Hey, I guess that it has been a little while, six months, since I wrote anything music related on here. I have been away, taking a long vacation from my wannabe music journalist vocation.

I was speaking to somebody on the day who was saying that a few years ago, if a store… Read More Record Store Day 2014: My Thoughts and Purchases
