Heard a rumor from my nextdoor neighbors, Bruce & David (and, seriously, those dudes are never wrong) that TLA Video on W.8th Street is closing. (yet another reason to avoid this once hallowed strip of Greenwich Village). TLA is housed in the same complex that plays host to Hendrix's fabled Electric Ladyland Studios. I feel slightly complicit, as the wife and I just recently joined the hive and subscribed to Netflix, but TLA was indespensible for stocking out-of-print, hard-to-find cult classics and esoteric foreign films galore. It was simply a great, great store staffed by cool, knowledgable folks. And I gravely rue its departure.
They'll probably turn it into a fuckin' Jamba Juice.
