You know how it’s this thing nowadays to talk about how library books smell, like it’s all romantic to say something like “Ahhh, I just luuuuurrrvvve the smell of library books, it reminds me of the library on Nantucket that I used to visit as a child.” Well, we say it’s high time DVDs got their due. In fact, why don’t you head down to Vulcan Video right now, stand in the aisles, and take a big whiff. That’s not just plastic and galvanized space metal (or whatever DVDs are made of) that you smell; that’s the smell of movie magic, baby. Movie magic!
