Disappointed in The Guardian for regurgitating music and film industry fallacious rubbish about the cost to the economy of illegal downloading in this piece. It appears that they are using the fallacy, which they know to be untrue, that every illegal download is a lots sale, rather than the truth, which is that if little Johnny downloads twenty DVDs and two hundred CDs in a year, well just maybe he wouldn't have spent thousands of pounds of money he didn't have buying every single one of them if he couldn't get them for free, I guess. But I suppose I'm not allowed to say that, or that makes me some dirty thief myself! Rot, I tell you! I bought Radiohead's In Rainbows discbox, surely that as close to proves I've never downloaded an illegal in my life as makes no odds!
I was going to give Microsoft's new search engine Bing a spin for you, as it looks interesting and is supposed to be good, but it's not available to the public yet, so nuts to Bing! I may or may not give it a go when it's ready (June 3rd apparently), but they've jeopardised my important celebrity endorsement with their premature publicity shenanigans. Still, I should probably check back with Wolfram Alpha in fifteen years or something when it might be good.
Hurrah - Charlie Brooker is on holiday in Crete, and has lots to say about the telly there in Charlie Brooker's Screen Burn here! My favourite bit is when he says he's staying in a place whose satellite TV system offers about 10bn channels, approximately 100% of which aren't in English. OK, so you can pick up the BBC World TV news channel, but no one's ever willingly watched that for longer than nine minutes. It's a channel whose viewer demographic consists exclusively of men sitting on the edge of a hotel bed impatiently waiting for their girlfriend to finish in the shower so they can go and have a shit.
I was surprised to read about the saucy goings on is that there space, on the International Sex Station or whatever it's called - Space station crew doubles after successful docking said the feed from the BBC Sci/Tech. Doubles? Wow, there really must have been a lot of very successful docking going on, know what I mean, hurr hurr hurr. I really thought they were trying to avoid that sort of thing. Right now nearly all the crew must either be babies, or on maternity leave, or on paternity leave! How does that work, unless most of the crew are unnecessary anyway? It makes no sense, what are they playing at? Hmm, the headline on the article itself has now changed. Crew doubles aboard space station it just says now. Trying to downplay the sexy thing I suppose. In fact the story makes it look like that's not what happened at all! Well, there's no point covering it up after it's gone out on a news feed, it's too late then. Or is it? I can find nothing about the story of the cover-up at all. It must be a conspiracy. Good job It Is What It Is is here, eh?
that's all from me for now
see you around
