I believe Faust said it best:

If feeling fails you, vain will be your course,
And idle what you plan unless your art
Springs from the soul with elemental force
To hold its sway in every listening heart.

I am saddened to think children will grow up never knowing the comfort, the joy, of holding in their hands a cassette manufactured by Magnetic Video Corp, never knowing there was once a time in which all boxes were porn-sized, and all videos, big and small, were important additions to a store’s inventory.

For a year, a month, and a handful of days the only video stores I could find in Las Vegas were Blockbuster or Hollywood. Rather than prostitute myself, I turned to a life of crime. But then, one day, salvation, selection, safety.

Las Vegas does have a video store!
