生平事迹 #4 ~ Tunz Muzic

Long before my thrifting escapades, back in the day I used to visit the music shops and just browse to see what was out there, i lived in the country and spent most of my time at my aunt’s place, all they had out there was Gospel and Southern Soul, which was cool but after discovering cable tv and a channel called MTV at a friend’s house, everything changed when I knew there was other stuff out there…

 I usually stayed away from the big chains Sam Goody was cool but it had gone really mainstream in its later years, so I stayed with the locals, one of those local places was Tunz Muzic, at it’s core it was a electronics store, they did phone and camera repairs, but for me it was heaven, thing about the local shops I found was they were more friendly, never any pressure to buy anything or get out kinda vibe, I think that’s what kept me going back…

I learned a lot there, the owners genuinely had a love for music as some were producers themselves, I knew most of the heavy hitters at the time but it wasn’t until going there I was able to gain a bird’s eye view of the local underground club scene…

The good NBA JAM cabinet, many a night I spent dropping quarters into that thing listening to live mixes…

This was the listening booth, another perk of going local was that they had a try before you buy, really opened my mind to samples, blends, breaks and whatnot…

Like all good things tho they eventually end, music just doesn’t sell the way it used too, and from that Tunz Muzic was gone, but not entirely I guess I still have all the stuff I got there even the promo mixes from the free box, its in the dungeon somewhere, and I have the memories too lol, that I think is worth more than anything really…

生平事迹 #3 ~ Give & Take

I don’t condone selfishness if it were up to me we would all love and care for one another the same unconditionally, that way in a sense there would never have a need to be met…

So what would you do? What if you do it and they dont keep there word? Does it end the friendship? What if you decide not to do it? Should that end it on there part? What is the true measure of a friend?

So many possibilities so many decisions, I’ll spare the details of what I did, but what I wonder is at what point does give and take come into play…

Reminds me a lot of…. Let’s call her Lucy, she always used to mention that nothing should ever be given with the exception of receiving back, for what it’s worth it sounds real nice and it has meaning, but what does does it say about the person if they never give in the way they were gave to? I always followed the idea of treat others the way you wanna be treated, but what does it mean if it never met equally?

I really don’t know or have the answer, I’ve only ever been on the other side of the fence, just something to think about really food for thought if nothing else…

I know I said I’d spare the details of what I did and I’ll keep my word on that for those involved and myself, but what I will say for those in similar situations or those who wonder the same, if you should ever feel unsure or if at any point you ever have to question the the motive of the person asking, its never worth it really, walk away it’s less stressful in the long run, life is all about give and take, but at some point only so much can be given afterall, if not what does it become then…
