The big one on Haight St. I put a GWAR CD in the Belle and Sebastian section. I did it. And Iím sorry for it. One of the people working there was so beyond a dickhead to me. It was my feeble attempt at retaliation.
I asked a clerk a question about Ray Manzarek from the Doors. I thought I saw a poster that said he was doing an in-store. The record store guy did the eye roll, and grunted, and painstakingly answered me, ďYou mean the keyboard player from the Doors?Ē
Once I heard the intensity of his dickheaded-ness, I answered, ďNo, Ray Manzarek from GWAR.Ē Then the clerk just walked off. I was so pissed. I couldnít help it.
I am now asking for forgiveness, great God of Record Stores. I know that guy was probably having a bad day. Maybe I was the ninth person to ask him about Manzarek. Maybe Manzarek had done something terrible to him, such as crap on his forehead, I donít know. I should have let him be.
I donít know how long the GWAR stayed there in the Belle and Sebastian. But someone found it and had to deal with it, and for that, I am sorry. Perhaps itís still there.
