Is There Something Ironic About Buying Vinyl Online?

A colleague today raised this question: Is it ironic, or weird, or even funny, to buy vinyl — analog music — online?

The issue was prompted by the news of Vinyl Dreams, a new online-only record store started by Michelangelo Battaglia (a former electronic/dance buyer for Amoeba Music in the Upper Haight) and Darren Davis, who used to own Tweekin' Records in the Lower Haight. The store will be online-only, and it will apparently only sell vinyl. Clearly it's not the first online record retailer — but it may be the first online-only vinyl shop based in S.F.
