New vinyl might look like old vinyl, but they are made from digital recordings. New speakers are digital, and new record players that play 78s actually digitally speed up the recording. So, it's like pretend vinyl. Sort of like when Coke put out the "new" Coke and then went back to Classic, except it wasn't really the old classic because that was made with sugar and the new was made with corn syrup and the bubbles were All Wrong....
We still have the old vinyl, and I have my grandparents' old 78's to play on my analog turntable with my analog speakers.
We still have a slide projector.
We still have a dial phone and it's plugged in. Another regular phone ("vintage" Garfield) is plugged in as well. Handy for power outages.
I do have a rock-bottom cell phone, but I was eyeing one advertised for Old People with something like "I just want a phone to be a phone!" And it is! A cell phone that is just a phone! I want it!
We have a typewriter still, for fun.
I have a fridge that I manually defrost. It's not an old one, but one designed for cabins. I like it because it's silent.
And I spin wool. Or, to be precise, I still have a spinning wheel. Haven't spun in ages (almost exactly as long as might oldest daughter is old.)
Oh, and I can wield a Japanese sword. Cut some stuff, too. Really, really fun!
