Every local record store (as well as other stores) has been bought out and turned into banks. Somehow, despite the recession, there is still a new bank around here every week. I could get to fifty in five minutes, yet can't get a CD around here anywhere.

Now that I think about it, there is still one, which is half bookstore, half music store. But it's ridiculously priced. It cost me $18 for No Line on the Horizon.

I just talked to a guy who knows things, and he says there's a record store in my downtown, one which I never knew about. I'm going to check it out sometime soon.

So Utah is better than Pennsylvania?

Didn't he have it spelled it as "Uthan" in his sig for ages?

I never mentioned it, as it humored me.

Pennsylvanians seem to like turning other places into banks. My relatively small hometown has at least half a dozen banks that used to be restaurants, and only a handful of restaurants, nearly all of which suck. My parents have to drive half an hour to get a decent meal.

There's so many fucking banks. I mean, even within the last 18 months, I can name a dozen that have gone up in the five miles around my town. One's next to another bank (what the fuck?), one's at an old gas station, one's in the parking lot of an old grocery store, one's in the former home of a restaurant, etc.

I have my money in a credit union. Well, until college anyway. I need to change to PNC, to official bank of Penn State.

I'm with you here (spending a lot of money that day AND the Lips/Keys deal). I am also eyeing that Sonic youth/Beck split as well as the Decemberist single.

I bought a record player that will create MP3s before I left Pennsylvania about three years ago. Still haven't used it. But I will SOMEDAY. RIGHT!?

Although I LOVE Newbury Comics, I bet you could find a few good stores in NYC to celebrate. Try the village.

Haha, he definitely did. It was spelled Uthan in his location and I also didn't say anything because I thought it was funny. Good times, good times.
