END OF AN ERA

It's hard to believe that just a few short years ago, chain stores like Tower and HMV were the enemies of indie stores like NYCD. But HMV's long gone, and now the same changes in music retail that made us close our brick-and-mortar store have officially killed Tower as well. A very sad day for music lovers all over the country, and especially in New York and L.A.

Read all about it here.

We were sad about NYCD's demise, too! Now we have to go to an office every day -- the very thing we opened NYCD to avoid doing! On the other hand... There was a story in the Times the other day about Coliseum Books shutting its doors for good. They lost business because their customers wouldn't walk 15 blocks out of their way to shop at their new location. A lot of our customers couldn't be bothered to walk AROUND THE CORNER to our second location, and told us as much. So we're sad we had to close up shop, but we don't exactly miss most of our "loyal" customers. Although you, Mr. Soundsource, were one of the good ones.

Wow, I love those semi-disguised, semi-medicated automatic posting ads. You can take those words of praise to your graver: "it for sure fixes it's ranks very high-pitched." I couldn't agree more.

I am super-sad about Tower Records, which always had the aura of an indie chain made good, to me. Huge depth and you could often depend on some critically acclaimed album to be buried in the stacks years after it disappeared elsewhere. I tried to buy a pile of shopping bags from them (I use them for carting my mail home) and the manager refused. I can't do that, she said. (I would have paid whatever they paid or more and of course in a day or two they'll all be thrown out.) How stupid is that?

I love the Dada-esque nature of these automated ads. "This site is unlikely. It's virtually a ambition come exact to me -- TROPICAL FISH!" It's like doig drugs while reading.
