    I was just whopping for Black Friday this morning and I noticed something that just annoys me as an Avid Record-Buyer and consumer of purchasing my music. 

    The amout of peope snatching up DVD’s and BLue-Ray’s today between $5-15 a piece was crazzy and the average person would walk out the store with a STACK of movies and the like.

    Wal-Mart had a whole section of cheap albums ($6.00) and some were NEW releases by people like Lady Antebellum, Britney Spears, Daughtry, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Beyonce, and others. I hardy saw anyone paying any attention to them, let alone buying them. It’s just frustrating knowing how bad album sales are and I wish people would give Records the same prominence as other media. Maybe it’s the fault of record compaines. I was just wondering how cheap CD’s have to be to get people to grab them like they do the DVD’s. Also, I never buy movies because I usually see it once and I am good, but I can listen to music over and over and love it 5 years later. 

    Just wanted to get y’alls opinion on if you have noticed this and why you think it is. I wish there was a way to fix it, so more artists could be discovered.

    Look at outlets like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. Heck, there’s evern Frost Wire, Lime Wire, Mediafire, and an assortment of torrents out there. I can have any music I want, and I don’t have to spend a cent. There’s nothing quite like holding a physical copy of your favorite albums. Being able to play The Moon and Antarctica through a CD player is a great feeling. People, however, are becoming pragmatists. It’s much easier both to have and to attain a digital copy of music than of a movie or television show.
