Napster 2.0?

The owners of the Pirate Bay have posted today to confirm that they are indeed in the process of being bought out.  I hope the new owners can do something good with the beleaguered and much-loved Bit Torrent tracker site.  But I just have a suspicion that this will turn into Napster 2.0.  Here’s more info:

Just because I really like Midnight Oil

Midnight Oil was my favorite band of all time.  I still am unable to learn any of their songs on the ukulele because they’re so damn intricate.  Anyway, this is my favorite Oils video.  It’s a little disturbing, but it actually has a kind of sweet ending.  Would that globalization and corpratization end in a parallel fashion.

Just finished my chest piece and got it all cleaned up. Turned out pretty good. I may go back and add a little more shading after this heals, but overall I’m pretty pleased. The surgical tape holding it on hurt much more than the tattoo.

As if the original weren’t sickening enough…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The most horrible part is that, according to the bible, these people are dead on. That’s one of the ever-growing list of reasons why I don’t believe in the bible.

Jenny McCarthy Body Count

Jenny McCarthy Body Count
Yes, the vapid little goofball that all the jocks used to jerk off to has now graduated to instilling fear of legitimate medicine and contempt for those with autism.  This site tracks the morbidity and mortality associated with failure to vaccinate children.  McCarthy believes that not only is autism something that can be cured like a disease, but that she alone holds the keys to do so.  She also, to the contrary of every scrap of evidence, believes that vaccines cause autism.  I urge you to read over this site as well as for more information about this monster.  Pass it along.  Show people what she is.

I do believe sadly it’s going to take some diseases coming back to realize that we need to change and develop vaccines that are safe. If the vaccine companies are not listening to us, it’s their fucking fault that the diseases are coming back. They’re making a product that’s shit. If you give us a safe vaccine, we’ll use it. It shouldn’t be polio versus autism.

Kevin Smith protests Dogma

This just proves that these people didn’t even know what they were protesting.
