The perfect shill

Hei Lun of Begging to Differ was equally unimpressed with the hidden quid pro quo connected to the free passes to see Serenity. Quoth Hei Lun:

I’m not saying that I’m highly principled and not-for-sale at any price, but it’d sure take more than $9.75 for someone to tell me what to write on this blog.

It’s not quite $9.75 in this neck of the woods (Southpoint, which I assume is the most expensive place in Durham, is $8.25 after 6 p.m., and $6.25 before 6), but, yeah, my price is a bit higher than that too. Plus I really didn’t want to drive to Raleigh during rush hour tomorrow afternoon…

I took them up on the offer, but phrased my intro to the stuff they wanted quoted in a way that made it clear what was up. I was nearly certain I would like the movie anyway (and I did), so it didn’t bother me. If it was something I was completely unfamiliar with, or had reservations about, that might have been different. I had a great time. Fair trade for me.
