You probably remember the online outrage over the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) copyright enforcement proposal. Last week, the Department of Commerce's Internet Policy Task Force released a report on digital copyright policy that endorsed one piece of the controversial proposal: making the streaming of copyrighted works a felony.

This man has been such a deception.

Oh, wow. Someone actually got it. ;)

Is that a Venture Brothers reference in your handle? I just re-watched season 1 last week.

I've been a Sunny Day fan since Diary. I actually have an extra autographed copy of The Rising Tide somewhere if you want it. Got it for an ex, but didn't really think that purchase through. Happens. If you want, I can dig it up and mail it to you (seriously). My email addy is yourloose.ass[at]gmail. It's my junk catch all account so don't read too much into the crudeness. It's more meant for spammy web masters to read and ponder.

I once mailed a stranger I met in a bar a burger wrapper from Sonic (the burger joint) because he didn't believe they existed. Sometimes, you gotta encourage people to chase their dreams using unorthodox methods.

And yeah, my handle is a Venture Bros reference, but if I had my druthers I'd change it. I'd probably use a Ween reference now, or maybe Melvins. I'm sometimes tempted to create a new account for just that reason but I have such a low UID here and what I think is the highest moving average comment score on the site that changing IDs seems crazy. Can't give those things up on a whim. You'd lose internet points.

On an unrelated note, I'd kick the shit out of Dean Venture if I ever met him again. C'est la vie.

Also, a coworker pointed out I should've attributed that Hicks quote to Jeff Dunham just to mess with people. A missed opportunity I guess but something that made me smile, so I thought I'd share.
