I tried, I really did....

Prices for movies are still ridiculous! Now I see creating torrents as a community service. Fuck the establishment!

Since the corps finally came to the party with CDN services and settop boxes to stream the media, they have started a model that resembles the old video rental stores, or subscriptions that mimic cable TV services.  I don't like them but I am old and set in my ways, which were cemented in place when my family bought our second VCR ;)

LOLOL..... It's funny you've said that... I literally grew up in both VCR and the torrent age. There's something about the 80s were many of us get stuck. Hence P2P was my vain/addiction/way of internet life, whatever you want to call it. As streaming became more of a convenience than using torrents, I've tried to do the right thing. But the quality of movies have tanked. They often don't have the movies people REALLY wanted to see; and the large studios refuse to put their best movies on streaming, 'cause they still want to charge you $20 or more to digitally buy it. Nobody has this kind of money anymore. It may sound cheap to them, but it's a lot to most of us. Nobody told them to give those actors exorbitant amount of salaries, then try to push it off on the consumer/fans.
