Day 2/365

Going Out Of Business - Now Hiring

At lunch, I saw this juxtaposition of contradictory words. It amused me, and made for an easy entry for the 365.

I guess I might kinda miss Tower Records... but not really. CD stores are kinda toast, these days, aren't they?

I haven't found any CD stores I really like down here, but when I still lived in the Boston area, I was very loyal to Newbury Comics, and enjoyed the occasional visit to the HMV in Harvard Square. Physical browsing is something you can't do easily on amazon.com.

It looks like newbury comics is still hanging in there - maybe they sell enough random other stuff to make decent margins. While i like to browse sometimes, it's nice to have access to reviews online - i almost never buy a CD i know nothing about. Also, compared with prices online, stores like Tower are so overpriced! 20 bucks for a CD! but that is the record companies' fault - those parasites...

Most businesses when they close will hire transient workers to finish up, as their long-term workers will begin trickling out as they find other jobs. And there are lots of folks happy to take seasonal employment - college students looking for a short-term gig, artists, folks in between jobs.

Sadly, these positions will get more expensive in this state now, which means there will be fewer of them.
