  • Here’s a thought that says Hollywood doesn’t have a clue how to stay relevant ow.ly/BHT0I

Yesterday was also *Talk Like A Pirate Day*

See that little key? It means that unless you have a cable subscription you can’t watch. Idiots!

Their thinking is they get so much money from the cable subscribers they can’t afford to let us pirates in. Arrrgghh!

  • They’re getting far less from their ads then they could already.
    This is the Internet, after all, not cable. Visitors can interact.
  • They’re making people mad who don’t have cable and can’t get around this block.
    Wait, never mind, there aren’t any of those
