There is so much great music being made every day that I don’t have time to discover and listen to it. Unfortunately, we won’t hear any of it on the radio. Certainly, music CDs will be obsolete ten years from now.
There’s some decent new music on youtube
11. The United States
I promise this nation won’t survive another Obama term. The deck is stacked against us.
Liberalism: to be replaced by fasciastic socialism.

Who searches by swiping? Enter a search term and search a thousand pages in a second. I’ve been a lover of books (the physical objects) all my life, but in recent years have totally gone over to ebooks. Virtually all the classics (and many non-classics) are available in electronic form for free.
Though not as good for books that have large diagrams, for reading most kinds of texts ebook readers are much better. They are light, easy to hold, and you can adjust the text size and font to suit you. I consider the ebook reader one of the greatest inventions of the last half century.
Boy ain’t that the truth!! Oh. Except for this fairly recent song..... :)
I’m trying to downsize my place and am taking bags of books to the library for their book sale. I refuse to buy any more hard copy books. DVD’s are another story.
Wow. That is really satanic. Paul tells Christians to speak to each other in spiritual song, and I’ve noticed that many times when God is speaking in the Old Testament it is in verse. Can’t wait to hear the music!
Which may be why music today is so awful. It is a reflection of the soul. I listen to country and classical, and sing in the morning. No more classic hymns on the radio anymore. Today’s kids won’t know the words to Amazing Grace.
Watches; most people just use their cells.”
Not only watches but alarm clocks. Although I have about 30 stored in a bag in my jewelry box and haven’t worn one for at least 10 years, my youngest grandson and all his friends wear them. Might be because this group of parents has decided that kids don’t need cell phones.
You forgot those fat yellow telephone books. Who is going to “let your fingers do the walking” when you can go online and pull the info up in an instant?
However books, real books, will be around as long as humanity exists. What if a catastrophe (pick one) destroyed our electric technology and wiped out all of our stored databases? Written words on paper will still be there to teach and enlighten humankind. And enlightened humans will continue to write them, even if they have to go back to clay tablets and sticks.
I will keep my land-line as long as possible.
I HATE cell phones!! They are little more than toys. The service is spotty, no matter who the carrier or where you are.
Books may be around but more as a few high dollar premium items than as “by the bushel”. Anything read once and done with will be rental model. Only real keepers will be purchased, at costs reflecting collectability over simple content delivery.
I have 26 bookcases. Any books I get now over electronic versions are either because they’re dirt cheap or special. Mundane reading, well, this iPad has several hundred books taking up no space and little total cost.
I quit listening to "popular music" radio decades ago. The crap that they present has none of the melody nor any of the innovation that one heard on radio in the 1950s and 1960s. All the current "artists" (particularly the female ones) sound alike.
and when the power goes out?
And you keep having to buy them, because they’re fragile. You forget and leave them in your jeans when you do laundry. They get stolen. If you get caught in the rain with one, it dies. You accidentally drop it in the sink or toilet. Or you accidentally drop it on a hard surface, and it shatters. I hate cell phones too. But pay phones are also becoming extinct, because it’s assumed that everybody’s got a cell phone.
My wife’s phone book collection will still be here when they excavate this lost and dead civilization.
She has kept every phone book from the last 35 years because there, “might be a number in there she needs”. Yup, from the last 6 places we have lived, got ‘em all.
Why? I ain’t got a single clue.
Catalogs are about as bad. Sounds like a form of hoarding.
80% of this list...yes. Music...never. It ain’t going anywhere. It will constantly evolve. Always has, always will. The commerce and trade of music is another story.
