The reason I love it

It all started way back in my younger years, I was going to school in the middle of cornfields out in the Midwest. The small town I was living in had an amazing music scene, it was awesome, there were shows every night of the week ranging from new bands, old bands, cover bands, local bands and that one guy that can play the mouth harp awkwardly well. One day it all just stopped, the local venue booking company had just decided to close its doors. It devastated all of the venues there and most of them were forced to shut down. One of the venues I had visited most often usually for the weekend shows was one that was forced to close. A few weeks had gone by and the place was sitting vacant, then one day out of the blue a record shop showed up. That town had an interesting way of keeping the music culture around despite the recent happenings. I was strolling by and decided to stop in, the owner was still unpacking the remaining crates of records, and I had stumbled across the Eagles album. Believe it or not I was actually listening to the Eagles earlier in the day on Pandora, so I figured I would pick that one up to add to my collection.

Later that day crop circles started appearing in the nearby cornfields and the town went crazy. While everyone began to stock up on canned goods, pitchforks, and tinfoil hats I was at home relaxing on my couch rocking out to my favorite Eagles tunes.
