ha! I love it! trying to explain my compulsion about vinyl or Newtons
always gets pitiful stares from my friends. and the same tired argument of:
"It's old, how good can it be?" And trying to explain that newer does not
equal better just gets nowhere... but I've made a fool out of myself on
this list before talking about this sort of thing... so I'll quit now.

you are right on with this one!
