Governments generally struggle with technological progress and legislation never keeps up with what’s happening in society, especially what’s happening on the Internet. This also goes for the ancient entertainment industry where end-bosses don’t seem to understand that it’s better to adopt the inevitable than to fight it. But fortunately, just a few days after the death of Megaupload there’s some good news, the PIPA and SOPA bills are shelved for now and it’s not likely they will survive.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides [TRAILER VIDEO]

April 25, 2011 by Remco | 0 comments

I’m a huge fan of Johnny Dep who acted in an impressive amount of movies among which one of my favorites “Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas“. But of course most people will first associate Johnny Depp with the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. Well, good news for the Pirates series fans because in may already the fourth part will be released: “On Stranger Tides”.

Most hit movies become lame by the time they reach their 3rd sequel and I’m a little bit afraid that it will also be the case for this sequel, but then again, most movies don’t feature Johnny Depp. Anyway, the movie will be release in may of this year and for now you’ve got to settle for this TRAILER!

Content theft gets me so #%$@ upset!

November 22, 2010 by Remco | 0 comments

Yep, when some guys from the country of molded cheese decide it’s ok, cool and just normal to steal 10.000′s of pages of content from classified sites that actually worked hard(!) an invested money to get this far, I get upset, really upset. But I stay polite and just tell them in my best french: “Faut péter dans l’eau pour faire des bulles” which to my understanding means “have a nice day”.

For the rest I would say enjoy the totally unrelated, off-topic, nothing-to-do-with-this video which doesn’t necessarily express my own opinion or feelings…… Btw, the video is courtesy of Youtube, South Park Studios and Comedy Central. Now, you see? That isn’t so difficult to just follow netiquette and mention the source, comprendre??!!!!

Limewire is dead…

Big party this week at Necker island, Sr. Richard Branson arranged the girls Steve Jobs was popping the champage while Madonna shouted “WE WON, WE WON”. Even Prince (a.k.a The Artist Formerly Known as Prince) was joining the party again preaching his evangelic about the the end of the Internet. Almost everyone was there except Justin Timberlake who’s on the blacklist for sympathizing with Kazaa. Yep, it was a jolly good party and the music Industry is saved, from now on everyone will buy music on iTunes and the “good guys” win, never mind RapidShare or and the thousands of others.

To quote a famous Dutch Football coach: “Are you so stupid or am I that smart????“. Has the music industry still not learned that the only way to fight something is to come up with a better alternative, like asking prices that are reasonable and that people can afford? From SangatPedas we wish the music industry good luck with their swimming against the current, fighting windmills and daydreaming. Congrats on your “win”!
