computer_boy: [NEWS] "V" For Vox Populi

Remember, remember, the *Sixth* of November...

“V” Meets The Secret Service

On Monday, November 6, 2006, “V” visited security check points at the White House, the main Treasury, IRS and Justice Department Buildings and the Capitol.

“V’s” purpose was to deliver the People’s Petitions for Redress of Grievances relating to the Government’s violations of the war powers, tax, privacy and money clauses of the Constitution, and to inform key Government officials that at least 100 more “Vs” would be at their doorstep on November 14th expecting a response to the Petitions.

When an agent asked if “V” would remove his mask for identification purposes, “V” explained that would defeat the very purpose of the mask, which was to give expression to the fact that the nation was becoming a police state, that too many people were becoming afraid to be identified as dissenters or protestors, and that this was not in the long term interest of a free people. The agents accepted the veracity of “V’s” message and refrained from veering “V” from his vanguard visit as the vox populi.

The most disturbing part of “V’s” interaction with the law enforcement authorities at DOJ occurred when the Homeland Security agent in charge asked “V” what was the purpose behind “V’s” presence at DOJ. “V” began to explain the First Amendment freedoms and the Right to Petition. Almost immediately the agent said, in effect, “You’re pulling my leg. You are trying to pull a fast one. I’m not falling for the garbage. I don’t want to hear it.”

All local and federal law enforcement agencies in DC now know the purpose of these events is to show peaceful support for the First Amendment Right to Petition Government for Redress of Grievances and to give expression to the fact that too many Americans are beginning to fear the Government and that that is unhealthy to the longevity of a free people and our Republic.</a>

All participants are asked to arrive at Lafayette Park between 11 and 11:30 am on the 14th.

This looks like a fun story to watch!
(Also, bear in mind that the above paragraphs are a quick snippet - the article is LONGER.)

If you're in the DC area and have a spare V outfit, GO FOR IT! :D

metaphorism: the animus fadeth.

Okay, so it apears the Animus saga is finally over. The last couple of months, you may have noticed this symbol around Adelaide:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

After seeing these things around a bit, I then heard about the website www.animuscult.com. Basically, the front page had a ticker counting down to the night of Friday 13th October. Throughout the rest of the site, there was some vague rhetoric about no longer putting up with paedophiles and rapists etc. The forum was full of rumours about a nocturnal, trenchcoated vigilante protecting the innocent of Adelaide, and there were a few hazy photos and videos to boot.
Of course, I became instantly suspicious; if there really was a rapist found with his throat pulled out, surely The Advertsier would have mentioned it. So as Friday the 13th approached, I did a bit of Googling. Turns out it's all a marketing campaign for an Adelaide-made independant film ('THE ANIMUS COMETH')by a guy called Allen Reid. Some kind of kung-fu movie, apparently.

Okay, so that's all very interesting. But Reid hasn't updated his website in a fair while, and there was never any indication as to where we were supposed to be when the counter clicked zero. I signed up to join the Animus cult, and if I'd have known the location of the premiere, I totally would have gone. But there was never anything like that; the hype died on its arse. There are mixed mixed reports about the quality of the film, which is to be expected for an independant film, especially a genre-piece. But it's such a shame that this guy would put so much effort into painting these symbols all around Adelaide and then foget something so tiny, yet so crucial.

metaphorism: static cling.

Okay, this is going to sound pretty Way Out West... but does anyone know where on the FM radio bandwidth I can get some really clean static? I've found plenty of 'noisy' sections on the bandwidth, but there's faint whisperings of talk-back radio in the background.
Or, failing a frequency, is there any website where I can get a lengthy recording of clean white noise? Wikipedia only has a 30 second clip.

To find out why White Noise is the coolest thing ever, click here. But Creationists shouldn't click, because there's a lot of stuff about the proof of Big Bang theory. It also has nothing to do with Adelaide, but I guess it explains why I'm on the hunt for it.Collapse )

computer_boy: The Funny Side Of North Korea's Weaponry.

I read:

"Pyongyang may be preparing to test-fire a long-range Taepodong-2 ballistic missile."

And my first thoughts were:

SO sounds like "Type o'dong!" (certainly a LONG one!)
Or the sound of the missile being rubber band launched and impact.

computer_boy: [Futurama] A Terrifying Message From Al Gore!

To fill the gap between rewatching old Futurama and new Futurama for the time being, This is a trailer for Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth.

(And yes, Billy West and John DiMaggio helped him, as did Matt Groening, David X Cohen, Richard Sakai and the team at Rough Draft, the animators behind Futurama itself.)
