    Alex the quote of the day, really? You practically gave it away in the quick takes.

    And what do you think of Blockbuster declaring bankrupcy?

  • @Jose: I notice that you failed to actually answer the quote of the day. It’s from Dracula by the way.

  • @Jose – I find that news about as shocking as the news that ‘I’m Still Here’ was a hoax.

  • Andrew R.

    I laughed way too hard at the Harry Potter spell list. Particularly the We Want to See moment for Nox.

    The only way that documentary could be more Finnish is if it involved a fish-slapping dance.

    Quote: Come on, pick something harder. Dracula.

  • Quinn

    That is the easiest I’ve ever seen on an Of the Day.

  • Haha, all right. Tomorrow’s quote of the day is going to be brutal, I promise.

  • It seriously suprised how long it took for Blockbuster to announce bankrupcy. I remember back in the day you couldn’t walk inside a Blockbuster because there were so many people.. :(
