Ugh, Tribeca Film Festival again, American Express Ads, and at the same time as the iPad. Now if you buy a pirated copy of a movie debuting at Tribeca and watch it on the iPad that you purchased on Credit with your Amex – well then you’re as American as Apple Pie (no pun intended).

If you have an American Express Card – you’re in at the advance window. But surprise. I’d never give American Express another penny of my personal money again to see some over-hyped boring films. Who has the time to go to the movies more than once in a week anyway unless you’re bored with your iPad?

Kind of how I feel about Apple though and I was always told – for everyone that writes – multiply it by 500. But why would you want to see Shrek 10 or whatever, or 14 films from ESPN, etc. I’m glad to say I’ve NEVER once attended probably because it’s just annoying. But more than anything – I think it’s all hype.

Look Guys, just remember that American Express will RUIN YOUR CREDIT until you totally pay off every penny. That’s what you’re supporting when you go to the Tribeca Film Festival. Now, I’m in the minority who worked through Debt Management and paid down all my credit cards from $23K plus. But AMEX reported me as late for 4 1/2 years despite paying them every month.

For a film about what??? Eliot Spitzer????? Give me a break. And people will line up and waste a beautiful afternoon for that? Spitzer for Senate NOW! I mean, why not.

Or you can click this baby and see a video from the Clash.
