I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THIS "NO cANADIAN RIGHTS" BUSINESS ! 

 

AND YOU ALL KNOW I'M SERIOUS BECAUSE I'M WRITING THIS IN BLOCK CAPTIALS ! AND BOLD ! ! WITH LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS !!! 

 

DID I SAY %$#@*&**?*^%$$#@!!!!  WHAT THE F R I G  IS GOING ON !!!!

 

 Well, that was fun. Everyone should do that once in a while.

 

Ok, I was thinking of watching Stagecoach. I'm not much of a John fan, neither Wayne nor Ford. But I kind of like this 1939 Western, it's much more entertaining than many of Ford's later Westerns (to me), and it's got Claire Trevor. Plus, I have a special fondness for it because it was studied in a film class I took. (Although of course I'd seen it before the film class screening.)

 

Anyway... f r i g, aaargh, s h i t e,  $%&*#?!@$#!  It's not being aired in Canada ! Instead they're showing some boring war movie - Back to Bataan.  Ok, ok, maybe it's good, and I respect Edward Dmytryk (except I always have to look up how to spell his name.)

But I'm not much of a fan of war movies, and anyway, I wanted Stagecoach.

 

Why the f r i g  are there all these issues around "rights" in Canada? And it seems to be getting worse, not better. Oh, why can't we all just get along? Where's the humanity in the world today?

 

I think I've lost it.

 

(ps  Did I say  "&%$#@#?!&*!@& *   ?  )

 

Also...does the auto censor edit everything ? Testing...damn hell egad sacrebleu

Here we go savilng tens of BILLIONS of dollars a year buying prescription drugs from Canadian pharmacies, and we won't even let them watch STAGECOACH???  What's going on here???

 

I know if I were Canadian, I'd be grumbling almost as much as the guy whose boss wouldn't spring for genuine Scot paper towels!

Oh, what does Lionel Barrymore  I mean Edward Arnold know about the endless suffering of humankind? Or at least, Canadiankind?

Or Bill the Cat, for that matter?

 

Nobody who does not live north of the 49th parallel can have any conception of the profound existential angst we experience up here, when we are arbitrarily, insensitively, unjustly, deprived of the films we have a basic human right to watch, even as our American neighbours enjoy such rights.

 

I am thinking of taking this up with our prime minister, Stephen Harper. Apparently he now has a Twitter account or a Facebook wall, or something, and he graciously invites the good citizens of Canada to communicate with him this way.

I'll whip off a Twitter comment to him, alerting him to this ongoing travesty of justice, and shirley he will make it all right. I'm sure a quick text (nobody phones anymore, right?) to Mr. Obama will settle everybody's hash.

 

Aarghaarghaargh...it's just annoying. It's the principle of the thing.

All y'all Canadians that need TCM's fine filmage can just pack it up and move on down here to Florida where we've got plenty of room for Moose Heads. Here is a typical 1 bedroom, outdoor garden bathtub slum dog special you can have for just 6 easy payments of..

The indignity of rights issues affects Canadians on the internet, as well.

 

On numerous occasions lately I have sat down and been ready to watch a film or old television show on a web site only to be informed by that web site that it doesn't have the rights to show it in my country (ie Canada).

 

AAARGH!!!

 

Hey, that felt good. Think I'll do it again.

 

AAARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I have to tell you that putting it in bold type and adding even more exclamation points makes it feel even better.

 

At least this is something that the copyright Gods can't take away from Canadian viewers: the right to AAARGH! when they are denied access to a movie.

 

Still, I hope to see the day when I can do a little less aaarghing and a little more watching.

I lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast years ago working in a world class

casino as a floor man and pit boss.

 

Canadians flocked down there, like their geese on our golf courses, and

threw money at us.

 

They, like others, loved to gamble, drink and have a good time. We

loved to see them because they spent their money and enjoyed what

we had to offer.

Hey, at least you get TCM... I don't even have cable TV.

 

If I see something listed on TCM that everyone is talking about, I just borrow it from the library. I'm sure STAGECOACH is available.

 

Now, if I were paying for speshel TV and not getting it, it would be worth reconsidering.

OR, you could always move to the American Southwest...

...and where we don't need to close-in our swimming pools like that in order to keep all the freakin' mosquitoes and other assorted blood-sucking insects at bay while lounging outside!

 

(...and don't EVEN get me started about all that humidity there in the Southeast EITHER!!!!)  ;)

Yes like that lol. Seriously though, I do sympathize that you are unable to see everything that is listed on the TCM schedule. Must be very frustrating, especially when you are looking forward to a specific film.

Well Edith, how about every time those people down in Atlanta do this to ya up there, you just pop that little DVD of "49th Parallel" in the machine and watch THAT instead?!

 

(...'cause I don't know about YOU, but I can't get enough of that ending scene in this flick where good ol' Canadian Raymond Massey beats the ever lovin' crap out'a that Nazi Eric Portman inside that boxcar!!!) ;)
