Recycle Shop

In this picture two things are happening. One is, I am thrilled to have found two recycle shops (Japanese-English for second-hand stores) within 100 meters of each other on Highway 20, where I have never ventured before. At the same time, I am panicking and ready to bolt headlong from the store because I just realized the song I'm hearing on the loudspeaker is Avril Lavigne...and in her song, she has just treated the four-syllable word "actually" like a two-syllable word not writable in the Roman alphabet.

Speaking of unwritable words, how do you spell that sound people make when they imitate a "sorry, that's incorrect" buzzer on a quiz show? Something like, "AAARRRRRNNHHH!!!"
