Shop TIl You Bop

I received a brilliant, well-researched comment from the "LA Pawn Shop" for my post "Wassup With the Jazz Blogs? To wit:"If you need a convenient loan fast, the Los Angeles Pawn Shops is one of the best loan service provider.[sic]" Great to know I'm reaching the retail community.

The peerless Chumley
I know what you're thinking: Gee, Steve, I know you wrote about pawn shops and jazz. It's too bad you missed the chance to hop on the bandwagon of pawn shows flooding TV: Pawn Stars, Hardcore Pawn, Cajun Pawn and their inbred step-cousins, Storage Wars, Auction Kings, Antiques Roadshow, etc.

Well, as Carnak the Great might have said: "You are wrong, Stickley breath."

At this very moment, we at The Institute have several programs in development at our Burbank Jazz Video Laboratorium. Some of the titles are a bit infra, but we're above the nasty little scramble for ratings that drives our moronic competition.
