    @tomcoates @genmon I listen to Spotify 80%ish of the time. Stuff I’ve never or hardly heard. Only buy an album on iTunes every month or two.

    @tomcoates @genmon Do you not use Spotify at all then?

    @genmon @tomcoates Young people don’t understand that these seemingly futile gestures are how we appease the technology gods and goddesses.

    @tomcoates And then occasionally buy music I want to keep in iTunes, and listen to that there.But feel increasingly silly about it. @genmon

    @tomcoates I do. But I’m not sure that’s a good thing, for you. Fwiw I listen to new music on Spotify most of the time. @genmon
