[Tsunami Books] is a treasure in our community. … Scott really loves music and he makes a place for us all to have.
I’m making a new record. So I’m liquidating my personal collection, because what I want to do is make space where I am. I’m an inveterate vinyl hoarder. … I’ve done this for thirty years—traveled around in my truck and played music, and made records, and sold them. Only in the last five years has it become that no one really is into that anymore. They’re like, “Well, I want to download it for free now.”
We’re definitely straddling eras here. This era is an old way that’s moving out, and the people who still like records, the people who still like books, they’re considered to be not modern anymore. Which is really weird. It’s like in the '50s, when you’d read science fiction books. [Holds up a copy of Fahrenheit 451.]
