But where will be buy our LPs from ?

Two stories on the news last night got me thinking.

Dymocks Bookstore in Wellington has gone into liquidation.

And the last Virgin Megastore in Manhattan has just closed.

I understand it doesn't have much to do with the first story, but sometimes the side effects of this whizz-kid-cyber-world we live in really suck.

Yeah It took me a year to move my itunes music onto my ipod and that was a year ago and still haven't updated it since then. And I only have 1800 songs on it which is apparently rubbish low.

Dymocks! That's the bookstore I used to shop in when I lived in Sydney, had forgotten the name. Thanks for reminding me.

But that is a shame.

The big one on George Street? I used to go there all the time. And to the smaller one on Hunter Street as I liked the staff there better.

Well, okay, I fancied one of them.
