I WENT BACK TO TOWER RECORDS, COULDN'T GET ENOUGH TOWER RECORDS
More Things Overheard At Tower Records on East 4th Street
-This is what we know so far. You start in New York. You end up in Boston. At some point you're going to be on a secret bus.
-It gets me to Beantown, I know that much. I'm not a fucking idiot for chrissakes. But my big question is, does it come back to the Big Apple? Well goddamn. Unbelievable. A secret bus. And you read about this in a newspaper you got from a plastic box on the street? Incredible.
-Hi, do you have Beantown on DVD?
-Actually, I think Fung Wah means "secret bus."
-Oh, no thank you. I'm just looking for a CD that I can listen to on the secret bus to Beantown.
-Well I guess somebody already came through here and picked up all the copies of Beantown!
-When I get up to the window, do I say "two tickets for the secret bus," or do I say "two tickets for the secret bus" in a stereotypical Asian accent? I just really don't want to fuck this one up.
-There are bathrooms on the bus.
The VV's secret bus revelation is almost as bad as when, this past spring, I was shot down on a pitch about the McCarren Pool. I guess the NYT now routinely scoops the VV on bohemian NY. I miss it; all the buses in Little Rock are inescapably public.Post a Comment
