Fathead got me the Grey’s Anatomy DVD Season 1 for Christmas and I’ve been watching it religiously everyday since.
Then I got the urge to watch Season 2.
So I went to Best Buy and found out that the season 2 DVD was $60……insane.
Disappointed, I pondered downloading season 2, but decided against it, since it would take too much time and effort.
Then I thought of Pacific Mall.
Pacific Mall is a Chinese bootleg haven. It has been raided and fined several times over the years, yet continues to exist, unfazed. Infact it was reported to be the only mall in Canada open on Christmas day. They sell (among other things) brand new high quality DVD’s, usually 3 for $10. I got the 6 Grey’s DVD’s for $25, plus an extra movie for free (Blood Diamond.)
Now people we all know Lady Putz loves her deals.
I sit here, in Grey’s ecstasy, wondering if I should feel guilty?
I am reminded of the theatre commercials about Joe, the onsite technician on Movie sets, who because of my alleged pirating habits, will no longer have a job next year, as the production companies cannot afford to keep him.
Well my line of thinking is this: If movies are still being made, despite the absence of people like Joe, perhaps we never really needed Joe to begin with, and piracy is now the cause of growing efficiency within the movie making industry.
Note: for all the moralists out there, remember, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all……
