There’s Still One Blockbuster Left

Scatter Seeds Of Kindness

If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

Blockbuster became a pretty lost cause awhile ago, with most of their locations having closed down several years ago. Their empty buildings look like ghost houses. But there were still a few locations where Blockbuster never gave up.

There were still six locations in Alaska, and one in Oregon. However, this past week was a sad moment for all of us – all of the Blockbusters in Alaska closed down officially.   Four had actually closed down earlier this year, and the final two in Alaska also closed down for good.

Fear not though! The one in Oregon has absolutely no intention of closing and is here to stay and continue to bring us all the best classic movies, surviving merely on the nostalgia factor. Even though it’s clearly easier and cheaper to just stream movies online, people are still coming to this location to rent movies.

The very last Blockbuster location to have held out is pretty proud of themselves and excited to still be standing. Older workers absolutely love explaining to the new generation what a floppy disk is.

Although their technology is rather outdated, their movie selection still has new releases all the time in their wide selection of movies.

Hopefully the Oregon location can continue to stay alive, and keep the legend of Blockbuster going.
