Tuesday’s Memes – Music Streaming

Since no one buys albums anymore, we might as well do a collection of memes on Music Streaming.  It is only fair we show memes of the glory of music streaming or what we actually hate about it or both.  If you haven’t moved over to the digital age, you aren’t really missing a whole lot other than convenience, mobility and access to every freaking song on the planet all for the price of a CD.  But having the CD or vinyl in your hand is still the best thing ever!!

Here we go…
