    Is this Antioco's response to WB's "Swordfish" move? Is he essentially saying, "Okay, you can reduce VHS prices to sell-through levels on their initial release...that's okay because we won't rent VHS anymore, we'll strictly rent DVDs...which you and I have no revenue-sharing agreement on, so we-win-you-lose and we-get-to-keep-all-the-money, nyah-na-na-NA-nah!"

    I don't rent anyway, so it's no skin off of my nose. Blockbuster can fall into the see for all I care.

    WFAA channel 8 announced that blockbuster was cutting their VHS stock by 25%. Of course we knew this was coming.

    Hey fella . . . I bet you're still livin' in your parent's cellar . . . downloading pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar . . . and posting "Me too!" like some brain-dead AOL-er . . . I should do the world a favor and cap ya' like Old Yeller . . . you're just about as useless as MPEGs [sic] to Hellen Keller.
