so missjunebug is running out of space on her hard drive and that makes her very, very sad. Yes, she writes a few (thousand) things, stores a kagillion pics on Picasa, has the usual assortment of listenable tunes on her iTunes, but she’s finally figured out (duh) where the problem lies: movies, too many of them, and by too many missjunebug means 8.
Did you know that the average movie downloaded from iTunes for the tiny sum of say $9.99 to $14.99 takes up over 1Gigabyte of hard disk drive space? Her poor little pc only has 69G and now sadly only 12 or so remain. It needs some breathing room!!!!
missjunebug embarked upon a mission to clean up her drive of extraneous movie matter by burning DVDs with the already viewed 2-times flicks. Cool. Make a playlist. Stick in the DVD. Burn baby burn!
It was the perfect storm of a plan. She deleted the movies, freed up the space, and relaxed. That is until she tried to playback the ripped DVD in iTunes. Yes, she knows there’s a warning that the DVD will not play on other players, but it’s supposed to play on the iTunes player, n’est-ce pas?
Non. Not even close. Well maybe sorta close. She played the ripped movie Stage Beauty and watched Claire Danes stop and start and stutter until mjb just couldn’t stand it any longer. Yes, the movie was there in picture and sound but it was like watching a car on the freeway just before it runs out of gas. Stop. Start. Stutter. Shudder. Shut Up!
This is not exactly what missjunebug had in mind. Then she thought about it for a while and realized she would pay that much to buy tickets to a movie at a theater she’d only ever see once, so what’s the biggie? Life’s too short to fret about imperfect copies of imperfect movies that have been viewed perfectly a couple of times already anyway. And now she’s got mass space on her hard drive, plenty of stretching room for all those little programs and files.
Is Stage Beauty worth seeing more than twice? Maybe but missjunebug has moved on to her recent download of Season One of Gossip Girl. She’s not anything if not a little bug of eclectic tastes! She has to thank ElderJB for this video tip.
Chuck Bass is the new Tim Riggins.
