Bye Bye, Blockbuster! We're Gonna Miss You So!

blockbuster going up for sale

At least this isn't unexpected. We've known this was coming for a while.

In an effort to save themselves from Chapter 7 liquidation, Blockbuster is putting itself up for a sale auction this April.

Disney, other Hollywood studios, AND other creditors are owed over $100 million by Blockbuster, but the company was able to reach an agreement with its creditors.

According to the agreement terms, Blockbuster has been given a proposed April 4 sale date, which will be "followed by a court hearing to approve the sale on April 7."

Guess we'll see if Blockbuster is able to survive on any level after the sale. Once they're gone, that will more or less mark the end of video rental stores.

Kinda sad. Netflix is great, but there was something kind of fun about the experience of browsing for movies in the store.

Plus, it was a social occasion too! No better way to strike up conversation than shared enthusiasm for The Godfather Part I or II or III.

Are U gonna miss Blockbuster?

A Magical Weekend With Mom At Disney

Filed under: Personally PerezMomma Perez

Perez Hilton and Mom Teresita Momma Perez at Disney World Magic Kingdom

Mom's birthday festivities concluded this weekend when we sent her and a friend of hers from back in Miami to Orlando.

Well, little did Teresita know that we were gonna show up as well and surprise her! We did and we had THE BEST time at all four Disney parks.

We had never been to Animal Kingdom before and that park blew our mind! The safari was so rad! We saw bats for the first time ever! We were transfixed by them! The Expedition Everest ride was really cool as was the dinosaur ride.

We hadn't been to Epcot since 1997 and going back there was super fun and a flashback to our youth! We saw Captain Eo, which was so rad! And we loved seeing all the tweaks and updates, as well as riding the new attractions, like Test Track, which was fun fun fun.

The Tower Of Terror in Orlando is WAY better than the one in Anaheim. Plus, we had never been on the Aeorosmith Rock'n'Coaster before and that was so thrilling - you go upside down! - that we had to ride it twice.

And, of course, the Magic Kingdom is still the most magical place on Earth! So special! We loved it all, especially seeing the subtle changes they made to the Haunted Mansion.

We just wish we had more time here to enjoy all that Disney has to offer. There's never enough time!

And there's never enough time to celebrate mom and tell her how much we love her!

Te adoramos, mami!!!!!

xoxo

P.S. Thank you THANK YOU thank you to Greg Bell and everyone at Disney for taking such good care of us. We appreciate you all so much! You made our trip more than exceptional! Can't wait to come back!
