Are you serious? That's both incredibly odd and incredibly awesome.

First I download anything I like (hey, it's legal here, shush!) or think I might like (for example an album of an artist of whom I just heard a track).
Then, if I really do like it, I buy the CD. Much easier than going to a CD store and sampling CDs with their crappy headphones etc.
There's no actual reason to buy the CD other than that I like to buy them (to support the artist and of course to get a super accurate rip).
I voted 2-4 weeks.
Oh yeah, I am not kidding. When you tear open the plastic cover, you will smell the cotton candy on the packaging for a few days. I noticed it right away, but I did not comment until another member pointed it out for me.
This morning at a garage sale I bought 5 CDs of techno and electronica for 50 cents each. Two of them were double disc sets, and all of them were scratch-free.
Bought Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier today after blindly buying the last two ones on pre-order. Anyways I seldom buy records the first month as the price gets reduced after a while, pre-listening is great when there's hardly any record stores left.
I remember when Eno & Byrne released their latest record, that's the way to do it: http://www.davidbyrne.com/music/cds/everything_that_happens/index.php
I get (on average) 2+ used albums per month from eBay and other various second hand cd stores.
Prices of new CDs in Australia is grossly inflated, hence I purchase them from all over the world and tend to stick with used copies.
I'm one of the few teenagers I know at my school who still buys CDs. I greatly appreciate my fathers old record collection and would hate to pass on a external hard drive to my children as a representation of my music collection.
Plus the booklets are fun.
6 CD's today, "111 Years Of Deutsche Grammophon" and more than 6 hours of music in one compilation. Plus Jay Z's début album...
Hero Kid, the booklets are indeed fun...
The last CD I bought wasn't for me, does that count? It was the new Stone Sour CD for my brother's birthday.
The last CD I bought for myself was less than a week ago, it was Daniel Lioneye - Vol II. I buy tons of used CDs off amazon and ebay. It's become an addiction. If I don't have at least 1 CD in transit to me, something feels wrong.
I used to pirate music, I have Fido2 to thank for making my wallet that much emptier.
