Download music // buy a CD
Buy a CD. I want the physical thing, that can’t be lost in-between format changes or computer moves. Plus, I love the liner notes. Bands know they have to compete with digital downloads, so they are making great packages. I love the liner notes, and the pictures, and (often) the little essays that come with an actual CD.
Use MP3 player // Use CD Player
In the truck, CD. I have a really good system in the truck with a subwoofer. At home, I use streaming. It’s just easier. Plus, I have a smart TV plugged into a very good bose home theater hifi. So, I can watch live youtube music through the hifi, and it’s amazing.
Watch a movie at a theater // Rent a video
Same with a football game, at home. Unless it is something like Lord of the Rings, I am happy to watch it all at home. Have a big and nice LED tv, and (as I mentioned) a great hifi. Plus, seeing a movie is wicked expensive. Tix are about $10 each. For me and the wifey to go see a movie, after a snack or two, we are out $30. OR… I can wait 2 months and OWN it for more than half that cost.
Amusement park for the day // Picnic in a park for a day
Amusement part. Do you think I am dead inside? Am I that old? Last year, I went to Water World for the first time. It was amazing!
Read a magazine // Dollage with a magazine
Dollage with a magazine? I have no idea what that sentence means. What is dollaging? I guess I ought to google it. Ok, that didn’t work. Google thought I wanted to say ‘collage’ a magazine. Is that the question? Who the hell writes this stuff? Not me. I rarely if ever write the questions, only the answers. Am guessing dollaging is some kind of pinterest/etsy craft soft of thing. How about a bonus question to make up for that one?
What cheap (<$20) guilty pleasure can turn a bad day into a good day?
