Well this is just kind of sad. Personally, I haven't used a Blockbuster in years, and I get why it's shutting down, but considering how much I used it in my childhood it feels like a big bummer.

Feel sort of bemused/proud/bemused again that our little town's mom and pop rental shop is still going.

A once giant, albeit incredibly arrogant, corporation finally accepting that it's time has come and gone. We'll miss you Blockbuster. D;
