Scratching/popping noises when listening to music. I was listening to Classic Vinyl channel on XM and sometimes between songs they have the noise that is the sound the needle made when you put in on the LP.  My kids were in the car and asked "what's that noise"? 

 

I used to walk over a mile to school.  In Kindergarten.

 

We had four or five channels on the TV.  Cartoons were only on in the afternoons and on Saturday morning.

My 11 year old listens to Led Zep, Sabbath, classic rap(my play list dominates the car but she loves it) TMninja turtles(which is still being made..new cartoons) and we have spent all summer watching most all my Blu Rays..From Pulp Fiction and all QT movies to Memento, Evil Dead triliogy, Blair Witch Project, menace to Society, Juice and a lot of other typically inapproiate movies for an 11year old.

I censor a few obvious scenes as they come as we watch together so I am there to explain any graphic parts or things she is confused by.

Now she still watches nick and disney and likes awful pop music but she is peppered with music and movie history which makes her awesome!!

If you want your kids to know about this stuff, show them. We still have a vcr, and you can get vhs at nearly any thrift shop. My 12 yr old gets a kick out of watching them. Also thinks its great that she can get 5-10 vhs for a buck.

Kids these days don't think twice about pirating software, music, movies, or anything else they can download.

 

I don't think that's just limited to kids haha.

 

Granted, I do somewhat miss only being able to get music by actually buying the CD, because you'd have to do a little research to make sure you're making the right purchase rather than just downloading it and then deleting it with no charge if you don't like it.

There was something cool about getting a CD before you could download.  Since you couldn't get a ton of them, it sort of meant more.  But I don't feel bad for the music industry.  They overcharged for years and years for CDs and it finally caught up with them.  15-20$ on some new cds, you kidding me?   People got tired of spending that AND having the album have 1-2 good songs (hence why buying singles is now huge in itunes etc).  Besides, artists hardly make anything off the music itself, it's all about touring and other things.  If they were selling CD's for what they are now (mostly 6-10 bucks) they wouldn't have ran into an issue as fast and big as piracy.  If they would have embraced technology from the get go instead of fighting it, that could have also helped their cause.  They made bad decision after bad decision and it didn't work out.  And there is still the debate that most stuff that is pirated wasn't going to be bought in the first place, so they really aren't "losing" anything.

 

And no, I doubt VHS will make a come back, why would it?  There is no advantage of it over DVD/Blu-ray whereas vinyl has a better sound than CD or digital hence why it's making a comeback.

How to develop patience, since instant gratification is the norm now.

 

Want a song - click...dload

Want a movie - Netflix, Itunes, Amazon.....click.

News - web/twitter

Need to call someone, kids have their own phones now....don't need to wait on mom to get off the phone.

A healthy respect for the value of the creative efforts of others.

Kids these days don't think twice about pirating software, music, movies, or anything else they can download.

 

Yeah when I was a kid we had to steal them they old analog way.

The joy of listening to phone conversations by picking up the other phone ninja style. Also fear of vicious beat down if you got caught.

Did that to my brother once when he was about 14 when he was calling a girl he had a major crush on. Couldn't contain my laughter and a beat down occurred. That was the only time I recall getting caught.

Was out house hunting the other day and there was a wall mounted telephone complete with the stretched out pigtail handset cord in the kitchen.
