I Miss Blockbuster

                                            (Closed and now a mega-wigs and weave store) 
           A year or so ago Blockbuster began closing close to 960 stores nationwide, this included every location in the city I live in. As Blockbuster shut its doors, I relied more and more on Redbox which appears on every corner, every gas station, Wal-mart and drug stores. It was sad but Blockbuster was hard to miss. It was not until I need a Molly Ringwald fix and wanted to watch Sixteen Candles. Nothing simplifies life and touches me deep down like teen movies of the 80s. At times watching Legally Blonde would suffice but this time I needed the real deal. I looked up Redbox.com and searched for Sixteen Candles and it was not...in....any...locations...near...me.


Excuse me. But what the hell was I supposed to do?

          I never thought about how much I would miss Blockbuster. Netflix is not a suitable alternative, it requires commitment. I had the urge to watch The NeverEnding Story the other day and I did NOT want to fill out a form, give my credit card information and take on the burden of remembering to cancel my subscription the next month just to do so.

As much as I love the convenience of Redbox and $1 rentals...it's seemed to cost us so much more.
