DMCA Takedown notices

Disrespect to Matthew lillard and George clooney for sending me takedown notices about torrenting their crappy sophomoric drivel. i don’t normal mention things i hate(or at least i’m trying to do so less). but, for idtorrentthat we might need to make an exception. there are ways to avoid this:

used to be avoiding big releases would help but no longer

you can get VPN access. be careful who you use as they may have a policy of turning over your ip when asked. also, count on speeds being limited even though they advertise unlimited. If what you’re getting is “free” you are the product being sold

there is still usenet but it’s become much less functional in recent months. releases are becoming incomplete after a few hours because you know DMCA. try and go with a dutch server like maybe tweaknews?

remember if you do get a takedown notice with links to a site like https://www.copyrightsettlements.com/ or http://www.respectcopyrights.org/ don’t click on it! if you think life sucks when you get harassing emails and maybe a temporary suspension of internet access just know: IT WILL ONLY GET WORSE IF YOU GIVE COPYRIGHT LAWYERS ANY INFORMATION IDENTIFYING YOURSELF.

FUUCCCKKKK!!! that is all.

The Guberment’s wann take way ur internets!

CYANLIANAS is on mars or something.  So, it has befallen me the great duty to remind you all that the great Satan and card carrying socialist is trying to steal your internet and run it through the central firewall down at the polit bureau.  Or something like that.

Remember PIPA, ACTA, SOPA, and other weird political things with four-letter acronyms?   well here’s some stuff from the email google sent:

Starting December 3, the world’s governments will meet behind closed doors to discuss the future of the internet. Some governments want to use this meeting to increase censorship and regulate the Internet.

A free and open world depends on a free and open Internet. And a free and open Internet depends on you.

IDK what they’re gonna come up with next, five-letter acronyms?  six? seven?  dood we’ve gotta get up on this.  You see that IDL logo on the left?  thats not just some bullshit we put up because it looks cool…. okay maybe that was part of why we put that there but ummm…

It seems that anytime anyone tries to take a reasonable stance on the issue of copyright and how it’s original intent has been distorted by corporate interests, it gets buried.

Anyway, expect to continue to see lots more posts and annoying ass spam on your facebook and shit as this whole thing progresses all over again.  The Illuminati don’t take the holidays off from oppressing us, so, we don’t take them off to stop bitching about it.

WOOT! wOOT! PRRrrrrr #freeandopen

Untold History of the United States

We’re all watching Homeland and The Walking Dead. But in case you haven’t noticed, I’m all about letting you, dear reader, know about interesting things you haven’t seen or heard of, yet.

Oliver Stone’s new project, The Untold History of the United States, is a ten hour long documentary about the history of these United States.  It’s not something that pretends to be anything else, and, that’s what i like most.  Expect to sit and hear Mr. Stone narrate over old black and white video and photos.  It’s kind of like how PBS or History channel used to be, in the before time long long ago.  It will only be as exciting as a great lecture on history can be, which I find extremely stimulating.

There is no 3D dinosaur killing robots.  No actors doing historical reenactment to make history more exciting.  If the story of the world being told by an old man in a way that makes people appear to be a little bit more complicated than two dimensional cardboard cutouts cannot hold your attention, then you are what is wrong with the world.

taco, out.

 

EDIT (11-22-12)

Some criticism of the series has surfaced.  I guess we can’t expect too much from the maker of such historically perfeck films as JFK or Natural Born Killers.  I’m still trying to watch the whole series anyway.  i like it.  noone seems to be capping and releasing it much but that’s sure to change.  i mean, they gotta release it on DVD and then that’s bound to get ripped, amiright? hope so…

Cop Shows

First off, the three best cop shows of note happen to be quite recent. They are:

#1 The Wire (2002–2008)

if you haven’t watched it, why?

#2 The Shadow Line (2011– )

tough getting through the first episode.  but it really pays off after that.  all kinds of twists and turns and shit.  kind of like Lost but like better and realer.  a real thriller.  Must see.

#3 Southland (2009– )

gritty.  corrupt.  no one case per episode tied nicely in a little bow.

But, there are others, obviously. Lots of them suck. Most have three to four letter acronyms in their titles.

NTSF:SD:SUV (2011– )

pokes fun at them on adult swim but it’s pretty hard to parody something that is already a parody of itself.

There are a few newcomers this season, including:

Copper (2012– )

This season’s absolutely must watch can’t miss.  If you only have time for one show this would defiantly be a great choice.

The Bletchley Circle (2012– )

This is the shit right here.  these british bitches be all like getting on this case of this serial murder raper on their own they’re not even cops or anything cause their lives seem boring after years of service during the war.  doods will like the violence and the scary and chicks will love the period costumes.  bitches love period costumes.  I like the fuck out of this!

Elementary (2012– )

kind of sucks but i still watch it anyway.  Elementary and Sherlock on the BBC and Sherlock Holmes movies all have big problems with compliance to the source material. holmes ain’t holmes w/o his cocaine. and if there ain’t no gay closeted bullshit between holmes and watson there ain’t no story.

Consumerism

So after six weeks of absence I’m back. got a lot of lists for posts started up but just haven’t gotten around to posting with like words and stuff.  Coffee has changed my perspective slightly. You know sometimes you try to strike up a conversation with strangers in public and shit just doesn’t go as well as you’d hoped.  I’m not sure if no one understands me because I’m fucked up or because they’re fucked up or if the whole society as a whole is the culprit.  Thought I’d throw some titles about it out here right quick.

ReGeneration (2010)

I am too awash in ennui to write anything.

Pink Ribbons, Inc. (2011)

http://thinkbeforeyoupink.org/  We know almost nothing about cancer in general.  Cancer is a lot more complicated than people would like to think.  even detecting breast cancer and treating it may very well be shortening the lives of women as a whole, but is certainly shortening the lives of individuals in the population, which isn’t to say you shouldn’t get a mamogram, but is to say that life can’t be boiled down into a 30 second sound bite.  No one knows where ‘the cure’ will come from.  But, We do know that buying pink crap, and walking en mas will not help.

One Way to Valhalla (2009)

why do we live the lives that we do?  eating the same boring food.  taking the same drugs.  buing the same crap, that we just throw away.  days turn into decades.  still, the same meaningless goals take priority over our lives.  Then one day, BAM! head injury.

99 francs (2007)

Ahhhhh… cynical surrealism, how you comfort me so.

Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media (1992)

The far right and the far left have so much more in common than most people would admit.

Yo  holler back!  Have you been watching anything?  Or, just drawing and writing?  Somebody write a comment about this!  Recommend further watching and books and articles and shit.

God Bless America (and killing too, very very much)

Firstly I’d like to thank the owner for letting me be a part of this.

CYANLIANAS you are awesome.

onto more important matters.

Awesome new movie that’s hardly got any press. Have you ever wanted to see a middle-aged suicidal man become bestest best friends with a 13 year-old girl and then go on a cross country killing spree, like together, as a team? HAVE I GOT A MOVIE FOR YOU!

See the thing is

I WANT TO KILL PEOPLE

I WANT TO SMASH THEIR HEADS AND WATCH THEM BLEED

And, watching people kill other people on the screen makes me happy. Jhonen C. Vasquez wrote a lot of super anyltical smart guy crap that i don’t really neccessarily agree with in introductions to some of his releases of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. But who cares about all that crap. Let’s talk muvee!

Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr

Joel Murray and Tara Lynne Barr

Starring Joel Murray(the crazy dad with the clowns that calls his daughter a whore and kills himself in Shameless US) and Tara Lynne Barr(It’s okay if you want to have sex with her she’s eighteent folks)

From the press package:

Frank (Joel Murray) has had enough of the downward spiral of American

culture. Divorced, recently fired, and possibly terminally ill, Frank truly has nothing left
to live for. But instead of taking his own life, he buys a gun and decides to take out his
frustration on the cruelest, stupidest, most intolerant people he can imagine — starting
with some particularly odious reality television stars.

Frank finds an unusual accomplice in a high-school student named Roxy (Tara Lynne
Barr), who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. Together they embark on a
nationwide assault on our country’s most irritating celebrities . . .

Written and Directed by taboo-busting filmmaker and comedian Bobcat Goldthwait
(Shakes the Clown, Sleeping Dogs Lie, World’s Greatest Dad), GOD BLESS
AMERICA is a truly dark and very funny comedy for anyone who’s had enough of the
dumbing down of our society.

Bobcat Goldthwait,

Bobcat Goldthwait,

Written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait who i rly only think of as Mr. Floppy from Unhappily Ever After.  Apparently him and Jimmy Kimmel have some sort of semi scret homoerotic relationship going on.  Dude hasn’t worked without him for like at least a decade.  And, when did he get a haircut?  His voice still sounds distinctively like shit though so i guess there is that.

So, it has two of the elements of a great film; there is violence and fire.  But, not nearly enough sex.  Although there is sexual tension.  Two out of three!!

Followup: Letter to and Response from MEP Amelia Andersdotter

Shadow Rapporteur – Best. Job. Ever.

I sent a boilerplate letter yesterday to all the EU MEPs involved with ACTA that I acquired thanks to [falkvinge.net]  Here is the response I got roughly 24 hours later.

Let me also mention that this EU politician can schmooz you way better than any US/Texas politician I’ve had communications with.  After all, she is a Shadow Rapporteur [and she’s behind me right now making me type all of this hel-…]

Thank you very much for your message. As rapporteur in the ITRE committee, I was able to convince my colleagues to follow my recommendation to reject ACTA in ITRE. I will continue to campaign for the European Parliament to assume its political responsibility to its citizens and reject ACTA, without first referring it to the European Court of Justice. Therefore, in my role as shadow rapporteur in the INTA committee, I will present the manifold objections to ACTA to the members of the committee before the vote, and ask them to vote in favour of MEP David Martin’s report. 

As all committees that have already voted on ACTA agree, ACTA is a threat to human rights, it cements an outdated copyright regime and privatises law enforcement. The intransparent negotiation process of ACTA must not be accepted by the European Parliament. 

I would like to give my thanks to you and all other activists who speak up against ACTA. Without the overwhelming protest from the internet and from the streets, ACTA would not have gotten the necessary attention to facilitate an honest debate about its ramifications. People like you who keep up the pressure against ACTA can not be thanked enough, as you don’t rely upon ACTA being defeated after the successful votes in ITRE, LIBE, JURI and DEVE. Only after ACTA’s rejection in the plenary on July 3 to 5 can we afford to celebrate.

Thank you very much for your support and keep up the good work,

MEP Amelia Andersdotter
