Streaming Videos

Well, I thought I would give my opinion on this new trend. Seems now, everyone wants to stream videos to their phones and mobile devices. I don't know, maybe I am old fashioned, but I don't like it that now every video has to be streamed in. I'd much rather have the DVDs on my shelf in physical form. Digital is nice for some things, but not videos! I want to be able to watch the video anywhere I want to, without worrying about it accidentally getting erased from my mobile device. I can always copy any DVD that goes bad, no problem, and it comes out as good as new again. But why should I pay for a video every time I want to see it streamed into a mobile device? That's one of the reasons I haven't gone for this fad. I found the entire series of Fat Albert available on Amazon, but only in digital form. I asked them if one could save each episode onto their computer or a DVD, and they said no, the recordings are not set up that way. So I said fuck it!! And I am NOT going to pay $1.99 each time I want to see the episodes I want to see! I'd rather be able to download them, save them onto my computer and then put them on a disk. I'd much rather have that!

And here's another thing; I don't have a smartphone! Or an iPhone! And I don't want one either!! I have a portable DVD player, and I am happy with it! I don't have to pay $100 or more each month just to keep it running, I can view a video any time I want to, even if I don't have any money, I don't have to have the wi-fi on just to view the video I feel like seeing, and I can watch any movie or TV show I want to as many times as I want to and not have to pay for the same movie or video each time I want to see it. For those reasons, I don't see the point in live streaming. I don't know why, for the life of me, anyone thinks streaming videos to their mobile device is better than just sticking a DVD into the player and playing it. Or keeping a cool wide selection of DVDs on their video shelf. There's no point to it. And mobile devices can malfunction, and people lose all their data. There goes your streamed videos! And you have to pay the money again to get it back!

Torrents now is the same way. I remember I downloaded almost the entire collection of videos of Arthur C. Clarke's documentaries. Some of them took days to download! And they were a total and absolute bear to convert to a format that I could put onto a DVD. I did manage it though! I could try that again with Fat Albert, we can see.

Anyways, in other news, I think that girl has me on ignore now. The girl who gets all angry when people don't like Paula Yates. Her name is Jannah. I say GOOD!! Please, keep me on ignore. I was going to suggest it anyways the next time I saw her! Probably best for both of us if we are ignoring each other. Because I am always going to be who I am, and she cannot stop that, and I don't like Paula. I never did and I never will. And Jannah's blood pressure is just going to go up every time I don't say Paula is pretty, or I give any other opinion I may have about her. I don't want her to explode! So yes, it's best we have each other on ignore. I was going to tell her if she doesn't put me on ignore, I'll put her on ignore. LOL! I'm glad one of us did it first! hehehe!
