Boycotts

For the next few days, I'm boycotting everything. Except the stuff I like.

What do you boycott?

I've boycotted Sony, in it's entirety.

This means I even make sure that my DVD players and drives don't use Sony pickups.

I've replaced sony headphones and my discman.

Pretty much over the past few years they have annoyed me way too much.

You didn't miss anything, trust me. I had to put up with that movie twice...honestly I'd rather watch another one of those stupid gigantic (insert animal here) marathons that sci-fi runs when they run out of stuff to air....and considering how I send many, many email complaints to them everytime they do that, you can imagine how lowly I rate Craptanic.
