Re: “Larry Glass Bids Farewell to The Works

A Humboldt county tradition! I bought my first album there in the fall of 1977 ("Fotheringay" - I still have it!), and many other records, tapes, CD's and DVD's throughout the years. I've always appreciated having such a great store over the years, so thank you for perservering Larry!

It's great news that Bandon will carry on, in a time when owning a record store is almost certainly some kind of economic suicide. At this point in time, any owner has to be smart and savvy about what sells and what doesn't, and I wish Bandon the best of luck moving forward.

In general, the Works has suffered in recent years, mostly due to lack of knowledge by many of the folks working there. The internet has seemed more important to the clerks than any customer that they might service! I've been constantly frustrated that they almost never have had any of the new or recent releases that I came in to buy, and not very accomodating in ordering those items when I asked about them. Can't survive very long with those sort of business practices. I hope that the future employees will endeavour to be better at all of those things.

Long live The Works, and all record stores!

Re: “Dairy Diary

Really? You don't have anything better to do with your precious time than organizing a boycott against a local company? Yes, they were bought by another, larger company, but as CW pointed out, everyone that works there is LOCAL. Cypress Gove was started here, and has grown here. The fact that it's now owned by Emmi changes very little. They are a huge asset to the community. As Cancer also noted, do you boycott all products that are ultimatley owned by a larger corporate entity? Do you buy GASOLINE? If you do, you are a hypocrite, and thus, your arguments are largely specious and invalid.

Re: “Couple Arrested for Attempted Burglary

Gotta love those folks with random graffitti all over their necks and upper torsos...

Re: “Arcata Plaza New Year's Eve: Meh

Well Rudi, you can bet that Halloween will not go "down" next year, judging by the success of this. And I'm fine with that. Wrestling with percussionists on the Plaza? Not so much...
