Blockbuster

This post is in memory of Blockbuster Video, the now defunct company which provided all of us with hours of tense, comedic, dramatic entertainment (Ed. note: Who could ever forget the eminently forgettable 147 minutes of Paris, Texas which, thankfully, was only available at the theatres for a short time, but lived on as a video you could sleep to) throughout the 1980s,  1990s and into the 21st century. Although it is gone, it is not forgotten (at least for now) (Ed. note: Blockbuster that is – not Paris Texas)

Our first video presentation is a small budget production which took one day to film and four days to edit (mostly due to infected software). Please understand that:

  1. The central character is the same one throughout – from Part Two through Part Four,
  2. If I can watch it real life, it should be fine for all of you, and
  3. Tim refers to “baloney sandwiches”

(Ed. note: Terry was a little confused – she didn’t realize the bird in Part Two was the one we ate).

Video two was also shot in one day on a minimum budget. Most of it is self explanatory but regarding the final scene, I had 12 10″ x 15″ documents copied in full colour, both sides, laminated twice – before and after being cut to size, for the magnificent sum of $15.00.

Remember these?

Remember this is basically Saturday morning - not Friday night! The white shoe in the corner is what her friend was wearing. More sensible, but far less interesting!

    Hold on there cowboy! Blockbuster’s complete demise is somewhat premature. Here in Kihei, Maui, it continues to exist, much to our surprise! Hold on those shovels of dirt!!!!

    Love the lady with the leaves. She is inhibited only by her height. In fairness they are creating jobs for many. We could use some of those examples here in Canada.
