Canada DOES Make Good Music

We take a break from the Batman spam for something pretty cool. Check out this rising star Kathleen Edwards! She produces some really melodic tunes.



I first downloaded Change the Sheets when it was a free single of the week on iTunes and got hooked instantly. Now I have the entire Voyageur album and not a single "meh" at all. Highly recommend it!

SOPA and PIPA = Temporarily Pwned






















So it seems we've won...at least for now. SOPA is only being sent back to the drawing board, but as long as we have crazy politicians the battle is never over. Not to mention there's still ACTA til deal with in Europe.

The only unfortunate thing is that Megaupload and Megavideo were taken down. That's thanks to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act however, not SOPA.

Save the Internet!

Say no to SOPA and PIPA! Don't know what I'm talking about?

Be enlightened.

Or if you don't like reading, check out these videos:

PROTECT IP / SOPA Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.





On top of all the things mentioned in those videos, the concept of fan sites would be destroyed. The hilarious Garfield Minus Garfield wouldn't have existed under SOPA. The brony phenomenon never would have happened without the Internet. Much of the YouTube community will be destroyed if SOPA passes. Even this harmless blog will be in danger of being taken down. The past two entries alone were about the Batman, and that's without going into the rest of my almost 100 post history.

Yes of course companies should be allowed to combat theft of their materials. They would lose potential profits otherwise, but the way SOPA and PIPA will do things are much too extreme and make our Internet like China's. Is that something we really want to aspire to? *Insert bad joke about 2012 being the end of the Internet here*

Husky Gruff Voice Time

HURURURURUR


*Sneak sneak sneak*
*Does Ranjit How I Met Your Mother impression* HELLO!

In other words, Batman Arkham Asylum is awesome. Downloaded it from the Mac App Store, no regrets. Can't seem to find the Joker DLC although I do have the map packs. At first I thought I should wait for Arkham City to be ported but that will probably take years.
