  • The same old story. Jesus, this makes me feel jaded.

    Vinyl sales at their highest for 12 years.

    Can anyone pull last year's thread out of the archive (and the year-before-that's, etc.)? I'm curious* to see how long the press has been printing this same story. It reminds me of the annual GSCE and A-level pass-rate stories, until this year anyway. Good news for Julian and John and those of you making records of course, so that's something.

    *Very mildly.
    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

    I read that as "Jesus makes me feel jaded" - would have been a secular attack from out of nowhere.

      "(vinyl) LPs now account for 0.8 per cent of all albums sold in the UK."

      Up from 0.1% 5 years ago... hardly a massive change in music purchasing behaviour now is it?

      I agree with the hero, pointless regurgitation.

        that's an 800% increase!

        well, it's a 700% increase, but the current stat is 8 times the old one and the 800% makes a better headline, dammit.

              It's only jade-inducing for record fans though, innit, who might notice it year after year. For people with less interest in records, *if* they see it's annual arrival, they'd be like, oh that's odd and might make a remark to their teenage kids about it. It's what life's about this, stories and teenagers rolling their eyes.

                Meaningless stats too. Don't prove an increase in anything.....

                Couldn't agree more with the main point. I don't suppose there is any more 'news' these days than there ever was. First they invented the concept of 'news'. And then the concept of '24 hour news'. So now they have to invent 'news' (and perpetuate a constant state of moral outrage about absolutely everything) to fill airtime, websites etc...

                  Yes!
                  And then beat up a prostitute.

                              More likely a slack editor, rather than a slack hack.

                              I've rewritten a couple of feature articles I've delivered upon their anniversaries - which substantiates the suspicion that these 'events' are cynically manufactured on a seasonal basis. Most of it tied in with advertising revenues etc, I suspect. Either that, or my editor really couldn't be bothered.

                              I can't wait until it gets a little chillier, and the Daily Mail and their odious chill-mongering ilk hit us with the ARCTIC SUB ZERO MURDER DEATH BLAST headlines. Bring it.

                              The other irritating ubiquity in online 'journalism' which I currently despise is the prevalance of '10 best' '10 must see' or 10 '[insert any old superlative]' lists. Why. Bother?
