Mark and I positioned ourselves at different record stores on Saturday. He was at End of An Ear and I was at Waterloo Records. Although neither of us decided to get up at the crack of dawn to jump in line, we both scored the majority of what we wanted. It was really great to see the turnout at both stores. I spent over 2 hours at Waterloo shopping and waiting in line to check out. I’d never seen it so busy. Simply awesome.
