Can anyone remember the last franchise that *isn't* made from recycled property? Indiana Jones? Aliens? Die Hard? Holy shit, Batman--I really can't remember.

I love Big Brother.

Just because you have a right, doesn't mean they have to make it easy to exercise (see: abortion clinics).

"Unanswered by this story: Why not just use bean leaves?"

Obvious, trivial answer: Because there's no money in it.

Never heard of the "first three songs" rule, but upon reflection, it sounds fair. I'll be using it.

A little perspective from an out-of-towner: Here in Miami, having a show start 1-2 HOURS late is totally normal, and broadly expected.

Welcome to our world. Hope you enjoy your stay.

They pushed too hard, as comedy must do. They took it back, as decency must do. They fucked up, they owned up, let's move on.

The smokers who think that it sucks don't talk about smoking; they talk about quitting. Hang with them.

What we're pissed about:

Let's acknowledge that publishers can release their entire back catalogs immediately in a digitial format. Let's further acknowledge that it would be a mighty boon for those who prefer a digital format (because owning a full library is overrated, especially when you have to pack it for a move).

Why isn't every released and out-of-print book on Kindle right now? Money. The costs are so low (no paper, no printing, no shipping, etc.) that the customer won't stand being gouged. So when a publisher releases a book at hardback price, the customer calls bullshit and stays away, waiting for the first pirate to do what the publisher could have done all along, but chose not to.

@18: Sorry dude, but that's all fiat currency ever is. The only reason to accept a medium of exchange that you can't eat, drink, or smoke, is that you believe that another will do the same.
