Those of you who know me best know that I am some what obsessed with music.
I could spend hours in a music store. I love reading reviews of upcoming albums in Entertainment Weekly. I love finding a new song that isn't big yet and telling others about it. I love when I can say, "Oh I bought that CD last year, and it is just getting popular now."
In college I think the employee's at Tower Records Northridge, Woodland Hills, and Thousand Oaks new me by first name because I would go in every Tuesday to see what the new releases were.
iTunes and my iPod changed my life for the better.
I still mourn the day I got the email from Tower Records telling me they were closing their retail stores.
I accepted the fact that I would now have to shop at the Virgin Megastore. I was never a huge fan of Virgin because I felt they were overpriced compared to Tower.
But now Virgin is going out of business too, and for a music lover this is very sad!
That being said, I am very proud of myself, because even though the entire store is on clearance I have only allowed myself to buy one CD! Trust me, for me, that is a minor miracle.
So to Tower, Virgin, Sam Goody, The Wherehouse, Licorice Pizza, I miss you all!

There's still Barnes & Noble and Best Buy. The Westlake B & N has a rather large selection.ReplyDelete
You forgot about Blockbuster Music, which you know took the Warehouse's location in Thousand Oaks.ReplyDelete
