Our city had one of the few remaining Family Videos is the US and just closed last month after 20 years. Not as reliable as buying on digital but was always about the experience. They always had a movie playing in there and had a distinct smell and the customer service was always so nice and people that just truly enjoyed movies. I miss it.

Our local grocery store had a video store inside it. It closed about two years ago. I would stop there all of the time. It was cheap and I was there weekly anyway.

We still have a couple Red Boxes but the video store was kinda like the watering cooler before the internet became the source for all information. Was one of my first jobs so it was fun talking to people about movies all day. 5 days rentals were so convenient compared to the 24 hour rentals on digital. Somehow half the price as well. Lot of nostalgia. Just read 200 closed in the last year or so. Sad.

Definitely, we have redboxes too but it's definitely not the same so I stream everything now. Our store had a couple of long term employees that were great at recommending movies and games which is a huge part of the reason that I kept stopping in.

A radio station here had a competition where people could go to a screening of Point Break.  They flew in the son? of the people who run the last blockbuster in the US and he brought the DVD with him.   Just a whole lotta good feels

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has declared Australians will be fuming after Holden allowed its business to "wither away" even as it pocketed $2 billion in taxpayer-funded subsidies.

The federal government vowed that Holden will be held to account over its promise to support the 600 workers and hundreds of dealers affected by the company’s decision to cease all Australian operations.

The classic brand will be axed in Australia at the end of 2020, just three years after it wound up local manufacturing.

It has posted its lowest monthly sales since the first Australian-made Holden rolled off the production line 72 years ago. Holden's American parent, General Motors, will close its Melbourne design studio and test track at Lang Lang on the city's south-east outskirts.

“I am angry … like I think many Australians would be. Australian taxpayers put millions into a multinational company. They let the brand just wither away on their watch,” Mr Morrison said.

This holden business is old news. It's just never been made official until now. The biggest hint was when stocks of ZB commodores were being backed up in german factories to the point that holden had to cancel orders and halt production. 

Nobody's interested in what they have to offer. They've been trying to fight off the bogan stereotype by styling there cars more like european cars. If they just listened to their market and appeased the bogan types they'd still be afloat just like ford with their imported mustangs performing "better than expected" ?

i got some chit going on with my hands or something.  for the last couple days ive been trying to figure out whats the culprit without going to see a doctor.   its hard to make a fist  especially when i wake up, and theres like some burning going on in my hands or something.  even holding a lighter or gripping onto something

using the internet to trying to diagnose myself and simply googling "it hurts to clench my fists" or "cant make a fist after waking up" has yielded me all kinds of scary stuff that gets me paranoid as fook.   has only yielded some scary results, like carpal tunnel, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, vasoconstriction, hypertension, rhabdomyolysis, kidney and heart diseases and all kinds of fuct up stuff that im im pretty sure isnt really at play here, and its probably just some inflammation or a fluid buildup some nutrients my body is lacking, or just the way ive been sleeping, or i might have over strained my hands playing video games and using the computer too much or some chit

 every time i try to use the internet to try to figure out whats wrong with me, google starts fearmongering and i always yield some false results that scare the crap out of me. hell the other month i had some swelling in my ankle that lasted for a couple days and i couldnt really walk without being in pain,  and according to google  i had gangrene and probably needed amputation. well yeah that obviously wasnt the case, but thanks for the prognosis google.

ive barely drank much in the last month so ive done a good job getting sober, but staying clean not so much. i put my body through the ringer and wasnt really sleeping or eating much either and after being up for a few days  i crashed out on friday night pretty exhausted. pretty sure i dehydrated myself cause when i woke up i couldnt make a fist. but now after getting some peopler sleep and drinking lots of water and eating again and laying off the drugs for a couple days, my hands are still kinda bothering me and im still having the same kind of issue when i wake up, but not as much as when it first ocured

i guess ill go buy some ibuprofen and see if that helps.  i think i got some inflammation going on in my hands. or perhaps they arent getting enough blood.    maybe i just need to excercise more and eat healthier. and spend less time playing video games and banging away on a keyboard. those 5 hour marathons on pornhub isnt doing my wrists any favours either.  but damn just typing all this out has actually seemed to help a little.  maybe i just need to stretch my wrists more. but its really been annoying me lately trying to figure out whats going on with my hands without having to see a doctor.

yeah if this keeps up for a few more days i'll probably have to. its just so weird waking up and not being able to make a fist all of a sudden. that isnt really normal for me. and then i still feel  some kind of pain or swelling in my hands throughout the day. apparently thats not normal either

i think it might just be diet or exercise related, or i simply just overworked my wrists just from sitting down and playing video games for hours on end.  ive done a fair amount of dope this month but i dont think ive cooked my insides or anything like that. everthing else seems fine except for a swelling sensation in my fingers.    but i also get that alot after playing pc games for too long with my mouse and keyboard.  but usually its only in my right hand  it goes away after a day, and ive never had any issues before clenching my fists or having my hands go numb or anything 

but im pretty sure i dont just get all high and dehydrate myself one day and wake up with rheumatoid arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.  but for some reason alot of those symptoms seems to line up with what im dealing with in my hands. 

but google is probably just fearmongering and its probably just no big deal and i should probably just take better care of myself.     i think i probably just got some inflamattion or excess fluid buildup going on in my arms.  either that or my body needs some kind of nutrients to replenish the muscles or blood cells or something. i dont think its some kind of life altering disease or something.  

but it is kinda weird having a hard time making a fist in the morning and having my hands go numb.  im sure it wouldnt bother me at all if i was drinking and i probably wouldnt even notice it.

It sounds like carpal tunnel which isn't major if you treat it and do the therapy early on. I have it and can't get rid of it but it doesn't effect much besides playing sports.  My brother has it and he can't hold a cup of coffee right away in the morning but it gets better through the day. Numb hands is a very common symptom as well.

You have "free" health insurance so get it checked out and treat it sooner than later so they can help cure it.

i was thinking carpal tunnel all the way but that doesnt explain why both of my hands would start acting up at the same time

but i have been using an xbox controller for a fair bit of time. but nothing too crazy. usually i just notice it in my right wrist. and  thats after using a mouse for extensive pc gaming  sessions.  and it always goes away once i stop playing.  ive never had a hard time closing my fists the next morning.  let alone a few days later.

i really dont know.

Anyone here following the Astros cheating scandal? I've been following it since November when Jomboy threw out that Youtube video of the White Sox pitcher who caught on to the trashcan bangs

Over/Under right has been set at 83.5 for hit-by-pitches for Astros players for 2020 season. Can't wait to see those dirtbags get drilled , especially Bregman, Altuve, and Correria. I'm all for stealing signs if you do it the right way i.e. runner at 2nd base relaying signs to the batter (chit, I was taught to do that in little league) , but the whole techonology and camera zooming in is straight BS.

they went from worst team in 2016 with most strikeouts to best team in 2017 and LEAST amount of strikeouts. Good thing they didn't win 2019 World Series and/or Bregman winning 2019 MVP (Trout is by far better anyways)

Caught a couple rounds of fire noggin on I-10 while my girl was on all fours naked in the passenger seat during my latest trip down there. One of them was definitely in the middle of the afternoon on Friday (Valentines Day) after we ****ed around in New Orleans for a while, aaaand I got passed by a cop while she was at it. lol.. Zero ****s given!

^^That also happened. Some Mexican dude lost control of his horse, and my drunken **** turned off into the neighborhood to help him. That was a whole episode in and of itself.

lol watching the maple leafs game and the hurricanes  got both of their goalies injured and put out of the game and now theyre about to use their emergency backup goaltender

i think the dudes like a plumber or something. who played a game or two in the minors a year or two ago or something.   they may as well have picked a random fan out of the stands and threw some goalie pads on him

lmfao the emergency goalie was the toronto marlies zamboni driver!   and despite giving up 2 goals on the first 2 shots, he was rock solid after that and they ended up winning the game and he got the first star! he's the first ever emergency backup goaltender in NHL history to be credited with a victory

 this is pretty much rock bottom for the maple leafs. cant even win against a 42 year old zamboni driver.   thats fooking embarrassing and they should just fire their whole team and all of their coaches.
