Seriously, what?

Sadness and surprise as Daddy’s Junky Music closes its doors for good - The Boston Globe

DAMN, man, the thousands of dollars I spent there back in the home-synthesizer-studio days, and the millions of eyeball-dollars I spent on gear I couldn't afford... They had a fantastic synth room in the back, with all kinds of stuff set up and playable. I remember the total weirdness of the Arp Chroma's tactile feedback control panel, all the drum machines, any number of Oberheims and Yamahas and Ensoniqs and the occasional Casio (I love me some CZ-series synthesizers) and just on and on and on. And for a couple of delightful years they had an as-is department in the basement, full of all the stuff they didn't want to bother to repair, or that was too weird or too hacked-up or too broken to sell to anyone but what I will euphemistically refer to as "enthusiasts." You know, like me. Happy hours digging through busted-up gear and hoping for the magical appearance of something cool and functional enough to be worth hauling home...

Man. That's the end of an era.
