Bastards (probably part one of many such installments)

I'm not a moviegoer, so today when I tried to rent a film from Blockbuster for a school assignment, I was rather stunned to find that it is apparently no longer possible to simply hand over a bit of cash to have the film for a couple days. It is actually required that one has an account and a credit card just to have a shiny disc or two for a couple days. I told them to stuff it, rode my bike across town, and got the thing out of the library for free.

Incidentally, I had tried to download the thing earlier, and I ended up with a complete, hour-and-however-many-minutes film that didn't have any sound. Grrr....
