Get to Know Haley: What's one trend you wish would make a comeback?

I have found an appreciation for people who listen to vinyl albums because they're a journey tied to an experience.  They also make great heirlooms.  My mom and I spent hours going through my father's records and talking about the stories behind each one of them.  Although my Dad never got the opportunity to share his vinyl collection with me, I can still feel a piece of him every time I listen to Van Morrison's "Moondance".
