Wherein Anecdotal Tales Related to DRM are Told

Oh man, you guys are not going to believe this. I went out to movie theatre, right? And at the front of the theatre I was going to, there was a guy checking my ticket! What the shit? Like I was just going to walk in without a ticket, then go out and watch seven other movies later. Then I went to Best Buy to pick up some movies and stuff, and Iíll be damned, they had little scanners at the front door! Like I was going to stuff electronics in my pants and just walk off with them and sell them for drug money! Who does that? Weirder yet, they even had cameras set up to make sure I didnít. I have no privacy or trust! So then I got my mail and saw that I got my new debit card. I tried using it, but it wasnít activated yet. I had to call my bank to have them turn it on. Like I was just rifling through everyoneís mail and decided to take anything that looked like a debit card and use it to buy a new plasma screen TV. No, idiots, this is my debit card, I shouldnít have to talk to your service to use something I purchased. And you know the real kicker? After I activated it, every time I use it I have to enter my PIN to prove it was really me and not just a total stranger. After all that I needed a drink so I went to the bar where I had to provide my driverís license before they would let me order a drink. It was soooooo dumb you guys.

I swear, everyone today just thinks Iím some kind of thief, out to screw them out of their money. Letís protest electronic stores, grocery stores, movie theatres, banks, airlines, and anyone else who treats me like a criminal for trying to use their goods or service. Seriously, what rights do these assholes have to try and make sure that people arenít taking advantage of their service or products! Itís not like people shoplift, steal, swindle, or scam! Every single person is a good upstanding citizen, and business has no right to say otherwise!

My Belmont Run for Dark Souls can be seen


I also did a blind run of the DLC, which you can view

And here

I also covered the progress of building my own gaming PC. I had no experience, and overall, it wasn't all bad! If you are on the fence about it, I suggest you read about my efforts

And here

The series never had a part 3, because I was having waaaaay too much fun playing it. Suffice to say that it does alright these days.

Thanks for stopping by my blawg!
