Buying, Selling and Culling the Herd

February 23, 2015

T hirty years ago I learned a valuable lesson about presenting something to the public. The man who was in charge of programming the group of television stations I worked for said that the biggest mistake a programmer could make was catering to his own tastes. “It’s easy to dismiss a program that you’d never watch. But that doesn’t mean others won’t want to. You may be surprised what’s a hit with the public but your job is to find it.”

Self PortraitSince taking over the Ricochet Store I’ve found those words to be more true than at any other time in my life. Things that I thought would “sell like hotcakes” have mold growing on them. This store is supposed to offer things that reflect your tastes, not just mine.

So I want to hear from you. And loudly. Tell me what you like, tell me what sucks, tell me what works and tell me what doesn’t.

And this is the place to do it. Before anything hits the store you can see what’s leaking out of my mind and spilling all over Photoshop.

Only you can pick the hits and stop random and senseless acts of retail. New stuff is posted below. Have at it.
