2011 Goes To The Movies
I go to the movies once or twice a week mostly because I’m enamored with the experience of watching something in a dark room with complete strangers while eating my weight in popcorn. The thing I like best about it though is that you lose all sense of location. Going to the movies is the same everywhere, just with different ticket prices. I don’t feel like I’m in New York or California; I’m just at The Movies which is a place that has always stayed the same. It’s the perfect form of escapism and it’s usually cheaper than getting drunk or doing drugs! Usually…
You can’t argue with a good trailer either. This supercut of 16 movies coming to a cineplex near you in 2011 is both invigorating and uncomfortably American. Like is it just or me or does watching this video make our country look completely insane? If aliens were to watch this, they would deduce that our planet got a sick thrill out of terrifying ourselves and had an unhealthy obsession with other life forms i.e. them. They’d be like, “Why you so obsessed with me?”

Is the digitization of music killing the record store, or should stores simply adapt their business model to be successful with the contemporary moment?
