What Are Records??

This sign, hanging above an abandoned store in Providence, Rhode Island, caught my eye this week.
It had to have been two guys who got together one afternoon after downing a forty and had this conversation:
"Yo. You know what we need in this hood? A record store."
"No shit, brother. And we could use a beauty salon, too."
"Yo!  You know what we should do??"


"Yo, check out this shit," spreading his hands in a sweeping motion towards the sky, as if envisioning what the sign might look like. "We should put them together. In one place. We can call it Kauzin Rukiz: Records and Beauty Salon."

"Man, that is such a dope idea."

"I know. There ain't anything like that around. I sho' know I ain't ever seen it!"

"Yeah, and we should put like, a brother in cool braids on the sign, checkin' out a fly sista."

"Oh man, you got it goin' on. Then the dudes'll come in for the latest jams while the ladies are gettin' their hair done. It'd be a slick way of getting them both together."

"Let's do it!"

Do you think the record store went out of business first or was it the beauty salon that brought the whole thing crashing down around them?

Reminds me of Wayne's Shoes and Cheese in Smithville, TN


Nursing Uniforms and Tanning Beds in Jamestown, TN

Somehow, I'm thinkin' it's the guys that have the money and the women just say, "Whatever you want, long as I get my beauty salon!"
