    Back in August, i went to the 9/11 memorial museum over here in NYC and in one part of the museum where you can view found items left by those who had perished i found someone's old mostly burnt Blockbuster card over there.

    I think the earliest memory I have is from a goddamn block buster. The fondest one to, renting a movie with my dad back in simpler times.
    I live 2 hours away from the last blockbuster.

    I have a pilgrimage to go on.

    im not gonna look for it now, but i still have the last vhs tape i ever rented from there... "SLC punk" starring mathew lilliard... i hate movies that constantly break the fourth wall (ferris bueller style) but i still have it in a closet for some reason...
    another great example is kodak - kodak invented the digital camera, and then doubled down on film...
    but the best brick and mortar/cyber fail paradigm was montgomery wards - they were the only game in town for mail order products in america for over a goddamned century - you could order whole houses and cars and shit through their catalog - but they were spending money on their mall stores when they could've been transforming those catalogs into a website for a fraction of the cost - they could've been Amazon...

    Might just be one of those self conjured memory deals but i vaguely remember Blockbuster also trying to compete with Redbox for a little bit. I swear as a kid i saw a machine at a store that looked like a Redbox but was Blockbuster branded. I say it might be self conjured tho bc i kept expecting you to bring it up and you didnt.

    I think GameStop is losing money is because they don’t wanna pay a littl extra for return games and people would rather get the game online cheaper or from another place who would give more like independently ran game shops

    I never did the research, I just always assumed Redbox was the killer of block buster.
    I remember after Redbox started and got popular seeing Blue box? Wasnt that owned by Block Buster? Another example of them trying to copy cat an idea too late.

    i really liked netflix back in the day
    in 2004 or 2005 i dont remember really well, we stopped going to blockbuster forever and never went back because of netflix
    my dad and mom got 2 dvd's in the mail at a time and me and my sister got 2 dvds in the mail, so i just added games to the list for my dvd
    it was pretty sweet

  • The Hype

    I hated Blockbuster. It's the reason why my local video store, "Downtown News amd Video" closed down (Rip Downtown News and Video 1986-2003). Blockbuster felt so artificial and emotionless for a video store. I don't really see why people miss Blockbuster so much, since there still are a few local video stores left (as little as there are). So it's not like when Blockbuster died, that every video store died.

    I think an extremely wealthy person should try and bring it back, that would be the top story on the internet. No doubt in my mind.
