It is interesting to me that copyright laws are getting stricter and stricter and it is of course because of Disney and their mad hope to keep steam boat Willey theirs forever. But, the whole purpose of copyright is to let the developer make some money off of it and then release it to the public so that other companies can compete and develop something even better. But, that isn't going to happen if they keep making the roles so strict.

Now that everything is going digital, I do not know how they are going to be able to keep track of things and who is stealing what. Everything is so accessibly free on the Internet now a days. People can get, pretty much anything they want online. The companies need to cope and find a way to be able to accept that times are changing. A lot of bands are sampling their music on blogs and my space and then people get interested and then they might by the whole CD to support the band. It is this type of advertising that copes with the reality of today, that people like things for free.

Even if no one paid for the music essentially the music would still get circulated and then more people would attend their concerts.

I like to Consume

Call me what you may, but I like having things thrown in front of me for me to choose and see what kind of product best fits, "what i think i am." I may be lazy, but I like having everything brought to me instead of me having to go out and search for all those types of products and or brands. They are everywhere and I like it.

When I turn on my video games a lot of times there will be advertisements in the games, kind of hidden. Like all of the computers in the game will be DELL or something of that nature. It doesn't bother me because I think it depicts what the real world is like. So, when I see a guy drinking a coke on a TV show, I don't think wow this TV show has really sold out, but I think, hey that guy is drinking a coke.

I know it is different for all of us, but I do believe that some people take it way to far and seriously. If you don't like all of the advertising then go live in nature.

I think what is most appealing to the idea of all these "mooks" and "midrifs" that exist in our media is that they behave the way they behave and it seems that they have no repercussions at all. When in the real world these people would all be pregnant and or in jail for their shenanigans. Teens love the idea, even if they don't behave that way, that they can do and or say whatever they want without repercussions. That everyone and everything will bend to their will and or way of thinking.

The funniest thing about it, is that it sells. MTV is one of the organizations that has come the farthest as far as I am concerned when it comes to this ideology. All of the shows that the have on air right now, is a bunch of mindless crap. None of which really has any substance at all. And the funniest thing about it is that we watch it, and some of us do it knowing that it is what it is.

Media shapes our society and us. The cool factor tends to direct the evil force, but it is not the engine that pushes it.
