On the Way Home


Just a quick word before I go retire to the couch to watch Down By Law with Tom Waits and Roberto Benigni (sp?).   First, sorry I haven't written up Miami but, to be honest, I just haven't been in the mood.  I did enjoy the tournament quite a bit and will get to it sometime.

Second, on the way home from the Blind Pig (where I was in the odd situation of having a beautiful girl who wants to go out with me...) I stopped in at Hollywood Video to pick up some crap to sit around and watch so I wouldn't have to do any work. I ended up talking to the owner for about an hour, which was cool.  He was a nice guy, he didn't even mind when I made it clear that he was the enemy (as the chain video store).  He said they make about 75-80% of their money from new releases and about 10-15% from concessions...  yup, that candy you see sitting around.  So that other 5-15% is from those old movies that take up 80% of the floor space.   

And the hollywood video in Athens is one of the best selling stores in the country (for sales, not rentals)...

Just thought I'd mention it.
