Sorry about the title- you probably expectd a shot of a building coming down. In the "old days", the method for purchasing music was on a round object made from petroleum products, came in a package about a foot across and could not be "downloaded" anywhere since Al Gore had not invented the internet yet. In the 1980, a new method of storing music was created which involved putting a piece of foil between two pieces of plastic and punching lots of holes in it that would create the music (like a micro pucnch card). A chain of stores known as "Tower" was one of the biggest places to find such musical media. With their large selection, they were Amazon before there was Amazon. You could not shop at home but you could usually find what you wanted if you went there.
Then came the internet. Men invented it in part so that they could get free music and pron without the embarassment of going into shops. They could sit around in their underwear and shop or do whatever they wanted without having to get off their butts. That was not good for places like Tower which required shoppers to get off said butts and go to the store. So now Tower has had enough and said that if people won't get off their duffs and buy music carriers at their shop, they won't sell music to them and are closing down. The chain was sold to a liquidator and they are progressively lowering prices trying to get rid of all their inventory. In this picture, the sun is setting (in more ways than one) on Tower Records in the Sports Arena area of San Diego.
