GETTING MORE TALE #640: Getting More Tale
At the conclusion of Record Store Tales (Part 320) I remember thinking “That was fun but I could have written another 320 chapters about the shit that went down there.”
As the sequel series Getting More Tale evolved, I expanded and incorporated a lot of Record Store stories into it. This allowed me to explore some backstory elements that I really should have included in the original Record Store Tales. As time went on and I found my groove, Getting More Tale became a little bit less about music and retail, and a little bit more about me. Thankfully you have hung on for the ride despite my indulgences.
Here we are at #640, the point at which Getting More Tale and Record Store Tales are of equal size.
It’s a potential crossroads. Should I shut down Getting More Tale and that numbering system? Music will remain the primary focus, but could the chapter numbers be a turn off to new readers? Or do they entice people to go back? Should I come up with a new name for this? Getting More Tale became a catch-all for virtually anything I wrote that wasn’t a review.
I put it to you. If you’ve been reading along, you know what I write.

1. Should I shut down Getting More Tale & the numbering system and re-launch as something new?
2. No! Keep everything the same and carry on.
