What is that? 90 bones?

A scan of this week's Soundscan charts (actually, they call it NEXT week's Soundscan charts but really, if it debuted last week and the numbers are available this week, in this age of instant publishing do we really need to wait until NEXT week?) will show that, yes, the record companies should soon get the hint that it's 30-and 40-somethings buying up CDs and not the teens/20s with coveted disposable income. In the UK, they've given it a name: the 50-Quid Man. The one who strolls into Virgin or HMV and drops 50 Pounds (roughly 90 dollars) on a couple of CDs, a DVD, a magazine and/or a book. Every week. Disposable income going to durable entertainment goods.

Ok, to avoid laziness...

The current exchange rate would make this term, in the US, the $89.96 Man or Woman, which is not quite as catchy but plenty rhythmic off the tongue.

Shouldn't there be a link to an MP3 of Jamie Cullum's "The Wind Cries Mary" somewhere in this post, Jazzbot?

I agree with you about the way you view the issue. I remember, long time ago, Jack London said something like "Everything positive has a negative side; everything negative has a positive side." I also find it interesting to see different points of views and learn useful things in the discussion.
