People think that shit has to be brand new or its no good. I want old with character over shiny and new ANY DAY.
Couldnt agree with you more.
The thing that blows me away is that antiques made 50, 100 or more years ago are still in such good order.
most of the stuff you buy today lasts a few years at the most.
I have an old windup grammophone that works as good as the day it was made. The sound is well, a little sketchy, but for something that doesnt require a powerplug, its fantastic.
With todays throw away items, photos that are digital, Information that is stored online, CD backups that last less than 10 years.
All that will remain from us next century is a pile of grey chemical goo.
If the internet dies before then, there will be scarce records of our time past 1950.
Good luck to our future Archeoligists, trying to decipher all that garbage we left behind.
