The Wrong View

It seems like the TV show The View just cannot seem to get out of its own way. Barbara Walters jettisoned Rosie O’Donnell in favor of Whoopi Goldberg. So far, so good. And on her debut, Goldberg chose to defend the ex-NFL QB and current convicted felon, Michael Vick. If ever there was a reason to Bite Me, this is it!

It’s About The Money

From Techdirt :

The MPAA and RIAA are always screaming about how pirates are ripping them off. Personally, I think that they’re really ninjas who are waging the battle, but that’s neither here nor there.

With the MPAA constantly screaming about how piracy is killing the movie industry, putting poor stagehands and grips out of work, you’d be hard pressed to see the problem when you hear that the box office take this summer passed $4 billion for the first time ever. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that movies are a social experience. People like going out to the movies if the experience is fun and good. If there are good movies, people will go out and see them, even if they’re available as a free download online. Just imagine what would happen if the movie industry stopped freaking out, stopped treating everyone as if they were a criminal and (gasp!) actually made the movie-going experience more enjoyable? It seems quite likely that dumb movie industry policies are costing the industry a hell of a lot more than piracy ever has or ever will have.
