Ever go to a store and it's never open?

I've been to this pawn shop 5 times already and it's never open.. :doh: I look in the window and they have hundreds of c.d.s i want to look through. I tried calling them, left messages. I even went to their other store and the guy says they're open. I'm about to throw a brick through the window. The only thing stopping me is the courthouse across the street.. :2up:

When this pawn shop is closed there doesn't happen to be a chopper parked out front with the name "Grace" painted on the gas tank? If so that means Zed's inside and I would stay far, far away from that place. :lol:

I pass a small strip mall on my way to work everyday, one day I noticed a empty store was filled up with all types of stuff. Cd's, records, promo posters all types of rock related things and other junk. After a few months, still filled but no signs of a store opening or anything. So, one day on my lunch I drove and asked the other store owners about the store and no one knew anything about it. At least two years went by with no actively, then about a month as I drove by, the place was empty. I wonder what treasures were in there?

Same thing here, thrift/pawn type of store, always closed every time I pass. I can clearly see several hundred CDs on a shelf in the far corner. Just recently passed by, store empty and gone :lame:

The last couple of times I've tried to hit the local "cool" record store in my area (Sound Exchange in Wayne, NJ) I've gotten skunked. Once I stopped by and they were closed cuz there'd been a power failure in the area so the entire strip mall was dark.

 

The next time there had been severe thunderstorms the day before and the road the mall is on was closed due to flooding.

 

Someone's trying to keep me away from there!!!!

That is so true! But it's so disappointing when your expectations are mercilessly dashed on the jagged rocks of disappointment.

 

Although I'm not sure there are CD's in there are a few places like that around here, one in particular that has all this old junky furniture in the window, mirrors, chairs e.t.c. but in 10 years I've NEVER seen it open. I pass it all the time on my bike and it's in a really odd out of the way place for a shop. I wonder if the owner just stores stuff in it...I've Never even see the items in the window change I don't think...really dusty. Maybe it's a Stephen King story just waiting to happen.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
