have you had your dojo mojo today?

Tuesday, December 06, 2005


The long-awaited opening of the Kim's Mediatronics store was scheduled for 4:00 PM today, but sadly, as of 5:00 PM, its doors were still closed.

Does anyone know if it actually opened today? More importantly, does anyone know if Kim's will re-activate my 10-year-old account and waive the $9.99 fee?

Now all we need is a Two Boots pizza shop and a decent Korean restaurant in DoJo, and we're set!

EDIT: Disregard that last question. The $9.99 fee is waived when you register online. Get thee to Kim's!


  • Add Other Records to 2 Boots and we've got ourselves an extremely west village.

    And after you get your copy of Jaws, I think it's your duty to go check out the new cuban place, Azucar. tia.

  • You mean OTHER MUSIC, right? If I remember correctly, the founders of OM were either the old buyers for Kim's or some A&R execs from Matador.

  • Oh, and forget the Korean restaurant. I want a YAMA'S in DoJo!

  • Excuse my stoooopidity, but what the heck is YAMA?

    And yes, it's OM and yes, one of the owner was a former Kim's employee on Bleecker - Josh Mandell. He's also the drummer for the incredible band Antietam.

    I used to love the Kim's on Bleecker. Was that the first one? Never cared too much for the one on St. Marks.

  • Yama:

    49 Irving Place

    Yeah, I wasn't very fond of Mondo Kim's on St. Mark's either ... it was a bit too Virgin Megastore-esque. But that location stocked a lot of good stuff! As for the first Kim's, I always just assumed that their Bleecker location was their first.

    So, have you checked out Mediatronics yet? I'll have to stop by one of these days and pay tribute to Mr. Kim.

  • I was never a video geek and it was the music that drew me to Kim's, not the videos. I suppose I'll check out Mediatronics (I hate that name, but not as much as Mondo Kim's) once they get their shit together (which is gonna be a while coming from what I hear) and ogle their telescopes. Then I'll go smoke a BIG fat cigar at Azucar. My night time waitress' boyfriend works at Mediatronics on weekends and I'll get the real lowdown after this weekend.
