My mom randomly decided to go to California to eat and do some shopping, and she let my sister and I go shopping in a really cheap Asian mall or whatever, but I was cool with it because there was so much shit I wanted. I ended up buying a Tare Panda plushie, and a couple of Domo keychains.
BUT ANYWAY, THAT’S NOT THE POINT HERE. As I went to go buy my stuff, I noticed a stack of CD’s and saw David Guetta, Kaskade, and Tiesto, and I’m like oh shit, they have EDM CDs at an Asian store? Fuck yes. So I was browsing through the selection, and LO AND BEHOLD, THE GLORY THAT WAS SET BEFORE MY EYES:
AN 80 MINUTE LONG COMPILATION OF HARDSTYLE AND JUMP. I wanted to cry tbh. A store filled with a bunch of Pokemon, Domo, Totoro, kawaii shit, etc. had something I treasured the most, and the fact that two of my favorite EDM genres were compiled together made me want to smack down all of my $100 and say KEEP THE FUCKING CHANGE.
Alas, I was not able to buy it. Before I could even consider buying it, my mom was yelling at me to get out of the store because were in that tiny little shop for like 30+ minutes, and my sister was nagging me that I could listen to all the songs on Youtube if I wanted to.
I DON’T THINK SHE UNDERSTANDS THE JOY OF POSSESSING PHYSICAL MATERIAL OF SOMETHING YOU LOVE.
