Record Store Day is this Saturday!
For the past decade, independent record stores have been celebrating the survival of vinyl records. It's a movement I support: just 'cause technology grows old doesn't mean it should be abandoned. Fight back against disposable modern culture.
Also, there's charm in vinyl records: aural from their warm sound, visceral from handling them. Vinyl involves you in the process of playing recorded music; you're not merely pressing a button. They're the musical equivalent of riding a motorcycle.
Visit one of the 1,400 record stores on Saturday. There are parties, special releases and promotions.
