Blockbusters Fails To Make It To The Other Side of The Hexagon

As a pesky quasi-Commie (not down with this Stasi business, though) who finds it hard to mourn dying chain stores, I can't deny I think both of these behemoths falling helps encourage more personalised tastes, rather than pick-and-choosing from a certain type of item placed in front of you. A shelf devoted to New Adam Sandler Comedy and one scratched copy of Seven Samurai tucked away out of sight behind the counter.

Fuck it, hanging around high streets for fun never struck me as all that savoury a pastime. Always catch the pungent whiff of people in desperate need of a fix whenever I cross paths with town centres. I'm not sure if people are actually buying less or just satisfying their lust in their own homes, but anything that dials down the feeling that I MUST BE SOLD SOMETHING just because I'm out for a walk is a step in the right direction s'far as I'm concerned.

(Not preaching here, just describing my own visceral reactions).
