Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


Happy 5th Anniversary to Music Saves!

Look at us, sucking up to record stores again....

But this is Music Saves that we're talking about here, people!

Here's a little video courtesy of Marissa and Kevin that will give you a bit of visual insight into how rad Kevin, Melanie, EmployLeigh, and Vinyl the Cat are.

The 5th Store-a-versary celebration is coming to a close as I write this and the Music Saves folks are celebrating with birthday donuts, beer, and music from Ramona Falls! If I weren't such a digital hermit, I'd probably be out there celebrating with everyone right now. Actually, the truth is that I wasn't able to get Brian to drive me there because it seems that he is currently at home playing with his He-Man collection.

Here's a pretty cool thank you from the Music Saves team as seen in the latest edition of the award-winning Music Saves email newsletter. If you're not subscribed yet, head on over and sign up to become part of the revolution:

THANKS THANKS THANKS to everyone that has helped and supported us over these last 5 years, from those that “work” (with or without being hired), those that come in occasionally (and maybe we’re not quite sure what your name is), to those that come in all of the time and have become our friends. We can’t express how much it really means to us (hugs aren’t enough), but if you come out tomorrow, we (and the donuts) will try.

Drop in to Music Saves for yourself and high five them for being awesome, and while you're there, grab a new fancy super-cool Music Saves t-shirt designed by C.L.E. Clothing!

This t-shirt will automatically make you just a little bit cooler, and it's only available in the store at Music Saves - not online, not from your buddy Fred, this is a Music Saves exclusimive! <-----Look at that! We just got so excited that we made up a word! "Exclusimive" is our brand new word. Because we can. musicsavest.jpg

One of our 2009 goals is to find more disposable income to spend on music at Music Saves, and in the meantime, we're hoisting our beverages in Waterloo's general direction to toast our fellow music loving friends!!

Congrats ya'll!

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
