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.

Customer Comment of the Week

Customer Comment of the Week:

"Do you have a Reese Witherspoon section?"

yea... let that one sink in for a minute.

When the woman said that both Adam and I couldn't help but laughing out loud because we literally thought she was joking. So did the other customers in line. She was not. Adam got himself together enough to actually say to her "That would be nice, but that wouldn't really make any sense".

She could not have asked that question with any amount of forethought. It's not like asking if we have a Classics section or if we split up the Foreign section by the country, or even if we organize based on director like some more specialized rental stores do.
Think about the implications of organizing our store based on the leading or supporting actors and actresses.
What's even better - think about why on earth we would have just a Reese Witherspoon section. MAYBE a Robert De Niro section or something, but Reese Witherspoon?
Having a Reese Witherspoon section would be helpful only to that particular woman at that particular time. It would certainly be nice if I wanted a Sandra Bullock movie without having any specific title in mind if there was a Sandra Bullock section, but this isn't a perfect world.

Adam and I couldn't get over how awesome this comment was. I hope you enjoyed it on the same level.

    that would be confusing because if the reesewitherspoon movies went into the comedy section and one other in the romance section then you'd have to place movies all over the goddamn place. haha i said goddamn
