HMV Megastore, originally uploaded by Jeffery Simpson.

I like the fact that the HMV is open until 1 am on Monday (or Tuesday I suppose) in order to let you buy the new CD or DVD release early. I also hate the fact that it’s an HMV that’s doing it, since HMV is almost always $5 more than Future Shop or A&B Sound.

Also my desire to wander around Robson Street at 1 am to buy a new CD isn’t as strong as it once was now that I can get it all from the comfort of my bedroom from the iTunes store.

    Stupid corportate bastards charging 5 bucks more. But its funny cause I can often buy a cd cheaper here the first day it comes out than at the local Wal-Mart, whats up with that?

    What’s worse… paying five dollars more and taking advantage of a service found no where else in Vancouver or paying five dollars less and being part of the epidemic that is lowering the global bottom line so eventually no one but Walmart will be in business.
