Real life Clerks
Posted by Derek at 8:54AM

The Video Store Project is collecting personal stories of people who worked in video stores in the 70's and 80's for an academic dissertation. The growing collection of stories makes for some great reading, and you can submit your own!

My only disappointment is that my tenure at Newsboy Books and Video began and ended in 1991, putting me one year beyond the scope of the project. I learned a lot about life in that little corner of Southern California. You can only rent so many copies of Shaved Ladies to fathers with their kids in tow before you go all existential.
