    Hell.
    Nasty Old People, a Swedish movie, was just released in a peculiar way, through torrents exclusively. TPB, the infamous pirate torrent website, has got a new banner for it's frontpage, displaying an old person playing a horn.

    Here's the description, copied from the tracker:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    In case you didn't read that, the site is at http://www.nastyoldpeople.org. I can't tell you what it's about, but it's got a ton of seeders and, from the trailer, which includes a dildo, it's pretty profane.

    Here's the logo:

    Also, if this isn't relevant, I just thought you guys might want to know that some filmmakers actually want to distribute their work through torrent trackers, and mods delete this if it isn't relevant.

    i think although this is strange... the concept of the movie is useless and wasteful

    I know some people will offer torrents or free downloads of entire albums or movies for promotional purposes. Nine Inch Nails released The Slip free of cost off their site, although that wasn't quite for promotion but more so for "fuck the record companies".

    Anyway...

    That alone ruined it for me.

    Nasty Old People.
    Sounds like a bad porn movie.

    The movie really has no plot.

    You people realize TPB is really NOT going to be what it was before, yes? There are going to be a lot of serious fundamental changes made and it will likely hardly be a torrent site at that point. =\

    What on earth are you talking about?

    Also, regardless of what the movie is about or whether it is of any interest to you guys is irrelevant.

    The more musicians, movie makers, and such that offer up their works in this method the better for the cause.
