Dreams came true last month, for people who like their video format VHS, and their movies titled “Jerry Maguire.” The inspired tapeheads of Everything Is Terrible created a video rental store, fully stocked with 14,000 of copies of one title: “Jerry Maguire,” VHS only.

VR Panorama: 826LA Writers Room

I recently visited Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles to shoot a virtual tour for the amazing non-profit writing and tutoring organization, 826LA. A number of illustrious students have walked the halls of M.A.H.S.—founded in 1910—including Jackson Pollock and Frank Capra.

Click the panoramic photo above to explore the Writers Room, and to visit other rooms at the school. And when in L.A., be sure to visit one of 826LA’s two Time Travel Marts–there’s one in Echo Park, and another in Mar Vista. They have a sister location in Chicago, The Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co., and on the East Coast, you’ll find 826nyc’s Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co.
