I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
I got most of my bootlegs overseas, as illegal copies are the only copies you can get at all. $2 at a hadji shop and you have a few new titles of questionable quality. Sometimes the sound doesn't line up, sometimes the camera is covered for a moment if an usher comes near, but once you have it, you can right click and drag the file to your hard-drive and it's yours forever.
Ever seen Game of Thrones or something else on Blu, and then go to the streaming or cable counterpart? Tisk tisk. In the proper hands, much better on Blu.

Radio uses music to attract an audience...to listen to commercials. That's the right commercial use of music. It's long established that music is the free shiny to guide us into the light to zap our wallets. Artists are very good at making audio shinnies we like to follow. Where artists went wrong in trying to charge for the music directly. No, we will have our shiny, and we won't pay for it if we don't want to. If the artist can get some extra cash by selling the music directly, great, but free music isn't a big deal. Artists should stick with using music to create ratings to sell.
Owning free music is a crime like j-walking or going 5mph over the speed limit. Get over yourself.
Done properly, Bluray is 10X better than standard. It's like the difference between VHS and DVD. I don't buy anything now that isn't on Bluray. That being said, I only have about 100 Blurays. The rest of my collection are standard. They are hard to watch now. So blurry and grainy.

I seriously doubt there is much of a difference. But i guess if i had piddled my money away on a stack of Blu Rays, I'd also want to feel good about that.
Bah physical media. The Pirate Bay is where it's at.
