Today is Record Store Day, which means it's our duty to visit those beacons of 20th Century pop culture and share in our cultural heritage. Sure, everything is available online and you can get any album you want instantly with a few clicks on the screen...but there's something to be said for the experience of flipping through hundreds of albums and letting one call to you. In a world where we seem to do everything in the solitude of our own computers and phones another assorted electronic devices, we forget some of the joys that come with doing things in ways that offer more than simple convenience. So by all means, get yourself out there and spend an hour or two at your nearest record store.
And while you're out, maybe visit the book store too.
