November 30, Small Business Saturday (and other stuff)

This upcoming Saturday is Small Business Saturday!  While Small Business Saturday is a fake shopping holiday that was created by American Express in 2010 (ironically the only credit card that we don't accept) the premise behind it is great! Spending your money at small business is super important, it's estimated that 68% of money spent at small business goes right back into the community (the other 32% goes to feed my cat Ms. Peel).  More important than any made-up holiday, is the fact the store has now been open for a year, and celebration is due!  All of the customers who have supported the store in it's first year of business deserve to be rewarded!

Whats on Sale?

For the first, and probably only time ever, all of our fine vintage clothing and footwear will be 20% off, pick up some great duds or a sweet pair of boots!  All boxed vintage video games will be 20% and all $5 games will be buy two get 1 free, there will be tons of $1 stuff out too.  All Records will be buy 2 get 1 free, all of our Polaroid camera's will be 20% off and there will be other stuff on sale too, ohhh yeah.  Thanks everybody for an awesome first year!

10.10.13 Disasterpiece Theatre IX: Mac and Me

In an ongoing series of seriously bad films exclusively shown on VHS, Disasterpiece creator Heather Mack shamelessly gives you... Dizazzterpiece 9: Heather Mack Presents Mac and Cheese and me !!!
   Mac and Me, the 1988 train wreck rip off of ET merged with relentless promotion of McDonald's and Coca Cola established new lows in the fields of acting and product placement.  Ms. Mack will be making mac and cheese for your snacking pleasure, and the usual refreshments will be served.
    Kicking off on Thursday 10.10 at High Energy around 8:00, Disasterpiece IX  will have a more streamlined format to allow for an earlier end time.  Bring in your own favorite failed cinematic masterpiece, the next Disasterpiece Theatre will be put to a vote.  All Disasterpiece screenings are currently shown on VHS, so don't bring any hard drives, Zip disks, Blue Rays, DVDs, VCDs, Laserdiscs, Betamax cassettes, Capacitance Disks (betcha' didn't know about those), film reels, or whatever other shitty format you like, it's VHS or bust.  There is strong emphasis on films that have never been released on DVD, but as will all rules, this one is made to be broken.  See you there!
