Wondering...

Do you think people who still go to Blockbuster to rent movies also still listen to music on their walkman?

I saw a Blockbuster kiosk the other day where you can rent movies for $1. I think they're finally getting it.

LOL! We just drove by a blockbuster the other day that was still open-we were amazed! :)

Maybe they are gambling that it will be out of business before it's time to return it. Then yeah! Free movie!

Either that or their Netflix isn't working and Jr. has to write a book report on The Grapes of Wrath by tomorrow.

One of our grandchildren was pretty frustrated when visiting...had a specific film he wanted to rent...no Blockbuster, no Hollywood Video....what to do?

nope. I am a diehard blockbuster fan. Downloading everything is SO I-live-in-my-parents-basement-and-don't-want-to-interact-wth-society. I do like the Redbox kiosks, though.

I think they also listen to their Walkmans while they are using their typewriters.

Lorie said...

No, but they probably crank their 2000 pound "getto-blasters", that they carry around on their shoulder. Aren't you glad those things are getting smaller?!

I was talking about a walkman not too long ago and my kids were What?? So I had to explain what it was and also what a tape was.

Um, I still go to blockbuster, but that's only because I only rent a movie about every three months and there's usually a specific one I'm looking for, and I don't want to download one because I want to watch it on my TV instead of my computer. Oh, and I DO have an iPod.

Pbbbltt!

Stefani said...

I still hit Blockbuster every so often... the reasons are too long to explain. I personally own 3 iPods and between everyone in the fam. we own 9 all together.
(I have heard Blockbuster is struggling -- I can't imagine why)

Mom of Three said...

Yeah, first there was Blockbuster, then there was Redbox, and now the is Netflix. We were slow, but we finally arrived.

Kerri said...

No Blockbuster here these day but we do hit Redbox. Cheap and quick. In fact, that's how we're spending our afternoon today if we can get the last bit of packing done - Percy Jones and the Olympians. Rachel's excited and yeah, we're just getting around to seeing it.

Jill said...

If we had a blockbuster I would be tempted to go, just to have somewhere open past 5:00

Omigosh! You must've seen my in-laws!! They are so bummed that their local video store closed and now have to rent movies from their grocery store with not as many titles. As my F-I-L REFUSES to use a credit card for Netflix their evening entertainment pool just got very VERY small. By the way - they were the ones at the store using the Big Brick Cell Phone to call home to check which movie to rent!

I had a friend who worked at Blockbuster in Provo, and he said that Blockbuster was the "it" place for single, divorced women on Friday and Saturday nights.
