Iron Sky is a move project funded in part by people who like the idea of the film. And what’s not to like. The Earth is about to be invaded by Nazis who escaped Germany in 1945 to build a secret moon base. After decades of constructing their swastika shaped base and marshaling their forces, they’re poised to launch their fleet of flying saucers and attack. Check out the trailer at their website:
The Pirate Bay is having trouble finding a host since the EU is hot on their tail and trying to shut them down. Fortunately, the Swedish Pirate Party has promised to help them out if elected to the Riksdag.
The Swedish Constitution is often ignored, but it contains an interesting detail. It says that MPs can not be sued or prosecuted for something that is done as part of their political mandate.In practice, this implies total immunity for any political action taken within this working environment. Some of the Pirate Party’s prospective MPs intend to use this to host the entire Pirate Bay from inside the parliament, if today’s operators of the site accept this and if we win a place in parliament in the Swedish elections on September 19.
Heh…There’s something poetic about hosting Pirate Bay in the legislative body that’s tried to outlaw it that I find kind of appealing. Gotta love those Swedes. I’m particularly unsympathetic to the entertainment industry after talking to a co-worker who wanted to purchase a DVD of a favorite movie but was presented with one special edition with deleted scenes and another with interviews and commentary. Doesn’t such a blatant and shabby attempt to fleece fans really just ask them to tell the entertainment complex to go eff themselves and encourage piracy?
Let’s just keep ginning up the fear machine. That’s why, apparently, the Louisiana legislature was convinced that what their citizens really needed was to be able to protect themselves by carrying concealed firearms in highly dangerous places like…churches. ‘Cause church crime is really at epidemic levels.
