Man, please don't tell me they are putting a Savings bank and an Applebees in their place. What gives here? At least keep one good record store open. Vinyl is making a small comeback in the mainstream now, I hear.

hey, did you know Disc-O-Rama on Bleecker is gone now too? maybe that's old news but I just saw that this morning, I was pretty sure it was open fairly recently...

Yeah, Disc-O-Rama now has a spot on 8th street, but they're no great shakes, really. Their Union Square spot is still there too, I believe.

The Kims demise is like a punch to the stomach -- I still have a list of movies not on DVD that I had planned on renting. Well at least St. Marks still has Sounds, The SM Ale House and the Yakitori place across the street.

yeah, that's been there for years.

all three of them have sucked for a long time, but the Bleecker St. one was where I bought my first CDs back when I was a Columbia undergrad. so there's a store I actually felt a second of nostalgia for, just to prove I'm not a hundred percent Grinch (like 99.6 tops).
