I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
The only one I could come up with was to pay off my overdue taxes that Officer John Parker (badge number 6144), from the CRA keeps calling here about. Really, I didn't know the Exchequer accepted iTunes gift cards! LOL.
I don't stream music myself, never saw the point of it. You can't save the song you want, or I've never been able to figure it out. Never mind the fact that I don't have unlimited internet, so I have to watch my bandwidth. If I go over, it gets expensive.
I used to sell things on E-Bay, made some decent money at it. However, I stopped because I was badly burned. Never mind that now they take 10% of your sale.
I missed vinyl personally, now a buddy of mine is an audiophile and swears its the best format. My dad has a turntable, and still listens to all of his records from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I can remember going into town with my parents and going to Sam the Record Man and Fred's Records, with my dad.
I did have a Fisher Price record player.
I still remember my dad bought a Sony Walkman in the very early 80's. I think I was in grade one. My mom got so angry with him, because he paid over $200.00 for it.
I grew up with tapes. When I graduated grade four, my graduation present was a Ghetto Blaster (well, that's what it was called!).
The first tape I bought was 'The Lonesome Jubilee", by John Cougar Mellencamp.
A few months ago, I found a stereo with a tape deck at work. They we getting rid of it, and it magically made its way into the trunk of my car. Now I'm able to listen to all of my old tapes, including the mixed ones, I made in my youth.
Presently, I have a SiriusXM radio, but rarely use it. Only when I venture beyond the Montreal area. Hard to find a English language radio station that plays rock. Mostly what I can find is a station playing what I call 50 varieties of Kesha. I can't go pop music. They play the same 20 'songs' over and over again for three weeks. Then they become 'Classic Hits'. That is the special hell of Virgin Radio, which I was forced to listen to by the youngster at work...until the radio mysteriously disappeared. No, I didn't have anything to do with it...I think the Warrant did. My car stereo is locked onto CHOM 97.7, all the best rock from the 70's to the present.
