What obsession looks like

The still cap above is from 2003's Control Factor. I just stumbled across it on a private torrent site I belong to. If you lived through 2003 you know there is a 99.9% chance that Elizabeth Berkley is wearing some sort of long "boot-cut" pants with this fab leather jacket. I know intellectually that the chance for visible bootage in this movie is right about .01%(yes, 2003 was just that bad). If I download this movie I am certain to be disappointed.  Experience suggests that if I do download it, when I finally retrieve it from my seedbox, I'll have forgotten why I got it in the first place and it will clutter up a hard-drive until the end of time. Despite having gone through this literally 1000's of times, I CANNOT ignore Liz Berkley in a Sci-Fi-y leather jacket. It's like a sickness.

Of course, my obsessive need to tell people about it is a different kind of mania.


**************************
Addendum a few hours later:
Since I made such a big deal about it, I decided to get it out of the way. Those are more flares than boot-cuts, but this what I expected.

If the download link is dead, please use the comment box to alert me and I'll try to re-up it.

I'm sure I'm going to regret this, but for now I'm not moderating the comments. I have little doubt that horrid spam-bots will force me to change this policy, but for now.....
