Now, I don't know about you, but I've never seen a high quality bootleg of a movie. NEVER. And I've never known anyone to wholeheartedly prefer their bootlegs over actually seeing a movie in a theatre as the quality is just terrible most of the time. The fact is, that if you really enjoy a film, chances are you'll see it in a theatre even if you've already seen a bootleg of it. Chances are even better that if you really enjoy a film you will buy the official release of the DVD as they tend to be rendered with a much higher quality than can be easily copied, include extras that a bootleg most often cannot reproduce, and present *value* for their cost, unlike music CDs, which can be digitally reproduced without a degrade in quality and which present no extra value in their purchase.

In this article, the chairman of Fox Filmed entertainment claims that they really just want to teach this generation that stealing is wrong no matter what form it takes.

Corporate executives and actors teaching us all about the importance of moral values? It sure as HELL isn't by example.

One more thing

So, we have a channel set up on the replay box to tape Cops. Becuase Cops is funny, dammit.

Well, it also picks up Animal Cops, which more often than not is way too disturbing or upsetting to actually watch. I decided to watch this episode before I delted it.

Some puppies were brought in almost dead from heatstroke with temperatures of 106.
They were cooled off and saved. They went to the home of the person who brought them in and found more puppies and an adult pit bull. The mother of the owner of the dogs was there and said the owner is 16. Michigan has a law stating you can't own a pitbull until you're 18. Apparently dog fighting is a major issue in detroit. So they seize the dogs.
Also, they say that the Michigan humane society has a policy of NOT ADOPTING OUT pit bulls becuase they feel they are too dangerous. And so the dog will be destroyed. The puppies don't *appear* to be pit bull puppies though, so they'll adopt those out.

ANY DOG is dangerous when you train it to be dangerous. What an insane policy for a HUMANE society to have regarding a breed of animal. It's like saying that animals who are abused and have agression issues because of it should just be destroyed as they're dangerous.

GRAR.

on another note, mika likes shoes. She doesn't mind bitter apple either.
