I haven’t blogged for awhile and I wish I could say it was because the record store was consuming all of my energy and all the crazy shit that comes from starting a new business and opening a store. But that answer would be way too easy and one that someone would give if they not being totally honest with themselves. No, the store is going awesome,we have set August 30th as the grand opening and the renovation of this beautiful 114 year old is 99% done and all we have left to do is set up the POS (Point Of Sale) system, inventory and then bring out the records and have some fun.
Here are some pictures of the progress at the record store
No, the real reason I’ve avoided blogging is because I’ve been trying to decide what was I going to to do with this blog now that records have become more than just a passion in my life. It’s no longer just about me but about a record store that developing a life of it’s own. The amazing thing about dreams is that once you make them real they become the dreams of others. The staff, the customers, the friends all make make this dream come true. All I did was have the faith to believe that dreams do come true.
So in a few weeks 45Spins is gonna disappear and Mill City Sound is gonna take it’s place. I will still be writing it but instead of it being the observations of a music guy, it will be from the perspective of a real independent record store trying to make it in a world going digital.
Hope to see you on the flip side.
