Now this would suck

December 30, 2013

Rumor is out that J&R Music World may be closing. If true, it would mean that yet another one-of-a-kind New York institution will be gone, and we’ll be left with the same generic megastores found in malls across the land.

I always loved the random and incongruous mish-mash of stores and floors that J&R was made up of, even if it didn’t always make much sense. I mean, where else is a guy supposed to pick up a new Technics 1200 (also apparently dead!! WTF!!!!!)?

    Wow, that’s where I got my first iMac in, I believe, 1997. What’s going in there, another fucking 7-11?

    The thing is, we don’t go to stores any more. We want them there, but we don’t go there so they can’t pay the rent. It is a shame. I would give the internet back if it would erase the banks and 7-11s. And, if Fat Al wanted to, he could link to the very best TV ad ever, for J&R Music World.
