Tomorrow is National Record Store Day How are you going to celebrate? It's a day to celebrate independent record stores across the country. Do you know how I am NOT going to celebrate? Buying a Justin Bieber album! The little girls next door play him all.day.long. I really, really can't take it much longer. Ugh, oh well. I used to love going into my local record store, The Quonset Hut in Ohio and perusing the aisles for hours and deciding which to take home. A local artist? Perhaps more Pearl Jam? Or maybe I need some posters for my wall!! (you can never have too many posters when you are 15) Over the years, we have sadly watched record stores close one by one until there are so few left you can count them on one hand. I admit, I love my iphone with all of its music and apps, but there is something so nice about having an entire album in your hands. The liner notes and lyrics used to make my day. I could sing along with the album the day I got it. It makes me a little sad that my son will probably never ask for the "insert future popular artist here's" new album. So go out. Buy something! It will make you feel warm and fuzzy, I promise.
