50 Shades of Grayskull

Here it is, for folks who had this thought: I cannot go another day without a 50 Shades of Gray parody that involves He-Man.

You have your wish, and it’s AWESOME!

Michigan Capitol Vagina Monologues

Alright folks!!

Courtesy of the Rochestor Citizen, we’re proud to bring you the prologue to the performance of the Vagina Monologues that took place on the Capitol Steps in protest of the House in Michigan declaring that the word “Vagina” is OFFENSIVE.

It’s a VAGINA. You shouldn’t be messing around with it if you can’t TALK about it!

Enjoy!

 

Chase/Occupy Mashup

Keeping the political mashup theme going, here’s an excellent one combining a Chase rewards card commercial celebrating the virtues of love and family with footage of police brutality from various Occupy Wall Street moments.

Everyone needs to feel the love, right?

Virgin Mobile says forget AT&T, join the party!

OMG, I love this ad!! Virgin Mobile mocks the proposed merger, urging customers to come join the fun! The best part: the girl standing in for Carly has an awesome line at the very end while the creepy old guy representing AT&T is moving in on her. Be sure to hang in for it!

She Is Every Poor American

This. I wept openly when I read it. This is what America is coming to when we turn our backs on those who need more help than a grudgingly given check.

A woman who is unemployed, on welfare, homeless and has already been turned away from shelter, tried to sell her three day old baby at a local Taco Bell.

She has nowhere left to go, and now she’s in jail.

While our politicians have been posturing about living within our means, this woman has been trying to live on money they could never comprehend.

When they talk about the housing crisis, they don’t see the thousands who have nowhere to go. In cities across this once great nation of ours, people are turned away from shelters every night. Shelters are fast becoming part of the problem, not a solution.

John Boehner wants to make sure his daughters have Social Security when they retire. This woman didn’t even see how she could keep her son. And he’s only been on the planet for THREE DAYS.

This is America hitting bottom. We should all be deeply ashamed. I know I am.

 

J35T3R and Xerxes In Action

Here is a YouTube video of J35T3R’s Xerxes system in action. According to the interview I linked to in the last post, Xerxes is so finely tuned that only the site J35T3R wants to flatline is targeted. No intermediary sites are damaged.

Even with my limited computer knowledge, this is impressive and seems to have limitless potential.

Westboro Baptist Site Back Up

A hacktivist named the j35t3r took out all of WBC’s websites in March through…

UPDATE: I’VE JUST BEEN TOLD BY J35T3R THAT HE DOES NOT USE A DDOS ATTACK FOR HIS HACKTIVISM. WE WILL BE COMMUNICATING A BIT AND I WILL BE DOING MORE RESEARCH OVER GOOGLE TO MAKE SURE I GET THIS RIGHT.

More updates soon.

In the meantime, here is a link to an article where J35T3R discusses his self-created Xerxes system in more detail. Since I know next to nothing about computers, it may take me a couple hours to figure this out. Be back soon! I have too much respect for what J35T3R does to get this wrong.

For folks who come here regularly, you know we’ve been following The j35t3r’s mini war with Westboro Baptist Church. A couple of months ago he knocked out all of their websites. Last time we checked on march 25th, they were still down.  http://bit.ly/elS12q

It had been awhile since I wrote a post about this, so I stopped by the site Down for Everyone or Just Me to see if anything had changed. I was shocked to see that WBC is back up and running! I suppose all good things must come to an end eventually. Then I realized I had stopped keeping track of the amount of downtime. My assumption had been that they were permanently down for the count, so I’d gotten lazy about updating.


I decided to reach out to J35t3r on Twitter.  I wanted to make sure the amount of down time was correct and see if there was anything else he had to say.

J35t3r responded quickly. Final count? WBC was offline from 21st of March until the 7th of April. That’s 18 days of blissful, hate free internet. 🙂

J35t3r says that he’s working on phase two. I wish him the best, and will be eagerly watching.
