Thanks youth of today!!!!!!

I don't know if anybody cares but Tower Records is going out of business thanks to the IPOD carrying zombies that you see walking around plugged into head phones. Now where in the hell am I gonna buy my Japanese movies? Yes I can order them from the internet but then I have to worry about them getting lost in the mail. I don't know what has gotten into this society that everything to them is disposable and they need it right away. This situation bought back the same feelings I had when I came to the realization that I was going to have to buy a CD player because they were no longer gonna press stuff on vinyl. We lost a very good record store in that time too, WAX TRAX records on Lincoln (near the Biograph). It's funny how there are a lot of people (my age) that never got into music until CD's came around, which by the way have been around for awhile, since the 80's to be exact. I used to go to this record store in downtown called BIG DADDY's. I remember buying the New Order record CONFUSION there. I was browsing and noticed an isle with some strange looking items, I didn't know what the hell they were at the time but I knew that they were very expensive, I did see some familiar album covers that I recognized: EURYTHMICS, CINDY LAUPER. After awhile Wax Trax started to sell CD's and before I knew it I could no longer find some titles on vinyl. I remember when you could actually buy vinyl at Tower Records, they got rid of them but recently a little section reappeared again. I been going every day to see what bargains I can pickup, I felt some tears starting to well up in my eyes but I managed to choke em back before I got to the check out counter.
