Private showings... LOLOLOL. Man that's hysterical. I wouldn't go to that if my local pool room offered at a time that was convenient for me.

I want to buy a copy and own it.

The pursuit cost him opportunities to earn a living elsewhere, no?

I'd question how he could have spent that little.

Yeah. I sure would go to your room to see it either!

At 4 hrs, I would have to break viewing up into multiple sittings.

His approach actually makes sense to me.

Everyone has already stated he won't make much money here if he puts it on Youtube or sells DVDs. We know that. And selling the rights directly doesn't make him much either. Let's assume that he makes 10K either way. So what he has doesn't hold huge traditional market value.

So why sell? If you owned a car that you spent your entire life restoring and someone offered you next to nothing for it, wouldn't you rather just keep it? Well, John has spent his life in a quest to achieve a world record on camera. I don't blame him for not wanting to disperse it for pennies. I believe this is the same reason that Jay hasn't released Earl's 10 rack run for the million (which I would LOVE to see, Jay, PM me if I could ever do a 'private showing'!).

In the meantime, if he creates a tour from city to city and conducts 'tours' of his run in person, I see him filling up rooms. A chance to spend the afternoon with a US Open champion walking you through a record breaking straight pool run and doing Q&As? I'd support that. Not sure how big the groups would be, but if it was 10-20 people I'd chip in $1-200. I'd guarantee I'd learn something from that session and if I could have a good time, witness a record run, meet some friends, and pick up a few nuggets, for me that's worth taking a day off work.

Even if most people aren't interested that's fine with him. As long as he gets enough people in every city for him to tour the country and use this as a draw, why wouldn't he? Maybe he can't pull it off, but at least it's a good try.

How are you going to break it up into multiple sittings when you aren't allowed to leave until it's over.

But really, I was referring to what version of purchasing would be of value to me.

If I had to sit thru 4 hrs of a pool vid, I'd pay double an hour into it, just to get out of the remainder.

I'd need my own copy, to start and stop as I see fit.

On a lighter note, there's a sure-fire ancillary revenue-generating opportunity for AZB itself in all this:

The site owners could eventually compile and sell to worldwide universities, the entire contents of the "Mr 600" thread (presently tallying in excess of 1,255 comments and 46,000 views) and the three or four other 626-related threads.

There's hardly a category in university catalogs (drama, sociology, asymmetrical warfare, entrepreneurial business, abnormal psychology, sports, conspiracy histories, secret societies, novel writing, etc.) whose professors and students wouldn't find the material appealing and applicable to decades of ongoing research and Master/Doctoral programs.

Oh no. I was looking forward to owning the DVD. Isn't there a way to make a DVD which can't be copied?

Many find the appalling appealing lately, so there is no dichotomy. And probably no Deuteronomy either.
