Movie Entertainment On Tap With UTube. Pass The Popcorn!

Hi Peeps,

.

I am up very early again this morning, as the strength of the sun pressing through the bedroom curtains was too alluring to be ignored for very long.

.

It is so beautiful today, with birds singing and the sky so blue.

It may only be a lowly Wednesday but it is a fine one.

I think it may be time to enjoy another barbecue and, as it happens, we have some lovely Aberdeen Angus beefburgers just waiting in the fridge, along with plenty of cold beer to accompany them perfectly.

.

Yes, I know that we don’t drink alcohol now during the week, but we do have it with Chinese meals or barbies or parties.

Some occasions are special and there is no point in reducing the pleasure of them in any way.

But generally we are very, very good….Honest!

.

The other great pleasure for us is going out in the little car for a quick tool around.

It is a wonderful thing to feel the wind and the sun that way, although when you pass some of the fields you can get a bit too much of the authentic farm experience!

Small sports cars are actually not very practical, what with only two seats and a tiny boot, but at our time of life it is a pleasure to be a bit daft because of the fun of it all.

Definitely a special pleasure….but of course no alcohol with that particular one!

.

Last night was interesting, we found out that you can already watch some complete films on UTube for free.

Granted the one we started to watch was a bit 1980’s and we soon got bored and switched it off….but….it seems that times they are a-changing.

.

I have read reports that  UTube has had a good idea.

They are signing deals with major distributors and filmmakers such as Sony Pictures Entertainment and Warner Bros in order to begin supplying a movies-on-demand video film service..

.

Others like Fox and Walt Disney are hanging fire and keeping a watching brief.

They prefer to see how the service develops before committing themselves to the change.

I think that the appeal must be quite strong in an industry where so much possible revenue is diverted by movies being pirated.

.

It is reported that some of the independent studios, such as Lionsgate are also getting ready to sign up to the UTube proposals.

.

Of course they are not doing this for charitable reasons, so we would have to pay for the films in much the same as for Netflix etc., and at much the same cost.

However it would seem that newly released films will be available within weeks, if not a couple of days, for those who find this idea appealing.

.

My goodness, things do happen a-pace these days.

Change is always in the air, it’s hard to keep up with it all.

.

Have a cinematic one today,

LOL,

J,x

    hi Jackie,
    2 more days to go!

    I love netflix. totally changed my idea of TV watching, so much so that i’m cancelling my cable connection. It saves time b/c you watch it at the time you want while doing other things, I have access to neat shows that aren’t airing in Canada and i have a chance to revisit some old ones that cant be rented out anymore.

    YouTube has always had movies on in parts and uploaded by users, not very “legal”, but had it developed a mechanism a few years back to pay like netflix for full streams, e-piracy may have had an ending to its complicated story. I still see users posting great videos disguised under different names, and it takes some research to find the parts, but for a good movie i’m willing to do the homework (especially since Netflix Canada still doesn’t carry a very wide variety like their US counterparts).

    What are you reading these days ?
    hope the weather is great for the UK’s upcoming festivity 😉

      Greetings dear girl,
      Nice to hear from you,
      .
      Apparently the weather may change and bring heavy rain so that the whole wedding thing will need to be done with umbrellas….or…..it will continue to be warm and sunny and will go wonderfully because of it.
      Weather forecasters….you cannot kill them and you cannot eat them!

      Generally things are going well here and everyone is pleased to get another day off work, except for people like me of course.
      The only downside to having so much free time is that you need to be older than you want to be in order to get it.
      But life is never perfect is it.
      .
      Yes, it is great the way entertainment is changing, everything is getting so convenient.
      It is hard to believe that we (I) ever lived in a time where there were no televisions and not many people had a phone….no wonder I love reading so much.
      At the moment I am just reading stuff from the library, amusing enough at the time, but nothing I even remember afterwards.
      But hey, it keeps me off the streets!
      .
      I hope that you are enjoying the new job and that your life is charmed.
      LOL,
      J,
