What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Record Store Day Black Friday 2015 List

For those of you dear readers outside the USA who may be unaware.....

The Friday after Thanksgiving Thursday is what's known as Black Friday.  This is not as evil as it sounds.  It's traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year.  The day that retailers go from being 'in the red' to being 'in the black.'   To ensure the most foot traffic in their stores, major retailers offer extreme limited bargains.  Competition has become fierce.  Retailers open their doors earlier and earlier each year.  It got to the point where stores now open on Thanksgiving evening.

There's been quite a backlash against this practice.  One local camping chain announced this year that they wouldn't even open on Black Friday at all,  Instead they're giving their employees the day off and encouraging them to go outside.

Record Store Day began offering up a special release day to be part of the madness.   The special releases aren't nearly as impressive as the regular record store day that happens in April
