    Seeing the music rotating on a platine is half the experience. Without that half it's tough to adapt in the dark. Romance can do that to music lovers. The music no matter the format is alive. It's part of human nature.

    Hi Paul,

    I used to spend roughly between $200 and $500 every single week on music and movies (CDs, DVDs). ...Anything to do with the emotional chords that vibrate inside us.

    It's not what we own or don't own, it's what we live for.
    And the common passion we all have here, and there, is the "Sound". ...The "Music".
    ...And it's everywhere, even outside in the trees, and in the air, and in the ground.

    ...And the degree, the level of our communication lets us explore all the young and older generations.

    Through our emotions and inspirations and dreams and passions, a lot of things is going on in the world, and it affects us all more or less in what drives us in the first place. Music can be an escape to the ugliness that happens here and there, and it can also be a complement to the happy things that's going on. There is a reality, and there are doors that are close and others that are open.

    Talking is one thing, doing another, living is the reality.

    - Wrote 500 characters too many.

    I guess you have some other occupations nowadays, you keep a lower profile at the Shark's room.
