“Why, why, why, why, why is it, that most artists who are against file sharing, are artists you wouldn’t wanna their shit for free in the first place huh?”

THE JOE THE PLUNGER MANIFESTO
File sharing & illegal downloading
As per usual, I am not here to make an elaborate point of view on the pros and cons of the file sharing on going dilemma, just put my plunger into it, and let the shit run free. So to me file sharing has the same problem as smoking Marijuana, I know its illegal, but… fuck you I wont stop doing it.
I am an old fucker, therefore I come from the ‘mixtape’ tradition of doing things, because I was poor and still am, so file sharing is just a move with the times way of doing things. Times are hard for everyone, so if the movie executives or great lords of the record industry cannot afford to buy a new latest model yacht, well fuck’em, because that’s what boils down too in the end of the day. They don’t give two shits about no one but themselves. They all sound like Mitt Romney, when they talk about the new artist, or the new actor, or the children under age and under paid in some factory packaging the stuff, as if they really care for them. They don’t, all they want is profit, and anything that cut in a way of profit, it’s a threat, and needs to be eliminated, well guess what? Times have changed so deal with it cock suckers.
I once saw a stand up comedian talking about it’s ok to eat meat as long as you eat meat from animals that commit suicide. If I was only to download music/movies from artists that are already dead, do you think the federation that makes these rules would be OK with it. Of course not, so there you have it, their argument on the new artist concern goes out of the window. The real working artist that is prepared to work for its art sees the benefits out of file sharing, it’s the shithead greedy fucker with no talent who is concern about.
A great deal of musicians who are not afraid of working for what they get, express their support for file sharing because that means selling more tickets for the concerts. Unless you are prick like Kirk Hammett of shit band Metalica, who not very long ago had the audacity the tell Rolling Stone magazine that; ‘We would like to tour less but can’t afford to live out of the royalties anymore…’. Oh bless your poor little heart. How I’d love to punch this pussy looking dickhead in the fucking face. So let me get my head around this; Last Metalica album went platinum 5 times, Metalica’s last world tour grossed something like 218 million, Kirk’s personal fortune is of 70 million, and Metalica can’t afford to stop touring? Please people, forget about Greece, Spain & Portugal bailout, lets all get some money together and bailout a bunch of talentless alcoholics headbangers, because they are in need, and maybe that way they can stop putting crap records out. I would download their music on principle if that racket was any good, but lucky for them they fucking suck, so I don’t want that pile of sonic pollution near my collection.
Metalica also showed in the past their disapproval towards file sharing, and they are not alone, as there are more talentless freaks to join the rooster, enters Elton John. When this old queen is not throwing punches at Madonna for being as shit as he is, he likes to go all menstrual about file sharing, another artist who is wasting his time as I hardly see him being affected by it, if you take into account has been at least 50 years since the last time he had a decent record out.
This list could not be complete unless we had some self-centered, head up his ass idiot like Bono to trow his weight around. The Messiah of Rock’n'Roll, who want to save the world with your wallet and leave his 600 million fortune out of it. Who the fuck is he trying to compete moneywise, the Vatican? The good old Live Aid was good for something after all, not much for Africa though, Africa still broke and starving as fuck, but not you Jesus Bono. Tell me something fuckface, when was the last time U2 had a good record out? Yes I know Bono, you are concern about the new artist, so much so, that your band keeps putting out the same reductant crap sound over and over again, crowding the market with re-releases, more and more expensive each time, you are all heart. You too pal don’t bother worry about illegal downloads, your records have been shite for the best part of 25 years.
Oh Sheryl Crow! Yes she needs to join the party. Darling, keep wiping your ass with one square of tissue then you can stink as much as your entire back catalogue… And then you have a load of nobodies making their voice heard like Lilly Allen, Gary Barlow or James Cunt (whatever his surname is). But the problem here is different, they really suck and they know it, so the only way to have people talking about them is by talking shit so people take notice on who they are. Still no matter how much noise you make, I still think you guys are crap, your records stink, and even if you paid me I wouldn’t want your music in my house, not fuck you and get lost.
And I only touched the tip of the iceberg here, there are more people to add here but fuck’em, I have better things to do they mention every dickhead in the music industry, recording artists or otherwise, to hell with them all, they are filthy rich and I am a broke ass punk.
One more last thing on the music, so we can move on onto something else, take a look at The Beatles back catalogue; Half the band is dead, and the person making the most money out of it is Yoko Ono???? Hello???? too fucking right I am downloading everything for free on principle. Sue me or blow me you no talent bitch.
Yet again as usual, I am rambling a whole lotta of nonsense, in every direction, making no sense at all, but hey, thats the way I like it, so stick with, after all I could easily put some links of some really good articles on the subject, but I rather have you here wasting your time with me, besides, you know how to do a google if you really want facts. I don’t do facts, I just plunge shit out, you know that so don’t complain about the stink. With that out-of-the-way, lets move on.
Hollywood and the movie industry in general are up in arms over file sharing too, something to do with the fact not much people are prepared to pay 50 or 60$ for a movie, soda & popcorn (if you don’t get laid at the end of that date, that’s what I call a crap investment). So poor old darling stars can no longer afford yet another mansion, swimming pool in the shape of a dick with twin testicular jacuzzies or organic fair trade crystal meth drug habits. But fuck me sideways, what do you expect, do we really need yet another Batman, Spiderman, or another remake of a movie that was crap on the first run???? Fuck you buddy, times are hard to pay for crap. So yes people are stealing and so am I, because that’s what comes down to, you sell disposable shit to people for a profit, and people take notice and wont pay for it, as simple as that.
In the end of the day, I too feel sorry for the honest, real artist, because they get affected more by competing with the so-called big names of the entertainment industry then from file sharing. Real artists they want to be recognise for their talent, and not for making a fortune out of their lack of it (yes Lindsay Lohan you talentless crack head I am talking about you).
Then you have computer games at 100$ a pack, horrendously overpriced software, windows and apples repackaging of the same old shit, not to mention the 349 thousand new pointless new recording stars that come out of stupid reality TV shows every 3 months, come on people, lets all get a new part-time job, just so we can afford to consume all this crap, you do that, as for me, I rather do a Robin Hood and steal what I can online or otherwise, because if you think I am here to pay for Nicky Minaj look like something my cat just trow up, or some celeb to buy an exotic brown baby because it matches with the color of her/his handbag, or Kanye West to act like a moron that he is, fuck you, nope, I steal… And so should you, like the great philosopher once said; ‘Steal bread, you’re a thief… steal a million, you’re a baron… Download of the internet and pay for it, you’re a fucking idiot, and you deserve to be ripped off’.
