Movie Meltdown - Episode 241

A reunion of former Suncoast employees started out to be just a session meant to discuss some of the strange customers we used to get. But along the way, we also end up also covering the actions that brought down a corporation. And we end up with an overall look at the demise of the retail sales system. Quite an accidental accomplishment for a few guys who were just looking to make fun of some peculiar characters at the Mall. This series of discussions was years in the planning... and as it turns out, it was worth the wait. 

And as we head down to the food court to to get some Sbarro pizza, we also mention... blank tape, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, average units, 65" not-flat-panel-TV, Nightmare Before Christmas swag, Hawaiian-style Tri-Gun button ups, Canadian Rocky Mountain Fur Coins, smelling like a $14 magazine, Angelina Jolie, Misty Mundae, it was the 8-Track of DVD, Hot Topic, working the morning of 9/11, batteries, having antenna, a half hatchet/half pipe, the inventor of Disc Doctor, one of the dozen special editions of Army of Darkness, One Direction, the return of The Mountain Man, being on the cutting edge of DVD, men would line up next to a pool... and ravage him, I think that's the sign of a man, Coffee Guy, a psychic medium, The Argentinian, investing in a camera, The Fifth Element, Napoleon Dynamite products, a shady DM, the Sauder home storage unit,  a baggie full of change, what's a Superbit?, a blossoming pornography career, Adult Swim, beating the girls off with a Wiffle Ball bat, lefty had change righty had the bills, a 100" projection screen, your die-cast bust of Morpheus from Matrix: Reloaded, loosely-based on Charlie Chaplin's autobiography, what's a microfiche?, M.C.
