  1. Bye bye Blockbuster! (eventually)

    Most people work at places like Blockie as a slightly less shit alternative to McDonalds either part time and/or short term. But for anyone looking for a long term career there, I’d say think again.

  2. so I had a look at the youtube trailer for Hanna..and due to my usual crap BT download speeds it stutters and stops. So if I paid for the real film is there any way of letting it load first before playing I wonder…otherwise it would a waste of money
