Pullin’ in to the aluminum tin room
Dear Record Store Day,
I hate the concept of RSD for several reasons but the main reason:
1. It puts people out in record stores with the idea of making a quick buck from snatching up all the limited releases with no intentions of listening to these albums (mind you, they buy all 10 copies the store carries) and take these records home and post them on Discogs or eBay or what have you and mark up the price 10 fold. It really irks me because it takes all of the fun out of it and it deprives the individuals who are truly fans of the band and fans of music in general the opportunity to enjoy their art on a platter.
PS: I hate it so much that I refuse to go and have never been. Paul Rhem on instagram and vinylvertigo said it best, “Maybe supporting an industry year round is more important?”

Here is one of the songs.
Groove Armada- At The River
Whoa, just unearthed some music from some time ago that I used to skate to.
It’s Friday and it’s beautiful in sunny Southern California today.
