Glitchwerks: Let's see, I can spend an hour driving to an actual record store, try to walk and browse through an overcrowded store filled with hipsters, all to buy an obsolete format OR I can sit at home, browse new releases, listen to them as I please, purchase them and download them and send them to my iPod within that same time frame.I get it, it's good to support local businesses, but record stores are a dying concept. They have been on life support for years and it will be sad to see them go, but at the same time, good riddance.I've never been in a record store that wasn't a cramped, filthy little hole that wasn't next to impossible to shop. The clerks don't know the inventory, and few of them actually know that much about music. Even worse is when you try to get help and the clerk acts like a snobbish prick.It's also not fun to buy stuff that's supposedly new, and then finding later that it's been manhandled to hell because there was only one copy and that was the one they managed to scratch while putting it in the CD player for a listening booth. Or you bought that record because it was the last one left and you know you'd never see it again if you didn't pick it up...banged up sleeve and all.So fark record stores.
