Remember Blockbuster Video?

Remember when we used to rent movies at the video store? Ah, the eighties and nineties were a fun time.

I saw this meme on my facebook wall the other day:

I laughed, but the really funny thing is that Blockbuster Video is alive and well here in Alaska. I’m not kidding.

I took the twins there last Friday. Really.


They’ve never been to a video store, so they were very excited.

It’s almost like going back in time.

Then there’s the fact that about half of the radio stations here are playing “classic” 80’s rock. I can close my eyes and be back in the middle of 1990.

Probably not a good idea while I’m driving…
