Why I hate pirating but…

with one comment

… if there are no other alternatives, I’ll do it.

this is to you AMC.

So you spent a bit of cash on a thing called “The Walking Dead“, a zombie show, if you will.

Question 1) Didja not think it would appeal to geeks and weirdos who were internet savvy?

Question 2) Didja not think that some of said demographic might not be able to watch replays at 2am or even 12am

Question 3) Didja not think about helping to broaden your fanbase by making the pilot available online for, I dunno, those folk who weren’t able to make the premiere, weren’t sure it would be any good, or had other shit going and couldn’t dvr? Didn’t own a DVR? Whats the matter, digital distribution too hard? No one to help? Like… I dunno, HULU???

Question 4) Didja not think those geeks who missed it and would be told by their peer group that this show is awesome, might know a thing or two about how to obtain it if you didn’t.

Question 5) Didja NOT think that a lot of these folk are good tax-payin people, who can’t stand piracy, but hate the fact that corporate america STILL doesn’t get its audience and get – I dunno that whole FUCKING INTERNET THING???

Question 6) If I donate to AFI the cost of 1 6th of the cost of a DVD, will that absolve me of the guilt of having to go to “the bad place

Question 7) MalwareBytes is still one of the best anti-malware programs, right?

Fucking Fucking Fuckety Fuck – seriously – you have a [i]website[/i] for FSM’s sake, don’t just play teasers about something cool I missed – post the pilot!

USE IT, you Assholes!

Fuckin’ AMC.

Ask Glenn Beck (1)

Given that GB is so interested in scams and political shennanigans, I’d love to hear his thoughts on the Banks lending the .gov THEIR OWN MONEY with interest.

Don’t you think GB should also be talking about that? He talks about GM and National Debt but I don’t see anything about the Banks ripping us off.

Glenn – if you’re as non-partisan as you say, I think your audience needs to hear your thoughts on this.

The Closest the con has gotten to the light. On…

with one comment

Of course, The Daily Show on May 13th.

The Banks (JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and Citi) made money every day last fiscal quarter, regardless of how the market performed.

Matt Taibbi from Rolling Stone Magazine also broke this story, but I’m shocked how little light has been shed on this, and how very very very FUCKIN VERY little people know about this.

Short version: remember that bailout? Where the .gov lent these banks money at 0% interest? What did the banks do with this money? Well they bought treasuries. In other words, they lent money back to the government… but charged them interest for doing so.

What.The.Fuck.
