I must admit I don't blindly buy cd's, films, tv series etc any longer. I used to spend most of what money I had on Music and tv series box sets etc. With the tv side its more because with all the extra channels you find there is no need to buy the series box sets because CSI, Star Trek etc is repeated day in day out on most of the channels so you end up seeing the same episode 5 times a year anyway.

Music wise I have to admit very little gets me excited these days. I generally listen to albums on the internet think hmm only 3 songs on there I like not interested. If I choose to buy anything its more likely to be a chart artist like say Kelly Clarkson as I can pick that up in Asda with my shopping for £7/8 quid (sometimes less). If I want a rock cd I have to go on the internet and look for it, then pay £10-15 for it plus postage and with most artists its unlikely I will ever get to see them live so that lessens the appeal of the cd too.

I think everything (including music) is much more disposable now and has a shorter shelf life. Especially for kids these days most of their interest in music is exploited by linking to Tv/film rather than genuine artists. Hearing workmates talk about what music their kids like its all High School Musical, Hanna Montana etc so its stuff that's here today gone tomorrow.

Russ I never buy newspapers or magazines now and I am guessing a lot of people no longer bother. I read the news on google and can read up on anything else that interests me on the internet. At one time I would be buying music magazines, Sci Fi mags, rock mags, girls mags and the occasional newspaper but I see no need to bother now thanks to the internet.

My money now all goes on my 2 dogs and with a 3rd on the way I guess I will be buying even less cd's lol.



Passion is the source of our finest moments,
The joy of love, the clarity of hatred and the ecstasy of grief.
