This is a killer documentary about media and piracy - check it out, give it a few minutes, it’s decent.
In the spirit of abject denial, disgrace, and shame (shock, awe, incredulity, anger, misanthropy) at the Patriots loss in the Superbowl, we are boycotting posting today. If you want to hear some conspiracy theories, read our arch page.

Congrats to the NY Giants for defeating the Goliath-like Patriots. We thought we had it in the bag, but that’s why they play the game! If not for you meddling kids…
I saw this myself on the news when it was first proposed. I’m not sure what’s going on with itm but thanks to Ben for the video link.
Those of you who regularly read our site (aka real cats) know that we try to keep you up to date with what’s going on in the world with relevant documentaries on a weekly basis. Last week we had one on dolls-. That being said, this one is a little old but accurately explains the Enron controversy. It also elucidates the California brownout issue and even goes as far as to call out Arnold Schwarzenegger.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=972394030048527048
If you haven’t seen it, it’s a good watch.
You thought we’d never get back to this, didn’t you? Yeah we’ve been covering this ninja ever since he got accused of defrauding the government. Last time we talked about him he was hiding out in Namibia (like a true ninja) a country without an extradition treaty with the U.S. Entertainment Weekly had an interesting article about him near the end of December, which was purportedly his first attempt to "speak out" about the charges. As an answer to the question, well, nothing.
For much of the past decade, Snipes has been mired in one legal scandal and publicity nightmare after another. Some of these were due to bad luck. Others seem to have been the result of bad judgment. And yet others, like the federal tax-fraud indictment Snipes currently faces, are so convoluted and downright bizarre that it’s hard to figure out who’s to blame.
Snipes has remained silent through it all. He’s sat by as his reputation has taken devastating hits and offers from the major Hollywood studios have dried up. He’s allowed other people to unspool the strange details of his once charmed life in the press. And considering his silence, it was easy to jump to the conclusion that maybe those rumors and accusations against him were true.
But on a wintry morning last month at his home in suburban New Jersey, Snipes finally agreed to talk. The only question is whether it’s too late. After all, Snipes’ career isn’t the only thing that’s in jeopardy. His freedom is too. Because next month, Snipes will stand before a jury that may convict him and send him to prison for 16 years.

A US counter-terrorism police officer who says he failed a drugs test because his wife spiked his meatballs with marijuana is suing to get his job back.
Anthony Chiofalo, of New York Police Department (NYPD), has asked Manhattan Supreme Court to challenge his firing.
He was suspended in 2005 after 22 years of service, for failing a random test.
His wife told investigators she had secretly drugged his meatballs hoping a failed test would force him to retire. NYPD said the story was "not credible".
Both Mr Chiofalo and his wife Catherine have passed lie detector tests about how the marijuana entered the police officer’s system. [link]
