    Downloading episodes because I can't afford the dvd sets at the moment. http://www.megauploadagora.com.br/

    And some episodes of true blood are easier to watch if i download them rather than watch via streaming. :/

    What did you need?

    And if you get the standard episodes, they're about 1.80 each, same as a music video.

    Hi, Ky.

    Maybe I'm just an iTunes addict? Lol. But if I can get them on the 'net with subtitles, if the DVDs are unvaible yet, like the rest of Glee so far, I'd sooner do that.

    Oh well, if you need subtitles, then of course, get them from a proper source or whatever. lol. I've bought nearly a whole season of Hannah Montana from itunes before, so it's not like I never buy from there. It's just in this case, I don't want to, if i get the box set later on.

    I just finished downloading like 30 episodes of various anime that I need to catch up on. Of course those aren't really available via anything else but streaming and my laptop doesn't like to stream, so...

    Sometimes being hard of hearing means limited options. Like the cinema, subtitled films are always on at a ridiculous time!

    Oh yeah, same when you have 3d and 2d films, and the 2d is always on either early morning ,or late at night. I HATE 3d! Well, unless it's a really big movie. Like Harry Potter. But even that wasn't worth seeing it in 3d. :/

    Okay so maybe not entirely the same thing, but similar. haha

    I manage, but it would be nice to have more options as to subtitles, y'know?

    Completely unrelated to anything, I just want to say that I really don't want to go to Reading Poetry today. Am going to, of course, I just don't feel like it.

    Also, Ari, how are you on the 3 Act Structure?

    I completely disregard the existence of the 3 Act Structure during my writing process.

    Oh. 'Cause Kat's reading the first person version of Suns and Stars 'cause I need advice, and the 3 Act Structure is one of my weakest points.

    But if you want, you can join in.

    I'd be willing to read it, but I wouldn't be able to tell you anything about the structure. It's not something I pay attention to.

    OK. I also want advice on the structure of the scenes - how they end, scene breaks, stuff like that - pacing and character motivation.

    If you're interested (it's unfinished by the way) PM me your email address.

    Lisa, do you want me to correct any spelling errors, or just note it?
