Pity he can't get his facts right. Dwaynes has NOT closed: http://www.dwaynesphoto.com/ they have just stopped processing Kodachrome. They still offer C41, E6 and B/W.

Yeah, all the hype around Dwayne's ceasing thier Kodachrome processing has the public thinking that Dwayne's, Kodak, and slide film all together are all dead.

I agree with everything he said... except about turntables.
Sorry kids, you can make that argument with 2-inch, 15IPS 24 track master tapes, but a vinyl record is NOT a good way to record music!
I say this from experience - I had record made in the early 80's, and sat first in fascination, then in horror, as the guy mastering my record rolled off a bunch of the bass and made other completely non-musical decisions, because of things like high bass = fat groves, which = shorter play time.

However, I must agree, I'm dismayed that with all the possibilities of truly high-def music, almost everyone is happy to hear music on a crappy iPod or other such devices that sound like utter crap.
We've gone backward, a small set above the old transister AM radio quality audio.

Ahhhh, I miss the good old days...sigh...
