I share that sentiment. Also, this.

Your voice is delightful, and I especially like your Deathcab cover.

Keep on rockin'.

Market forces are powerful and should be respected. I am of the philosophy that if media conglomerates (or any company, for that matter) want to stifle innovation and legislate their way into control of the market in order to protect their aging business model, then they deserve to lose revenue and market share to competitors who better understand the needs of the consumer and how to best serve them. That is what a market economy is all about, after all.

Personally, if a media company doesn't have their act together and won't release media using modern streaming distribution technology (which is no longer new, mind you), it gets pirated. If they can't figure out how to serve it to me at a reasonable price in a highly-available format, I'm going to take it from them illegitimately. If it isn't on Netflix, I'm sure it's on ThePirateBay, and I have no problem going there to get it. End of story.

I probably know more about Paris Hilton's nether regions than I do web development. I was surprised I stumbled upon a proper diagnosis so quickly.

I think this is the problem. For confirmation, I looked at the source (pastebin) for this rendered page, and the first example shows them all on separate lines with no format tags separating them other than regular line breaks, and the second example is separated by <p>aragraph tags.

I'll buy that for a dollar.

In a flourish of irony and Shyamalanian Twistery, I say we create a political party for people who hate political parties. What will we call it?
