MP3s are doomed

I found some old vinyl at a record fair hosted by the Vinyl Preservation Society. A really great both was hosted by Unified Groove Merchants from Spokane, WA. I can subscribe to this theology:
The 10 Commandments of The Vinyl Preservation Society of Idaho was founded on the following principles and respectfully asks its members to adopt them and embrace them as their own.
  1. Honor the importance of music as an art form
  2. Listen actively and with intention
  3. Respect others and their musical choices
  4. Maintain an open mind and a curious ear
  5. Choose vinyl whenever there’s a musical choice to be made
  6. Preserve our vinyl heritage by caring for and about vinyl records
  7. Recognize your ownership of the Society by actively influencing its direction
    and development
  8. Evangelize the vinyl life and your role as an Ambassador for the Society at
    every opportunity
  9. Share your vinyl history, knowledge and passion
  10. Support your local independent record merchants
