Brendan Toller’s documentary mixes interviews and animation to explain the death of the independent record store. Scott Adams comments on the eulogy.

Tom “Tearaway” Schulte whips up an Outsight deluge, complete with analysis of Nick Drake, the Cramps, Betty Blowtorch, Captain Beefheart, Noam Chomsky and der Crue.
Noam Chomsky’s name is bound to raise hackles on the right and tears of joy on the left. His actual views aren’t as easy to pigeonhole, as James Mann attests.
