So I just saw the trailer for the upcoming feature film of  the novel “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” by Ned Vizzini.  I bought this book off the $1 table at my local store because the cover art was intriguing.  Oh little did I know about this story.  The 2007 book is a witty, incisive story of a young boy having young person problems where the narrative, character, and story are such standouts that it makes this book a captivating read.  Cut in three years later and have two relatively unknown screen writers (Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck) put their paws all over this book; add a peaking star comedian and you have your standard Hollywood novel defamation act.   Continue reading

The Word! 005


I didn’t think it would go this far, yet now I can’t stop. What is becoming if all this mumbo jumbo? Fill yourself up on some information that has been processed through the filter of JB and regurgitated out to you in this oh-so-clever format. It’s all here: free music, science, politics, technology, school, movies, health issues, oil issues, environmental issues. What else can I offer you.

In referring to downloading pirated torrent files U.S. VP Joe Biden  says “It’s smash and grab, no different than a guy walking down Fifth Avenue and smashing the window at Tiffany’s and reaching in and grabbing what’s in the window.”  Really Mr. Biden?  Smash and grab; that implies me: 1) Smashing: breaking or damaging property that is not mine.  2) Grabbing: taking a product away from the owner leaving the owner no product.  I don’t feel that pirating does either of these two things at all.  Instead of me smashing the widows at Tiffany’s and grabbing a diamond, I make an exact duplicate of it.  At this point my enjoyment of my newly created thing does not take away from Tiffany’s, except under the false assumption that had I not created one out of thin air I would’ve bought theirs.

It seems to me that most of the CD’s I have pirated I have listened to many times while allowing others to listen with me.  Maybe they purchased something from the band they normally wouldn’t have because my hearing my pirated material.  As well lots of times I end up buying other products from the band based solely because of a product I have pirated.
