“90s and up” kids understand the joy that was blockbuster video.
friday nights at blockbuster was poppin’.
that’s when you go to rent the newest release that was in the theater.
i use to beg my parents to pick up “such and such” a movie/game.
for those who remember,
there was like 50-11 copies of the new movie and all of them would be gone.
those were some of the best moments of my childhood.
blockbuster is no more (well except one place in the us)…
…but it’s all about streaming movies and tv shows.
no more getting vex by something we want to see not being in stock.
it’s all there at our fingertips,
whether illegally or not.
i woke up from a nap today to see all of my 90s fav black tv shows are coming back…
Time to pop bottles🍾🍾

Moesha – Aug 1
The Game S1-3 – Aug 15

…and i screamed tf out.
sidebar: where is brandy?
“moesha” is her vehicle.
i’ve always wanted to watch all the episodes of “moesha”.
i haven’t seen all of those others shows in their entirety,
but i’m glad they’re hitting netflix for me to enjoy.
i had to wonder tho…
Would Blockbuster still be successful in this decade?
i had to ask.
if every season of every black show ever made were at blockbuster,
would we actually leave our cribs to go rent them?
i would if it was in my neighborhood.
i think some of the foxhole would do too.
lowkey: i love that most of those black actors/actresses are getting a check for this.
