Lying Media Bastards

Internal Memo

Some meta-comments.

- the LMB radio show is now running weekly over at radioActive sanDiego (anarchists and their kuh-razy capitalization), Thursdays 1-3pm PST. I plan to record my first show tomorrow, and if the sound quality is decent, I’ll go ahead and upload the file so y’all can download and listen at your leisure.

- Strangely, the LMB site is mentioned in the sidebar of an article about movies and activism in the current edition of Filmmaker Magazine. The quote: “Many of the new blogs, like the succinctly named Lying Media Bastards, fight the system with blow-by-blow challenges to news reports.” While I don’t know if my title is “succint”, I guess that is kinda what I do.

- I have a second blog now, called New Noise, over at the website of (one of my) day job(s), Axis of Justice. It’s just started, and I’ll need a bit of time to find the right tone and content. It’s sorta like LMB, but aimed at a younger audience, and focuses more on activism and music. I guess this puts me in the rank of “paid blogger”, except that I don’t get paid any more now than before we started the blog… which maybe means I’m blogging for free… dammit.

- My website statistics software tells me that people are posting this graphic I made all over their livejournals and messageboards:

It’s the LMB logo crossed with the sci-fi paranoia fest “They Live”. Not entirely sure why folks are so enthused about it, it actually looks kinda crappy to me.

- My attempt to upgrade my blog software has ended in a stalemate. I didn’t mess up what’s already here, but the upgrade refuses to take. Anyone with any WordPress advice, please drop me a line.

  1. As all Germans love David Hasselhoff, everybody loves They Live. Everybody.

  2. I liked how “South Park” used the fight scene in “They Live as the model for the fight between Timmy and the kid with warped legs. The last scene of “They Live” is a classic.

  3. This is why it’s being hotlinked like a McGriddle.
