I miss vhs rental stores. Vision Video was the place I went in school. It was run by aloof hipster movie nerds. I remember being scared to death my first weeks on UGA’s giant campus and then being surprised when everybody went home on Friday and Athens Georgia became kind of like a cold dreary empty hospital waiting room during off hours. It was a ghost town. There was something cool about going to a local store and picking out an old movie I hadn’t seen – with help from movie experts and taking it back to the dorm and watching it alone. I watched movies like Testament, Unforgiven and Bladerunner this way. RIP Vision video – I will miss you. It is depressing how the internet is laying waste to large sectors of local economies.
