You can’t win, but there are alternatives to fighting


Name that movie.

Episode IV: A New Hope.

As virtually every entertainment site and news outlet is reporting, the Star Wars original trilogy went on sale today (on DVD).

After another yoga session I swung into Sears and it hit me. I could have purchased the set from, or Best Buy, or any of a thousand e-tailers….

…but I went to Sears. I never go to Sears. As a non-homeowner I don’t buy tools, I don’t buy durable goods and despite their “softer side” campaign, I’d still opt for Target. Heck, I don’t think I’ve been to Sears since I finished my driving school there over 10 years ago.

…but back in the day Sears was it because they were the company in with Kenner, the sole distributor of Star Wars action figures and sets.

It kinda hit my how proper it was that my purchase should have been there.

Strange that we have intimate relationships with capitalist institutions.
