    Righteous Indie-nation

    | Los Angeles, CA, USA | Uncategorized

    (A customer walks over to the first aisle and taps each and every last CD case with his finger while saying either ‘mainstream’ or ‘sell-out’. He proceeds to do this with every single CD in the store, which takes him about 25 minutes. He then walks up to the counter.)

    Customer: “What a bunch of mainstreamers you guys are! Don’t you have anything more obscure?”

    Me: “We do have a pretty large indie section, which you seemed to have skimmed over.”

    Customer: “You call those indie? I’ve heard of every single one of them. They’re all sell-outs.”

    Me: “So, what is it that you’re looking for?”

    Customer: “How the h*** should I know? If I’ve already heard of it, I wouldn’t buy it.”

    (I really like Japanese animation and am learning Japanese as a second language so I listen to a lot of Japanese songs.)

    Customer: “Excuse me, what kind of music would you recommend? I want to know what CD I should buy.”

    Me: “Oh, I don’t think I listen to the kind of music you’d be interested in.”

    Customer: “That’s not very helpful. Just tell me what kind of music you like.”

    Me: “Well, I listen to a lot of Japanese songs.”

    Customer: “I love that song!”

    Me: “It’s not just one song. There are a lot of songs in Japanese.”

    Customer: “Really? How many.”

    Me: “Oh, far too many to count. There are thousands!”

    Customer: “Well that’s a bit silly, isn’t it, what’s the point in making songs in a language that no one can understand?”

    Me: “A lot of people understand Japanese.”

    Customer: “Like who?”

    Me: “The people who live in Japan?”

    Customer: “You mean Japan’s a real place?! Well, you learn something new every day!”

    Customer: “Do you have [popular album]?”

    Me: “Yep. It’s right over here.”

    Customer: “That’s expensive.”

    Me: “That’s pretty average”

    Customer: “I bet [competitor] is cheaper.”

    Me: “I doubt it. We are usually a fair bit cheaper than them.”

    Customer: “I don’t know. I bet they are cheaper.”

    Me: “I don’t think they will be, but they are right upstairs if you want to take a peek and come back.  You will see that we are cheaper.”

    (The customer leaves and comes back 15 minutes later with our competitors bag.)

    Me: “Oh, were they cheaper?”

    Customer: “No, they were a lot more expensive. You should really stop recommending that place.”
