COD: Modern Warfare 2

As a longtime fan of the Call of Duty video game series, I can't wait for the November release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Posted below it's the official trailer, which is pretty mind-blowing if you watch it in HD. My only question is how they are going to top COD 5's Nazi Zombies...

A New Weekly Segment!

As a follow up to the video I posted of Steven Anderson, the Baptist pastor, getting bludgeoned by the Arizona State Border Patrol, I have decided to introduce a new weekly segment to my blog called "Fuck the Police." Police abuse their authority so often that it will be no problem for me to find ridiculous each week about corrupt or unlawful behavior by the boys in blue. Take, for instance, this story and video (below) about five Birmingham, Alabama cops beating an [already] unconscious suspect after a high-speed chase. Thankfully, justice was served and the five officers were dishonorably discharged and stripped of their badges. Also, I've been trying to follow up on the Pastor's court case, but the few articles I found indicated that he is still exploring his legal options.

Prison Sucks

Convicted Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols, now serving a life sentence in the Florence, Colo., "Supermax" prison, filed a 39-page federal lawsuit in March alleging unconstitutional "cruel and unusual punishment" because the refined-food, low-fiber meals give him "chronic constipation (and) bleeding hemorrhoids." He demanded fresh raw vegetables and other high-fiber foods, necessary to "keep one's body (i.e., God's holy temple) in good health." Nichols was joined in the lawsuit by fellow Supermax resident Eric Rudolph (the convicted abortion-clinic and Atlanta Olympics bomber), who claimed "gas and stomach cramps" and observed that "our bodies" are "sacred and should be treated as such." Interesting statement because, by Rudolph's logic, pipe bombing one's body is perfectly okay.

Police Brutality

The first video posted is footage from inside Baptist pastor Steven Anderson's car when Anderson was stopped and brutalized by the U.S. Border Patrol. The play by play is given, firsthand, in the second video (I know it's long) by the Baptist pastor himself so check both videos out if you wanna get the full scoop.

Is it really possible to get over 1,000 miles out of single tank of gas? If you are a hypermiler, you know this to be true. GETV's new field contributor Scott Stead, in Washington, DC, has been following the Ford 1000 Mile Challenge. Hypermiling is simply a method of driving that optimizes your gas tank to adapt to the rise and fall of oil prices. Featured in this video are Wayne Gerdes, the original hypermiler, and NASCAR drive Carl Edwards.

Zombie Fire Ants

According to a Texas A&M study, biting, territorial fire ants cost the Texas economy about $1 billion annually by damaging electrical equipment. So, to combat this problem, scientists came up with the only logical course of action- turn them into zombies. To achieve this feat, researchers will introduce tiny phorid flies that lay eggs in the ants brain. The eggs will eventually hatch and literally eat the brain. The whole process, which is designed to control, not eliminate the ant population, is actually pretty incredible: the ant will get up and wander for about two weeks while the maggot feeds, said Rob Plowes, a research associate at the University of Texas at Austin. "There is no brain left in the ant, and the ant just starts wandering aimlessly," he said. About a month after the egg is laid, the ant's head falls off and a new fly emerges ready to attack another fire ant. Seriously, as if fire ants weren't fucked up enough- someone had to make them zombies. Whoever originally devised this idea is probably a complete psycho.

Byron York's "New 3/5 Compromise"

President Obama's approval ratings are at a soaring 67%. However, according to Washington Examiner Op-Ed columnist Byron York, that number may not be completely accurate. York stated last week that, "his sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are." This is very reminiscent of our founding father's three fifths compromise, in which black [slaves] were only given 3/5 of a vote. It is a fact that all Democratic politicians are more popular among blacks than whites, so York spinning this trend as a unique attribute of Obama's is, well, obscenely racist. He's basically saying, "African" Americans make it hard to gauge the opinions of "actual" Americans. Wow, what a shithead.

New "alternative" energy uses more fossil fuels??

Thanks to an obscure tax provision, the United States government stands to pay out as much as $8 billion this year to the ten largest paper companies. And get this: even though the money comes from a transportation bill whose manifest intent was to reduce dependence on fossil fuel, paper mills are adding diesel fuel to a process that requires none in order to qualify for the tax credit. In other words, we are paying the industry, handsomely, to use more fossil fuel.

The origins of the credit are innocent enough. In 2005 Congress passed, and George W. Bush signed, the $244 billion transportation bill. It included a variety of tax credits for alternative fuels such as ethanol and biomass. But it also included a fifty-cent-a-gallon credit for the use of fuel mixtures that combined "alternative fuel" with a "taxable fuel" such as diesel or gasoline.

Enter the paper industry. Since the 1930s the overwhelming majority of paper mills have employed what's called the kraft process to produce paper. Here's how it works. Wood chips are cooked in a chemical solution to separate the cellulose fibers, which are used to make paper. The remaining liquid, a sludge containing lignin (the structural glue that binds plant cells together), is called black liquor. Because it's so rich in carbon, black liquor is a good fuel; the kraft process uses the black liquor to produce the heat and energy necessary to transform pulp into paper. It's a neat, efficient process that's cost-effective without any government subsidy.

The Video Is Here

Page and Drake finally made a video for Page's single, "I'm Still Fly." The video is alright, but check out Page looking like a black Aladdin when he's wearing that vest in the club scene near the end.

Corpus Extremus

Australian performance artist wants to transform his body into a portal on the Internet. Which is why visitors to Exit Art, a gallery in Midtown Manhattan, are being treated to a video of Stelarc’s left arm being cut up like a rare tenderloin to implant what will eventually be a Bluetooth-enabled artificial ear.

Stelarc’s video is one the more grisly highlights of “Corpus Extremus (LIFE+),” an exhibit about the wonders and horrors of “PostNatural History,” and the ways in which technology is blurring the traditional notions of life, death and identity.

In the gallery of postnatural history, for example, is a goat that has been genetically tinkered with to produce spider silk, useful for fishing line and bulletproof vests, in its milk. Elsewhere you can look through a microscope and see a movie projected on living cells, watch a movie of Russian cosmonauts examining grains of kefir, a yogurtlike drink popular in Russia, to determine the grains’ potential worthiness as “cosmonauts,” or see a mock documentary about an S&M organic farm collective.

In an earlier project, Stelarc wired half his muscles to computers in Paris, Helsinki, and Amsterdam to understand a semi-controllable "split-body experience." His self-appraisal? "I'm never in my comfort zone."

Let the Beat Build

Nyle Emerson, an NYU senior, has recently begun to make a name for himself across the internet for his impressively simple video “Let the Beat Build.” The video has swept its way across hip hop blogs and gone legitimately viral, garnering over 10,000 hits in just three days. This video was filmed in one take, with audio being recorded simultaneously with the film. The video features Nyle and is produced by Last Pictures and 194 Recordings.

Busta, Wayne, & Jada

Here's a brand new video by Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, and Lil Wayne for their collab called, "Respect My Conglomerate." The video is alright, but there are a few funny things to point out: how high Busta kicks when he says, "you're about to get your ass kicked." (What a clown). Also, great cameos from Xzibit, Tyrese, and Idris Elba who, for those of you who watched HBO's The Wire know, played Stringer Bell. The beat is also sick- same beat as KiD CuDi's Takeover Freestyle off his DatNewCudi Presents: The '09 Mix mixtape.
