Agreed... The adult industry is a huge trendsetter in both the entertainment industry and the internet industry. If you want to see what the newest tricks of the trade are on websites, surf porn.

That "Pirates" porno was the biggest selling one last year. BIG budget on that one. And I think another connection is the big screen concert films and opera performances we're seeing now. With the Stones and U2 and such.

Those are going to be a great way for people to see a concert without shelling out huge bucks for it.

And could it be that people might finally be getting tired of watching things on tiny screens? ;)

Have you noticed that for every trend there's an opposite trend that benefits?

"Everyone only wants tiny bite-sized TV from YouTube"
True, but giant 100-hour-long dramas (24, Lost, Sopranos) are more popular than ever.

"Everyone is driving gig gas-guzzling SUVs"
True, but notice the hybrid Prius, Mini Cooper, and Smart cars.

"Death of the album. It's only songs, now."
Maybe this will re-invigorate the long concept album?
