There are those that ewould have you believe that I boycotted or deliberately missed Record Store Day.
That is only half true.
While I support independent music stores, and find them to be worthwhile and even necessary enterprises, they are not for me.
I'm a grown ass man.
Gone are the days when I had hours to while away, having esoteric arguments about whether Flava Flav added something of value to Public enemy (He was indeed the yang to Chuck's ying).
But now I have kids. I have an entire digital music collection. And I shop online. I am a child who was born with both the knowledge of the preelectronic life, and an entirely digital one.
And I chose the one and zeros.
record Store is an important event, and I'm glad bands and customers turn out to syupport them. But like my beloved print newspapers, they are an anachronism, a relic of bygone era. i support you, but I'm not sure I can sustain you.
