Re: “How will my kids ever learn about late fees and rental protection?

I admit that I used to love wandering around "Wherehouse Video" in Southern California while growing up. I remember being so excited to find a copy of Back to the Future, only to discover that it was actually a Beta copy and not VHS! Later on though I was disgusted when in the '90s, suddenly Wherehouse, Blockbuster, and Hollywood started charging $2.99 for a rental when they previously charged $1.50. I think that if those video chains didn't get so greedy, they may have had a chance once new players popped up on the scene such as netflix and Redbox. Personally, I love netflix and I applaud Redbox for charging less for brand new releases. The only thing I don't appreciate about netflix is that they like to try to hide new releases from the public by not showcasing them on their site. To find new releases, I always go to Blockbuster.com, write down what has just come out, and then stockpile it onto my netflix queue. I also love streaming movies and shows so that my kids don't get bombarded with commercials from regular television. Yes, the video stores will always have a special place in my heart but I am willing to say goodbye and file them away in my memories next to the Beta cassettes. By the way Lindsey, it was great seeing you and your family on the hike today! I have your blog listed on my blog list right next to Finslippy and Dooce. Thanks for making my days a bit better with your postings. (Glowplanet.blogspot.com)
