Implied Dissent

Thursday, July 15, 2004

I have been very very delinquent in posting. Bad Penny. Bad.

As your resident film commentator, I take a moment to commemorate the retirement of Jack Velenti, the head of the Motion Picture Association of America and share with you a few gems:

"I say to you that the VCR is to the American film producer and the American public as the Boston strangler is to the woman home alone."

"If you can't protect that which you own, then you don't own anything."

"So long as people refuse to be cabinned and confined in their home day after day, night after night, so long as you provide customers with an epic viewing experience they cannot duplicate in their homes, so long as each new generation of filmmakers enlarges and beautifies the art of visual story telling, then so long will we travel that sweet road that leads to success."
