It's a pop-culture, bromantic musical comedy. In a book.
In an act of cosmic irony (or at least petty antagonization) the name of the coffee shop located next door to the Christian bookstore is Religiously Roasted Every Goddamn Day. Alan works part-time at the bookstore while his best friend, Dave, slings java at the coffee shop.
After a series of brutal rejections (jobs, women, video rental membership), Alan is pretty sure his time in Orlando has come to an end. The only thing left to do is break the news to his best friend - he just has to figure out how to squeeze it in between conversations about an old man with a pinky toe fetish, the problem with institutionalized religion, and constant interruptions from the neighborhood's (semi) musical duo.
It's gonna be a weird day at Religiously Roasted.

Tobey never wanted to run a video store. Liv never wanted to be dumped right after moving to a new city. George Lucas never wanted the prequels to suck.
Let's face it, it's not gonna be a great day at Videorama.
It's 2005 and Tobey runs a mom-and-pop video store with the help of his one employee (and only friend). Together, they're just trying to stay afloat in a sea of Blockbusters, pop culture, bad movies, and customers with terrible taste. Tobey inherited the store from his parents, despite never actually liking the family business. In fact, Tobey doesn't like much of anything -- which starts to get problematic when Tobey's brother arrives with an offer he can't ignore.
