Video Rentals

Rage Against the RED Machine

So yesterday I went into something called a “Video Rental Store.” It must be some new concept the whiz kids in Hollywood are trying out. Instead of a reddish box there are people, and instead of waiting for my slow Internet to buffer, I just drive there and come back. It’s crazy! I’m not sure if it will really work.

Of course the main issue isn’t usually time and convenience as much as it is price.

There really is no choice, you can either change your whole business structure or retire to Florida and rent VHS to the elderly.
