  1. It’s times like this that I wish everyone thought like me – and we’d all just stop paying for anything that comes out of Big Media.  Sod ‘em.  If they don’t produce content, someone else will – in fact the indie media scene is far more interesting anyway.  Quite frankly they don’t deserve a dime of our hard earned cash, not when they’re working so tirelessly to punish the people that actually pay for their media and have little to no effect on those actually pirating content.  Thoughtless and destructive bunch of techno-ignorant nob-ends.

  2. [EDIT: Turns out Disqus was playing up cause it figured out how to link my email address with my twitter account - crazy Disqus]

    Also, while I’m complaining, what’s with that bug I regularly get where YouTube videos display in the wrong places on the homepage (i.e. a video from a different post displaying in the wrong post)?  That’s some weird shit right there – never seen it before, and I work in web production.

    Dean, pull your socks up!

    A clear example that international corporations are playing nations against each other in trying to bend international politics in their favor. These entities are abominations beyond anything humanity have created before.

    They should talk to Chris Dodd, I hear he’s pretty knowledgeable about this iss…oh, wait.

    Reminds me of a certain Aliens quote:

    “I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.”

      But then they say:

      “This installation has a substantial dollar value attached to it.”

       You know, when I first saw that movie, I couldn’t figure out what Ripley said, it sounded like “I say we take off and nuke the entire site for morbid“.

    This is starting to sound like a Monty Python sketch, Njorl’s Saga:
    “PIPA, sister of SOPA, son of ACTA, which begat C-11…”

    Tenacious bastards, aren’t they?
