Death Of A Website

This week one of my favorite websites of all time was shut down. No, not I'm talking about TV, which was a site that allowed users to watch literally hundreds of films and TV show episodes for free, from the comfort of their computer chairs. I'm talking new movies, old movies, movies which were still in theaters, foreign films, obscure television shows from all over the world, cartoons, and even music videos. I mean this site was the BOMB-diggity. I could honestly spend HOURS a day watching entire films online or catching up on old TV show episodes I never saw (and had never wanted to spend the money on renting).

But I knew from day one that it was too good to last. It was obviously violating all kinds of copyright laws and it was only a matter of time before someone like the Federation Against Copyright Theft came knocking and busted up the party. And lo and behold, this week they did just that. They shut down the site, and arrested it's owner. Oh well. I'm gonna have a good cry, pick up the pieces of my shattered life, and try to move on...

Mark's Quick-Capsule Movie Reviews For July 1, 2007

For those of you who don't have the time to go out to the cinema, I've whipped up some handy-dandy mini-reviews of a few current films to save you the trouble of seeing them!

1408 - As far as films titled with numbers go, it's not quite as scary as Se7en, has a shorter running time than 2001, has better effects than 300, has less disco music than 54, and has more laughs than 1941.

Knocked Up - Who knew that having illegitimate children from a one-night-stand could be so fun!

Evan Almighty - A sequel to a Jim Carrey movie - minus Jim Carrey! How could that possibly go wrong?

Live Free or Die Hard - Remember the days when Bruce Willis could say "Yippee ki-yay motherfucker" and not get interrupted by a sudden loud explosion right before he got to the "fucker" part just so the film could earn a PG-13 rating?

Pirates of the Caribbean 3 - I don't want to say that this film's plot was hard to follow, but it made Syriana look like The Care Bears Movie.

Shrek the Third - Stop encouraging them! They're just gonna keep making more!!!

Confound It All!

I really hate it when other people answer their phone, say hello, and then IMMEDIATELY start laughing hysterically. That pisses me off. Nobody has EVER said something THAT funny to me right after I've said "hello". EVER. And I can't imagine myself coming up with something so extremely hilarious to say as a first sentence of a phone conversation that it would cause someone to instantly begin laughing uncontrollably.


I'm the first to post here!
