CD's of course; the 33 and 1/3 or whatever they were called are long gone; as is my 14th birthday. Cary Grant was born in 1904 and Rock Hudson was born in 1925. Not my generation either, but TMC is my favorite movie channel when I want to look at a movie; which isn't very often. I like the old musicals,...
