Nick & Jessica. RIP.
just wanted to put it out there :)

the MPAA reached an agreement with Bittorrent.com to remove its links to movie torrents. hmm. i dunno what to think of this. a) it's damn frustrating seeing the MPAA rear it's ugly head in this manner, b) thanks to Bram Cohen for caving in; i'm sure there was a tremendous amount of pressure put on him but, if he'd wanted to, legally, he could've fought them longer, but finally, this tops it off -- check out this hilarious quote:
The agreement requires 30-year-old software designer Bram Cohen to remove links to pirated versions of movies from his Web site, bittorrent.com, effectively frustrating people who search for illegal copies of films.
uh... "effectively frustrating people who search for illegal copies of films"?? okay...if you say so :)

Alias is cancelled...
i've only watched Season 1 so i have no idea what the latter seasons were like, and i know Jennifer was leaving, but they did seem to have figured out a good plan for the coming seasons. i'm not used to seeing great shows -that actually get huge ratings- get cancelled like that. i guess ABC, or maybe JJ Abrams, do have some dignity. at the very least, it's nice to see some people in Hollywood still have some respect.
