Blockbuster, amazon.com, youtube movie, and a few others are out there Plus Hulu if you like ultra low budget C rate movies. Hulu is awesome I am watching My Name is Earl, Misfits, stargate SG1 and a few others. I like it because I can watch at work on hulu.

Netflix is my Star Trek outlet. It has TOS, TNG, Voyager, Enterprise, and DS9 all on streaming. So I am almost done with Voyager Then it is on to DS9 then Enterprise.

Unfortunately I am going to stay with my $17.99 plan of streaming 1 dvd with blu-ray. It sucks but. It is not all there fault.

Eff Blockbuster; they did a good bit of damage to themselves over the years by treating their customers like crap. The local BB closed about a couple of months after several BB vending machines appeared in town.

I have something very important to do today. I have to go pick up my new Ruger Mark II, cross the sidewalk at the gun shop into their range and shoot it. Then I have to come back and post a range report.

I have great memories of Blockbuster, going every Friday night for weekend movies with my young son. But those days are over. Technology and arrogance have passed Blockbuster by. They fell asleep at the wheel by letting Netflix and Redbox overtake them with a new, easier to use concept.

I think people who drive with their dogs in the bed of their pickups are morons.
