Borders is going Chapter 11. Stores may start liquidating their stock starting Friday. Yikes.
In showbiz, we talk about how technology disrupts the business, but it's hard to feel on a gut level that the film or TV industry could just blow up.
But ... they probably felt that way about the book business, too.
It's not really the book business that's been affected. The method of distribution has changed to a digital medium and the same has already happened to movies. I don't know about your area, but several Rogers Videos and Blockbusters have closed around me recently because of the change to streaming video. Books and movies are still being produced, but the physical stores have been rendered obsolete due to the new delivery system.
I still miss vaudeville.
True. Vaudeville hasn't been the same since they cancelled The Muppet Show.
Tu as la raison. The Muppet Show was very good vaudeville...with a side of soap opera thrown in for amusing measure.
As for the TV and film industry, it looks as if they're already working to adapt. How much success they're having depends on which company you're looking at and on what day of the week.
