A Pirate’s Life For Me

Fifteen leeches on the dead man’s seed–Yo-ho-ho, and a folder of torrents!

Downloading pirated movies is wrong. Doing so also makes you a digital pirate. We’re told that the FBI will deal with is if we do so, yet millions do it everyday. We’re told that it takes away from actors, directors and the lot from getting their bottom line, yet I see no one’s pockets going hungry over there. But I’m not writing this to say whether they should crack down harder on video pirates or not. Not going to bring up SOPA or PIPA…besides just now. I’m not even going to talk about how expensive movie tickets can get in contrast to how much cheaper it is to just use you computer wi-fi that you’re already paying for (if not that’s a whole different story).

What I’m going to talk about is who the hell do I blame for me doing such a thing!? I was a person who always knew would be in film one way or another, so when I saw/knew people who had bootlegs I usually said something about it. I vowed to never buy a bootleg (still true, they just suck really) and to never download a video. Needless to say that last vow didn’t make it to the convent. It wasn’t that I didn’t wanted to buy a theater ticket. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to buy the DVD. It was that IT WASN’T AVAILABLE TO ME!! That’s what got me started anyway. I enjoy watching all types of films, internationally made included. What am I to do if a movie is made in Europe or even as close as Canada or even made in the States and I don’t have access see it.

  • I want to see the movie Whiplash, the closest theater that is playing it is over 250 mi away. Torrent.
  • I enjoyed the movie Into the White. Wasn’t in theaters near me…torrent, I’d like to own it. Only on DVD in Norway. Torrent.
  • I really want to see The Theory of Everything. It was released in select theaters…not near me…TORRENT

Do I enjoy doing it? NO! Am I happy to get to see these movies despite not having local access?? YES!!

Regionally released films and select theater released films add to this. You have got to know that there is land between New York and California you know! Films released in Europe? Who’s making the decision on when and where a movie get played/released? Using my location for this argument: is it the US companies who are asked and they say ‘No thanks we’re good” or is it the distributing company who doesn’t bother to ask. Is it for marketing reason that it’s not released in certain areas? Is there too much red tape to get a movie released internationally?

All these questions come to mind, but I certainly don’t want to blame myself for doing an OBVIOUSLY illegal thing…….


Yo ho! Yo ho! A pirate’s life for me.
