Do They Know It’s Christmas Time At All?

A job in retail has all but crushed my Christmas spirit. Twelve years of working in the mall and you really get to see the worst in people. (There are only so many Ms. Von Middleagedrichbitch who are buying enough “40% off the Holiday Collection” clothes to outfit a village that you can deal with.) I was reminded of this again just a few weeks ago on Black Friday, (which is a part of American culture that has made its way up North that I would gladly return for a full refund if I could).

It’s been about seven years since I first heard of Record Store Day and even then, I didn’t know too much about it other than the fact that my favorite band in the entire galaxy U2, was releasing a limited edition (of only five thousand to be exact) EPs on vinyl for Record Store Day’s “Back To Black Friday” initiative. At the time, I didn’t even own a record player, but I contacted our local record store, Fred’s and asked if they were getting any copies of this collectible item in. That’s all I thought of Wide Awake In Europe; a collectible item. Black Friday came and went and I got my hands on the record. The EP’s sleeve was…
