I don't know how old you are but back in "my days" when i used to go out a glass of beer was less than 1euro, nowadays in most pubs a beer is almost 3 euro.. same with cigarettes ..when i was much younger i smoked and a package was like 1.25euro, now its 8euro?? I quit smoking 15 years ago so i don't know for sure. When my grandfather was still alive he always said that a bread was like a few cents ( me as a kid: OMG ...yeah yeah...)..now its more than 2euro...sometimes 2.5euro...I grew up when new records in Belgium were 280BF (7euro) 500BF (12.50euro) was expensive and import...so yes..young people don't mind spending 10 euro on a cocktail..i find this EXPENSIVE 10euro for a margerita???...just my two cents (2.70euro nowadays)Nightcrawler wrote: ↑Thu May 14, 2020 10:34 amWhen new releases did cost 15$, 30$ for a semirare record seemed a lot. But since nowadays brandnew releases cost 25-30$, it seems like a new standard for records in general. I guess it is a normal thing with the growing interest in vinyl, but still it feels strange, that just 10 years ago, you could buy the whole discography of well known artists for the same amount of money that you nowadays get just one album.
no one...they're just old records of bands unknown..maybe only the big bands these youngsters will recognise..but those obscure ones/singles that i paid sometimes top dollar for...nah!..worthless i think within 20 years for those kids and when these kids have better jobs and can pay top prices we're all dead and everything was for sale in thrift stores because our grandchildren/kids don't know how to handle a big collection and give it to charity.. no high hopes here! I just enjoy them now and when i'm dead, i don't think i will loose some sleep for it.
