339. Video Fan Skull

Arranged DVDs. Thanks to my friend Erin (pictured) who is a manager at my favorite movie rental store Video Fan, for letting me come in and rearrange the shelves (and thanks to the owner Doug for not minding!). I grew up in the neighborhood where this store is located and have been renting from them since it opened (about 20 years ago)! Not only do they have a great selection, a friendly & knowledgeable staff, and take requests for what to stock (and actually follow through), but they give out free popcorn & tootsie rolls, and even dog biscuits to their furry customers (take that Netflix!). If you live in the area you really should support them!

Did they make you re-alphabetize before you left?
It would be great if they could keep it. Might make a good Halloween poster for them.

Yes, I stayed and helped re-alphabetize. I actually scheduled more time for that than for making the skull!

You helped alphabetize?! oh, the agony... I think I would have had someone call me on my cell phone and then say I had a skulladay emergency! - "So sorry! A friend spotted a skull in her Lucky Charms! Gotta go!"

I loved my local video shop, and ended up working there. It was my favourite job.

I see a second skull in a picture to the left of the cashiers head. Great skull image.

Excellent!

I also love the clever popcorn box in the upper left corner of the pic.

Great one!
And I think you should try make a 3D Lego Skull before the end of the skull year!

I love this video store! Where can I get one of my own? I think I'll go down and talk to my locally run video store, I also know the owner! I'm sure they would implement some of these premium services to their shop! And could that be a picture of Noah with a skull to the left of Erin's head?
Btw, I LOVE to alphabetize and organize stuff, I'd of done it for yas! I know, I'm weird. But what do you expect, I found skulladay looking for one of my weird ideas!
