    Escape, do you know if it's actually going to be 50% off everything at Tempest. By that I mean not just records, equipment as well...

    Haha, you know that.

    Had my eye on one of those UDG bags, been lugging around a metal crate for the past 4 years. Definitely not the one.

    i shall declare a day of mourning when it closes. i think it only appropriate that we all wear black and dye our hands green, because no plastic bag has ever stained my hands as much as tempest bags did.

    very sad day though. i used to go in there every friday for an hour or two after work to pick some bits up for the parties over the weekend. in all honesty, they were the happiest times of my life*
