Many methods now exist to deliver video images to your brain. You can get your fix via mail delivery, the ubiquitous Redbox, or your Internet connection (legally or otherwise). But nothing beats the pleasure of visiting a brick-and-mortar store owned by people in your community, and then stumbling across a DVD copy of the documentary, foreign film, slasher flick, rom-com or Hollywood blockbuster that all of your friends have been insisting that you watch. You didn't need to put it in your queue; you walked in and rented it from people who know something about movies, or who know whether the second season of Fringe is worth watching. If it's on video, Casa probably has it.
