  2. Thank you, @Andra, for sharing the instructions with me about revoking Universal access! You are so kind! I couldn’t respond in the thread, because it is closed now — moving fast around here today! Thanks again, and enjoy the new Madonna music! A cause for celebration! 🙂

  3. I was traveling today and saw this on television screens at the airport. Truly heartbreaking to see. Grateful no lives were lost, if that is accurate. Still, spiritually and emotionally, these are difficult images to absorb. (No, I’m not French, I’ve never been to France, unfortunately ... and I’m not Catholic, although I am Christian. And it still affected me deeply. So I know there are plenty more folks who are feeling this loss on a profound level, even more so than me.)
  4. Yeah, I know I sound over the top, but ... I hear people complain about not being able to hear the version they want of a particular song, or “Hey, the Ray of Light album disappeared in my country!” ... stuff like that sounds awful. Oh, and look what happened with Frozen in Belgium! They can remove music from servers and those who stream just won’t be able to hear it. But they can’t confiscate the physical copies from those who purchased it... I don’t know what will happen if CDs are truly eliminated. I’m not sure I believe all physical copies will cease to exist in my lifetime, but anything’s possible, I suppose. I can buy vinyl (I just don’t have my own player at the moment — though I have some of M’s albums on vinyl). I also have my iPod — which is really what I use in order to listen to music. The CD is more of the back-up at this point. But I keep hearing digital sales will be eliminated (sooner than CDs, even) ... and a friend of mine who has the same iPod as me has been having trouble with hers holding a charge — so I am not sure if my iPod will last either. (I know I’ll have my mp3 library on a hard drive, but ... I need to replace that computer — it died last year — and that isn’t portable like my iPod ... blah blah blah.) Sorry you asked, @runa? I know I’m ridiculous. Good for you for moving with the times and technology! I’m just not an early adopter. (I didn’t start using iTunes until Hard Candy in 2008 ... was trying to get the bonus track “Ring My Bell.” And I think I got my first CD in 1996... which was kinda late, too!)
  5. This. I’d rather pay $10 or $20 (one time, or several if there are multiple formats) for the full album of the artist I love, than pay $10 per month ad infinitum for a streaming service that may not play what I want (or the versions of the songs I want) ... what a nightmare to think that some insular program director for a digital streaming service of the future will decide the “Like a Prayer” video was racially insensitive, or Madonna is problematic, or “cultural appropriation” in “Vogue” is unforgivable, or editing her content, or she is a “plantation mistress” (bell hooks?) ... and poof! There goes her collection and your ability to listen to her. I know — sounds paranoid. But it’s still a no-brainer to me to want to own the album. It feels like I’m supporting the artist more (even if I’m not giving them the streaming support they need in this digital age).
  6. Thanks, @Geiger83! Last month, at the place where I work, we hosted a German choir and orchestra (from Leipzig) which presented Bach’s Mass in B minor. And next month, we will present Handel’s Messiah (a large professional chamber choir with period instruments performing). A few years ago, we presented a pianist who performed piano transcriptions of the Brandenburg concertos, too!
  7. I feel spoiled because the city where I live has a classical music radio station — 24/7 FM radio that is all classical music programming. When I don’t have my iPod on in my car, that’s the station I listen to. I know that not many radio stations like thay exist anymore — many that did exist have switched formats, either partially or entirely. I guess people can get this from satellite radio and all the streaming apps now ... even cable TV has “radio” channels, and I know there is a classical one. So similar options exist. But the fact that it’s local, and real humans (not algorithms or robots) are making the selections and commenting about the music, etc., makes me feel better about it for some reason. Long story short (too late) — classical music is beautiful and relaxing, yes!
  8. Always enjoy reading what you have to say, whether it is many words or few. You never need to apologize for a long post. Not with me, at least! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. xo.

  10. True ... Same for me @Mensch, I’ve felt this for a long time and I have tried to articulate it, too ... have talked about it with friends before, too, but probably not quite as exactly. Agree with everyone’s comments here above, too ... It is so true! People are being more isolated to some extent — shared experiences are more rare. Not just pop music ... also movies and TV, too ... people watch on their own devices, etc. And look at the reaction to the SuperBowl, too. Audiences are so niche — it’s almost impossible to find or plan something that will appeal to all. And I guess that’s why the age of the superstar is fading — why M is the last of that breed of icon. It is quite sad if you think about it too long...
  11. Happy New Year, sweet Pete! ❤️
