I'm surprised they lasted so long. I haven't been to one since the early 90's.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
Making it a BB night mattered 5 years ago and you were on your game if you kept up with the latest releases. Not to mention looking at the eye candy in the drama aisle. There were some benefits....BB made you feel good about yourself IMO.
Good riddance to bad rubbish.
I can't say I'm sad to see them go. they were a prime example of what's wrong with corporate America. They didn't think forward like Redbox or Netflix and as a result spent a good amount of coin lobbying to make sure they had a street date for new releases 1-2 weeks in front of the other two. Really pissed me off.
I did have a friend that owned a mom and pop video store. Store shut its doors 6 months after Family Video (I'm guessing regional small cap version of Blockbuster)moved into town.
Browsing the selections and watching some really good movies I wouldn't have even thought of watching had it not been for the interaction at the store with fellow patrons and friends.
Oh well, thus must give way to progress...
