I’m cutting down on my streaming subscriptions. I want to own my stuff, not rent it. Couple of days ago I bought 10 music CDs. I want to own my favorite music on physical media. So now I have a nice stack of music on the shelf.
I’m sure it’s nice that Spotify has a gazillion songs to choose from. The thing is, I only listen to 5 playlists and a handful of artists. I’m not the kind of person that discovers new music. And if I do come across an artist I like, I look them up on YouTube or Bandcamp.
Some years ago I started to buy music on Bandcamp, so I have a nice collection of music that I really like in mp3 form. I also put those mp3’s on my phone, so I always have them with me.
