It’s that time of year again, everyone’s favorite new holiday, Record Store Day! So decorate the record player, put out the milk-and-cookies out for Ozzy, and head down to Cactus Records for a day of free live music, special indie-only releases, prizes, give-aways (including a USB turntable!), good vibrations and warm fuzzies.
As Official Record Store Day Ambassador Ozzy Osbourne put it: “Record Store Day [mumble, mumble] an important part of [mumble, something, something, mumble] history. That is why [mumble, mumble] will always [some more mumbling, followed by a word that sounded like “flugelhorn” but could have just been Ozzy clearing his throat] corn-dog! Sharron, where are my [edited] shoes? Has anyone seen my [edited] shoes?”
I couldn’t have put it better myself!
