up Kacey Musgraves and Justin Timberlake's new releases today. The only time I buy digital is when amazon has those crazy awesome mp3 sales.
