TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY END OF AN ERA: WESTPORT BLOCKBUSTER STORE CLEARED OUT TONIGHT!!!
On the way home from my 19th cup of gas station coffee today I noticed the tragic conclusion to a Kansas City tradition in this digital era.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE WESTPORT BLOCKBUSTER CLEARED AND CLEANED OUT TONIGHT!!!
At one time this place was jam packed with all of the cool people and its movie stock rivaled indie places like SRO video which it helped to run out of biz.
Tonight, a couple of working class white people were putting the final touches on cleaning out the place . . . Look closely, they did a really good job.
Long, long ago my parents didn't just rent movies but rented one of those big, old school video cassette players from this place for my 10th B-Day Party where I screened Back To The Future for my snot-nosed rug rat friends . . . And that was just a couple of years ago (kidding).
Anyhoo . . .
This is a look at technology in action in Kansas City. Merciless. Ever-changing and shifting the game so quickly that it leaves only empty shells behind.
More for the morning update . . . Now I'm gonna see if Eraserhead is streaming anywhere for free online.
