One Saturday, 3 kids on 3 separate occasions, shouted to their friends, 'I found your band.' They all were referring to The Queers. It was WIAA boys wrestling tournament that weekend.
I'm at the Behemoth show and this girl I'm with wants to sneak backstage. I'm always up for that kind of stuff so I said I'd create a diversion. Before I could even think of anything, she runs behind the security guy. He spots her right off, shines his flashlight and even had to grab her leg as she's running up the steps. I slip backstage. I guess she was the diversion.
Kid looking at a rack of LPs, asks Dad, 'Are those calendars?'
Customer: 'I see that logo around a lot. Is Dry a good band?'
EW: 'Yeah, D.R.I. is good'
Customer bursts in: 'Dude, I'm looking for the heaviest, most brutal shit out there...like Pantera.'
Psychic from other business in the building: 'Do you have the bathroom key?' EW: 'You tell me.'
So I have old and new LP jackets stapled to my CD racks as decoration. One is Celtic Frost 'Emperor's Return'. It came in used, damaged. It looked like a black, dirty pizza missing a piece. Literally, it had a huge missing chunk. I also have 'Hail The New Dawn' stapled up. I found it in a dollar box but it was very warped. Some people notice that. Most don't. Anyway, Emperor's cover is a painting with a couple scantily clad ladies and a topless demoness., but you know that. A dad and his son come in and the boy is just standing there staring at the jacket. Mesmerized. The boobs, not Hail The New Dawn. He couldn't take his eyes off it. LP jacket is about 3 feet off the ground so I don't how old that kid would have been. But yeah, he was staring at boobs at 8 (?) years old. 'Hey buddy, are you OK?' says the Dad, and breaks his trance. I have since censored the boobs.
I sold a bunch of stuff on Discogs one weekend including a Michael Jackson LP & T-shirt box set. I bought it on super clearance at Hot Topic and have had it for years. Paypal only tells you the item number, you have cross reference it with Discogs to see who bought it. One of the buyers was named Yolanda. I'm thinking, totally that's the MJ set. Yeah, she bought an Anaal Nanthrakh album.
Customer: 'We have to eat chickens and animals or otherwise there'd be so many of them, they'd be running wild in the streets.'
Customer: 'What are we listening to?'
EW: 'Funeral Mist.'
Customer: 'Sounds like Negative Approach.'
Customer: 'Oh, I need some stickers for my long board. They have a Guns N' Roses one.' (she didn't buy it)
Setting up a trade with a dude from Russia. I emailed him, 'I'll get back with you tomorrow.' His reply, 'In Russia, tomorrow is today.'
Kid, pointing at FEAR 'More Beer' poster, asks, 'Is that Foo Fighters?'
I had a used leather jacket for sale. A dad and his daughter came in and she tried it on. I wanted to sell it, so I was like 'Yeah, it looks good on you'. The dad says to me, 'Hey man, she's just 16'.
I saw a flyer from Best Buy before the holidays. People have told me they don't have a lot of CDs anymore. The entire thing featured only 5 CDs. One was Johnny Mathis Christmas blah, blah, blah, the other four were Metallica, Korn, Green Day and Avenged Sevenfold. Granted, those are more mainstream bands but fuckin A, metal and punk rule music.
All items for sale on Discogs are available in the shop.
