Charlie Zaillian - Seattle Times

I went to a Record Store Showdown last night at the EMP (Experience Music Project) in Seattle. Greg Vandy from KEXP had a steady stream of quiz questions to teams from four record stores in Seattle and there were only two or three questions in 20 minutes of questions that went unanswered... Go get your vinyl on this weekend and quiz the guy/gal behind the counter. I bet you'll be impressed.

The choices for personal transformation have definitely gotten more interesting ;)
