RIP Circuit City

Circuit City comes down to a close for the final time. It's not my favorite store, but I did get somethings there that are important to me. Probably the biggest memory I have of the store is getting the Playstation 2 Grand Turismo 3 pack as a kid. I remember saving my money up for two years to only be able to afford half of the $300. Luckily my brother chipped in some money as well as my parents. Now that I have a job, I can afford all the systems out. Saving up for the system and finally getting it felt amazing as a kid.

I also got in the clearance bin(for only $15.99) Phoenix Wright. Which at the time was a buy that I wasn't sure if I was going to be happy with. I heard of it from the whole Internet fad of Phoenix Wright yelling OBJECTION! So I decided to pick it up and try it. It turned out to be one of my all time favorite games and I love the series.

Also Circuit City is where my headset came from. I originally bought it and had it for a year until it broke. Which was my fault 100% and not to be blamed on the headset. What happened was I had a sandwich. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich to be exact. I was being stupid and eating with the mic recorder out(The microphone can slide in and out) and I got peanut butter on the microphone. So being stupid, I cleaned off the microphone with water. Sadly the microphone and water do not have the best friendship. I went out to Circuit City and bought the same exact one the next day. During the out of business sale I went and checked to see if they had it. Sadly they did not and I will have to buy it from a different place. Which sucks because Circuit City was selling them at $20 while everywhere else has them at $40.

I did pick up somethings while they were having the sale.

  • Best of Santana
  • Weezer - Red Album
  • Primus - They Can't All Be Zingers (Greatest hits album)
  • Cheap Trick - Heaven Tonight
  • Michael Jackson - Number Ones (Greatest hits album)
  • Scars on Broadway - Scars on Broadway
  • Slayer - Christ Illusion
  • Yes - Extended Versions (Live Album)
  • Rambo 4
Game Accesories:
  • DDR Dance Pad
The CDs I bought were because they were on sale and I had heard of them. So I wanted to check them out and some of the CDs were pretty good while some were not. The Greatest Santana Hits album didn't even have Black Magic Woman on it???
