Buying music.

Last month I went to Tunes on route 42 in Turnersville New Jersey. First of all, any store that sells things like books, music, movies, clothes etc. is very dangerous for me because I will spend everything I have. Anyway, Tunes is a great little store that sells new and used CD's, new and used records, movies and video games.
For the last year or so I have become a bit of a hermit so when I wanted music I would download it online. I did not realize how much I missed hunting for music until I went to Tunes. There is nothing like flipping through endless racks of records not knowing if you'll find a gem. The smell of old vinyl is something you miss while clicking through iTunes.  Also I spent most of my early teenage years in record stores having long conversations about music with colorful shop owners. Those are the kind of experiences that one can not get online. So, I urge anyone who listens to music (and if you don't then what on earth are you doing?) to go to their local record shop and get that human connection!!
