My coworkers and I are/have been put out of work due to our VHS/DVD store being put out of business by the powers that be (I'm looking at you, internet!) but we had one last salvo... one last KICK AT THE DARKNESS IN ORDER TO MAKE IT BLEED DAYLIGHT!

That kick came in the form of this web series called SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL VIDEO STORE, directed by Miss Andrea Papineau.

In this episode, a horny couple come into the store looking for porn. Let's listen in, shall we? :eyebrows:

And here is a link to the other episode, which does not feature my junk, and is therefore inferior:

I did, however, come up with the peanut butter idea.

Sorry to hear about the job loss, that sucks. That looks like it was a rad store, with or without underwear counter dancing (bonus points for Tinto Brass product placement!).

There aren't any local video stores left in our area to support, unless you count Blockbuster, and fuck those guys. The last indy one in Jackson Heights closed last year.

We have one or two left, but I won't go into the "city" unless I have to. Parking sucks. They've been there a long time and was where I first started watching Something Weird stuff in college.

Great video! Really liked it. I didn't recognize the titles they picked up, but I thought it was hilarious that Irreversible was on that shelf. Me personally I would've recommended them Wedding Trough/Pig Fucking Movie. Failing that then Sexual Emotions of a Donkey.

You know what, I actually thought of Pig fucking movie, but we didn't have a copy to stick in there. Great minds think alike, eh Alex? ^_^

Also, hilariously, look who is on the cover of the entertainment paper in Vancouver this week:

My co-worker (and co-star in those videos up there): BJ! Look at him, stone cold pimpin' the VHS! ALL RIGHT BJ!

I would love to support a indy store. But in the shithole I live in the nearest video store is a damn Blockbuster. Unless I want to drive almost 2 hours there is no other choice. That is the reason I have pretty much been using Netflix for the past 4 years.

New episode!

This one is based on a real experience that happened to us where a weird smell was coming from behind a wall of VHS

What was the smell in real life?

Dead mouse. Died in a spot where we could not get at it, and it stunk up the whole store for a week -- to the point where I witnessed customers come in, take a sniff, turn on their heel, and walk right back the fuck out.

Then they brought in this horrible deodorizer that made it even WORSE. Then it just smelled like death and sweetness mixed.

Hey look, a new episode of S.Y.L.V, and its one that I wrote. I also stretch my flabby thespian muscles in the stinger at the end.

This one was also based on a real event in the store that I witnessed.

I thought you were actually gonna rip off your shirt and flex and am very sad that you didn't.

On the other hand, I'm glad to see you're almost as grey as I am.
