Well, another blow for the pirating industry as the Senate passed an RIAA back bill that will further make stricter rules on intellectual property.  Information taken from the C-Net article which will be linked below this my take on this subject will be provided below.

The RIAA is the group that is trying to protect musicians and their right to release music and stop the pirating and illegal sharing of copyrighted music.  This information and group all began bitching when Napster blew up the scene back in the early 2000’s.  Firstly, as you can see, I am not big on the stance of musicians trying to protect their business and their creative commons.  However, I give credit to the bands that accept and nurture the sharing abilities of the music to the masses and support getting their names out by any means possible.  But, I do agree with the other half in trying to protect their music and making money, because hey its a business.

I finally just don’t think that they will ever be able to stop the pirating of music just yet, because there are so many outlets and so many places.  There just isn’t enough jurisdiction on the web to control what the whole world does, and frankly if that ever happens, it’s going to be a sad state for the world, and Big Brother can take into effect.  The link to read the full article can be found here.  CNet.com – Senate passes RIAA-backed bill

I figured today I would post something that was bugging me during these Olympic events.  I dislike the new scoring and think its biased as well.  I watched an interview from some German guy basically saying it was open to let more biased scoring in for teams that have a higher political advantage towards others.  I think its pretty absurd that politics are ruining these games and creating such a buzz and poor publicity for these games.  The kings of poor publicity during this time has to be China.  That country has gone and dented so much of their reputation that it’s unbelievable how their country hasn’t had a revolt.  Maybe its just because society there is under so much repression it can’t do anything but bend over and take it.

The Chinese governement, in one simple word “sucks.”  They kicked a kid out of the opening ceremony because she didn’t seem like a good person to represent her country i.e. she was ugly.  That’s absurd.  The girl is 7 years old.  But, we can’t get a great opinion about a country because they are lying bastards who try and represent something they are not.   It’s just frustrating how much politics absolutely ruins everything in life.  In this article here. The Chinese actually defend it as a statement of “favoring one girl and making one sit on the bench.”  how so?  You had one girl sit on the bench and then had that girl that was riding the pine do all the work while you had someone else gain notoriety?  Piss on you China, your politics and what you want people to see earn you a spot in hell.

Next, another story that is so incredible I can’t believe it’s real.  A performer was injured during practice and was not attended to for 50 MINUTES!  Are you kidding me, seriously?  She is now paralyzed from the waste down and some speculate that it could have been prevented if the Chinese governement would have let parametics enter in a timely fashion.  Also, once everyone found out this person was hurt China went ahead and said that it was a broken leg. China, if we ever meet, I could shoot you.  I honestly feel bad for people that live there and have no way to escape their government.  Link to article http://au.news.yahoo.com/a/-/newshome/4898104

Haven forbid you talk about Darfur.  What’s going on there is so balls, one can’t even comprehend that their government is a piece of shit.  They revoked a visa of an American Olympian because he was an open activist for Darfur.  Well newsflash China, what your doing to them is fucking insanity, I only hope that someday someone can do that to you, and killing someone’s dream of being a medal winner in favor of your good face is ridiculous.  I hope the politicians die for it.

Their government is absolutly insane.  You can’t have an opinion, you can’t protest, you can’t live, you can’t breathe, and to the Chinese government if you live there, you certainly have no freedom.

To everyone who reads this and are of a foreign nature.  Please, don’t think I hate people of Chinese nature.  I simply am astonished that this government can destory someone’s soul, and dreams in order for it to always seem like its one giant land of OZ.

Big brother is getting closer and closer to controlling the masses folks!  Steve Jobs unveiled the new Iphone and boy does it look sleek and more affordable price.  Steve Jobs is quote as saying “We’ve learned so much with the first iPhone. We’ve taken what we’ve learned and more and created the iPhone 3G.”  I don’t know what I am more happy about.  The fact that every few months or so they release a new phone making it cheaper and more efficient.  Or the fact that whoever purchased the latest and best Iphone is getting screwed out of money due to the decrease in prices and new super releases of the same product.  Either way, its awesome.

I for one, don’t see why they can’t develop one Iphone with compatibility to just load everything off of the web.  I think that it would be more efficient as well as making their consumer pay more for the applications.  To me, it’s absurd that people are actually going out and buying these things up at such a fast pace.  This country is so upset about prices and economy, and our unwilling to cope with gas prices, yet we’ll go drop $300 bucks on a new phone because we have to have the latest and greatest…..is there something wrong there?

Call me crazy, but I see the problems that lie withtin there.  I forgot to mention how obessed society is with having the newest stuff to claim their social status.  Were all to blame though as well, its just as much our fault as it is the media outlet, because we eat this crap up like candy.

Hopefully it changes some day.  But, I worry as if something drastic has to happen before people even realize the total sense of hypocrisy they are living.
