Hello everyone – long time listener, first time caller. Today I went out to purchase season one of Room 222. I’ve always considered going to a store to make a purchase to be one of life’s simple pleasures, and this was something I looked forward to all week. First stop was Best Buy- they didn’t have it. Next, I went to two different Zia locations (Zia is a buy-sell-trade music and video store). Struck out at both places. I went to Barnes & Noble, even though I knew the price would be higher. No luck. Last stop was Target, and they didn’t carry it either. So I came home, money still in my pocket. I realize that Room 222 will not sell as many copies as “Quantum of Solace” or “Twilight,” two of this week’s other new releases, but I always thought the purpose of a store was to carry a variety of merchandise, so people with different interests could find what they liked. Apparently that is no longer the case. I’ve been through this before, with The Donna Reed Show, Jason of Star Command, Secrets of Isis and other TV titles. But now I’m done. There used to be places that could be counted on to stock every new release, regardless of their perceived popularity – Virgin Megastore, Tower Records. They’re all gone, and the few places left that sell DVDs treat them like an afterthought. So, like so many of you have already done, I will now purchase my DVDs from amazon or Deep Discount. And another of life’s simple pleasures bites the dust.
