Just found this informative video on how vinyl records are actually made, which is a crazy-complicated process. Despite the ups, downs, or chug-along of the music industry and the format wars, vinyl is still in popular demand (vinyl at Best Buy, anyone?), and I wouldn’t be surprised if it supersedes compact discs in the next couple years. We’ll have to see how vinyl dukes it out with USB albums, which is still the closest thing to a physical record that’s actually digital, for those who still care about the tactile experience. If you want to read up more on vinyl, check out wikipedia’s article on it.
