May 20, 2005 : Downloading entertainment for freeMovies
"You know what really fucking bothers me these days. You go to the theater and pay out $10 bucks and some change to go see the next action this, or drama that, and even before you're subjected to these horrible excuses for modern film, the likes of which I may mention are dictated by the studios and camouflaged as what we the public wan... Who the fuck asked for a Scooby Doo 2??? Before all that, you have to sit through back to back commercials which feature the poor unfortunate film makers who are losing out because of all us evil film pirates who are downloading movies instead of buying them. Well let's clear up some facts ok. First off, even the lowest level film makers, script girl, prop man, etc, makes anywhere between $10 and $22 dollars an hour. I know this because I am an independent film maker. Secondly, anyone, and I mean anyone, who simply stopped and thought about it would know, that in order for someone to download a film, the film has to be first made and in order to do that, a production team has to be put together and be PAID to produce the final project. What this means is not only are the film makers getting paid, they're getting paid well. So, what really pisses me off about the whole situation is these commercials, where they try and make us feel bad because we're bad people for doing what we do. And YES, I don't care who knows it, I Thabow, download films, music, and TV shows, and I do it all the time. Why? Because, why not? Why get charged for something you might spend two or three hours with? If it were sex, should I feel bad that I didn't have to pay for it? Back to the commercials, what really bothers me is that Hollywood Inc wants the public to stop doing it because it's eating into their profits, that's fair; but, to straight out lie to the simpler of our peers, by saying that we're stealing and we should be ashamed. Well that just sends me into the red zone... Look it's like this, the films that I download and like, I buy. The films I don't like, I delete and forget about, so boo fucking who cares. P.S. I'm about to watch the new Star Wars, via download... George Lucas has been making money off of me since I was 6, so now he's going to give me a freebie. Rant on." : Thabow : Amsterdam : Holland

May 10, 2005 : Movie Stars and other famous people HATING the paparazzi!General
"You know, if you make millions and millions of dollars from the public (i.e. as a movie star, rock star, etc.) then SORRY, you have to put up with the paparazzi. It is as simple as that. We all want to hear about your life and how it sometimes stinks just like ours does. You are rich because we pay to watch your films and listen to your music. Sorry, that is the price of fame! Furthermore, when mere actors and singers dare to compare their plights with the paparazzi to that of Princess Diana's, shame on them!! She was not profiting from the public's interest, she was just trying to make the world a better place. George Clooney, get off your high horse... just be lucky the public cares what is happening in your life because when they no longer do, you are a HAS BEEN!!" : Tina : San Juan : Puerto Rico
