Driving to and from lunch today, we noticed something going on at the old Tower Records location on Lemmon Avenue. You might remember it going out of business about a year and a half ago?

Anyway, there were people there today! Doing stuff, too! OK, they were construction workers, mind you, and it looked like they were there to do some wrecking.

It'd be tough to really call a spot in which you were charged a good five bucks over the going rate for a CD a "paradise," but what're the odds this location gets turned into a parking lot? 10 to 1? 4 to 1?

I'll set the odds of Joni Mitchell showing up for the ribbon-cutting ceremony of whatever it becomes at 10,000,000 to 1...and I'll even consider honoring that. -- Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
