my music, my store

Well, I went to WalMart today, just to get out and enjoy some good AC. I came away with new underwear, socks, and a couple of cool ties, one burgundyish and one a dark silver. Sorry to all the detractors. I used to be one myself, when I lived up in Vermont. I LOVE WALMART! I am not too cool to shop somewere with a white trash reputation! I cross stereotype lines, people!

Now, on to my Musicmatch Jukebox. I must list the bands on mine. Russ talked about his selection. May as well divulge mine (band: song):

The Call: The Walls Came Down

Dude, I used to live in Vermont, which is known for Phish-listenin', granla-eatin', old-Subaru-and-Volvo-drivin' hippies. The area I lived in, Brattleboro and vicinity, was very activist in it's crusade to remain the last state without a Wal-Mart. There were bumperstickers on everybody's cars saying stuff like "NO TO WALMART" or whatever. Thing is, Vermont is a very difficult place to develop because of Act 250, which, IIRC, makes you have to petition to the state in order to build a new building, especially for commercial purposes. So, only in the late '90's, when I left, did walmart ever open up in Vermont. The one near us was in Hinsdale, NH (we were in the "Tri-State Region", which is anchored by Brattleboro, VT; Keene, NH; and Greenfield, Mass---the NH side is very hillbilly).

Thank you.

And darnit, everybody should. Glad Reno isn't overly quaint so that nonsense doesn't happen.
