Let's talk about them. Which have you seen best/worst? Ever buy any?

    you won't be disappointed with what i have to say. if you look for dvds or game cartridges, you can get the right fix at eBay. those money grubbers will do anything to get cash from anyone. the last time i went there, i ordered a copy of pokemon firered. the cartridge was black (it's supposed to be red) and i noticed some bugs in the game. perhaps it was a bootleg or an early version of the game. either way, don't go to eBay to buy dvds or games

      A small handful. I usually get my bootlegs through downloading means but I have bought a couple;

      on cd The Who Live at the Filmore 1968 which was actually a grey area cd cause it was from Italy where the title was a legal release (Italy can legaly release bootleg recordings 20 years old and older) and Pink Floyd live in Hamilton 1975.

      On vinyl a 2 lp live compilation of Doors stuff and a 2 lp Who rarities comp called Who's Zoo.

        We have 2 bootleg tv shows on DVD. Both of them are of VHS quality. Doesn't bother me much, but I first thought they would be in better quality.

          I've bought a couple of bootleg music videos too, a store around here sells them for five dollars a piece. I usually don't see much that great but occassionaly a good title shows up. My favorite find was Iggy Pop Live at Much Music 1993.

            My dad always buys bootlegs of movies fresh into theaters....
            :mad:
            I hate bootlegs...

            I probably would've liked Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer if it wasn't on such a shitty bootleg by some dude with a video camera.
            Hell, almost ALL of the DVDs we have are fucking bootlegs!!

            How bout you get off your lazy ass and go to the fucking movie theaters to see them!! It's actually cheaper than some awful bootleg piece of shit!!!!!

              Yeah, those kind of bootlegs I can't get with, only ones of live/ rare/ out of print music stuff.

              When I want to see a new movie cheap I wait for it to get the rep theatre where I can see a flick for as little as three bucks or I wait to rent it.

                I avoid them, they're dark, hazy, people sometimes get in front of the screen, sometimes people's coughs and laughs make you miss something, and there's no other features. (duh)

                  In Elizabeth, Loews Theater charges $8.50 for an adult ticket. In Harlem, bootlegs are $3.00 (Last time I was there, anyway).
                  It is better to be hated for standing by your beliefs than it is to be loved for biting your tongue.
                  Some call it obsession, some call it a hobby... I call it personality.
