Okay, I have been posting five days/week lately. Did not know if you had notice? The Monday-Wednesday-Friday posts are the types of posts I always write, and the Tuesday-Thursday posts may be a bit shorter. Anyway, for a better post, look at Wednesday's post, "On Death".
Before DVDs, before Netflix, before internet movies, there was Blockbuster. I would frequent Blockbuster in the mid 90s, and I watched all sorts of movies. I did not have cable (still don't) and did not watch much television, but I loved movies. At the time, we did not go out much for movies, but we watched them at home. Frequently.
I would love Tuesdays, because that was the day that Blockbuster got new movies. I still think that is the most common day. I would watch musicals, romantic comedy, humorous, and occasionally drama. Blockbuster is a company that likes its reputation, and they don't have the curtain in the back with the adult movies. Instead, they have some drama that is really light porn. Zalman King's Red Shoe Diaries is one of those movies.
Anyway, Red Shoe Diaries starred David Duchovny as Jake, who would read a letter to his dog Stella. His character always had such a wonderful voice, and although the contents were salacious, they seemed to be introspective as well.
I have not thought about those naughty movies for years, but I actually saw them on Fancast - complete movies online. Anyway, this is a shocker to me. No curtains, no waiting in line at Blockbuster to get the movie, just click and watch a salacious movie.
