It's good for you.
Buy local, particulary when the shop offers greatness. VU is an amazing shop with a knowledge ridden staff (I like the guy that has a tatoo of VU's closing time on his wrist). These are movie nerds, folks. If you want to break the mundain and market research B.S. that is big box stores, head to video universe. Oh, and you can follow them on twitter, too. @videouniverse.
