      I actually have one store by my house called star video, which is the exact same thing as blockbuster but with more modern DVDs and videogames, now that I look at it I think it used to be a blockbuster
      Anyway great video, and great animation

    That single Blockbuster location in Oregon is probably a tourist attraction at this point

    I mean, chances are Enron would have scammed them out the ass so I don't think the deal was _that_ good

    For those who don't know, Enron was found to have manipulated accounting documents to make it seem like their growth was massive when in reality they provided no services at all.

    I can only assume that's "Sex and the City", but damn is that some clever marketing. From a distance all you see is a bright green case that reads "SEX"

    In Canada, we didnt have Blockbuster. But, we did have the same kind of store made by Videotron. As a kid, I used to go to these stores all the time, I probably rented about 30 games on the wii and more than 50 movies there. Seeing all these locations getting shut down was, to some extent, understanding but also very saddening since I went there so many times. But, at least we still have the memories and I'll be able to tell my grandkids about them.

    Every Friday or Saturday night, my mother, sometimes my father, and I would go to the local Blockbuster (or Hollywood Videos) and we'd pick out a few movies. I would gaze wistfully at the video games, and we'd have fun going around and picking out movies. I look at where the Blockbuster used to be (now a Mexican restaurant), and I think about it now and then.

    What about instead of late fees you had a once in a lifetime membership entry fee that covers the cost of two average movies and limits your rentals to two at a time. Want another one? Then return one or upgrade you membership. You could also have some sort of loyalty program where a cut of the profits they make from you pile up to cover another movie after some time. If they never return the movie they have basicly bought it from you.

    If you had checked out something and they went out of business before the return date you could keep it
