                    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 remember there being a Blockbuster somewhere close to me.
                      Now it's gone.

                            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.

                              There was actually two Blockbusters near each other where I live. One shut down before the other.

"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...

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 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.
