My vinyl collection is nowhere near as extensive as yours, I have two 2x2 ikea kallax shelves and they are far from being full, I don't even have 300 LPs. When they are full I'll just add another one, I still have room.

CDs are a different matter, I am approaching 2.000 and they take up more room than you would expect. The only storage solution that is commercially available are those ikea media towers, I do have a number of them but never liked the way they look. I have to instal shelves that go up the wall so to take advantage of its height. Then I'll have a ladder so I can get to the CDs on the highest shelves. And if I slip and fall and die....well IT'S THE SOAPBOX, WHATCHAGONNADOABOUTIT

Genuine question: why bother keeping CDs unless it’s some incredibly rare EP on a tiny label that’ll never end up on a streaming site? I’ve still got a few, like a couple of dozen tops.

Yeah Chrissie I know but it's my collection, it's what I've been doing since I was 15 >:(
I like the idea of having an "archive" that tells a bit about my story too, that's what collections have always been about.
And if streaming isn't going to disappear anytime soon, then the same is true when forking out 20, 30, 40 quid to have digitally sourced vinyl that most of the times sounds just like the version you can stream, correct?

I love and collect vinyl (waiting for a couple of packages from Brazil atm) but I still think CD is a valid medium. Especially nowadays that you can have so much stuff for 3 quid a piece (can you even buy a cup of coffee for that price?!). And I do love to get stuff that isn't on streaming services and I couldn't hear otherwise...

I have a load of CDs as well that are currently sitting in an old dusty bin. I haven't looked at them in ages but yet I can't get rid of them either.

Haven't heard Force of Nature in years! - I had to go back and make sure Gem never wrote it. I am trying to blacklist all of his songs.

Force of Nature is the greatest fucking break-up song ever, it's like all the songs from Blood on the Tracks rolled into one with none of the low-testosterone whining, it's just a big fuck you you aren't getting any of my money you silly tart

only The French Inhaler by Warren Zevon comes close as far as break-up songs go
but Force of Nature is better

This is the kind of nuclear hot take the forum has been severely lacking in.

More please.

I'm currently waiting for a package of LPs from Brazil, shipped with FedEx
I really want to show this to you guys
The FedEx website says it should arrive to my home in Rome within a couple of hours
But it also says the package is still in Memphis Tennessee
For some reason I find this incredibly funny :D

Will you have to pay much duty/tax on those vinyl? Or was the shipper responsible to pay?

TBH this is the first time they used a private courier such as FedEx to have a package shipped from Brazil.
I've always used regular international shipping and never had to pay a cent in duty/taxes. And I have received many many packages over the years (books, CDs and LPs). I don't know the rules honestly, but I think I'll have to pay a % with FedEx.
The guy said FedEx is awesome and I'll get the package in less than 14 days etc...(it takes 30 days usually)
Package was scheduled to arrive 2 hourse ago.
It's still in Memphis Tennessee.
I'm so not in Memphis Tennessee.
