I haven't set foot in a Hot Topic in years. It's basically teeny-bopper heaven pretending to be some sort of counter-culture place (even though the name announces that it isn't counter culture).

I can't stand that place.

They used to have some nice retro gaming styled clothes, but the shipping costs to ship up here to Canada were insane so I never ordered anything. Just checked their site and it looks like all the gaming stuff is gone. Bah.

If Toronto doesn't have one, I doubt the rest of Canada would.

I usually would only go in to see if there's anything interesting that I wouldn't mind spending my money on....usually it's a no. Personally I don't take that much of a liking to the store in general because it contributes to generating poser goths and teenagers who try to be "different."

It's kind of the Linkin' Park of stores... at least around here. I mean that in the sense that it tries to commercially manufacture a "hard rock/rebel/punk" image with vintage concert T-shirts, etc. The merchandise isn't bad (fairly high quality), it's just that it feels so... fake. (It'd probably qualify as "emo" around here, which would distinguish it from Goths and preppies)
