    I just saw the original Mortal Kombat gameplay video on Youtube then I remembered going to the mall and my mom bought me a copy of Mortal Kombat for the Super Nintendo. Nostalgia hit me hard.

    I actually miss going to Blockbuster on a Friday night to pick up a couple of good flicks and some munchies. Streaming services are convenient, but there was something exciting about going to the videostore.

    I dug up one of my old favorite comics and remembered the old dingy poorly lit comic/book shop I bought it at. That old building now has a ton of bums and criminals in the area and I'd probably not go there anymore via car when before I'd go by bus.

    Truth. Just watched a video with Jerry Cantrell today and remembered back to the 90’s. Then as I’m waxing nostalgic, I realize that death has touched all but one of the Big 5.
    Pearl Jam - All alive
    Nirvana - Kurt Cobain
    Sound Garden - Chris Cornell
    Alice In Chains - Layne Staley and Mike Starr
    Stone Temple Pilots - Scott Weiland

    Plus a bunch of others from decent bands of the era.

    All the time. It’s often too overwhelming, and I get lost in the way things used to be, or worse, the ways I imagined they were.

    There is still a video store in the town I live in. It's the a chain called Family Video. I go there once and a while and rent UHD Blu-rays. They are only $2.50 for new releases and $1 for nearly new. The quality of them is leaps and bounds better than streaming. They also have a video game section where they rent XB1, PS4, and Switch Games. They even have a porn room in the back:D

    It's a huge store too.

    When Chris went I just wanted to swoop in and wrap Vedder in cotton wool.
    @Ottawaguy, yeah I miss Blockbuster Friday nights as well. A movie, bottle of wine and a pizza. Much more simple times.

    yes, it gives me a euphoria like a happiness and followed by a down sadness when I realize those times have come and gone. I hate it, because you miss those innocent days

    Same. Didn't deal with Blockbuster at all as there was a local store that was really popular. There was another mom and pop place I used to make special trips to rent laserdisc.
