Your Weekend Justice #110: Clamato For The Soul

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that tries to have its cake and Edith too. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Or the owners of a lonely heart. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

Why We Think Parkour Is Cool

Daredevil and Spider-Man

Last time we spoke, I said I’d have more to say about Parkour at a later date. Well that date is now. Several weeks ago, the website AmericanParkour.com reported that Parkour had been explicitly banned, in name, in the Battery Park area of NYC. This caused a flurry of Internet reaction from those connected to or concerned with practicing the art of Parkour, including yours truly (see picture at right *ahem*).

Fortunately, when they issued an update on the situation, it became clear that we were all over-reacting, and that the supposed “parkour ban,” was really just the same NYC Law 2008/042 (File Int 0721-2008), “prohibiting climbing, jumping or suspending of oneself from structures.” This is for the best, because it means that traceurs (a term for those who practice the art) are not specifically prohibited from doing Parkour, provided they are in or on spaces and structures that have been approved for Parkour. Ideally, this means that the door is still open for those in the NYC Parkour community to have a conversation with those in power, to start working to craft more Parkour-friendly legislation. This can have multiple benefits.

How Not To React To The Internet Co-Opting Your TV

Global Frequency

Warren Ellis’ Global Frequency is relevant to my interests because it contains cogent explorations of weird science, magick (neurolinguistic programming, perceptual manipulation, and the scientific-type investigation of the darker recesses of the human psyche), Parkour (more on this at a later date), and biofeedback, among many other things. It’s been on my mind again lately because we’ve been watching a whole lot of John Rogers’ phenomenal series Leverage, and a friend of mine whom I introduced to the comic series arranged a Global Frequency photoshoot at Dragon*Con 2010, and then it’s been coming up on Twitter a whole bunch. All of this has me thinking about the injustice of television markets, and the capriciousness of Networks in the face of overwhelming clamour and demand from those who would be their core audience…

What do you mean, what the hell am I talking about?

Colors Are Overrated Digest #6

Nihilist chewing gum
  • A shirt for anyone who owns an R2 unit and could really use a manual. Like, for example, this droid apparently retroactively had rockets and could fly and shit. Why do they no longer work now that I’m in Episode IV and how do I order replacement parts for those bits?
  • Nihilist Chewing Gum. It has no flavor. I love it.
  • A how-to for making a black ribbon Halloween wreath. Nice. Found via Craftzine.
  • Here’s a hoodie for everyone’s favorite wish-there-were-more-issues-of-it Global Frequency. Scott sent this to me, but I guarantee I would look dumb as hell in a hoodie. So damn.
