A trip downtown for some new music

I haven't bought music in probably two or three years until today. I'm not a huge fan of the way the RIAA and its members run things so I generally choose not to do business with them. However, Melissa got an iPod and an iTunes gift card and was planning on getting a few songs from the new Weird Al cd. This was one of the few times that our tastes in music converged and I decided I would just buy the whole cd instead. I didn't really want to buy it at a big box store so a little checking turned up Vertigo as an independent music store.

I learned a few things during our excursion. One, they have a great selection. Two, most of their prices seemed to be the same or cheaper than Targets. (I checked several specifically). Three, I hate shopping downtown because I don't like to pay for parking. Four, I hate shopping downtown because its rather a pain to navigate the maze when they complicate it with one-ways and construction projects that seem to block off large sections of the downtown area. It was still worth going down there since I'd never been there, got a chance to support a local business, and it was cheaper than Target. :-)
