The Decline of Western Civilization

Exhibit #236,814

My local Blockbuster doesn't have room on its shelves for The Fabulous Baker Boys, but it does have room for F.A.R.T.: The Movie. The proprietors of this store have decided that more people in my neighborhood would prefer to see a movie that "dares you to pull its finger" than to see Susie Diamond do her thing in that little red dress.

Another item on my list of grievances: this store has Escape from L.A. (a piece of junk), but NOT Escape from New York (a wonderful piece of junk). When I asked the manager why they had the sequel but not the original, she stared at the DVD box for a second and said, "Well... this one's newer."

As Homer Simpson might say, Quentin Tarantino must be rolling over in his grave.
