Note to the Thrift Stores...

Gaah, I know this is sounding like a thrift blog but, whatever. I mean, what else an I going to write about? Indie rock?

Anyway, if I could make one suggestion to the thrift stores of the world it would be this; either put your CDs at the front of the store in a case or expect them to be stolen. I can't count the number of empty CD cases I find thrifting. I fully understand that people probably donate empty CD cases the same as they donate broken Lexmark printers and hotel shampoo. But I have a hard time believing that every three out of four CDs donated are missing the discs.

And yeah, I've been thrifiting again. Let me just say this, if I found what I think I found this afternoon, I may have one of the coolest things I've ever found at a thrift on my hands.

UPDATE: the cool thing is cool, but not as cool as I'd hoped. Was it $15 worth of cool? Yes, I'd say it was, but I'm weird like that. I'll be cluing you in soon enough.

Gaah! What did you find? You can't just leave us hanging!

I hope you don't mind, but your post gave me an idea I'm going to try to incorporate into my blog, if I can figure out how.

Yeah, I want to talk indie too, but leave the rock alone and examine the culture.

Not being a true indie rocker, that makes it a little difficult. But I DO read Questionable COntent and listen to KBVR, so I'm a little indie.
