David Bowie the Hobo Slayer – Hilarious Amateur Web Comic Deluxe

David Bowie the Hobo Slayer

This is a good excuse for me to try out the “Publish Link” option on WordPress.  That’s so I know what to expect and how I can use it in the future.

HOWEVER!

That being said, this link is to a Hilarious Web Comic known as David Bowie the Hobo Slayer.  If you have no idea what I’m talking about, or are already offended by reading the title, good!  Go read the comic.  It’s funny, childish, the art is crappy-awesome and you can tell the author, who goes by the moniker The Nonsequitaur, spends a lot of time on these.

I can totally appreciate this, because when I was little, like in 7th grade I started doing a comic, just for my friends and I to read called, “Superdope”.  Basically it was a goofy, funny, hilarious comic where the hero, Superdope, got powers to fight crime by doing things like smoking a joint, or snorting cocaine or basically, doing some sort of drug.  Maybe this sounds a little Non-PC for a kid to be writing about in 7th grade, but it was meant to be funny and ridiculous, much like David Bowie the Hobo Slayer is.

The thing is, my friends started writing their own comics and we would share them.  That is until the evil Villainess, Sister Thomas Mary confiscated an unfinished episode from me, read it in a boomingly unpleasant voice to embarrass me in front of the entire class, and then called my parents to try and have me expelled from school.

Needless to day my parents even sided with me, but it sort of put a dampener on my comic days because I quickly left that school and went to a public school where I didn’t have many friends to share my comics with.

Who knows, if I was encouraged vs discouraged, I might have become another Stan Lee…

But fuck all that sad shit.  This guy is the next generation of goofy, amateur comic writing.  So GO NOW and check out his site.

I said NOW!!!

Do You Love the Internet? Well, Kiss it Goodbye!!

(By the way, this is VERY CURRENT.  They are trying to pass this RIGHT NOW, as I am posting this.)

I wanted to bring something to your attention.  I have a post from before where I talk about random conspiracy theories and the people behind it, bent on control and power and some of them that want your money.  It’s a lot to fit into one post, but at the same time it’s enough to get someone who cares a lot to start investigating this stuff themselves.  That past was called “Is It Really Racism or Is It Just a Tool?” and seems to be one of my most popular articles over the course of existence of my blog.

But now something else in the same sort of, “people trying to control what you and I do and Slip it under the Radar while we’re not paying attention…” vein is  taking place with the internet.  If you don’t watch or read anything else in this article PLEASE do YOURSELF a favor and watch the following video.  It’s something that YOU, that is if you enjoy using sites like wordpress, facebook, youtube, tumblr, soundcloud, or pretty much any other website you enjoy right now, including your blog if you have one, will be affected by.  Check it out.  It’s only 4 minutes but I promise you will be very glad you watched this.

The wording in the bill is BROAD and VAGUE so that means that they can pretty much take this as far as they would like it to go.  They can begin censoring sites for whatever they feel is a violation of their rules and regulations.  They can find one thing in your blog they may consider a copyright violation and, BAM, your blog is no more.  They can fine your or sue you or at the very least have your account closed on a website like facebook, for you posting lyrics to your favorite song.

Ok, but who cares about all that, right?  But one thing they did not really touch upon so much is the gateway.  They did mention it a little, but only as a blurb.  What happens once they pass a bill like this?  That’s right.  They open the door for MORE bills, even more restrictive and rights threatening than the original bills, trailblazing the way to new and innovative forms of censorship across the board.

Censorship with SOPA and PIPA

Censorship could become the NEW STANDARD.  And that’s really what this is all about.  This is like a gateway drug into a whole mess of censorship laws, regulations, and who knows what else.  All because some rich, fat, Hollywood producer or record company fat cat can try to stifle growing technology in the name of preserving their pocketbook.  But not only that, trust that there are people behind this bill who would just totally love to take the rights of the average citizen away.

Anyway, I’m not gonna ramble on and on about this.  If you google or youtube “SOPA” you will be able to keep yourself busy for hours and hours of entertainment and education.  You can learn more about this, but if you are already convinced that this is a fucked up thing these cats are trying to pass, then you can always click the picture below.  If you scroll down a little you can fire off a letter to congress.  Or if you are extremely passionate you can always go to a town hall meeting.

Stop SOPA and PIPA

Incidentally, today was my first day of orientation at my new bar.  I will keep you updated, but I wanted to make sure I put this up since, seriously, they are trying to pass this garbage pretty much right now.
