Internet Pirates Beware! Biggest BitTorrent case in U.S. History!

John Rambo says, "They drew first blood."  My friend Steve says, "Fuckin Stallone... they should pay us to watch the new Stallone flick!"

Wired reports: "At least 23,000 file sharers soon will likely get notified they are being sued for downloading the Expendables in what has become the single largest illegal-BitTorrent-downloading case in U.S. history.

A federal judge in the case has agreed to allow the U.S. Copyright Group to subpoena internet service providers to find out the identity of everybody who had illegally downloaded (.pdf) the 2010 Sylvester Stallone flick — meaning the number of defendants is likely to dramatically increase as new purloiners are discovered. Once an ISP gets the subpoena, it usually notifies the account holder that his or her subscriber information is being turned over to the Copyright Group, which last year pioneered the practice of suing BitTorrent downloaders in the United States.

Subpoenas are expected to go out this week."

Schwarzenegger has better one-liners anyways.

Penectomy leads to humiliation fetish.

Eh... I don't pass judgement.  If I did I wouldn't have any friends.

Vice Magazine reports: "Having fully functioning, fully intact genitals is something most of us take for granted. But some people, like Jim, are not so lucky. Jim accidentally shot off most of his penis while serving as a soldier in Vietnam. He was just 18 at the time, and has since struggled with his sexual identity as he is unable to have penetrative sex. I talked to Jim–now 56 and living in Orlando–about how his fluke penectomy has transformed him into a sex freak, in more ways than one."

Semen is an Antidepressant.

Is your woman really moody all the time?  Tell that bitch to just swallow and chill the fuck out.

Read what Popular Science has to say: "Back in 2002, psychologists at the State University of New York at Albany published a study in theArchives of Sexual Behavior looking at the potential role of semen in alleviating depression in women. The researchers presented evidence supporting an earlier hypothesis that the hormones in semen have a mood-boosting effect on women. For any woman who has had sex -- and enjoyed it -- this may not come as a huge surprise.

Cut to this past February. Lazar Greenfield, the incoming president of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), wrote a short Valentine's Day-themed editorial about mating in Surgery News. In it, he discussed the sex lives of fruit flies, rotifers and humans. He cited the SUNY Albany study before concluding: "So there's a deeper bond between men and women than St. Valentine would have suspected, and now we know there's a better gift for that day than chocolates." That gift, of course, being semen."

Yeah.  I thought so woman.

 

Robert Johnson: blues legend - More satanic than Slayer.

If you haven't heard the legend of the crossroads, it's that mystical place where you meet the devil to exchange your soul for success and talent.  The story originated with Robert Johnson, a 1930's blues artist who died at the age of 27 (the first musical "legend" to die at that tender age).  This legend would be perpetuated by the song "Crossroads" originally "Cross Road Blues" written by Johnson himself, later recorded by countless artists such as Clapton.  The story would also be retold in a movie featuring the Karate Kid himself, Ralph Macchio, and guitar wizard Steve Vai aptly titled Crossroads.  100 years after his birth, people still investigate the mystery and controversy surrounding one of history's biggest musical legends.

Robert Johnson

Robert Johnson circa 1935.

NPR reports: "Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Robert Johnson. Although he recorded just 29 songs, the bluesman had a huge influence on guitarists such as Eric Clapton and Keith Richards. Johnson is one of the most studied of all country blues musicians, and he's been the subject of many books, films and essays. But the mythology surrounding his life just won't go away.

If you know anything about Johnson, chances are it's the story that he sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads in exchange for his musical talent. That legend reached a mainstream audience with the 1986 movie Crossroads, starring Joe Seneca and Ralph Macchio.

But according to folklorist Barry Lee Pearson, it didn't happen.

"The popular mythology has him as a total loner," Pearson says, "and kind of lived this life in regret as a repayment for his alleged sin of making a contract with Old Scratch."

Pearson, a professor at the University of Maryland and the co-author of the book Robert Johnson: Lost and Found, says none of it is true. In the absence of any real biographical information, Pearson says early blues writers got a little carried away.

"Everybody was so anxious to make this devil story true that they've been working on finding little details that can corroborate it," he says."
