The MPAA is a pain in the ass

by @ 8:27 am. Filed under Business, Personal

I love how I heard a story on NPR this morning about the MPAA whining over lost profits from piracy.

It failed to mention how box office sand dvd sales were up in 2006.

It failed to mention how overseas sales are skyrocketing, but stories in the New York Times have shown that the MPAA refuses to release these sales figures.

It failed to mention that maybe better movies should be made using cheaper methods if the industry wants more profits.

I expect better from NPR.

MLK Day, but not “MLK Holiday”.

by @ 9:13 am. Filed under Personal, Politics

This is one of those “psuedo-holidays”. Some people get it off, most don’t.

I’ll tell you I voted against making it a “holiday” when it came up for a vote in Arizona, my reason had nothing to do with who it was for, but rather how it has been implemented and who gets it off.

I think that MLK day should be a Federal holiday for all, not just for some. Even if I had voted for it I wouldn’t have got it off, nor have I ever gotten it off since it was legislated as a holiday.

A holiday you have to work, is no holiday at all.
