So having recently “met” the lovely and intriguing Ardently
after seeing her posts to Found_objects, I decided to browse
through the list of LJ users in Ottawa to see what other interest people
might be lurking about. While doing so, I found the user="record_runner"> community (which is not to be confused with the
Recordrunner user!), which is about/from the local
independent record store, Record

I managed to get myself down to their store today, and I’m a happy
camper. Of course, everyone else in Ottawa probably already knows
about this place, but I didn’t until now, and I’ve been passively
looking for a decent indie record shop. (CD Warehouse is OK, but they’re
a bit mainstream for me.) So yay, happy me, new place to shop. They’ve
got a great selection and cool staff who look like they’d be good at
giving recommendations, which comes in handy compared to blank
stares at HMV.

I picked up Sunny Day Real Estate’s Diary, which I’ve been
meaning to get for ages (T Substitute NOT EMO) for $10 (!),
and Sigur Ros’ () for $15, so they’ve got pretty good prices to
go along with their selection. (Fans of non-mainstream music reading
this will also note that they also have an
online store.

This all reminds me that I really need to start getting out to shows
here more often.
