    I kept thinking of the Record Store from That ‘70s Show.

    James Spader’s memory reminded me of when we’d run out of a New Release title at Blockbuster, and they trained us to either push a different film of the same genre or another movie with the same star when we (inevitably) ran out of copies of tremendously popular films that they’d only sent us 7 copies of. 2 got eaten by VCRS the first week, 2 were never returned and 1 was stolen. A lot of people who came in to see Mike Nichols'(s?) “Angels in America” went home with The Graduate or Catch-22, which I don’t think was what they came looking for. It’s like someone coming in for “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and your only on-shelf option is “Revolution #9 b/w “What’s the New Mary Jane?”
    It feels morally wrong. 🙂

    Also, am I having some kind of Mandela-effect moment, or did James Spader ever have his name credited as Spaader? I can’t get it out of my head that I’ve SEEN it, but also maybe it’s just bleed-over from learning the title “Baader-Meinhof” around the same time and having a TBI in the last couple of years… It just ‘feels’ like I’ve seen it so I’m wondering if anybody else has that recollection.

    Also Also, The ‘Some Girls’ callback reference @4:21 was brilliantly understated.

    Also also (also) Sorry: I just relocated to Michigan, and I think I underestimated the potency of gummies this evening.

    I loved his ‘tastes like chicken scene’ in Roland Emmerich’s Stargate https://youtu.be/PU0JkXIN27g and his later ‘I smell like yak’ scene.

    He and Robert downy Jr. Started out in a movie with Kim Richards! I wish, I could remember the name of that movie now, it was in the 80s!
    Lord he was a handsome devil! He still looks good for his age and just as humorous as always!

    The way he tells stories… You’d think he was still in character as Reddington.

    I love that he always sounds like he’s had a few drinks. Still a gorgeous heartthrob.

    I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

    Here’s what I’ve been doing…>>> W­­­w­­­w.W­­­o­­­r­­­k­­­J­­­o­­­i­­­n­­­1.c­­­o­­­m
