I really, really miss crate digging and rummaging through the double-discard vinyl at the end of the line secondhand stores. That's where it feels the most meaningful.
Anyone can curate a good selection at a record store. That's the whole point! But it's not real digging. It's just appreciating someone elses curation strategy. Real digging means working through dirt.
I guess the other thing I miss is living in a neighborhood that actually had music stores. I haven't seen a single record store in New West.
