Does Anyone Buy Records at a Store Anymore?

Apparently so. Because my friend Michael did. And the story he tells is one that should remind you there's something you can only get by venturing out into the 'real' world every now and then instead of relying on iTunes or Amazon to bring everything to you.

Here's a snippet:
I walked past the fellow music lovers, found Caitlin's CD, and paid my five bucks (worth every penny). Before leaving to finish my errands, I stuck around to hear Matthew Ryan sing a few songs. Every part of me was happy in the moment. I didn't know anyone and I made no connections with anyone there. Yet I felt more in place there right then than almost anywhere else I can think of.
Go read the rest.

Thanks for the link. I thought about you as I wrote that. Something about all of those young, positive-minded people in one room.

Cool People Care, indeed.
