It was like I was in 4th grade again, getting my first AM radio with an earplug; which meant I could hide under the covers read comics, etc. and listen to “music”. Something that was an unknown entity, existing only on my parents radio during our occasional horrendous ~ long ass drive ~ family vacations to Maine or upstate New York. I don’t think we got a “regular” TV until 1974 or so. Up until then the TV repair guy would show up (seemed like weekly) to check and replace “blown” tubes. But……. back then when you pressed play, everything worked. Magically, scratchy, jaded in presentation as it might have been, it worked. Then the “industry” got informed and developed “replacement” technology. The purposeful out dating of format or components, creating planned absolution. We went from 8 tracks, to cassettes, to cd’s, and now to MP3’s, ITUNES in a very short period of time. Representing massive change in the way we listen to and purchase the music we “OWN”. But it was the late 90’s, I didn’t give a crap, was sold on the latest tech gadget and ran to the nearest Apple Store to purchase my first Ipod. I was stoked. At first I loved it. Then reality set in. I recently had a terrible issue with this major music retail outlet. After being unable to “correctly” answer security questions that I had set at the insemination of my account in 2009, I was unable to retrieve over $300.00 of music from them. Simply because they couldn’t change my password; did they want a DNA sample from me? There was NOTHING they could do for me. Hence, my conclusion ~ You only own your music when you OWN it. So, I created changed. The other day I stomped out my Nano in the street returning to the days of old, going back to a simplistic CD player and a (multiple choice ~ non prioritized MP3 player) for me. Sometimes turning the clock back an hour or two isn’t such a bad thing. I have found peace and a love for music that I never would have listened to before; simply because I now patronize an actually brick and mortar CD STORE. I no longer indiscriminately order overpriced individual songs in my underwear on ITUNES at 2:00 AM. There is nothing like visiting an actual brick and mortar Music Store where knowledgeable people interact with you in a “cool” way and actually appreciate your business. The place of my choice is Mr Cheapo, 2020 Jericho Toke, Mineola, NY. Great guys, really knowledgeable, and unbelievably helpful. No attitude B.S. here. They have been there over 30 years and have a HUGE selection at great prices. There are even bargain bins with really good stuff for $2.99…. That’s $2.99..!!! You can barely buy a soda for $2.99 today. Never ever allow yourself to be enslaved by a “prioritized” system that doesn’t allow you to own your must precious treasure, music.

My daily drive by or patronage at mr cheapos is one that I liken to direct contact and sad reminiscence of a species entering the latter stages of extinction by the hands of corporate iTunes and pirate media wrath. It's a reminder of times that passed less than a decade ago before The Machine as I call it began to make marketing a tangible album more difficult and begun to bring all the impishly mediocre and downright terrible "artists" to the mainstream that our ears are blessed with today, and left the hard working and talented musicians behind to eat the scraps. Mr cheapos is one of the last, and endured even after tower records and the legendary slipped disc fell under. Lets keep them around for the long run Thomas C. 4/22/2013
