I've been thinking stuff like this for the last couple of years. You follow the trend line and logically think that it's nearly the end, but somehow the thing manages to stay alive.

It doesn't look...

1. Star Trek: The Next Generation - Both DS9 and Voyager are better (yeah. Voyager. You heard me.), but TNG has the distinction of being the show I grew up on. I am one of the legions of people who...

Also, it's pretty ridiculous to say that vinyl records are "not going anywhere fast." Technically, yes, they're still around, and a certain subset of audiophiles enjoy them. But they're not how...

Whatever you do, don't criticize BBV in your interview. I learned that prospective employers don't appreciate when you bad-mouth previous ones :p

I would give credits to our smattering of "famous" people without telling them. In particular we had one of the guys who was on the 1991 World Series team and I let him run the place.

Of course, I...

The truth:

I never worked for Blockbuster. I am an actor named Robert Iler. I was on a television series where my character was supposed to get a job at BBV, so I researched it and wound up here....

It does look pretty cool. Whoever took that picture did a perfect job of capturing the look of a Blockbuster on a Friday night.

That's just weird, because that element of it was leaked very early on, the trailer was in the style of the Alien trailer, and it was pretty much the focus of a lot of the marketing campaign. I know...

Nobody here even mentioned last week's kerfuffle in which Dish almost lost the BIG FOUR networks in over a dozen cities.
