WEEKEND UPDATE

Back to our regular scheduled programming.

Apple/iTunes are just down right weird in a bad way. Apparently it is illegal to burn a CD, DVD, or a blu-ray for someone else because Apple sees where/what the users information is or what account it was purchased from. WHY? Now I cant burn a mix playlist for someone that is not added to my account? Keep going Apple, here’s some more rope. It was OK to make copies of purchased cassettes or CDs but “Oh, NO you can’t do that now!!!!” says big brother!? I also can’t just share my legally paid for albums purchased from iTunes backed up on my external hard drive & share my iTunes files with friends? Now we can’t share anything we purchase on iTunes? I paid for it, I own it, I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Now that I can’t, do I go back to purchasing CDs and rip them to iTunes, lend it to my friends & then throw it out, making a larger carbon imprint on the environment? Apple, did you bring the circus to town too!? Or are you intentionally making a comedy of errors?

Kurt Cobain conspiracy movie “Soaked in Bleach” has a release date in the UK. I tried to find it on youtube but came up empty. I keep seeing an invite to a random youtube page that I’m a little leary about?

Black Eyed Peas go retro in new video. William/will.i.am & I don’t see eye to eye. Can’t say I’ve enjoyed anything he’s been involved with other than him with Jimmy Fallon doing “EW”. Profits went to a charity.

^^This is a hard lump to swallow. I don’t want to believe it, but it’s true. I don’t want to report on this topic anymore. Not trying to be disrespectful to the victims in any way, I just don’t want to talk about it. Sorry. I’m not turning a blind eye to it, it’s just a little too much for me & much more to the victims.

  1. I couldn’t agree more: “put your phones away if you are doing something with other people.” I don’t know when it became acceptable to text while you are visiting with someone or for that matter when you are stopped at a red light. What can possibly be going on for you that can’t wait for an hour or more? And when you are visiting with someone can you at least have the courtesy to put your cell on vibrate? Neither I, or the other people in earshot have any interest in the fact that you just received a text. Ugh.
