Blockbuster Closing

It’s the end of an era: Blockbuster announced it’s closing their remaining stores. Personally, I preferred Hollywood Video. Remember those? Anybody? Anybody?

Someday you will tell your grandchildren about how you had to rent these disks to see movies, from physical stores. Then you had to drive back and return them in a few days. And sometimes, you even used paper money to pay for them.

I didn't know about this! Crazy! Remember how that used to be a date night in high school? You'd go to Blockbuster and see everyone else on their dates and try to get the New Releases before they did? End of an era is right, Mark.

The ones in my city (Canada) closed a few years ago. I didn't realize the company was still around.
