The Best of 'Overheard at the Record Store'

Selections from the hit semiregular feature at houseofcat.net


"Dude, the new Whitesnake kicks ass. It seriously kicks ass, bro."


"Sir, I know what a train is. Please stop."


"I smoke outside. I don't care about my lungs but I don't want to ruin my records."


"Where's your jazz section?"

"Over here. What are you looking for?"

"Sheryl Crow."

"Um—Sheryl Crow isn't jazz."

"Well, she's what I call jazz."


"You don't know Led Zeppelin?"

"No, I don't know too many bands from the olden days."


"Dude, how do you fall off a beach cruiser?"


"First Burning Man, then Symbiosis, then Earthdance. By the time he gets finished he's going to have one brain cell left."


"Well, I do live in a van with six dudes, but other than that everything's cool."


"Is this skipping or does it just suck?"


"I need a basket for my bike that's big enough to hold a cake, because that's what I usually carry."


"I just had a conversation about Citizen Kane with a 13-year-old. My faith in humanity is restored."
