The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

Meta is so Meta

For those of you readers who know your humble bloggers personally you'll know that one of our favorite over used words that makes little or no sense in the context with which we use it is "Meta".
It refers to all things metaphysical but more specifically anything that is trippy, anything that blows your mind, anything thats like a paradox.. for instance looking at a mirror image of yourself could be considered meta. A snake eating itself is meta. A Pink Floyd song is meta. The ending of "2001: A Space Odyssey" is totally meta. Anything on Criss Angel's "Mind Freak" is so meta (full article on this due out soon). The DVD we have called "The Life and Times of Life and Times" is SO meta.

As Drew defines it: "meta is like when you wake up from a dream and you wake up into another dream and it's in outer space"

Or as Urban Dictionary defines it:

1. meta
An adjective used to desribe something that might be a stretch, that is, an overly indirect relationship. I.e. metaphysics, where relationships are extrapulated between mind and matter.
"Dude, that mushroom growing out on our front lawn is totally symbolic of the threat of nuclear war, you know, the mushroom cloud and stuff!""That seems a little meta to me dude."

Anyway, we just discovered that we have (or had) a customer named Meta Mckenna.
Not only does the name rhyme, the first name is Meta! and that name itself is so meta...
