I have to say, your username is slightly crazy! is there a story behind it?
hehehe... I love tall ships from the 1700-1800s, and these little kids who took gunpowder to the cannons were called "powder monkeys" because they could fit in places to get the powder where grown men couldn't. I also like the Monkees, and every 60s band ever (from the 60s. LOL). so, there's the monkee! ;)
Aaaah! Clever.... I'd almost got the monkee bit, after I saw your bird's names...... So do you like pirates then? *looks hopeful* Look at me icon!
I guess I do. sailors always see them as the 'bad guys' and stuff, but they're irresistable. lol. I like the icon ;)
I know! But I like ye olde pirates, not modern pirates, who are not cool, and steal things like cars...
oh yes. olde pirates are infinitely better indeed. they have charm at least. we don't like the radio stealling kind of pirates. lol
or the downloading movie type of pirates.
i got into a huge debate about downloading movies yesterday. got pissed at like.. the entire side of my class. THIEVES!!!
lol... they don't think that's stealing? what's the reasoning?
something about if they download a movie.. it's less than a dime of what the studio will lose.. and i said that's a load of crap cuz there are millions of jerkoffs just like them around the world that might as well make the studios lose millions of dollars and waste their time making such big productions since these people don't even have the decency to RENT the movies. *shakes head*
oh yeah.. and they also said it was "smart" to dl cuz apparently the movies are online the day they're released or weeks before... and... "the quality is excellent and you don't even have to pay a penny. what's the point of a cable modem, anyway if you don't use it???"
arghhhhhh. i've since shunned these people. lmfao.
How could it only cost studios a dime? A movie ticket is almost $10 these days and a DVD double. and you're right, if a million people do this, multiply to find how much the studios really lose. And if they lose money, they'll stop making quality movies like LotR and we'll get stuck with an influx of bad movies. psh.
yeah, so bottom line, it's a real "smart" thing to do. I hope some day they get caught. Then they'll really see how "smart" it is to do. Because it's also "illegal". lol
exactly. i was like "watch you get arrested and i'll be laughing at you" and they were all going "ha! they SAY they can catch you. but HOW? huh? once i dl them i burn them onto a dvd and delete them."
so yeah.. i really hope they get what's coming to them.. cuz... *shakes head* some people don't realize how much work and money and energy and talent it takes to make a good ass film. they should reallly watch some LOTR special features. might turn them around. haha.
oh definitely. And I could understand if they went out and bought the DVD after (you know, just download a bit to see if it's worth it or not) but then just keeping it on a disk isn't fair. And you're right, just look at LotR! I think it may have something to do with the fact that we just fell bad for the LotR men because of how much we've seen of them over the years. I know I would never do that to them.
I hope they all get arrested. Or go after the people who set up cameras in movie theatres.
yeah well.. i've always been a HUGE movie fan.. ever since before i could remember.. and.. i really don't see how anyone could support and actually ARGUE that bootlegging and downloading should be right and legal. it kinda sickens me.
lol - you do seem like a movie nut. Like every week you say what movies you've bought and I'm like: I need that one! LOL. and I like it when you post links to trailers. I always go see them, haha! :)
No, because that's really nasty and boring!
definitely. there has to be some adventure there. stealing car radios is boring. not cool.
i remember in 91.. when we moved here to NYC... our audi had a window bashed in a few weeks after we arrived.. and a week after that.. the radio was gone. and so and so forth...
yeah... we ended up selling the car.. or what was left of it.. before 92 hit...
damn. nyc has changed so much since rudy was mayor...
really? in what ways?
My father looks like him. we always used to make jokes about that. ;)
that really sucks with the radio though. so wrong. :(
ohh it's a LOT safer now..
and i remember... back before the crackdown and stuff... you would be in the middle of manhattan traffic and a bum would spray your windshield and wipe it with newspaper and just stand there until you roll down your window and give him some money... but yeah.. still didn't help with the ink grime that he left on the glass.
now.. that sort of this is illegal. haha
! wow, that was interesting... poor guy... a newspaper? haha
hm, I thought you'd be a Rudy fan because of political affiliation. Or not? *is confused* hehe
hmm??? ohh i am a rudy fan... i met him when we first moved to NYC... when i was 4... there's this movie theater two blocks away from the apartment we first moved into.. and yeah.. haha.. he was there.
anywhoo.. yeah.. i wish a third term were possible.. *cough*.. bloomberg's not doing much...
Rum! Rum, and swords! That's what being a pirate is about!
BUT, WHY THE RUM!??!?!?
i. loved. his. face. when. he. yelled. that.
