well...its wednesday already.|
so...sometimes i get really bored sitting at the CD Cellar alone all day. And i get even more depressed about what people consider to be "good" music, and get pissy when i wont take it. Today alone ive already looked at 3 cranberries cds, from 3 dif. people.
a dude earlier told me that his cds were in great shape. He takes great care of them. this automatically means that they are beltsanded. and they were. and then he tried to tell me that "jock jams" was rare...and hard to find.
i ahte it when people assume i dont know what im looking at or doing. ive worked here for 5 years. i cant do this blindfolded almost. ive worked in record stores for 7 years. im not oblivious to fad music. im not clueless about whats going on. and better yet, if you are approaching me with a freaking cranberries cd (like its a hot item) you had better just assume that i know a little more about music than you.
i get ranty like this sometimes. im completely bummed about towers closing. the music industry is just caving in. the cd cellar in leesburg has bothered me for years cause the whole idea is basically, trade some music for some music. sell some stuff occasionally when you are in a tight position. the whole leesburg area just wants to dump garbage into the store. they arent interested in new music, just making money off their forgotten filth. its a shame, cause then the kids that really want a scene and a music store in leesburg come in, and its just the same tired out mid-90s country and rock compilations staring back at them. there are some people around here that do care, i dont mean to sound so...i dont know. but as a whole, leesburg just wants to pretend that it has a scene, and all the kids want to seem like they "live for music" but really, they just want to sell whatever cds they have laying around from a few years ago (hello backstreet boys and limp biskit) and download the new panic at the disco cd. All these people on myspace that claim to "live for music" are likely the ones completely killing it. why buy it when you can burn or download it? the artwork,assholes. to support the artists. (that point is irrelevant when we talk about used cd stores though...and in that case to support your local, independantly owned cd store) seriously...im far to grumpy to work anywhere but here...support me.
furthermore: on another rant: just cause im young, bouncy and occasionally wear piercings...it doesnt mean i listen to "punk rock" or "metal" and thats all i know about. I know more about 80s pop than both of those combined. fuck, dont assume that i listen to any one genre of music. Im all over the place, and please dont condesend me by saying "Oh god. Im buying Bob Dylan, and you probably dont even know who that is" (yes...something along these lines ACTUALLY happened) plus 90% of the time when people walk in, im listening to some 60s rock.
thanks for listening to me rant, livejournal. thats why i love you.
in other news, tomorrow is tim and i's 2nd anniversary bulshit. i cant believe its only been 2 year.
