Not so fast, Qwikster.

Netflix canceled their Qwikster idea under two premises:

1. Qwikster should be the name of a chocolate milk, and sold to
Nestle. Who is probably also owned by Rupert Murdoch. He owns everything. It’s not an empire, but more like a Kingdom. Ok, same thing. Both may include the intimidation or murder of serfs who speak too freely. I digress. Back to Qwikster.

2. For two additional dollars, yes, eight quarters, nobody wants to receive mail with a DVD inside anymore. AOL 3.0’s outmoded business model? To hell with that. We’re like digital Salmon, we thrive in the stream…

Well, except for the 920 Eisenhower-era people who still read physical newspapers… with fine-print font. Old person + Poor Vision should not equal micro-font. Blogs would be a perfect match for the advanced of age, though the computer could become a new opposition.

About Travanti

I'm an actor, satirist (read that slowly, or you could get the wrong idea), comedic writer (contingent upon who finds my work funny), & macro/microcosmic social commentator. An alum of the University of Louisville, and Syracuse University (Newhouse Television Radio & Film M.S.)... aren't I being shockingly cavalier about it all?

  1. I was very pleased to find this web-site.I wished to thanks in your time for this glorious read!! I positively enjoying each little bit of it and I’ve you bookmarked to check out new stuff you weblog post.

  2. There may be noticeably a bundle to learn about this. I assume you made certain good points in options also.

  3. I?m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a weblog that?s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your thought is excellent; the problem is one thing that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing referring to this.

  4. Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment. Is there any way you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    • That might be something you’d want to deselect in your options, there’s nothing that I can do on my end unfortunately. Thank you for reading!
