I use .flac sometimes. Why not?
It's practical, if you enjoy, and can hear the sound quality.

MP3 is a much more versatile format and used by much more devices than .flac. Besides, .flac files are larger, too.

But then again, it's hard to argue against sound fidelity.
Point is, .flac will never get to sit with all the cool kids and get all the women like .mp3.
I have no time for time, only results.

You mean mp3 is like junk food everyone can enjoy while flac is like caviar?

Well sure, it's more versatile, but my mp3 player plays .flac, so what do I care?
Also of course it takes up more space--but much less than uncompressed lossless files.
And I have 20GB of storage on my mp3 player, so I don't have to worry too much about that.

flac is just a placebo
there's a difference between flac and mp3 (320kbps) in quality, yeah, but you can barely hear it unless you got some really decent headphones that probably cost you more than they're worth, or ears so sensitive you can hear a mosquito fapping to your neighbors For listening purposes, anything other than 320kbps mp3 is pointless and will take up much more space than needed. Flac's good for when you're watching 720/1080p stuff or something. Not an expert in the field but I've found it a pretty useless audio format listening-wise.

.flac respects your freedoms.
.mp3 doesn't.

I like classical, it makes me happy. Grieg(best), Mozart, and bach, anything goes. Slam me some of those old composers and maybe some new and im happy. Intel does not listen much to them, to my great dissapointment. But, I can compromise with him on some things, like what we are listening to now, Minus The Bear: Burying Luck, from the album Acoustics. It soothes me and suits my tastes. Indeed.
ahurr.

I'm rather fond of instrumentals of popular songs. Something like this or this are played quite often on my end. I like pretty much everything on ThePianoGuys's channel, though this is their newest one.

I find this to be good. I like it. I wish I could have some more, too bad intel has his own tastes in music. Not saying I dont like it, I'm just saying I wish we could both like the same music sometimes. Intel likes country, as do I, but grieg is better, its not all about getting drunk on a mississipi saturday night. I like that(the not getting drunk part).
ahurr.

Allow me to explain about the country thing: I am not hugely into the country scene, and I only know of a few artists, some may or may not actually be country musicians either.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFtZ_Mv7hY4 Is a very good performance, by my favourite country group, Old Crow Medicine Show. Check out some of their other songs, such as Carry Me Back (To Virginia), and Half Mile Down.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BSgEb9GRNM Is also a good song, made by the artist Eric Church. I would recommend checking out his other songs too, such as Homeboy, Jack Daniels, and Pledge Allegiance To The Hag, featuring Merle Haggard. Eric Church is a real American, and this reflects in a lot of his lyrics, especially this song.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAbgmXVaOc8 Is a song from the famous Johnny Cash. I strongly recommend checking out the album American Recordings, but I am bad at google and I use spotify, so I cannot find a link to it.
Also, anything by The Avett Brothers and The Infamous Stringdusters I guess...
Anyone who disagrees are dumb. I am correct hence you are wrong.

I pretty much stopped listening to everything country after 9/11. All of the music was just so sappy and patriotic and playing the same songs over and over again that I just couldn't take it anymore.

In the 90's, I was into pop. From the '00 to about '02, I was into country. Then I got into rock. Around '06, I got into more instrumentals. Just a couple years before (around '05, I suppose), I picked up the keyboard a bit. It soon ended up adding foreign music. Mostly from Asia. Mother gifted me with this CD. I also have a "Tai Chi" track, a Celtic Woman disc, some stuff from the Philippines, and obviously, thanks to anime, lots and lots of Japanese music. However, as mentioned before, I usually take English translations from fandubbers. The translations are usually enough for me to stick around, seeing as each artist translates them somewhat differently. Such as this compared to this. (A right shame the latter isn't the full song, though.)
