    Funny how we hold onto obsolete terms.
    How often do any of you actually "sheet" packages?

    Need to sharpen your pencil?

    Have you listened to Coldplay's new record?

    Need some giddyup in this car

    Put that milk in the icebox

    Turn the channel on the TV

    What are some other outdated terms?

    Hey man, they are called Albums. Also, if you're cool, you're not talking about Coldplay and you still actively listen to records. Don't forget that Analog Audio >>>>> Digital Audio. Way more natural of a sound!
