I don’t know about you, but I love my free stuff. ‘What free stuff?’, you might ask, you want some too do you, ha ha. Let’s talk business here (oh your so big Mr. businessman). We’re talking about free movies, DVDs and CDs copied on your beloved burning software, like Nero, my hero, because I’m burning here man, oh yes, I’m on fire.
Don’t you just love to give a free gift to that special someone (yeah why are they so special) who happen to enjoy one of your favourite movies of all time (don’t say Titanic for all you bawlers out there) and did some serious kick-ass moves to your lovable music CDs ‘Can I have one, please, please, can I have one’. Will you look at that face (like I can really see it), can you ever say no to a face like that (of course you can), go on, give them a burned CD or DVD.
Have I distracted you long enough, did I make you ‘feel good’ like James Brown. Well now for the big part; there’s a lot of burning here believe me. The US Congress are looking to ‘possibly’ pass anti-piracy laws. The US is like the King and Queen on the world block, and if they do it, imagine what the world could do. In other words, watch out all you burners out there because the fire department has just received a 911/000 and is going to put you out.
Could you just believe peoples’ reactions. Merely mentioning ‘Anti-Piracy Laws’ to people in congress/parliament and to people on the street. There would be this awkward silence with a sly look on their faces, together with a ‘joker-style’ grin from ear-to-ear. Then comes the chuckle, then the roar of laughter, followed by a sarcastic blurt of ‘good luck’. People would surely think it is a joke, as if, not to go there. People just love their burning, ‘burn baby burn’; can you here that tune ringing in you ear. Burning is like loving your baby, and burning is your baby. No sleeping for this baby, it’s on fire (better call the fire department again). First there was Napster, now what next: no, no, no, not YouTube. I’m saying a prayer right now, I’m down on my knees, ‘God, don’t let ‘em take my baby YouTube away’.
So what if they actually did it, you know, the joke becomes a reality and Anti-Piracy laws come into effect. Well firstly that awkward silence will be present again, but much longer, much, much longer, with the statement: ‘I can’t believe they actually did it’, almost like Fabio in the ‘I can’t believe it’s not butter’ advertisement. They’ll all be wearing a stunned mullet look (yes you are a fish, bad luck). One thing is for sure, in Australia, whose pretty laid back as the ‘lucky country’, ‘you feeling lucky, punk’, this would surely make them hit the streets in protest (go Australia, that‘s one small step for man), with burners in hand (those poor, nice computers), all burning it up: ‘take that, and that, and that’.
