Portrait of a record store shitter


The Pure Pop bathroom is probably the oldest john in Burlington, possibly the united states. Our toilet is off limits to customers for there own safety, when you sit down on the seat, it makes a subtle "squishing " sound from somewhere around the base. If you notice, from the pictures and flyers hanging up, some from the 90's, we don't clean the bathroom very ofter, re: Ever. Enjoy.

That brings back memories. Thanks for documenting one of the most storied washrooms in New England.

I can only hope that MY calcified offal has contributed to the Pure Pop shitter's already rich heritage.

Thanks Tanner, when I think of enjoyable and at the same time informative blog posts...well, this is what I live for. The bathroom at Amoeba had several promotional posters, mostly featuring albums from way beyond the initial opening date of the store, ie - Fear of Music. They were all tagged in sharpie so that the main players in the poster were mustached and wearing glasses that matched a co-worker Pittman, and every slogan was changed to include the word Pittman.

As gross and hazardous as the bathroom is, I think that true danger and death lurk in that scary storage room. It seems possible that the CDC will show up there some day to investigate a medical mystery known as "Pure Pop Lung".

I agree with that one Molly...

Ben, we should star a record store bathroom blog, and just get submissions from all the different stores around the world.

thanks for confirming my nagging anxiety that no one notices when I clean the bathroom. i will never do it again.

faith you're rearranging the chairs on the titanic, it's a noble effort, but an empty gesture none the less.

Yes, Tanner, we must! It would be the most entertaining commentary on the state of pop culture from the cleverest people alive.
