#88: Why You Should Contribute To Music Millennium’s Kickstarter Campaign


They need a new roof, for starters.
But more importantly,
if you are serious about music
and if you care about the industry
that has brought all of this delight
for so many decades, longer than
many of us have been alive,
and if you’re worried about
independent record stores
being squished by big boxes
and cheap and free downloads
and the new idiot box called
youtube, and if you’re like me,
and love to make a kind of ritual
of your music purchases,
love the smell of incense,
the nostalgia of classic candy
and the guilty pleasure of
an Alice Cooper lunch box
or the jigsaw puzzle version
of The Beatles’ White Album,
and if you love the heft in your hands
of 180 gram vinyl, black,
translucent, red or yellow,
and if you love the idea of all
of this coupled with a glass
of your favorite something,
the musical and alcoholic
version of the bookstore cafe,
then you need to contribute
to the Music Millennium kickstarter campaign.
