Maybe it's a sign of the times, what with CDs slowly going the way of the eight-track and computers taking the place of stereos, but we have noticed our apartment no longer has a designated space for music. When did this happen?
Our music is now mainly consolidated onto our laptop, and the couple binders we have to store our dwindling CD collection are stored with our books and magazines, rather than in their own area. We're actually kind of ashamed to admit it, but we don't even own a stereo - just some speakers attached to the computer. There was a time when we thought a lack of a music collection was a harbinger of decrepitude, but now we're thinking it's a mixture of new technology and a sagging economy that has made it more the norm (or is that major denial?). In the interest of figuring this out, we want to conduct an informal survey - do you have a space for music? And if so, is it a prominent part of your home or an afterthought?
