[noise |only wanna be with you.- hootie and the blowfish]

i'm gonna do this cuz i thought it was hilarious. i found it on some random person's LJ from one of the comments on my bsb icon. anywhoo... here goes.. i'll just copy and paste her directions:
(original date of post: 11/29/04)

I want this entry to reach 1,000 comments. Yes, one thousand.

Post anything you can think of. Tell me what you had for breakfast. Tell me what song you're listening to. Tell me about something that really pissed you off today. Tell me dirty secrets about yourself. Tell me anything. Hey, you can even have a random conversation with yourself or others. I don't care!

There isn't a certain date or a certain time that I want this to reach 1,000 comments by. I just want it to reach it. That is my goal. Just because. Be cool and link this in one of your entries!

Yeah, and I'm not going to make one single comment. Cheating isn't fun.

Don't let me down! You know you want to! =D

Ready? Go.



aight.. i'm gonna change something. i can't help but comment.. so.. i WILL. *grins*

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.

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...

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

oh, I was just confused cause you said NYC was safer now. :D I love the SNL skit where he was on Weekend Update and sang "Will you still love me tomorrow" with Jimmy and Tina. That was pretty cute yet really sad because he was leaving and Jimmy asked if they could come with him. lol
