3. CD/MP3 or vinyl?
oh DEFINATELY Vinyl whenever possible. Mp3's are okay if you have the rights to play what you're playing (ahem). I think CD's and mp3's should only come out when you are playing your own stuff, or your buddies stuff, not pre-release crap you downloaded on soulseek. (steps off soapbox)
Here's a nice little fact.
These birds are called Boobies, when out at sea sailors would set wire traps on the decks of the vessels to catch these birds.
Hence the term "Boobie traps"
