in the future, everything will be fed to you by computerized algorhythms, you will never be taken in by a "cool" cover or propinquity or even some Quentin Tarantino-esq clerk's recommendation....
This is a total bummer. It's already come to this. I used to go to the local video store owned by an old frail-looking guy. He used to put little stickers on all the movies that he recommended, and I'll be damned if he didn't blow my mind with some of those. He had a pretty extensive collection of Troma movies, B-horror flicks, and cult classics.
Flipping through "categories" on netflix is nowhere near as cool.
