Does anyone else think it’s weird how there are no video tapes or dvds anymore? Okay, I know there are still dvds and blue rays but who needs them? They won’t be around for much longer.
It was such a very specific point in time with Blockbusters and vcrs, which, in case you were wondering, my iPhone doesn’t even know what a vcr is. It keeps wanting to autocorrect it to vice or var. what the fuck is a var? Now both times that I’ve typed the word var it wants to change it to car. Okay, dummy, it was your suggestion.
It’s like we are trying to wipe the memory of video rentals off the earth but that can’t be true. They keep remaking all the movies from that time period and bringing back the tv shows. That’s probably because only old people watch tv anymore.
Also bookstores kind of don’t need to exsist anymore. It was only a handful of years ago that a good Saturday outing would be spending time in a store looking at all the books and movies and cds. Now if I want to look at any of those things, I’ll just look down at my hand, where my phone always is.
Remember all that money you wasted because you had to have that movie or tv box set? Sure, you didn’t feel like watching it now but later you will be glad that you have it. Wrong. Now all that stuff has became completely irrelevant because everything you want to watch or listen to is already in your hands. I try not to think about it. I sold all my dvds and cds to a used book store. I spent thousands on that shit over the years. I got back around $45. What are you going to do?
