Argument Killer

Last night I entered a bar in LA and had taken approximately one sip of my drink before I found myself in the middle of a conversation on illegal file-sharing. Someone mentioned that Columbia University was named the worst movie piracy school - my friend and I looked at each other and winced (we're alums), and that's what started the conversation between the three of us. My man in LA works for a talent agency, the other guy is an actor, and I of course represented the legal element. We all began arguing our respective positions, but surprise, surprise, we suddenly found ourselves in perfect agreement: I said the words "subscription-based model!"

Any chance it was the same lawyer-frequented bar seen in "Arrested Development," 'Deliberations'?

I think they had all been reading Bob Loblaw's law blog before the conversation.

Lol, thank you for dropping that comment and sending me off on a wild Google chase to figure out what you were talking about.

Spokespeople for Apple were not immediately available for comment.

That's all well and good Gatos, but what does it have to do with Arrested Development?

Mind the topic. ;)
