I was (ever so slightly) saddened to read that music and DVD store, Fopp has gone bust, closing 105 of its stores nationwide.

I used to be a regular customer, and bought some real treasures from there, most notably one of the last remaining Die Hard I & II limited edition DVD boxsets in the country.

Like many customers, I haven’t been in ages and have simply relied upon cheaper online stores for DVD purchases and MP3 downloads. It is inevitable that HMV will also go the same way as Fopp, MVC and Our Price, in the not too distant future.

You have to feel sorry for the staff who have lost a months pay. Expect shit loads of stock from pissed off ex-employees, who beat the liquidators to the stockroom, to appear on eBay.

R.I.P. Fopper

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
