I can not even tell you all how bummed out I am that I am missing Record Store Day 2009.
I’m sure many of you are aware of this amazing day dedicated to music in record format. Tons of record stores across the nation will be engaging in the celebration of music and will all be selling special limited edition records from bands that I am sure will sell out before lunchtime.
This day I hope will help all the independent record stores out there continue to do what they love. Sell music to music lovers. In a day and age where downloading is killing the music industry it is nice to see a day that will be taking place inside music stores.
I have a list in my head of records I would buy if I had the day off but regretfully I have to work the entire day.
Yes, I have to work. ALL DAY.
Sacrifices have to be made sometimes and I was unable to get the day off as I have other things going on the the weeks to come… I am not happy with my decision and I am pretty sure that Matt from Addicted To Vinyl will be texting me every hour telling me what great record he just bought and how much fun he is having.
I am sure that on Saturday a single tear will drop from my eye. I will feel pain every time a vinyl fan smiles. The day will be the longest day ever.
If you are a fan of vinyl you should check out www.recordstoreday.com and see what this is all about. It is the perfect opportunity to but some really special releases that will only be available for a limited time.
So to all you jerks who are off on Saturday and are planning on celebrating Record Store Day, enjoy.
