Something I forgot to put up on Tumblr. this is the album cover I did for my ex-roommate’s Anarchist chiptunes album. that’s a picture of him doing the music with the game boys. he looks exactly like that. you can download the album for free here which you should do because it doesn’t suck.
To another hundred years of chiptunes!

Former CIA Officer John Kiriakou Charged with Disclosing Covert Officer’s Identity and Other Classified Information to Journalists and Lying to CIA’s Publications Review Board
From Greenwald:

This is all accomplished by characterizing disclosures in American newspapers about America’s wrongdoing as “aiding the enemy” (the alleged enemy being informed is Al Qaeda, but the actual concern is that the American people learn what their government is doing). As The New York Times‘ Charlie Savage wrote this morning, Obama has brought “more such cases than all previous presidents combined,” and by doing so, has won the admiration of the CIA and other intelligence agencies which, above all else, loathe transparency (which happens to be the value that Obama vowed to provide more of than any President in history).

Who’s Who of the Occupy Movement: Mark Ruffalo, activist & actor
Mark Ruffalo isn’t merely expressing support for OWS; he’s showing it. Between tweeting straight from Zuccotti Park to protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline, his involvement has been greatly environmentally-focused. His anti-fracking, pro-solar energy sentiments have unveiled how corruption & corporate interest in our government have destroyed our environment. 
Now, more climate change, oil drilling & energy issues have come to the forefront of Occupy discussions. Not only have corporate politics nearly diminished the American middle class, but it has destroyed land, air & water. 
Watch Ruffalo talk climate change at Zuccotti & explain the goals of OWS.

The Occupy Poster Project was born out of a love for print. This  seemed like the perfect opportunity to curate and create a body of  screenprinted posters that could be utilized by the people currently  protesting. We got in touch with some of our favorite designers and gave  them only a few stipulations: Design whatever you’d like, make it 20” x  30”, and 1 color. The project is ongoing as we continue to get in touch  with designers to contribute, and we are currently shipping these  prints out to organizations all over the world. 25% of all sales on this  site will be donated to the Occupy Wall Street Organization.

Homeless people “occupy” abandoned US homes

More than 700,000 homes owned by banks are empty in the US. Millions more properties risk falling to the same fate due to a foreclosure crisis.

But, fueled by popular anger at banks and financial institutions, the Occupy Wall Street movement recently promoted “home occupations” in 20 cities across the country.

And, the number of organisations facilitating these actions is growing.

Kristen Saloomey reports from Rochester, New York.

I’m gonna tell you fascists
You may be surprised
The people in this world
Are getting organized
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose

Check to see if your congressperson supports or opposes SOPA.

And hold them accountable if they are. Better yet, call them to let them know how you feel about them representing you.

Contact elected officials - http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml 
If you haven’t heard of SOPA, look into it NOW. It is a bill soon to be voted on by congress that is being pushed for by the MPAA and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It would give the government and corporations the power to shutdown and sue websites as well as web users under vaguely defined terms dealing with copyright. This bill could effectively shut down places like YouTube, Wikipedia and Tumblr, as well as jail users of such sites for up to FIVE YEARS, if they post any copyrighted material. Get out there and spread the word. Don’t let them take the internet from us!
