When I buy music I only buy CDs, I like having something physical to collect, the artwork in the case etc. Bestbuy probably never carried the kind of music i'd be buying anyways, though I did find a Rammstein album once.

Very occasionally he listened to the message on a record. But I'm not sure if it was a 12" vinyl record. It seemed a little floppier and thinner. I think there were records like that.

Are you sure that's from 2001? Those colours look more like from 1971.

Those actions would be disavowed by the secretary.

These vinyl hipsters are also lame, considering the vast majority of the albums they buy were recorded digitally anyway and therefore sound no "warmer" on a record.
This is the reason to buy music CDs, mp3 music is of inferior quality.

Our hipster grandkids will listen to their future retro music on CD's because they have "better sound" than the downloads they get implanted into their spines.

Speaking for myself; I have less love for Lord of the Rings lore than I do for Star Wars. LotR franchise to me is an allegory for white men fighting their crack addiction, nothing more.

Their music repertoire is painfully limited, same as Target. It was a matter of time for them to discontinue sales altogether.
