Barnes & Noble, it does not have the best selection of music. I wanted new albums from ... and you will know us by the trail of dead, Shalabi Effect, and Boards of Canada.
Instead, I could only find Sigur Ros, Zero7, and Superchunk. This is not a bad thing, just not what I wanted. But it's hard to complain about "free" music. So to all the idiots who say that downloading music suppresses sales -- get over it. Your sales are slumping during a recession. I love how the recording industry uses this argument now. Two years ago when Napster was huge and sales were up, it was part of normal variation in sales.
On my way home, I noticed Tower was having a sale. [ yes, i felt dirty shopping at a big corporate record store, but a sale's a sale. anyway most of my other recent purchases have come directly from artists or from independent stores. feeling better now. ] Anyway, I found Source Codes and Tags, and the first Boards of Canada for cheap. Still, the other two elude me.
I think the internet has spoiled shopping for me.
