ABUSER FRIENDLY INTERFACE
been noticing an annoying trend recently with newly released DVD's..
remember back in the good 'ol smelly days of VCRs?
you'd hire a movie for a lazy night on from the video store..
bung it into the machine..
and then spend the next few minutes fast forwarding thru AAALL the crap..
all the copyright warnings..
dumb commercials for warner brothers movie world..
dumb trailers for b-grade straight-to-video releases you'd NEVER ever see..
"Children of the Corn 7".. or a 4th "Chucky" movie..
or some dumb trailer to a period costume drama / chick flick, which in all their wisdom they decided to slap in front of a Quentin Tarentino movie.. those dumb fucks..
*sniff* makes me all nostalgic thinkin' about it..
y'see.. this shit should be a distant memory..
coz with our shiny DVD's you could just press a button and BANG, instant movie!!
wow.. ain't new fangled technology real zippy n neato?
doesn't it make you explode with the happy?
YAY 5.1 dolby surround (or DTS.. for all them audio nazis)
YAY to special editions / commentary tracks and easter egg hidden bits..
NO MORE DUMB FAST FORWARDING..
NO MORE DUMB ADS..
the little fukka's are back..
I bought me "I, ROBOT" last Friday..
watched it tonight..
had to skip thru.. like 5 or 6 freaking adverts, trailers, wot'ever the fuck..
"DOWNLOADING MOVIES IS STEALING.. BLAH BLAH BLAH"
"woo.. look a trailer to.. um.. aaarrrr fuck.. skip it.."
fuck.. drove me nuts..
and it's even worse with some DVD's, when they actually BLOCK your attempts to skip them..
like waiting for those freaking copyright messages..
just so I know to NEVER show my DVD on any jails or oil rigs..
(coz I'm always one to party on an oil rig.. YAY FOSSIL FUELS!!)
seriously, this whole thing shits me..
they develop a technology.. that gives me INSTANT ACCESS to the shit I WANT..
and then, the dodgy fuckers.. decide to invent MORE technology to take this choice away..
wot the FUCK is UP with you freaks!!??
I have the CD burner.. but burning CD's is illegal!
I have the internet.. but downloading is illegal!
my PC can play CD's.. so my PC's my stereo.. and now, they make CD's that wont play in my PC..
everyone has mobile phones.. but lets make the calls so expensive, nobody talks unless they really need to..
they still sell cigarettes but there's nowhere people can smoke them..
Low Carb Diets..
how retarded ARE we?
YOU FIX A PROBLEM..
DONT GO FUCKING IT UP AGAIN DAMMIT!!
